Jesus is "a word" of Allah and a "spirit" from Allah
not your qur'an mention that jesus is kalimatullah - "the word of Allah
(swt)", as well as ruhullah - "the spirit of Allah", indicating his divinity?
[b]1. Jesus (pbuh) "is a word from allah" not "the word of allah"[/b]
The qur'an mentions in surah ali 'imran chapter 3 verse 45:
"behold! The angels said: o mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a
word from him: his name will be christ jesus. The son of mary, held in
honour in this world and the hereafter and of (the company of) those
nearest to allah. [al-qur'an 3:45]
Jesus (pbuh) is referred in the qur'an as a word from allah and not as 'the word of allah'.
"a word" of allah means a message of allah. If a person is referred to
as "a word" from allah, it means that he is a messenger or a prophet of
2. The title of a prophet (pbuh) does not mean that it exclusively belongs to that prophet (pbuh)
titles are given to different prophets (pbut). Whenever a title is
given to a prophet (pbuh), it does not necessarily mean that the other
prophets do not have the same characteristic or quality. For e.g.
Prophet abraham (pbuh) is referred to in the qur'an as khaleelullah, a
friend of allah. This does not indicate that all the other prophets
(pbuh) were not the friends of allah. Prophet moses (pbuh) is referred
to in the qur'an as kaleemullah, indicating that god spoke to him. This
does not mean that god did not speak to others. Similarly when jesus
(pbuh) is referred to in the qur'an as kalimatullah, "a word from
allah", it does not mean that the other prophets were not "the word," of
3. John the baptist (pbuh) is also called "a word" of allah
(pbuh) i.e. John the baptist (pbuh) is also referred to in the qur'an
as kalimatullah i.e. A word of allah in surah ali 'imran, chapter 3,
"there did zakariya pray to his lord, saying: "o my lord! Grant unto me
from thee a progeny that is pure: for thou art he that heareth prayer!
While he was standing in prayer in the chamber, the angels called unto
him: "allah doth give thee glad tidings of yahya, witnessing the truth
of a word from allah, and (be besides) noble, chaste, and a prophet - of
the (goodly) company of the righteous." [al-qur'an 3:39]
4. Jesus (pbuh) referred as ruhullah - a spirit of allah
Jesus (pbuh) also never referred to as ruhullah "a spirit of allah" but as a spirit from allah in surah nisa chapter 4 verse 171
"o people of the book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of
allah aught but the truth. Jesus christ the son of mary was (no more
than) a messenger of allah, and his word, which he bestowed on mary, and
a spirit proceeding from him: so believe in allah and his messengers.
Say not 'trinity': desist: it will be better for you: for allah is one
god: glory be to him: (far exalted is he) above having a son. To him
belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is allah as a
disposer of affairs."
5. Spirit of allah is breathed in every human beingA
spirit from allah does not indicate that jesus (pbuh) is god. The
qur'an mentions in several places that allah breathed into the human
beings "his spirit" in surah al-hijr, chapter 15 verse 29 in surah
sajdah, chapter 32 verse 9
Surah al hijr chapter 15 verse 29
"when i have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of my spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him." [al-qur'an 15:29]
Surah sajdah chapter 32 verse 9
"but he fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something
of his spirit. And he gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and
feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!"
[al-qur'an 32:9] .
