Islam deems it compulsory upon its followers to believe in the previous divine
Messages and in all the Prophets and Messengers. Muslims must love them
all, and respect them.
And that was Our [conclusive] argument which We gave Abraham against his
people. We raise by degrees whom We will. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing.
And We gave to [Abraham] Isaac and Jacob - all of them We guided. And
Noah, We guided before; and among his descendants, David and Solomon and
Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the doers of good.
And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elias - and all were of the righteous. And
Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot - and all of them We preferred over the
rest of mankind. And some among their fathers and their descendants and their
brothers - and We chose them and We guided them to a Straight Path.
What the Qur’an says about Jesus and
his Mother, Mary, may Allah praise them.
And [mention] when the angels said, ‘O Mary, indeed Allah
has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the
women of the worlds.’
To Allah, the case of Jesus is as that of Adam whom He
created from the earth and then said, ‘Exist,’ and Adam
came into existence.
O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion
or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus,
the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word
which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command]
from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not
say, ‘Three’; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is only
one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs
whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And
sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.
