Muslims love Isa (Jesus) and his Mother

Muslims love Isa (Jesus) and his Mother

Isa was explicitly mentioned in the Holy Qur’an on sixteen different occasions. On one occasion, Allah the Exalted said: [The Day] when Allah will say, ‘O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity. And [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel. And when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission. And you healed the blind and the leper with My permission, and when you brought forth the dead with My permission. And when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs, and those who disbelieved among them said, ‘This is not but obvious magic.’ (5:110)


On the other hand, the Prophet Muhammad was only explicitly mentioned in the Holy Qur’an four times, whereas the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, was mentioned eight times and has a complete Sura (chapter) named after her


On one occasion Allah the All Mighty said: [And mention] when the angels said, ‘O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah].’ (3:45)


As a family, they have been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an three times and they have been privileged by having a complete Sura (chapter) named after them (Aali Imran) which is imprinted in the hearts and minds of the believers forever
