Lesson
       
God Almighty described the entire realities about Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) to the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and commanded: If the Christians quarrel even now with You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) regarding Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) then should not take any care for them. As the denier of the sunlight is called a blind likewise; the denier of the realities is a wretched and unfortunate”.

The people of the Scripture used to quarrel with the Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in the matter that Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was not servant of Allah Almighty but was His son. They used to say: If he (peace be upon him) is not son of God Almighty then you (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should tell us, whose son He (peace be upon him) is”? In response to their question; Allah Almighty said: Prophet Adam (peace be upon Him) did have neither father and nor mother. Therefore, if Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) had not father then what is there to be wonder? Having not father by anyone, does not mean that he is son of God. Otherwise, like this, the degree of Prophet Adam (peace be upon Him) should be higher than Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and he (peace be upon him) would have more right to be called as son of God.
 
It is the reality that God Almighty created Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) from clay as well He created Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) from the same. Likeness of both of them is the same (peace be upon them). Neither Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) was son of God and nor Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). After that, God Almighty commanded His last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Whatever We described about “Messiah” (peace be upon him), that entire is quite right. There is no scope of doubt in it. You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should never be from the people who are doubtful.

By exemplifying Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) with Prophet Adam (peace be upon him), God Almighty has proved such clear evidence that there is no choice of argument remained further in this matter. The Father of entire human beings; who (Adam; peace be upon Him) was born in heaven without mother and father, if he (peace be upon Him) is neither God and nor son of God, then how can that one (peace be upon him) be son of God, who is born from the womb of a mother in this world?
