Incorrect faith of the Christians

Surah MAAA-‘IDAH (The Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
                                                                               
 لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْمَسِيحُ ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ قُلْ فَمَن يَمْلِكُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ شَيْـًٔا إِنْ أَرَادَ أَن يُهْلِكَ ٱلْمَسِيحَ ٱبْنَ مَرْيَمَوَأُمَّهُۥ وَمَن فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَلِلَّهِ مُلْكُ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ (17

17.  They indeed have disbelieved who say: Lo! Allah is but Messiah, son of Mary. Say: Who then can do aught against Allah, if He had willed to destroy the Messiah son of Mary, and his mother and everyone on earth? Allah’s is the Sovereignty of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He createth what He will. And Allah is Able to do all things.   
17.  Laqad  kafaral-laziina  qaaluuu  ‘innAllaaha  Huwal-Masiihubnu-Maryam.  Qul  famany-yamliku  minAllaahi  shay-‘an  ‘in  ‘araada    ‘any-yuhlikal-Masiihabna-  Maryama  wa  ‘ummahuu  wa  man- fil- ‘arzi  jamii-‘aa.  Wa  LIllaahi  mulkus-samaawaati  wal-‘arzi  wa  maa  baynahumaa.    Yakhluqu  maa  yashaaa’.  WAllaahu  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in- Qadiir.    

    Commentary

Kafara – (disbelieved), it has been made from kufr, which means “not to believe in the correct, to deny that, which has been explained by the wisdom of unselfish people as true”.

False faith of some Christians has been described in this verse and that has been contradicted against the human sense. A sect of the Christians, which is called Ya’-quubia, has the same belief, that Allah has appeared in the world in the form of Prophet Christ (peace be upon Him). Common Christians use to say also such words, clear summary of which discloses the same meaning that the Messiah is the God. For instance; they say that Jesus Christ and God are not separate from each other. And they also say that “Allah (God) is One”. It is known from this description that Christ (peace be upon Him) is the God. Holy Qur’aan tells us in very clear words, “Say: He is Allah, the One! God, the eternally Besought of all! He begetteth not nor was begotten. And there is none comparable unto Him”. (Surah ‘Ikhlaas – Chapter 112). Allah Almighty is Separate from the entire and is Above the entire, and the entire are His creatures. He brings into being, to whom He wishes and discharges from the world, to whom He wills. The entire things and the humankind are in His Divine Power. Nothing is out of His Order.

It has been described that those people who make up such stories, from which it comes out that Messiah. son of Mary (peace be upon Them) is only God, are infidels. They did not understand correctly the Greatness and Dignity of Allah Almighty. Tell them, “Allah Almighty has created the heavens, the earth and their all things, and Messiah and His Mother, Mary (peace be upon Them) are also included into them. If He wishes to ruin and destroy Messiah and His Mother Mary (peace be upon Them), and the entire things of the earth, then there is none (individually or collectively), who has power to save anything or person out of them. To whom He will wish to be produced, that surely will be brought into being, and will be born in such a manner; as He (Allah Almighty) desires. And to whom He wills to destroy, surely that will be ruined. Nobody can save it.
