4 Things The Holy Quran Said About Prophet Isa

Like all prophets in Islam, Isa is also called a Muslim, as he preached that his followers should adopt the "straight path". Below are four things the holy Quran said about prophet Isa:

1. Son Of Maryam

Like Prophet Adam, Isa had no father. Moreover, his mother’s high standing with God is well-known - she has an entire chapter named after her in the Qur’an and she was visited and addressed by Angel Jibril.

2. The holy Quran describes prophet Isa as the messiah, born of a virgin, performing miracles, accompanied by disciples, rejected by the Jewish establishment, and being raised to heaven.

3. He was sent to guide the Children of Israel

Unlike previous prophets, Isa did not refer to the Israelites as ‘my people’ - because he was born without a father and therefore, technically, they were not his ‘people’. His specifying ‘Children of Israel’ also indicates that he came to guide the Israelites.

4. Speaking from the cradle

Speaking from the cradle is mentioned in three places in the Quran: al-Imran (3) 41, 46, al-Maida (5) 109–110 and Maryam (19) 29–30. Part of the narrative has the infant Isa defending his mother Maryam from the accusation of having given birth without a known husband.
