AL-INJEEL IN THE QURAN CANNOT REFER TO THE NEW TESTAMENT FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:
1. 3/48 : Isa was given THE BOOK, the wisdom, at-tauraat and al-injeel. The book is mentioned in 2/213 as the book given to ALL PROPHETS. Therefore this is the same teachings of God given to all prophets. The Quran is the detailing of this book 10/37.
2. 9/111 : the injeel should contain the promise given by Allah that whoever ‘sells’ his soul and his wealth will attain the garden. The FUNDAMENTAL premise of the New Testament is that one must believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus in order to be saved.
3. 48/29: the injeel has the description of the growth of the islamic system (mathaluhum fil injeel, referring to the followers of MUHAMMAD). The New Testament asserts that the kingdom of Jesus is not of this world.
2 different philosophies, so the New Testament isn’t from Allah.
Muslims believe that Jesus peace be upon him according to the Quran is a wonderful, humble, generous messenger of God who came down and revealed God’s words to his people, the people of Israel. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God, nor they believe that God ever chose to come down to earth in a form of a man to die for our sins to purify us and forgive us.
According to Islam, Jesus never died on the cross, nor ever wanted to die on the cross, nor ever was born to die on the cross. Muslims believe that Jesus was sentenced to death, and people thought that he got executed on the cross. The Quran rejects this idea, and claims that it is a false one. Jesus never died on the cross, nor he ever died for anyone’s sins.
Let us look at what the Quran says
4:156-159 And for their rejection and their saying about Mary a great falsehood. And their saying: “We have killed the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, messenger of God!” And they had not killed him, nor crucified him, but it appeared to them as if they had. And those who dispute are in doubt regarding him, they have no knowledge except to follow conjecture; they did not kill him for a certainty. Instead, God had raised him to Himself; and God is Noble, Wise. And from the people of the Book are those who refused to believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be witness against them.
DID JESUS DIE FOR THE ATONEMENT OF OUR SINS?
The concept of Jesus’ death as the atonement of the sins of mankind is one of the basic beliefs of Christianity, yet Islam does not recognize it to be ordained by God. Islam, on the other hand, very strictly holds that a person shall only be rewarded and punished for his own deeds. No one other than the person himself can get him atoned, forgiven, rewarded or punished.
