“Muslims love Jesus (peace be upon him) to the point that they want no harm to come upon him, that he does not suffer or is not killed. Yet, Christians love Jesus (peace be upon him) because he needed to die for them, he needed to suffer, he needed to be tortured. This ‘love’ is quite perplexing, the idea of loving someone to the extent you need them to die and that you rejoice at their torture and death is an inscrutable irony.

Of his birth, it was said to his blessed mother Maryam (may God be pleased with her):
He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.” – Qur’an 19:19.
The Qur’an emphasizes his place and role amongst the blessed Messengers of God:
“And [mention, O Muhammad], when We took from the prophets their covenant and from you and from Noah and Abraham and…
