Selected verses of the Glorious Quran

Mention of Hazrat Moosa (Moses) and Hazrat Isaa ( Jesus) in the Holy Quran

Leave a comment

Most non-Muslims I have met are under the false impression that we do not believe in Hazat Moosa (Moses) or Hazrat Isa ( Jesus). Muslims infact believe in all Prophets including Moses and Jesus. The only difference between our faith and others is that we believe that Hazrat Muhammad (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) closed the line of Prophets. He was the last Prophet to come to any nation on earth and completed the religion of Moses and Isa.

In Ayah 87 of Chapter 2 of the Holy Quran, Allah tells us that He gave Hazrat Moosa (Moses) the Scriptures and then after him he sent other messengers. Allah then mentions Hazrat Isaa ( Jesus), the son of Mariam ( Mary) and states He gave Hazrat Isa (Jesus) clear signs and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. However, Allah then refers to the Banni Israel clan and asks them whether they will scorn each Apostle, whose message is not as per their convenience, and become arrogant and kill some of these messengers?

Relevant Translation below:

وَلَقَدۡ ءَاتَيۡنَا مُوسَى ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَقَفَّيۡنَا مِنۢ بَعۡدِهِۦ بِٱلرُّسُلِ‌ۖ وَءَاتَيۡنَا عِيسَى ٱبۡنَ مَرۡيَمَ ٱلۡبَيِّنَـٰتِ وَأَيَّدۡنَـٰهُ بِرُوحِ ٱلۡقُدُسِ‌ۗ أَفَكُلَّمَا جَآءَكُمۡ رَسُولُۢ بِمَا لَا تَہۡوَىٰٓ أَنفُسُكُمُ ٱسۡتَكۡبَرۡتُمۡ فَفَرِيقً۬ا كَذَّبۡتُمۡ وَفَرِيقً۬ا تَقۡتُلُونَ (٨٧)

And verily We gave unto Moses the Scripture and We caused a train of messengers to follow after him, and We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs (of Allah’s sovereignty), and We supported him with the Holy spirit. Is it ever so, that, when there cometh unto you a messenger (from Allah) with that which ye yourselves desire not, ye grow arrogant and some ye disbelieve and some ye slay? (87)
