Where does Jesus say I am NOT God in the Qur’an?
Muslims often like to ask where did Jesus claim to be God in the Bible, to prove that he isn’t God. Some Christians have decided to ask us, “where does Jesus say he is not God in the Qur’an?,” they are trying use our own argument against us. How can we respond to this?
Unfortunately for the Christian, Jesus in the Qur’an rejects that he ever claimed to be God, therefore asking this question as a counter-argument is not very smart to say the least. In Qur’an 5:116, it is stated:
“And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as gods besides Allah?’” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.”
If a missionary uses this argument, and they’re serious about it, I’d personally find someone smarter to talk to.
and Allah knows best.
