Please watch for more of our blog posts where you can read some of the beautiful words of Jesus.
The Qur’an says to read the books that came before. This would include the words of Jesus in the Injil.
The Qur’an does not reject reading the Bible. Instead, it gives many positive references concerning the Bible and the importance for Muslims to read it:
“Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light” (Sura 5:44).
“And We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow in their footsteps, confirming that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah – a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil)” (Sura 5:46).
“It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong)” (Sura 3:3).
“And be not thou of those who deny the revelations of Allah, for then wert thou of the losers” (Sura 10:95).
