The Way Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was Born – The Signs of Qiyaamah – Part Thirteen

The Way Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was Born

The divine system of Allah Ta‘ala, in regard to the creation of the human species, is that when two factors are found, the human being comes into existence. The first factor is the medium of parents through which the human seed is planted in the womb of the mother. The second factor is the soul being blown into the foetus after it completes four months of development.

Every person who came in the world conformed to this system. However, Allah Ta‘ala had made three personalities an exception to this rule viz. Nabi Aadam, Hazrat Hawwaa, and Nabi Isa (‘alaihimus salaam).

In regard to Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam), Allah Ta‘ala moulded his form from sand and then blew the rooh into him. Hence, he was born without the medium of parents.

As for Hazrat Hawwaa (‘alaihas salaam), Allah Ta‘ala created her from the left rib of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam). Hence, she was born through the medium of only a man.

As for Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam), then Allah Ta‘ala created him by causing the soul to be blown into the womb of his mother. Hence, he was born through the medium of only a woman.

In the Qur’aan Majeed, Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) has been resembled to Hazrat Aadam (‘alaihis salaam). Allah Ta‘ala says:

اِنَّ مَثَلَ عِیۡسٰی عِنۡدَ اللّٰہِ کَمَثَلِ اٰدَمَ ؕ خَلَقَہٗ مِنۡ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَہٗ  کُنۡ فَیَکُوۡنُ ﴿۵۹﴾

Indeed, the example of Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) by Allah is similar to the example of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam). Allah Ta‘ala created him (Nabi Aadam [‘alaihis salaam]) from sand, then said to it (the mold from sand), “Be!” and he came into being.” (Surah Aal-e-Imraan v. 59)

In this aayat, Allah Ta‘ala explains that Nabi Isa’s (‘alaihis salaam) creation resembled Nabi Aadam’s (‘alaihis salaam) creation in the sense that Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) was not born through the medium of parents, but was created by the rooh being blown into him.

Similarly, Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was not born through the medium of a father, as the rooh was blown into his mother’s womb, causing him to come into existence.

Hence, we find that just as the creation of Nabi Aadam (‘alaihis salaam) and Hazrat Hawwaa (‘alaihas salaam) took place in a miraculous manner, similarly the creation of Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) was also miraculous and unique.

The Miracles of Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam)

Allah Ta‘ala blessed Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) with the ability to perform many miracles. Every miracle that he performed was done with the permission of Allah Ta‘ala, and through Allah Ta‘ala enabling and empowering him to carry it out.

Among the miracles which he performed, as mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed, are that he would cure the lepers and those who were born blind. He would fashion moulds of birds out of clay and thereafter blow into these moulds, and Allah Ta‘ala would bring them to life.

Allah Ta‘ala Raising Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam) to the Heavens

Regarding Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam), the Christians believe that he was crucified on the cross and was killed by the Jews. However, this belief is false and has been clearly rejected in the Qur’aan Majeed.

The belief of Islam is that the Jews did not succeed in killing him, but Allah Ta‘ala saved him from their harm and miraculously raised him to the heavens. Allah Ta‘ala clearly explains this in the Qur’aan Majeed. Allah Ta‘ala says, “And they (the Jews) did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but the matter was confused for them. Those who disputed in this matter are certainly in doubt about it.  They have no knowledge of it, but they follow conjecture (and assumptions). It is absolutely certain that they did not kill him, but Allah raised him towards Himself. Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (Surah Nisaa v. 157-158)

From the above, we have seen that Nabi Isa’s (‘alaihis salaam) life is a clear reflection of the divine Qudrat (power) of Allah Ta‘ala. From the unique way he was born and the miracles he performed to the miraculous manner in which Allah Ta‘ala raised him to the heavens – all manifest the power of Allah Ta‘ala.

When Dajjaal will come in the world, he will be creating colossal fitnah and widespread mischief in the earth. His fitnah, as mentioned in the Hadith, will be the greatest fitnah the world will ever witness from the beginning of time. At that crucial time, it will be this great Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala – Nabi Isa (‘alaihis salaam), who is a manifestation of the Qudrat of Allah Ta‘ala, who will be divinely sent to the world by Allah Ta‘ala to save the ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) by killing Dajjaal, thus bringing an end to his mischief.
