The Core of the Matter....: Yusuf Estes

Say: He is Allah,the One!
Allah, the eternally Besought of all!
He begetteth not nor was He begotten.
And there is none comparable to Him.
[Surah Al-Ikhlas, 112:1-4]

And they say: The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son.
Assuredly ye utter a disastrous thing.
Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder
and the mountains fall in ruins.
That ye ascribe unto the Beneficient a son!
When it is not meet for the Majesty of the Beneficent that
He should choose a son.
There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave [Surah Maryam, 19:88-93]

O people of the Scriptures!
Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth.
The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary and a spirit from Him.
So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not "Three--Cease!".
It is better for you!
Allah is only one God. Far it is removed from His transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the Heaven and all that is in the earth.
And Allah is sufficient as Defender.
[Surah An Nisa, 4:171]

And Lo! This religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty to Me.
But they[mankind]have broken their religion into sects, each sect rejoicing in its tenets. So leave them in their error till a time.
[Surah Al Mukminun, 23:52-54]

" Who doth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah, or denieth the truth when it cometh unto him?
Is not then a place in hell for disbelievers?
As for those who strive in Us, We surely guide them to Our path,
And Lo! Allah is with the good."
Surah Al-Ankaboot,The Spider,29:68-69]

"And of His signs is this:
The Heavens and the earth stand fast by His command, and afterward, when He calleth you, lo! from the earth you will emerge."
[ The Romans, 30:25]

"And if We send a wind and they behold it yellow, they verily would continue in their disbelief.

For verily thou Muhammad canst not make the dead to hear, nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call when they have turned to flee.
Nor canst thou guide the blind out of their error.

Thou canst make none to hear save those who believe in Our revelations so that they surrender."

{The Romans, 30: 51-53]
