The Qur’an Only and Uzair

“The Jews say, “Uzair is the son of Allah,” while the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the son of Allah.” Such are their baseless assertions, only parroting the words of earlier disbelievers. May Allah condemn them! How can they be deluded ‘from the truth’?’ (Qur’an 9:30)

Imagine for a moment that you are a follower of the Qur’an only religion.  Your understanding of the Qur’an as a follower of this religion is that:

  1. It is the only source of guidance, not the primary source.
  2. That it is highly detailed, and your understanding is that it and it alone contains absolutely everything you need.

Have you ever seen a meaningful discussion between a follower of the Qur’an only religion and a follower of Judaism on the question of Uzair being the son of Allah where the Quranist uses the Qur’an alone?

Let’s look at what the Qur’an does tell us.

  1. It mentions an individual named Uzair (mentioned once in the entire Qur’an) whom the Jews would call the son of Allah.

Now let us look at the situation with the Christians. This is an easier claim to engage with. The Christians will openly admit they believe that Jesus is the Messiah and that he is the son of God.  Even if they are Unitarians or Jehovah’s Witness. I have yet to come across any Christian who does not make this baseline claim about Christ Jesus. Secondly we can look to their sacred text and see these claims being made about Jesus there.
