Angel Jibril is Allah in Islam

If you ask a Muslim who is the Holy Spirit (Ruh al-Qudus), they would reply emphatically angel Jibril.1 They claim that the words “Our Spirit” found in Surah Al-Anbya 21:91 in reference to Isa being created in Mary’s womb means Jibril. That’s fine we’ll go with this Muslim belief.

Jibril Created Adam?

Muslims say Allah created Adam, they enjoy bringing this up when we ask about Allah creating Isa (Jesus), they claim both were created exactly the same. This is not true as Adam was created by clay while Isa was not! In Surah Sad 38:72 Allah says:

Sad 38:72

Notice Allah breathed into him (Adam) of “My spirit” if Muslims want to interpret “spirit” as in this is Jibril does this mean angel Jibril created Adam also? Going to the Tafsir to see what their scholars say about this ayat is paramount.

Tafsir Sad 38:72

Ibn Abbas says Allah placed in Adam “My spirit” is Jibril inside of Adam,2 I thought Muslims said he’s an angel? By saying the spirit is Jibril they are making him more than an angel, according to this ayat Jibril entered Adam and gave him life. I guess Allah was right when he said there’s more than one creator [23:14]. Allah is not the only one that can give life, Muslims are also attributing the creation of Adam to Jibril.

Let’s examine another scholar’s interpretation, Ibn Kathir. He confirms this is about the creation of Adam when Allah told the angels he would create a human. Allah commands the angels to prostrate to Adam thereby committing shirk,3 you can read a past article on this topic (Mushrik Allah the First One to Commit Shirk)

Jibril Created Isa?

Surah Al-Anbya 21:91

The story here is of Allah creating Isa, the issue is Muslims need to make up their mind was it Allah who breathed into Mary’s vagina (فَرْجَهَا, farjaha) yes you read correctly, the Arabic word provided placed in Google Translate will translate “her vagina.” Provided is screenshot of the Arabic translation, try it for yourself copy the highlighted Arabic text on quran.com (a site made by Muslims not Christians).

Note the deceptive translation of “guarded her chastity” these words don’t appear in the Arabic text as you can see from Google Translate (pbuh). So Allah blew into Mary’s vagina according to the Qur’ān and thereby created Isa (“Jesus”). Hold on but Muslims say the holy spirit is Jibril who in this verse is the “spirit” blown into Mary?

Some questions Muslims need to answer (1) was it Allah who blew into Mary or Jibril? (2) If the spirit is blown into Mary is Jibril inside of her [38:72]? (3) Who did the actual creating of Isa was it Allah or Jibril? (4) If it’s Allah who did the creating then who is “our spirit” in this verse? (5) If Jibril did the creating this would mean he has the same abilities as Allah and therefore if Allah gave him this power that would make Jibril god in Islam.

Allah Accuses the Angels to be Untruthful?

Lastly, in Surah Al-Baqarah there’s the account of Allah telling the angels he’s going to make Adam (mankind). The angels responded, “are you going to make someone who will cause mischief and bloodshed.” This statement is important as we’ll see later proves Allah cannot be god.

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:30-31

Allah accuses the angels saying “Tell Me the names of these if you are truthful” here we have the god of Islam accusing the angels of not being truthful. The angels said Adam will cause bloodshed and mischief. The angels were right because Adam (mankind) did sin, even the Qur’ān tells us this as Adam was kicked out of Jannah for what he has done. Let us not forget Allah decreed (caused) Adam to sin, you can read about it in this past article Allah Causes People to Commit Adultery?

Therefore, the angels knew more than Allah because he accused the angels of not being truthful. Yet the angels were correct and knew something Allah didn’t know, even though Allah decreed for Adam to sin, but he busted himself as Allah couldn’t remember what he decreed.

Surah Al-Baqarah 2:35-36

The ayat [2:35] says Adam and his wife were in Paradise, this of course is taken from Genesis in the Bible. You can read the actual story from the Bible also known as Genesis 3 The Fall of Man. In the Qur’ān Shaitan causes them to be kicked out of Paradise and Allah tells them “Get you down” and they are banished from Paradise.

Here’s another contradiction Iblis (Satan) was kicked out of Paradise before Adam and his wife (Eve), how is it Satan is now in Paradise again causing them to sin? Even though the Qur’ān is a jumbled mess of stories we’re told in Qur’ān 38:71—78 that Allah said he was going to create man from clay. Then the angels prostrated themselves before Adam (by the command of Allah) committing shirk, except Iblis (Satan).

Allah asked him “What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands” and Satan responds “I am better than he. You created me from fire, and You created him from clay” Allah then says “Then get out from here; for verily you are outcast And verily My Curse is on you till the Day of Recompense” he (Satan) was kicked out of Jannah.

Here is the contradiction how can Satan cause Adam to sin while Adam was in Paradise when Satan was already kicked out of Paradise? Remember Allah has created stars to shoot at the Jinn who are trying to get close and hear what’s happening in heaven.

Sunan Ibn Majah 194

How then can Satan who is a Jinn come back to heaven in order to cause Adam to sin? This is a contradiction because this means Allah was not capable of keeping Satan out of heaven with his shooting stars. It’s sad that there are people who can believe this rubbish.

Conclusion

In this article, we presented the fact that Jibril has been given the ability to create according to Muslims, which means there’s more than 1 god in Islam. Even the Qur’ān says Allah is the Best of the creators [23:14] meaning there’s more than 1 creator according to Qur’ān. This is further proof Islam is not a monotheistic religion as Muslims tell us.

Christians only believe in 1 God [Deuteronomy 6:4] we have a future article coming out that will speak about this Lord willing. As we reach out to Muslims in love calling them to come to the Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ who created all things [John 1:1-3, Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:10]. We ask the Muslims to bring their arguments and let us reason together, that you may come to know the Lord Jesus and be saved. God bless.
