Qur’ān Says Allah And The Messiah Are God (9:31)?

The single most important doctrine of Islam is that Allah is one, he has no partners and, therefore, our Muslim friends continuously say that Jesus Christ cannot be God. Is this what the Qur’ān teaches let’s examine sūrat l-tawbah (The Repentance). Translations from the likes of Sahih International, Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Muhammad Sarwar, Mohsin Khan, Arberry are the ones most are familiar with among other less known translations like say Maududi.

This translation is from Pickthall, the highlighted portions are of importance for the purposes of this article. In his translation, he deliberately separates the word Allah from Messiah. Insinuating the Jews and Christians have taken their Rabbis, Monks and the Messiah as Lord or God. This is a false understanding of the Trinity.

9:31 sūrat l-tawbah

Taking a closer look you can see that the Arabic text doesn’t read the same. Our Muslim friends tell us the Arabic Qur’ān always takes precedence over the English translation. Ok, we’ll go with them, take note that in the Arabic text there’s a conjunction. The words Allah and the Messiah are spoken of as being Lord or better yet as God, I’ve taken the liberty of pasting اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ into Google Translate which exposes the lies of Islam.

Below I’ve also provided proof from the Muslim website Qur’ān Corpus, thanks again to the Muslims for making it easy for us to expose their lies. The words اللَّهِ وَالْمَسِيحَ form a textual conjunction, notice the “وَ” (wa) also known as “and” means Allah AND the Messiah are God as that’s the subject of the verse.

We can further bust the Abdoools by going to their tafsir[1] for this verse and get the context of what’s being spoken of here. Let’s see what Ibn Abbas the ink of the Qur’ān says about this ayat.

9:31 Tafsir Ibn ‘Abbas

It’s clear from Ibn Abbas that he’s trying to refute the idea that anyone besides Allah can be god, yet the Qur’ān says both Allah AND the Messiah are God according to the Arabic text. Muslims cannot get around this without denying their own book.

To end this article there’s one translation which exposes all the other English translations. Sometimes honestly slips through when Abdoools aren’t aware. The same verse from Sahih International look at how they unknowingly told the truth.

9:31 sūrat l-tawbah

They translated the Arabic text correctly and when they did so it shows how deceptive the other translators were, both Allah and Jesus Christ are spoken of as being Lord according to the Sahih International translation.

Conclusion

What have we learned today? That the English translators of the Qur’ān are deceptive and try to hide the fact that Jesus Christ is God by changing what the text says. The Arabic text reads differently and 9:31 places Allah and the Messiah as god. Lastly, Ibn Abbas the cousin of Muhammad who is called the ink of the Qur’ān argues for God being a solitary one, but he’s against what the text of the Qur’ān says.

Muslims come out of the false religion called Islam, there’s no hope of salvation by following a false prophet. Come to Jesus Christ who is God, eternal life is only found in the Son of God.

[1] Tafsir al-Jalalayn: They have taken their rabbis the scholars among the Jews and their monks the devout among the Christians as lords beside God — following them in making lawful what God has made unlawful and making unlawful what He has made lawful — and the Messiah son of Mary when they were not commanded in the Torah and the Gospel except to worship One God there is no god except Him; glory be to Him as an affirmation of His transcendence high above what they associate with Him.
