God’s Metaphoric Incarnation in His Creations

Scholars have analyzed these passages and proved the Christians’ misunderstanding of them. The Christians’ understanding of the verses that contain Allah’s (S.W) incarnation in Jesus (PBUH) - as they understand - is wrong. It is an indisputable fact that Allah’s (S.W) incarnation in his creations is a metaphorical incarnation, and it is the same for Jesus (PBUH).

Allah (S.W), according to the Holy Bible, incarnates in many, which means the divine gifts (or attributes) are incarnated and not Allah (S.W) himself. In the First Epistle of John we read, Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelled in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelled in love dwelled in God and God in him.” (John (1) 4:15-16). Therefore, Allah’s (S.W) incarnation or dwelling in those who believe in Jesus (PBUH), is not a true self-incarnation, otherwise, they will all be Gods.


In addition, Allah (S.W) incarnates or dwells in anyone who keeps the commandments, but that does not mean that that person becomes God. And he that kept his commandments dwelled in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abided in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” (John (1) 3:24). The meaning here is that Allah’s (S.W) guidance and support are with and upon them.


sake, and this, we find in the same Epistle.“No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit.”(John (1) 4:12-13).  The same is in the Gospel according to John. I in them and you in me” (John 17:23)


These verses denote and imply divine incarnation in all believers; it is, without doubt, a metaphorical incarnation, therefore, it is the same for Jesus (PBUH), and if some one wishes to claim otherwise, he or she should present the evidence.


Furthermore, the Torah mentions a real incarnation of Allah (S.W) in his creations, but Christians do not consider them gods.


In Exodus we read, In the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in.”(Exodus 15:17) and in Psalms, Why leap ye, ye high hills? This is the hill which God desires to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.” (Psalms 68:16), and no one worships that mountain.


There are two important claimed incarnation passages, which are, (John 10:30), and (John 14:9),do these two verses proveJesus’ (PBUH) divinity?
