اِنَّ مَثَلَ عِيْسٰى عِنْدَ اللہِ كَمَثَلِ اٰدَمَ۝۰ۭ خَلَقَہٗ مِنْ تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَہٗ كُنْ فَيَكُوْنُ۝۵۹
Inna mathala AAeesa AAinda Allahi kamathali adama khalaqahu min turabin thumma qala lahu kun fayakoonu


Ahmed Ali

For God the likeness of Jesus is as that of Adam whom He fashioned out of dust and said "Be" and he was.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : allah then explained the creation of jesus without a father because the delegation of najran asked the prophet to provide proof from the qur'an for his saying that jesus was not the son of allah, so allah said: (lo! the likeness of jesus) the likeness of the creation of jesus (with allah) without a father (is as the likeness of adam. he created him of dust) without a father or mother, (then he said unto him) to jesus: (be! and he is) a son without a father.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : truly, the likeness of jesus, his remarkable case, in god’s sight, is as adam’s likeness, as the case of adam, whom god created without father or mother: this is a comparison of one remarkable thing with another more remarkable, so that it convinces the disputer and establishes itself in one’s mind more effectively. he created him, adam, that is, his form, of dust, then said he to him, ‘be,’, a human being, and he was; similarly, he said to jesus, ‘be’ — without a father — and he was.

Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi

تفسير : (lo! the likeness of jesus with allah is as the likeness of adam…) [3:59]. the commentators of the qur'an said: “the delegation of najran said to the messenger of allah, allah bless him and give him peace: 'why do you insult jesus?' he said: 'what did i say about him?' they said: 'you say that he is a servant'. he said: 'indeed, he is the servant and messenger of allah, as well as his word which he cast into the virgin mary'. they became angry and said: 'have you ever seen a human being who was born without a father? if you are truthful, show us such a person'. and so allah, exalted is he, revealed this verse”. abu bakr ahmad ibn muhammad al-harithi informed us> 'abd allah ibn muhammad ibn ja'far> sahl abu yahya al-razi> sahl ibn 'uthman> yahya> waki'> mubarak> al-hasan who said: “two monks from najran came to see the prophet, allah bless him and give him peace, and he invited them to surrender to allah. one of them said: 'we have surrendered to allah before you'. he said: 'you lie! three things prevent you from surrendering to allah: your worship of the cross, eating pork and your claim that allah has a son'. they said: 'then who is the father of jesus?' the prophet, allah bless him and give him peace, was not in the habit of giving hasty answers but waited for allah's answer instead. then allah, exalted is he, revealed this verse (lo! the likeness of jesus with allah is as the likeness of adam…)”.
