Ahmed Ali

The Christ, son of Mary, was but an apostle, and many apostles had (come and) gone before him; and his mother was a woman of truth. They both ate the (same) food (as men). Behold, how We show men clear signs, and behold, how they wander astray!



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (the messiah, son of mary, was no other than a messenger) sent to people, (messengers (the like of whom) had passed away before him. and his mother was a saintly woman. and they both used to eat (earthly) food) they were both servants who used to eat food. (see) o muhammad (how we make the revelations) the signs that jesus and his mother were not gods (clear for them, and see) o muhammad (how they are turned away) through lies!

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : the messiah, son of mary, was only a messenger; messengers passed away before him, and so he passed away like them, for he is not a god as they claim, otherwise he would not have passed away; his mother was a truthful woman, [siddīqa means] extremely truthful; they both used to eat food, like all other human beings, and one who is such cannot be a god because of his compound being and fallible nature, and because of the [impurities such as] urine and excrement that he produces. behold, in amazement, how we make the signs, of our oneness, clear to them, then behold, how they are turned away!, [how] they are turned away from the truth despite the proof being established.
