20. For Readers of the Qur'an
The Names and Titles of Christ as Declared to Mary

5. He is One of Those Brought Near to Allah

The Almighty raised the Son of Mary to Himself because of His kindness, mercy, patience and atonement for many. The Qur'an testifies twice to the fact that Christ is alive and that He lives with Allah! (Suras Al 'Imran 3:55 and al-Nisa' 4:158). Death could not find power over Him, because He lived without a sin and overcame the enemy of life. The Son of Mary bears eternal life in Himself and offers His Spirit to whoever trusts Him.

According to the Qur'an, Allah speaks to Christ personally and He answers Him immediately (Sura al-Ma'ida 5:110-118). The Son of Mary is the sole Intercessor, the Mediator and the atoning Redeemer to His followers before Allah. He will never die. He lives forever, for He is the Word of Allah and the Spirit. He went back to His place of origin. Christ draws His faithful followers after Him and changes their pride into humility and their selfishness into service for the needy. He will bring them near to Allah. Are you with Him or against Him?
