18) Respected In This World And The Next (وجيه في الدنيا و الآخرة)
Why is the Son of Mary an influential person in history, not only among the living, during his earthly life, but also forever?
Allah prepared for him a unique birth, which no other man experienced. Jesus was a real man and at the same time the true Spirit of Allah.
The Son of Mary never sinned and none could prove any fault in him. He appeared before the international Roman court and was proved innocent.
He was the only one who could reconcile the world with Allah through his atonement, because he remained without sin.
After his death, the Son of Mary ascended to Allah. Now he is our Advocate before the Holy One. (1 John 2:1, 2)
No man has ever lived a perfect life as he has. He was the Spirit of God in flesh, lived a sinless life and gave his body as a perfect sacrifice for many. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
