Asslamu Alaikum In the Qur'an 9:30, God condemns the Jews of ascribing Ezra to him as a son. Non-Muslims take this against the Qur'an claiming that none ever of the Jews, not even a single person or a group at any time, made this claim. What is the response of this? "The Jews say: Ezra is the son of God; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of God." JAK




Just wondering how comes we compare the authenticity of Allah’s words to His creatures’ words!? Jews deny the prophethood of Mohamad saaw and claim He is not mentioned in the Tawra while Allah swt Himself mentioned otherwise in the Quran (Those who follow the illiterate Prophet in which they find Him in the Tawra..). Does this mean Mohamad is not a Prophet because Jews decline that?

Our belief is that the contemporary Tawra is a corrupted and intentionally changed one by Jews themselves, that we know about their religion through the Quran and authentic Sunnah of the Prophet saaw more than what they know about their so called “Religion”, and that their statement ( No one of them throughout the history claimed that Ezra is the son of God) is a worthless statement that does not worth even discussing it because Allah swt in the Quran mentioned the opposite.
