Shaykh Gibril, what does the Quran mean when it calls Jesus “kalimat Allah“? Of course, we cannot interpret this in the sense of “word made flesh” like a walking word. So what does this mean?
Nowhere does the Qur’an call `Isa (upon him peace) “kalimat Allah.” Rather, the Qur’an calls him “kalimatin min Allah” twice in Surat Al `Imran, meaning “a word from Allah.” It means (i) a proof of the power of Allah to create a human being without a father, make him speak from the cradle, and revive the dead at his hands, and also (ii) the word كن “Be” by which He created `Isa without the customary intermediary of a father, just as Adam and Eve were created without a father and mother.
