What Christians and Muslims should know

The issue of Muslims insulting the Christians by disputing what the New Testament says is not an issue and should not be turned into one. What Islam says about Jesus and Christianity has been well-documented since more than 1,400 years. And this is recorded for posterity in Jerusalem, the birthplace of Jesus, in the Dome of the Rock.

The Dome of the Rock, or Qubbat al-Ṣakhrah, is a shrine in Jerusalem that is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. And below is what is written in the internal and external part of the building. Hence Muslims are merely stating a fact based on the Islamic doctrine, and which cannot be considered an insult but the truth from the Islamic perspective.

Oh God, bless Your Messenger and Your servant Jesus, son of Mary. Peace be on him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the day he shall be raised alive! Such was Jesus, son of Mary, a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt. It befitteth not God that He should take unto Himself a son. Glory be to Him!

There is no god but God. He is One. Praise be to God, Who hath not taken unto Himself a son, and Who hath no partner in the Sovereignty, nor hath He any protecting friend through dependence.
