Does GOD Have A Son – Mufti Menk

there are people whom allah says have started calling this young boy. the son of god. why was this, this was because they didn’t see. the father, to them there was no father. so when they were told this is the this is a miracle from allah, they said. well that is the son of allah, and they started saying this is the son of allah.
so allah (SWT) says

مَا كَانَ لِلَّهِ أَن يَتَّخِذَ مِن وَلَدٍ
It is not for Allah to take a son!
Surah Maryam (35)

Nay! it is not befitting for the creator to take a son, to have a begotten son. it is blasphemed to relate to the creator. who only needs to say be, and anything he wants to make is created automatically.

it is blasphemous to relate to him, to say he has a begotten son.
may allah safeguard us from such blasphemy, Na aaudhu billah.

so in islam, we believe, to say that the god almighty has a son is blasphemous.
the quran speaks about how sick that blasphemy is!
and the quran says:

أَن دَعَوْا لِلرَّحْمَنِ وَلَدًا
That they should invoke a son for ((Allah)) Most Gracious.
Surah Maryam (verse-91)

Allahu Akbar!

وَمَا يَنبَغِي لِلرَّحْمَنِ أَن يَتَّخِذَ وَلَدًا
For it is not consonant with the majesty of ((Allah)) Most Gracious that He should beget a son.
Surah Maryam (verse-92)

how can they say that allah the most merciful has a son.
and it is not befitting for the most merciful to have a son, allah says

تَكَادُ السَّمَاوَاتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَتَنشَقُّ الْأَرْضُ وَتَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدًّا
At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin,
Surah Maryam (verse-90)

This statement is so blasphemous that the skies want to tear apart, and the earth wants to explode, and the mountains want to fall prostrate to allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.
Because of the severity and seriousness of such a dangerous statement against the maker himself.
so even the creation of allah, are bearing witness that allah has not taken a son.

and they are agitated at the fact that people are saying this, yes he did not have a father but adam neither had a father nor a mother, and eve neither had meaning eve did not have a mother, meaning we cannot even call adam the father.

She was also created miraculously, and when it comes to jesus (may peace be upon him), he did not have a father, that’s what the quran says, but you cannot say the son of allah and the begotten. the word beget is so blasphemous. if you have to check the meaning of it in the oxford dictionary, you’d probably hide your face.
may allah protect us.

How can we say that for the maker of the universe.
He doesn’t need that he is powerful we believe the maker only needs to say be and it is

may allah subhanahu wa ta’ala grant us goodness.
