BismEm



(5:82) Surah Al-Maidah   " الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّا نَصَارَىٰ " 

"those who say, 'We (are) nasara.' " 



Does this word in the Noble Quran refer to the Christian community?

Can anyone give some authentic information on the definition and origin of the word 'nasara' ?   Thanks.

Yes, it refers to the Christians.   In Arabic it's  نَصَارَىٰ   (nasara), plural only.    It comes from the word 'Nazarene' which denotes 'from Nazareth.'   Nazareth, as everyone knows, is located in northern Palestine which was usurped and occupied by the Zionists or Ashkenazi European Jews in 1948.   Thus the expression about Prophet Essa son of Maryam "Jesus from Nazareth."  He may have been from Nazareth but with so many changes and myths included in Christian religious history, it's impossible to confirm which part of Palestine Prophet Essa son of Maryam belonged to.  Only Allah Almighty knows best.  However, we do know that Prophet Essa son of Maryam did belong to the region of Palestine.  Nazarene is supposed to be a term given to early Christians of 1st century.   The gossips of altered Christian history have made the term "nazarene" into a very complicated topic with numerous senseless stories and contradictions as usual which are not important and need to be ignored.

The English translation of 'nasara' is Christians.  But it's not a correct translation from Islamic view point, because the term "Christian" is derived from the word Christ which comes from the Greek word 'christos' meaning "anointed one."  Anointment is an invented Christian ceremony of smearing  or rubbing with oil (or aromatic oil) over a person's head or entire body, typically as part of a religious ceremony.   According to Christian tales, edited and changed dozens to times, the body of Jesus son of Virgin Maryam was "anointed" with spices and oil when he was buried.  Also there's a tale that his feet were anointed by a woman's tears who had been sinful and then she wiped her tears on his feet with her hair ... and all that nonsense. 

The Noble Quran confirms Essa son of Virgin Maryam was not killed on the cross, he ascended to the sky by the will and decision of Allah The Almighty.  The figure on the cross was simply an apparition.  The one buried was obviously the apparition which may explain why his grave was found empty soon after his burial.  After all, apparitions aren't real existences and they vanish after a while.  The stories woven about it by Christians are that it was stolen, some say resurrected.  The truth is, he had already ascended much earlier as confirmed by the Noble Quran.  Moreover, the Quran says nothing about anointment etc.  Those are just rubbish tales and fastasies.

The "tomb" of Prophet Essa son of Virgin Maryam which is supposed to be in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem  is an accepted conjecture or guesswork of his burial site among many other stories.  Essa son of Virgin Maryam does not have any earthly grave because of the simple reason that he never died on earth.

Many thanks dear sis, for this very straightforward and comprehensive summary.   For sure non-Muslim sources have made it mind-boggling complicated and contradictory .. the confusions being endless.

Must share this with my family.     Allah bless.

Indeed very wisely explained and well condensed.  Very useful read.   If you try to go through those non-Muslim sources on this subject, they drive one nuts with intricate details that just don't add up nor make sense.  Even worse than Hadith.

My sister who was reading this thread yesterday also found it very informative.  She added, the idea of "anointed" in Christianity has been borrowed in hadith book numbers 475, 476 and 4.1812 all in Sahih Muslim claiming wudu washes away sins.

Very good observation by your sister.  That false hadith carries the same concept as anointment.

Btw, what is the name of the place Nazareth known in Arabic?

lol, yes ... same concept.

In Arabic, Nazareth is called Al-Nasirah;  and Al-Nasirah is also the name of another small Christian town in north-west Syria.
