Jesus being at GOD Almighty's "Right Hand" is only SYMBOLIC and not literal in the Bible:
Many Christians try to prove trinity through the claim that Jesus, peace be upon him, is sitting at GOD Almighty's "Right Hand". This however is a figurative/symbolic speech that can not be taken literally, because the Bible used the "Right Hand" term several times in a symbolic speech.
The following post was my response to my Christian friend Mr. James, may Allah Almighty continue to Bless him and to further Lead him and his family to Islam. Ameen.
Note: I have added colors for easy read, and some text that I did not mention in the original post.
Peace be upon you Mr. James,
The Noble Verse that you're looking for is the following:
"Nay, God raised him (Jesus) up unto Himself; and God is Exalted in Power, Wise;- (The Noble Quran, 4:158)"
"raised him up to Himself" says in Arabic "Bal rafaahu Allah ilaih", which literally means "Allah raised him (Jesus) to Himself".
"ilaih" in Arabic could also mean to "His direction" or "his Path" or "his Way". When one says "I turn my face ila Allah", it literally means "I turn my face to GOD". But that does not mean that you necessarily have seen GOD Almighty or came near to Him.
In Islam, we're taught that no one have seen GOD Almighty or knows how He Looks like. That is why Allah Almighty appeared to Moses peace be upon him behind the mountain covered with clouds. Even Jesus peace be upon him in the Bible teaches that:
"No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known. (John 1:18)"
So the speech in Noble Verse 4:158 is figurative and not literal. The same in some verses in the Bible such as:
"Your right hand, O LORD, was majestic in power. Your right hand, O LORD, shattered the enemy. (Exodus 15:6)"
"I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8)"
"You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. (Psalm 18:35)"
"Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. (Psalm 20:6)"
"Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. (Psalm 17:7)"
So as you can see Mr. James, the "Right Hand" speech is only figurative/symbolic and not literal.
I hope this answers your question.
Back to Answering Trinity.
Does the Noble Quran in Verse 19:33 confirm Jesus' crucifixion?
Jesus Said He Was God?
Do People and Angels bowing down to Jesus in Worship really prove that he is the Creator of the Universe? See how the word "Worship" used for Jesus doesn't even exist in the original Greek Bibles. The Trinitarian English translations are nothing but hoaxes and deceptions. The article responds to Matthew 15:9 and other English mistranslated verses in the Bible.
Answering John 1:1.
Hebrews 5:7-8 confirm Islam's claim about Jesus never got crucified and contradicts the Bible! According to the documentary film, "Banned from the Bible", which I watched on the History Channel, some of Saint Peter's apocalypse were banned from the current Bible, and these Epistles contain what Islam claims - that Jesus didn't get crucified on the cross and it only appeared that he was. This banned part also says that Jesus was standing next to the cross laughing. These are the parts of the Bible that only few people in the world know about.
According to the documentary film, the apocalypse was very popular among
Christians during the 2nd century. They believed "it was spiritually
inspired" by GOD Almighty to Saint Peter. They actually had doubts
about "John's apocalypse", which is known today as "the Book of
Revelation". Interestingly also, this apocalypse says that after GOD
Almighty fills both Heaven and Hell with inhabitants from Mankind, and the people of Hell
get tortured for a long period of time, the People of Heaven will ask and Pray to GOD
Almighty to Forgive the people of Hell. GOD Almighty will then eventually listen to
their Prayers, and will order the "Gates and the Steel Bars of Hell"
to be opened and allow the people of Hell to enter Heaven for Good. This apocalypse of
Peter seems to also perfectly fit Noble Verse 7:40 in the
Noble Quran where Allah Almighty Promised that He will eventually open the Gates of Heaven
to all disbelievers and empty Hell. Please visit: Hell will eventually be empty according to Islam.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about
the crucifixion of Jesus?
It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10. I also showed in Isaiah 52:13 "...he will be raised and lifted up....", which clearly and perfectly agrees with Islam about Jesus never died on the cross. "Raised and lifted" suggests that Jesus will be picked up right from the cross, or saved right from the cross by Allah Almighty. It suggests that Jesus will not die, nor get crucified, but rather be raised and lifted by GOD Almighty to Heavens.
None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
Jesus was never "disfigured beyond human recognition" in the New Testament as the Old Testament predicted!
Did Jews continually try to stone Jesus prove that he claimed to be GOD?
Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Does that make him GOD?
Did Jesus ever claim to be "Mighty God" or "God"? Responding to the "I and the Father are one. (John 10:30)" claim.
