The Christians also asked this question that if Jesus is the word of Allah and Allah says this in the Quran then why are we being condemned for worshiping the word of god which is eternal, which is Jesus.. So, you guys also believe in the Quran which is the word of god?
They have to understand what is the aqidah /creed of the Muslim. and one of the important things; people get confused is that the attribute of allah Azzawajal and the difference between the essence and attributes of Allah Azzawajal, and the action attributes of Allah Azzawajal.
They do not distinguish or do not differentiate is the fact, that the Quran is is an expression of Allah. Yes, but the Quran is not something which has his own mind or it has its own will, for example, both of which was true in the case of Jesus Christ.
So, we need to distinguish this. The Christians normally ask this question. Why do you condemn us for worshiping and saying that we are committing shirk, when you guys are doing the same thing with the Quran?
A very clear distinction between who Allah is, what His Essence are, which essence of His are Eternal and which essence of His, He will it to happen or manifest those Essence in time as temporal, like when Allah wishes for His Mercy to descend on Earth or on a particular person, Yes, He wills it and this happens in time obviously.
So, we need to clearly distinguish between what is it Eternal in terms of essences and what is temporal in terms of his manifestation of those Essence.
So, anyone who says that the the word of Allah, which is the Quran is Allah in the sense that the Christians they believe that the word of God is God in the sense of Jesus Christ.
So, they are making a false equivalence and incorrect or illogical comparisons. So let’s distinguish between the essence and the attribute; is very very important, the actions as well.
The manifestation of that essence in time, which is action attributes that also we should distinguish.
