The Prophet of Purity


 السلام عليكم‎‎

As-salāmu ʿalaykum


Isa ibn Maryam…

The Prophet

of Purity

Allah. We may not understand all the details of how Isa

al-Masih can purify us, we just need to trust that Allah

knows best. In the Honoured Qur’an we are told that

Allah gave Jesus the power and authority to raise the

dead, cleanse the lepers, give sight to the blind, and

even breathe life into a clay bird – Surah al-Imran 3:49.

Just as Isa cleansed the leper, he too can wipe us clean

of all that defiles us.


Allah is the master teacher! He shows us spiritual

truths through illustrations we see in the natural world.

Indeed, the Qur’an tells us “ Truly in the heavens and

the earth are signs for those who believe.”- Surah Al-

Jathiyah 45:3. Trees, including the date palm, are

essential for our survival here on earth. Through a

process called photosynthesis, harmful carbon dioxide

which is bad for us is absorbed by the tree, feeding and

nourishing it. In exchange, the tree ‘breathes out’ and

creates life giving oxygen for us! It is a divine exchange.

A miracle of nature, and a beautiful plan formulated by

our master Creator – all praise to Him! Allahu Akbar! In

the same way, if we confess our sins and rebelliousness

to Allah, and turn away from our wrong-doing by handing

it over to Isa al-Masih, he will take all that is harmful

upon himself and in exchange ‘breathe life’ into us – a

cleansed life – an empowered life.

Remember in Surah al-Imran 3:49 how Isa breathes

life into a clay bird and brings it to life? In the same way

Isa breathes life into us, not only cleansing our hearts,

but causing us to live a new life of obedience to Allah.

We read about this cleansing and new life in Taurat

Ezekiel 36:26 “ A new heart also I will give you, and a

new spirit I put within you, and I [Allah] will take away

the stony [ hard and corrupted ] heart out of your flesh,

and I will give you a new heart.”

In Surah Maryam 19:19 we read that Maryam the

mother of Jesus (may his peace and purity be upon us)

is granted “a pure son.” That pure son is Jesus himself,

Isa-al-Masih. And His purity can be yours too!


Just as a Palm tree absorbs harmful carbon dioxide,

and breathes out life giving oxygen in exchange, will you

surrender your sin and shame right now and receive the

righteousness from Isa – the life new life given by Isa ibn

Maryam, the Prophet of purification? The Masih waits

for you. Ma-sa-ha, ‘to clean’, ‘to clear’, ‘to wipe away’

your sins and iniquities. Will you let him?

May this humble Dua be yours: “ Almighty Allah, I

submit to you. I turn away from all that is wrong. I

recognize that I have broken your commandments and

rebelled against your righteous ways. I give it all over to

you, and ask for the righteousness that comes from Isa

ibn Maryam, the Prophet of purification. May you send

him into my life, to cleanse me, to perform Wudu on my

heart, and to empower me to live a life that is pleasing

to you. Ameen.”
