Chapter Seven

Al-Injeel (The Gospels)

The Injeel (The Gospels), are mentioned in the Quran upon twelve different occasions and verses. Three times in the third chapter, A’li-Imran (The Family of Imran); five times in the chapter Al-Ma’idah (The Table), and once each in the following chapters : Al-A’araf (The Heights), At-Tawba (Repentance), Al-Fath (Conquest) and Al-Hadeed (The Iron).

The word Injeel literally means glad tidings, as it was a book which contained glad tidings and guidance. The forty sixth verse of the chapter Al-Ma’idah expounds and elucidates upon this statement as follows :

"And in their footsteps We sent Jesus, the Son of Maryam (Mary), confirming the law that had come before him. We gave him the Gospel, therein was guidance and light and confirmation of the law that had come before him, a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah." 5/46.
