Oh Ok.. well my point was different and historical times I was thinking about the conversions are different
The main thing is quite simple : Jesus is not God and he tells it himself! (5:116) You can take this from many heretical sects of the early Christianity and, of course, from the Jews.
But they all believe that Jesus is not God , do they?
I did not get the Question as well use of that verse in our discussion on conversion.,
Anyway well let me put that verse here..
5: 116. And when Allah will say: O Isa son of Marium! did you say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: Glory be to Thee, it did not befit me that I should say what I had no right to (say); if I had said it, Thou wouldst indeed have known it; Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in Thy mind, surely Thou art the great Knower of the unseen things.
Are you talking about present Muslims? .. present Christians Or Sects of Christianity before Islam and during very initial periods of Islam say ..in 550 to 650 AD??
and what is that verse has to do with conversion??
True No Muslim any time believed/believes that "Jesus is god or son of god"
., As far as sects of Christianity before Islam is concerned., there were so many., Some might have believed Jesus is God... I think some sects did believe Jesus God. And then you have that Trinity _Business—
where their God is three distinct persons who are co eternal, coequal, and indivisibly united in one being,.. whatever.,
But I don't get it .. what is that has to do with Conversion in to Islam ..say in 8th....9th..10th..11th century ? That verse and such verses of Quran might have played a role at very initial stages of Islam even before the birth of that Muhammad of Islam..
You're wrong. Some have been "made Muslims" by the Quran. The Arabs who build the mosque in the Temple Mount (637) followed what say the text in 2:125-127. Was they were Muslim as we know it ? Nope. But they were enough to follow what said the text. And there was no Islamic state.
well I was and I am wrong in many times but here ..... you are taking 7th century conversions and I am talking about conversion much later out of Arabian peninsula ... on top of that such statements as 5: 116.... are already there in those OT/NT books.. So what is new in Quran that makes people convert in to Islam??
