Dear Brother / Sister,
It is necessary to tell people about the existence and oneness of Allah first when we tell them about the religion of Islam. For, it is easier to tell a person who believes inthe existence and oneness of Allah about other issues. It is necessary to tell (especially) Christians about the belief of oneness and that Hz. Isa (Jesus) is a prophet of Allah. The questions related to other issues that come to your mind can be answered through this website.
ANSWER TO JEWS AND CHRISTIANS FROM THE QURAN
In the Quran, there are concise and silencing answers to the wrong claims of Jews and Christians. Some of them are as follows:
Jews claim that Paradise is exclusively for them. The Quran answers them as follows:
"Say: "If the last Home, with Allah, be for you specially, and not for anyone else, then seek ye for death, if ye are sincere." But they will never seek for death, on account of the (sins) which their hands have sent on before them. and Allah is well-acquainted with the wrong-doers." (al-Baqara, 2/94-95)
Jews and Christians regard themselves as Allah's distinguished slaves. The Quran answers these wrong claims of theirs as follows:
"Why then doth Allah punish you for your sins?" (al-Maida, 5/18)
Jews and Christians utter this claim: "Hz. Ibrahim was one of us.'' The Quran silences them as follows:
"Ye People of the Book! Why dispute ye about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel Were not revealed Till after him? Have ye no understanding?" (Aal-i Imran, 3/65).
Christians misinterpreted the fact that Hz. Isa was sent to the world without a father. They accepted him and his mother Hz. Maryam (Mary) as deities. The Quran clarifies this issue as follows:
"The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was." (Aal-i Imran, 3/59)
That is, to understand that Hz. Isa was born without a father is not something that human mind cannot grasp. Allah creates as He wishes. As a matter of fact, He created Hz. Adam, who was the first man, out of dust, without a father and mother. Then, He blew spirit into him with the command "BE". Hz. Adam, who was created without a mother and father, does not have to be a deity; Hz. Isa, who was created without a father, does not have to be a deity, either.
It is very significant that when Hz. Isa had just been born, he spoke as a miracle and his first statement was, "I am indeed a servant of Allah." (Maryam, 19/30) That is, Hz. Isa rejected the Christians who would call him a deity in the future with his first words. Yes, he is not the son of Allah - God forbid – but a servant (slave) of Allah.
"And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah.?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden." (al-Maida, 5/116)
