The Koran and Christ, the Prophet and the Virgin

The Koran is the Islamic Incarnation. It represents a ‘descent’ (tanzil) by the action of the Holy Spirit (Ar-Ruh, called here Jibril–or Gabriel), which impregnated the Prophet who gave birth to the Divine Word. Put in this way, we can see that the Prophet does not correspond with Christ, but with the Virgin Mary. And so we find the traditional account of the infant Mohammed having his chest opened by angels who used snow to cleanse him of a black stain on his heart, removing the taint of original sin completely, just like the Virgin Mary. Likewise, the Prophet is said to be ‘a man, not as men are, but in the manner of a jewel among stones,’ just as Christians say in the Ave Maria, ‘blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.’
