There are seventeen attributes in the Qur’an that have not been given to any person or prophet in any era except to Jesus Christ (His peace be upon us). These attributes are:

1 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) was born of a virgin distinct from all human beings and all the prophets without exception. Mary said to the angel, “She said, ‘How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, and I was never unchaste?’” (Maryam 19:20).

2 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone was given the title Messiah (Al-Masih): “Al-Masih, Isa, the son of Mary…” (Al-Nisa 4: 171).

3 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) is the Only One who is called the Word of God, which means the right expression of the True God, the Word of God is Eternal: “…The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, is the Messenger of God, and His Word that He conveyed to Mary …” (Nisa 4: 171 and Amran 3: 45).

4 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) is the Only called the Spirit of God in the sense of emergence, so He did not need the birth of sexual intercourse like the rest of the people: “… The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, is the Messenger of God, and His Word that He conveyed to Mary, and a Spirit from Him…” (Al-Nisa 4: 171).

5 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone spoke in the cradle, “Say, ‘Whether you conceal what is in your hearts, or disclose it, God knows it.’ He knows everything in the heavens and the earth. God is Powerful over everything. On the Day when every soul finds all the good it has done presented. And as for the evil it has done, it will wish there were a great distance between them. God cautions you of Himself. God is Kind towards the servants.” (Maryam 19: 29-30). The Qur’an tells us that Christ did not need anyone to teach Him anything, not even speech, “And He will teach him the Scripture and wisdom, and the Tawrat and the Injil” (Al-Imran 3:48).

6 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone is distinguished from all the prophets by being without sin. All the prophets’ sins are mentioned in the Qur’an, but not Christ’s. “The Angels said, “O Mary, God gives you good news of a Word from Him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, well-esteemed in this world and the next, and one of the nearest.” (Al-Imran 3: 45).

7 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) is the Only one who is blessed where He goes “and made me blessed where I was and recommended me to pray and Zakat as long as you alive” (Mary 19:31).

8 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone is distinguished from all creation: “A messenger to the Children of Israel: ‘I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I make for you out of clay the figure of a bird; then I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s leave’” (Al – Imran 3: 49).

9 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone was able to do the miracles that could not be done by others: “And I heal the blind and the leprous” (Al-Imran 3: 49).

10 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone was able to raise the dead: “and I revive the dead, by God’s leave” (Al-Imran 3: 49 and Table 5 110).

11 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone knows the secrets of the unseen, “And I inform you concerning what you eat, and what you store in your homes. In that is a sign for you, if you are believers” (Al – Imran 3: 49).

12 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone exchanged the responsibility of authority with God, “…And I was a witness over them while I was among them; but when You took me to Yourself, You became the Watcher over them—You are Witness over everything” (Table 5: 117).

13 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone became a Sign to people and Mercy of God, “Thus said your Lord, `It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign for humanity, and a mercy from Us. It is a matter already decided’” (Maryam 19:21).

14- Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone prophesied of his death and resurrection from the dead: “So Peace is upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the Day I get resurrected alive” (Maryam 19:33).

15 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone can give His followers a high position and confirmation of the Day of Resurrection: “God said, ‘O Jesus, I am terminating your life, and raising you to Me, and clearing you of those who disbelieve. And I will make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve, until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return; then I will judge between you regarding what you were disputing’” (Al-Imran 3:55).

16 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone is the sign of the hour, “He is a portent of the Hour, so have no doubt about it, and follow Me. This is a straight way” (Al-Zukhruf 43: 61). Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) alone will be the Judge who comes to the world to judge the living and the dead. The truth has been confirmed by the Hadith: “The Hour shall not be until the Son of Maryam descends as Just Judge.”

17 – Isa Al-Masih (His peace be upon us) is the only one who was supported by the Holy Spirit: “When God will say, “O Jesus son of Mary, recall My favor upon you and upon your mother, how I supported you with the Holy Spirit’” (Al-Maida 5:110).
