Is there a Christian Gospel version or an Islamic Gospel version? Our question is: Where is the Islamic version of the Gospel? We have never found such a version! What is called the written Gospel is known as the New Testament. This Gospel was in circulation when Muhammad was born. Muhammad's uncle, his wife Maryam, and Muhammad himself knew of this Gospel. When Islam was born, the Gospel had been in circulation for 500 years.
If there is another Gospel, we have never seen it. Certainly, it was not what is called the Gospel of Barnabas which became known only around 1300 AD. A lot of its contents are in conflict with the Quran and the New Testament. It even teaches that Muhammad is the Messiah (AI Masih), although the Quran teaches that Jesus is the Messiah.
The Injil, along with the rest of Bible, has been translated into Arabic. Followers of Isa Al-Masih believe that every person should be able to read, hear, and understand the Gospel in his own language. The only way that a person can truly understand the Injil is to read it in his heart language. When a person has to read or even hear the Injil in any language other than their own, they will miss things. Therefore, the Injil has been translated into Arabic. Thus Arabic speakers can read the Injil in their own language.
Allah is not limited to only one language. He is all-knowing and can understand every language! Allah wants us to come to Him using our heart language. Allah knows that this is important if we are to truly understand Him. We must use our heart language to express our deepest thoughts and emotions.
The Injil is for everyone! Allah wants all people to understand the Gospel so they can know Him through Isa Al-Masih. “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son (Isa Al-Masih) that all who believe in Him will not die but have eternal life” (Injil, John 3:16). God sent Isa Al-Masih to earth to die for the sins of the whole world!
