The Qur’an also affirms the substitutionary atonement that was prophesied and foreshadowed and foretold in Genesis 22. Surah Al Saffat 37:107 – “We ransomed Him with a mighty sacrifice.” و فدینه بذبح عظیم By affirming the truth of Genesis 22, Muhammad affirmed the truth of substitutionary atonement and redemption. فدینه is from the word for “redemption”, فدا ، فدیه The innocent ram in Genesis 22, (and lambs, goats, sheep in Exodus 12, book of Leviticus, Isaiah 53) – all point to the sins being layed on the innocent victim and being sacrificed ذبح / slaughtered in the place of the guilty humans/sinners. “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and give His life a ransom (فد یه، فدا ) for many.” Mark 10:45
Jesus Al Masih عیسی المسیح is the fulfillment of all that Old Testament teaching on sacrifice, substitutionary atonement.
