Isa’s birth was to be a message to the entire world and he was to be one of the righteous.
3:46 “He will speak to the people in the cradle and in

How righteous was ‘Isa? Allah told Maryam, in Sura Maryam 19:19, that ‘Isa would be “a faultless son.” The Injil Sharif teaches us that ‘Isa never killed anyone; he did not have a love for money; he never married; he spoke out against corruption among the religious leaders; he prayed every day; he fasted for 40 days and nights in which he did not eat anything at all; and he taught us to love our enemies.
If Isa ever committed a sin, then he would have ceased to be Allah’s Kalimatullah or Ruhullah and he could not have gone to heaven to be with Allah. Through Isa, Allah showed the world how “Completed” Muslims should live their lives. This would be a wonderful world if we all lived our lives like ‘Isa.
3:47 She said: “O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?” He said: “So (it will be) for Allâh creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: “Be!” and it is.
Maryam was shocked at the news that Allah gave her. She said to Allah, “How can I have a baby when I am not married and no man has ever touched me?”. Allah was very patient with Maryam. He answered her, “I am Allah; it is easy for me to do what I wish.”

However, to answer these questions we must look closely at the life of Adam…
