Explanation of an aayat in Surah Maaidah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In surah Maaida Allah has said to Hazrat Isa (Alayhis Salaam) that ‘and when I taught you writing, Al‑Hikmah (the power of understanding), the Tawraat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)’. How did Allah teach him?


A: Allah Ta`ala teaches and His teaching is in different ways. Sometimes His teaching is through an angel, sometimes it is an inspiration that is instilled into the heart.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
