The term Son of God signified Jesus' special and unique relationship with the Father as the Father's representative (Heb. ). Muhammad said that Jesus worshiped Allah.

    Al-Samawal al-Maghribi referred to this verse also in his book as a prophecy of Muhammad. He said that Mount Sinai refers to Moses, Mount Seir "the Mount of Esau" refers to Jesus, and Mount Paran "the Mount of Ishmael" refers to Muhammad. Since, many Muslim scholars have looked to Deuteronomy 33 as containing a prophetic prediction of Muhammad.   Indeed, as Bernard Lewis observed in his book Islam: The Religion and the People, Islam rejects the fatherhood of God--something well-established within the Judaeo-Christian tradition (though Jews, of course, would not see it as descriptive of a unique relationship between God the Son, Jesus, and God the Father)--and considers it a blasphemy, redolent of shirk, the most grievous : Andrew M. Greenwell.
