Greetings of peace,
This post is an answer to a new friend whom I recently met and respect , a devout Christian passionate about sharing his religion with others , who challenged me to provide some proofs regarding why Muslims don't accept the doctrine of original sin; a doctrine ( including the concept of trinity ) that was added by the Church at the Council of Nicaea some 325 years after Jesus left the earth. Notice I say left the earth ( meaning resurected alive by Allah ) and not died yet or crucify as some claims , but that is a topic for another day. Back to the doctrine of original sin.
Are we born with so called Original sin or born innocent ?
Is a Newly Born Baby really a Sinner? Islam Challenges The Concept of Original Sin. Let us found out why ?
“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers, every man shall be put to death for his own sin.”
(Jeremiah 31:30): “But every one shall die for his own iniquity...”
(Ezekiel 18:20): “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father; neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
After reading the above verses, would you not agree that The Bible itself teaches that each of us is responsible for our own actions?

Let us ponder what the Quran has to say :

Let's us now watch few videos about the subject matter and then go back to our conversation .
To seek forgiveness, one must sincerely repent directly to the one from whom forgiveness emanates, Allah.
Adam and Eve were responsible for their own sin. They both repented and they were both forgiven by Allah. There is no need for anyone to die for anyone . You can never establish justice by injustice ( Killing an innocent man for the sins of others is the ultimate injustice )
The Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful
Allah does not forgive that anything should be associated with Him, but He forgives anything other than this to whomsoever He pleases; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he devises indeed a great sin. (4.48)
