Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Salam Alaikum Brother.
In Quran , In Surah Tauba mention that Jews beleives that Hazrat Uzair (PBUH) was a son of Allah ?
Does Jews are lying that they dont beleive in Uzair as son of Allah ?
Also Did Jews at that time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ever denied when this Ayah was revealed ?

Uzair jews son of Allah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: In Quran , In Surah Tauba mention that Jews beleives that Hazrat Uzair (PBUH) was a son of Allah ?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 30:
30 The Jews call Uzair (Ezra) a son of Allah and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouths; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the truth!
Your Question: Does Jews are lying that they dont beleive in Uzair as son of Allah ?
Just as in Christianity and unfortunately today even in Islam, the Jews had divided their religion into several sects, and a good number amongst those Jewish sects used to believe in Prophet Uzair as the son of Allah.
Your Question: Also Did Jews at that time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ever denied when this Ayah was revealed ?
There is absolutely no record and no question of any amongst the Jews denying that they believed Allah had sons; for the very basis of religious belief formed by the Jews was they were all the sons of God and His beloveds!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 18:
18 (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are sons of Allah and His beloved." Say: "Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay ye are but men of the men He hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all)."
Even in the current Old Testament there are several references which portray the (self-invented) belief of Jews as being the sons of the God All-Mighty!
Old Testament Book of Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, all the sons of God (the Jews) shouted for joy.
Old Testament 29th Psalm 1st verse: O ye sons of Elim (El being the name of God, the sons being the Jews)
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
