Jesus is given in the Qur'an a position very close to Allah, he is not only raised to paradise, but to Allah Himself, he has the place "nearest to Allah" as 3:45 even says:
Sura 4:158. Nay, Allah raised him [Jesus] up unto Himself; ...
Sura 3:45. ... Jesus, Son of Mary; high honored shall he be in this world and the next, near stationed to Allah.
The Qur'an condemns with strong words those who worship Jesus as God (through the rethorical device of Jesus himself denying to ever have asked for such worship):
They do blaspheme who say: "Allah is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah - Allah will forbid him the garden and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help..
-- Sura 5:72
And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden.
Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say to wit 'worship God my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them and Thou art a witness to all things.
-- Sura 5:119-120
And now the verse that brings the contradiction to the above:
Surely you and what you worship besides Allah
are the firewood of hell; to it you shall come.
-- Sura 21:98
The logic is clear, Jesus is not God [5:75], millions of Christians are worshiping Jesus today and even the Qur'an acknowledges this [5:119], therefore Jesus will be fuel for the Hell fire [21:98] together with the Christians. This clearly contradicts the verses on Jesus' special place near to Allah [Sura 3:45; 4:158 and others].
==> Muhammad himself gave this response after his revelation was questioned on those same grounds.
