Jesus a Prophet of Islam

Jesus the Messiah in Islam, in Christianity & in Reality

Christians and Muslims have differed for centuries over the nature and status of Jesus Christ. Both religions revere him and both believe him to be of virgin birth. Both religions claim to know his true nature and purpose.

Here is how Allah ordered Muhammad to follow the religion of the Patriarch Abraham: "So We have taught thee the inspired (Message), "Follow the ways of Abraham the True in Faith, and he joined not gods with God.""

The Religion of Islam

Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God". The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will Read more ...
