10 points Christians should know about Muslims and Jesus

  1. Muslims love Jesus. We also love Abraham, Moses, and Noah, to name just a few other Prophets Muslims revere. May God's peace be upon all of these great messengers of God.
  2. Muslims also love the mother of Jesus, the Virgin Mary. We believe she was a pious and noble woman chosen over all of the women of the world.
  3. Muslims believe that Jesus was born miraculously of a virgin mother and no father. His birth is miraculous like the birth of Adam, the first human being, who was created with neither mother nor father.
  4. Muslims do not believe that Jesus was the son of God. God is so powerful and self-sufficient that He does not need a son or any kind of partner.
  5. In Arabic Bible the name for God is Allah. Therefore all Arab Christian call God Allah as Muslim do as well.
  6. Jesus did not die on the cross. Rather, God saved  him as his enemies were confused about him. Jesus was taken up by God to Heaven.
  7. Jesus is called Isa (pronounced Eesa) in Arabic.
  8. Jesus performed miracles by the Will of God, like healing the blind and those with leprosy.
  9. Jesus prayed to the same God as all Prophets and we pray to.
  10. Jesus will return before the end of the world.


This was a very helpful article...we should always be willing to better understand the way other people think...thanks


What Do Muslims Believe about Jesus?

Muslims respect and revere Jesus (peace be upon him). They consider him one of the greatest of God’s messengers to mankind. The Quran confirms his virgin birth, and a chapter of the Quran is entitled ‘Maryam’ (Mary). The Quran describes the birth of Jesus as follows:

(Remember) when the angels said, “O Mary, God gives you good news of a word from Him (God), whose name is the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, revered in this world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (to God). He will speak to the people from his cradle and as a man, and he is of the righteous.” She said, “My Lord, how can I have a child when no mortal has touched me?” He said, “So (it will be). God creates what He wills. If He decrees a thing, He says to it only, ‘Be!’ and it is.” (Quran, 3:45-47)

Jesus was born miraculously by the command of God, the same command that had brought Adam into being with neither a father nor a mother. God has said:

The case of Jesus with God is like the case of Adam. He created him from dust, and then He said to him, “Be!” and he came into being. (Quran, 3:59)

During his prophetic mission, Jesus performed many miracles. God tells us that Jesus said:

“I have come to you with a sign from your Lord. I make for you the shape of a bird out of clay, I breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God’s permission. I heal the blind from birth and the leper. And I bring the dead to life by God’s permission. And I tell you what you eat and what you store in your houses....” (Quran, 3:49)

Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified. It was the plan of Jesus’ enemies to crucify him, but God saved him and raised him up to Him. And the likeness of Jesus was put over another man. Jesus’ enemies took this man and crucified him, thinking that he was Jesus. God has said:

...They said, “We killed the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God.” They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but the likeness of him was put on another man (and they killed that man)... (Quran, 4:157)

Neither Muhammad nor Jesus came to change the basic doctrine of the belief in one God, brought by earlier prophets, but rather to confirm and renew it.1

(1) Muslims also believe that God revealed a holy book to Jesus called the Injeel, some parts of which may be still available in the teachings of God to Jesus in the New Testament. But this does not mean that Muslims believe in the Bible we have today because it is not the original scriptures that were revealed by God. They underwent alterations, additions, and omissions. This was also said by the Committee charged with revising The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version). This Committee consisted of thirty-two scholars who served as members of the Committee. They secured the review and counsel of an Advisory Board of fifty representatives of the co-operating denominations. The Committee said in the Preface to The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version), p. iv, “Sometimes it is evident that the text has suffered in transmission, but none of the versions provides a satisfactory restoration. Here we can only follow the best judgment of competent scholars as to the most probable reconstruction of the original text.” The Committee also said in the Preface, p. vii, “Notes are added which indicate significant variations, additions, or omissions in the ancient authorities (Mt 9.34; Mk 3.16; 7.4; Lk 24.32, 51, etc.).”

ONE THING FOR SURE THERE IS A HEAVEN AND A HELL FOR ETERNAL LIFE AFTER DEATH. One thing for sure is one day you will believe that Jesus Christ is God's son. Because we all are going to meet him. He is the one that will say where we spend eternity. Is it worth hell to deny him? God loves all humans and wants us to love each other. Pray to God and ask him to reveal Jesus to you and ask him to forgive your sins in Jesus name. Read the Holy bible and pray for understanding, the truth is there. A true believer loves all humans regardless of where he comes from. Show love to each other.



Have you even read the bible? That thing is a mess. I left Christianity because of that thing and reverted to Islam after reading the Qur'ān and fell in love with it


Miami, Florida

As I have always said, there is only one God of all creation. Makes no difference if you call Him Allah or God. If it weren't for the jews trying to claim Him as theirs only there would be no problem. The jews also claim to be the "chosen" and might well have been, however they rebuked God at every step. They ignored and kept none of the covenants He gave then. They even wrote the Talmud that they use as their " holy book". It is the biggest works of hate ever compiled, yet they go by it.


Everywhere, USA

Sorry Moses! Allah (God) as explained by you in three forms is nit tenable.God is supernatural, beyond description, not a BEING as you and me, Sun, Light, Power, Magnetism, Air, Direction or anything that humans can mesure & describe in physical terms. There are 'impossible' things even with God, just it is impossible for a human to manifest in a computer or robot he creates. Human beings create robots that do things impossible to even the human himself, but that does not equate the robot to a human.IT IS THEREFORE 'IMPOSSIBLE' FOR GOD TO MANIFEST (AS A BODY OR WHATEVER) IN A JESUS WHO WAS A PHYSICAL PERSON EATING, SLEEPING AND WALKING.


Kano, Nigeria

Allah can be whatever he wishes. To say that Allah cant be Jesus or a man or a robot is very misleading. Allah yes, is not a person. And Allah is certainly omnipresent. That means he is everywhere and in anything he wishes.
There is simply no limit for Allah to be or not be. If Allah decides to be a man a bird or even a fly, Allah can be. Allah is anything he wants. There is absolutely no limits for Allah. None.



The Problem with understanding Jesus is about Faith... one should know that it is very helpful to read the Torah for a true reference on who the prophets for told of .And who the Yehoshua Ben Nun, was to be.... Who he would be and what he would accomplish for the people of the world. Not just jews and Christians The prophets Often referred to Him as the branch to come. And Him who “would take root below and bring fruit above” To God the father. The same Prophets that Mohammad so graciously accepts in the first portion of the Koran and so hastily disregards in the second portion . Strangely... this seems to, coincide with his rejection as a prophet. from the Jews and Christian. It is possible that things changed for Mohamad at this point.But, To understand JESUS and. His birth you must understand the need for the birth. You need to see why Man needed an atonement for their sins. You see, God Looked down and saw that no man could claim righteousness enough to represent him self at the judgment. No man could be found worthy to become part of the kingdom of God. And all men would be condemned at the judgment to come. Being a merciful God as both Muslims and Christians profess. God did have a plan for the salvation of all man, not just the Muslims. .As man was busy about trying to prove to God he was worthy of redemption. He was failing miserably threw all sorts of pagan and ritualistic worship. God new, that according the laws of heaven, which had now been sent on earth through ABRAHAM, these same laws had come to disallow man to be able to ascend to heaven. What had been sent to give life and elevate man had in fact condemned him. The law of Life had caused death to man because his flashily sin nature and body was just to putrid to become clean through the keeping of the Law. This is how much purer and perfect God is them men. According to the law of God Given through Moses and the prophets, we would all now be condemned to death eternally. Yes the laws that were sent to give life they, in fact condemned man to everlasting condemnation. Eternal torture. This is the deal that God made in heaven for mans redemption. The heavenly Host all watching to see if God would keep his word. Like a good king who would even sacrifice his son if promised. Now the enemy of God “Satin” was quite satisfied he could twart Gods plan, and he is in fact still at work .But God had a plan of redemption. That through the pure and holy sinless offering of one man all men could be redeemed. Sounds strange to us but if you really under stood the atonement process of God , you would see it fits quite well with Gods requirement for sin to be washed away. For God has decreed that only pure sinless blood can wash away sins. So, the Atonement had to be made prom a pure blood line and be sinless. This was the only way ... for men to be saved.Now you might ask what about good works.. Yes they are needed to show your answer to that which is being offered to you. But they alone cannot wash away the sin They act as a answer to God that you agree with what is written in His laws. Your good loving and kind righteous works, act as a sign between you and God that you agree that these things are right. But if your guilty of not doing all that is right which is written in the law of the prophets, then... at that same time you agree they are right. But you your self can see that you are worthy of the punishment they require. For it is written that you must be clear of doing all the Law and any one who breaks one of the Laws of God Breaks all of them, So you should start to see that you also need the atonement of Pure and righteous blood to make you clean from all sin. Many don’t see it like this.This is why it is so hard for men of all creeds to accept the sin offering that YESHUA is. For God so love us that he offered his only pure atoning sacrifice, the one true pure sinless man,. His SonSo Muslims being taught not to believe this is nothing new or different. It has been the test of all humanity for all time . To those who had to believe he would come... and to those who had to believe ha has come ...and will again at the end of the age..This is the real difference between Christians and Muslim. As good Muslim will abstain from all types of sin. And evil.. That is good. But also the true and faithful Christian will do the same. For we too are call unto obedience through Faith. Both have faults and fall short of their Goal. This Goal of righteousness can-not be attained in our self. We cannot wipe clean our selves enough to make our selves clean. God says even though you was your self with Acid and scrub with Pure snow, you will not be seen as clean in His sight. God is not a man like us who can be stood in from of with flesh. He is pure Light, and Spirit. You see we have been tainted with human sin. From the first man Adams sin, we have all received the condemnation of the death sentence and are unable to keep all the Holy law of God, in our fleshly bodies. We put a Vail over a woman’s face but it is the sinful lust within the man which is the true sin. Not her beauty which temps our week flesh, but it is our week flesh which is unable to control itself. We are sinful in our nature, and it is contrary to God. But the spirit of Christ living in us can control it. And if we walk in his spirit we can be washed clean from the sin which so easily temps us all.Since we can-not keep the Law of God . God sent Jesus, Yeshua ,..A prophet/ yes and so much more.. He is the atonement for our sins. The Love he has shown us through his obedience to God the father, is the same that he wants us to show to one another. In the mercy and peace of love toward our fellow man he calls us to practice mercy . Not hatred and Judgment.He said Mercy triumphs over Judgment. That is your judgment of other whom you are just as guilty of , guilty of the same like passions and sin. Then, if you Judge others for that which you your selves are guilty of, then you are all the more condemned. Your self. If your teachers teach you judgment you your selves will be judged with that same judgment as you your selves have committed the same kinds of sins in your life. You who are Muslim. Jews or Christians..and judge others with your Laws of sin . You will be judged with out mercy, if you do not come into the mercy of Jesus, and stop judging others to death. Therefore judge with mercy and love and kindness, and abstain form al that is sinful. But lead other in love and mercy not judgment and over-lording. We all need the adornment for our sins to enter into the kingdom of the Father. Don’t get hung up on the idea that God has no Son. He doses have a Son and He came to relieve you of your eternal punishment . If you will become obedient to his testimony. The Father God of all creation, sent him to atone for our sins . For the Muslim that stuggels with this understand this .. He Jesus did say the “ father is greater then I.” So yes the Father is grater then Jesus. But Jesus was one with him in spirit. He came to do the will Of God for mens sake. The same as you might think that Mohamad is one in spirit with God. Jesus was. He was the son of god so he could make atonement. Mohamad made no atonement for your sins. Jesus the Messiah did. If you miss this you miss everything.I hope this helps some to see that although secularism has infiltrated the believer in Christ, it has also enter into the Muslim faith. So let us not judge each other for our faults in short comings toward God. But come into the grace and mercy of the atoning one, He will wash you clean and set you free from judgment and fill your heart with love and peace that transcends understanding.Peace and love in the name of God the father and his Sone the atonement for our sins,



I immensly enjoy reading and educating myself regarding the Muslim f and Jesus. I think as we read something that does not directly line up with our traditional teachings, we should think about our comments before implementing them on line. We believe we are being critical, when in reality we are being judgemental. The bible talks about Not judging. We are all in search of the truth. I know this for certain: when I reverted to Muslim my character became more confident within myself and a knowing that Allah is too powerful to be man or woman, Allah is Allah or God is God! That ALONE speaks volumes of learning about Muslim. Also I noticed I was not focused on the material issues as I was as a Christian. There are multiple teachings in the Muslim arena. If you choose to disagree, it's okay, however we must be careful with our words and tones. After all Allah, God is not the author of confusion. Humans are! As students of new learnings, indulge yourself with what is said. Maybe you are still searching, because deep inside you are not satisfied where you are. Find peace with yourself. Do what is right for you. Two of my blood sisters do not literally speak to me today because I am Muslim. They are Christians. Allah does not separate families, neither did Jesus or any of the other prophets for that matter. Why are they so angry? In trust, and truth, they are judging me. I am hurt, I just hope we will be able to communicate before one of us dies. I love my sisters. But we all make choices.

Keep it going you'll be rewarded inchaallah , and try to introduce them to islam and change their mind like you have changed yours , and a little advice : do no ever try to please them by going to church with them or something , people who do not accept you for your choices are not people who you do want to worship .
