Is Allah Jesus?

10 Things Christians Should Know About Muslims And Jesus

A December 2019 Gallup poll found that the percentage of Americans who describe their Christmas celebrations as "strongly religious" has dropped to 35 percent. This is down from about half in previous measures in 2005 and 2010. Nonetheless, Christmas is celebrated by over 90 percent of Americans, which commemorates the birth of Prophet Jesus, God’s peace be upon him.

He is the central figure of Christianity, the religion of the European settlers who came to the country, and whose influence has defined American culture for over two centuries. What few Americans know is that he is important in Islam as well.
Is Allah Jesus? Here are 10 key things to know about Jesus in Islam:

  1. Jesus is considered a Prophet and Messenger of the One, All-Powerful God. Muslims offer words of prayer after saying his name, as they do for other Prophets and Messengers. In English, the phrase “peace be upon him” is a prayer seeking God’s peace for the Prophet being spoken of. 
  2. 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.
  3. Muslims also love the mother of Jesus, Mary. We believe she was a pious and noble woman chosen over all of the women of the world. The 19th chapter of the Quran is named after her. 
  4. Muslims believe that Jesus was born miraculously of a virgin mother and no father. His birth is miraculous like the birth of Prophet Adam, the first human being, who was created with neither mother nor father (Quran 3:59).
  5. Muslims do not believe that Jesus was the son of God (Quran 5:116). God is so Powerful and Self-Sufficient that He does not need a son or any kind of partner.
  6. In the Arabic Bible the name for God is “Allah”. Arab Christians call God “Allah”, as Muslims do. Prophet Jesus is called “Eesa” in Arabic (sometimes spelled “Isa” or “Eissa” in English).
  7. Jesus did not die on the cross. Rather, God saved him from his enemies and it was made to appear that he was killed (Quran 4:157). He was raised to Heaven.
  8. Jesus performed miracles by the Will of God, like healing the blind and those with leprosy (Quran 3:49).
  9. Jesus prayed to the same All-Powerful One God as all of the Prophets who preceded and succeeded him. 
  10. Jesus will return before the end of the world.


This is absolutely correct. There is nothing wrong written here. Additionally, when Muslims believe in Jesus, being the Prophet of Allah, (and not his son, may Allah forgive me), as well as Noah, Moses, they respect them. In return, the expect the same respect for the Last Prophet Muhammad (SAW). When the non Muslim extremists say negative things about Islam, and the Prophet, it not only offends but hurts them as well. This should be avoided so that mutual inter-religious respect can prevail.



Thanks for the info! I consider myself to be a Gnostic Christian; a Syncretist who believes the truth that Belief brings us closer to each other, and need not seperate us. I accept The reality of Islam, Judeo-Christianity, and even the Indigenous Religions. All Have threads of constancy that run through them, all Sound live harmoniously with their Bretheren. One of My favorite pieces of art is a Medieval picture of Jesus and Mohammad entering Mecca on the backs of donkeys. That To me has always spoken what needs to be among Brothers and sisters Whatever our beliefs are. we Should be able to similarly recognize and respect each others faith, culture and just be good to each other. Peace be with Us All under God.



Christianity is a different creature considering that the "small factor" of the trinity is in fact massive. Beside the fact that it has been written that Christ is in fact the Savior as well as the final prophet, the belief in the trinity is the major separator. Christ was the Son of God, and through this, he died on the cross, as it is written and recorded. Paul of Tarsus did not add the idea in later, it was UNDERSTOOD before that Christ was one with the father, that he is incarnate God. You cannot make apples into oranges. Christ reigns alone. Muhammad is not only later, out of Christian perspective as Christ is the final prophet in our faith, and only false Christians would believe otherwise. If there is a bridge between the two faiths, then it is a form of conversion, not a union. Christians are falling to a smaller group. There are those who do not belief that Christ is God, and they are false, and are no longer Christian. The term CHRISTian implies otherwise. I have many friends who are Muslim, but I never pretend that we have the same faith, or even a similar faith. We pray to the same God, which is the closest base we have. Christianity is a small faith in this era, and we are different than what is accepted to be a Christian. Tolerance is not blending. We are spiritual brothers, but we will and must always have our differences.

Has there been no comments since 2004?The difference is that in Christianity Jesus is the main prophet, and in Islam Mohamed is the main prophet. In Islam we always hear mostly about Prophet Mohamed, and Jesus is not talked about very much. Also in Chrisianity they do not acknowledge Prophet Mohamed at all.



A very clear explanation of the Muslim view. Many nominal Protestant Christians do not believe Jesus is the Son of God, as I, along with many Roman Catholics & fundamental Protestants do. The nominal Protestant Christians, a very large number, are a factor in the spread of the Muslim faith. i.e. if you don't accept Jesus as the Son of God, you are already almost there. I figure Europe will be Muslim in 20 or so years, at the rate they are goiong, and the United States is not far behind. The future of the Catholic Christian faith rests with the Hispanics. One reason for the hostility in America to the Hispanics is because the are predominately Roman Catholic, and this country has a long history of Anti-Catholic sentiment.I appreciated your explanation of the differents.Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

The article truthfully projects what the Muslims believe which generally coforms to the Chritian belief. The basic difference is between the Muslim belief of Jesus being an important Prophet of God against Christian belief of being the son of God. God is omnipotent. He is above the family needs. People should not be oblivious of this fact. A religious harmony will please the God most.

Very true, Jesus is the mighty messenger of Allah like the other prophets, Not the son of God or Lord. " There is No God but Allaah and Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah "



I like this article. because it is very informative. In my opinion both Muslim and Cristian beleive in same God (Allah). We have to make good research to find out right way. Otherwise, we can't answer the question of God (Allah) "I give you mind to think and envisage, why you did not do that". we have to read a lot of things. and not based on things someone told us



There is no other God but God and Jesus is his messenger. God is good and merciful. God is great.



It's a little confusing to me that the Muslim faith regards Jesus so higly and believe 80% of what was written about him, ie: the virgin birth, the miracles, his return ect., except for the main claim..that he is God in the flesh, the way the truth and the life. Jesus is either a lunatic, a liar or who he says he is and not merely a profit. Someone please me out here.
