Missing Years

Christ's Missing Years: Any Details in Islam?

Short Answer:  The claims about Jesus’ travel to India are exaggerated and their sources are unreliable. What is absolutely necessary for us to know about Jesus’ life is mentioned in the Quran and Hadith. The rest is irrelevant. So in Islam, the question of any missing years does not arise in the case of any prophet, …

Help Christians Understand

How Can I Help Christians Understand Who Jesus Really Is?

Short Answer: Muslims believe that the one message spoken by all Prophets was the Oneness of God. Muslims believe that over time the one message proclaimed by all Prophets became distorted, either through translation or even by deliberate effort on the part of some. But they were never intended to last. The message revealed to Prophet Muhammad, however, was …

Jesus Between Crucifixion and Who Was Crucified

If Jesus Wasn't Crucified ... Then Who Was?

Salam (Peace) Dear Brother, Thank you for your question and for contacting Ask About Islam. The whole issue is about what really happened and not about making up a story so everyone is satisfied. The verse you quoted clearly states that Jesus (peace be upon him) was not crucified: {That they said (in boast), “We …

miss Christmas

New Muslim: My Children Miss Christmas With My Family

Short Answer: It’s up to you. Only you know your personal circumstances and what your new faith can handle. But keep in mind that you can’t live in a protected cocoon, shielding yourself and your family from your surroundings forever. Nor are you expected to do that because you embraced Islam. This sort of isolation isn’t …

Celebrate Christmas

Can I Celebrate Christmas to Honor Prophet Jesus' Birth?

Short Answer: Modern Christmas is not about honoring Jesus or about family; it’s about consumerism and materialism. Sure, you could celebrate Jesus, some might say, but is this pseudo-religious “holiday” really the best way to celebrate him? Isn’t it better to obey his teachings? Isn’t it better to be kind and generous and family-centered all the …

Muslims follow Jesus

Real Talk: Do Muslims Follow Jesus' Teachings?

Short Answer: Yes! But not in the way that Christians do. Muslims believe that the Quran is the final revelation of Almighty God to humankind. They believe that previous scriptures were indeed given, but that over the years these previous scriptures became altered, either deliberately or by mistake. While Muslims do follow Jesus’ (PBUH) teaching especially those about love–God is the …

The Lord's Prayer & The Last Supper: The Islamic Take

Short Answer: The Lord’s Prayer and the Last Supper are only “proof” of what Jesus said if you believe that what is recorded in the four Gospels of the Christian Church is actually what he said. This is the first, and probably the major, point of disagreement. Muslims believe that Islam is the natural religion of mankind and that it …

quran Jesus

What Does The Quran Say About Jesus?

Short Answer: In order to refute the false idea that the Christians had developed over the centuries, the Quran is at pains to insist that Jesus is not God. But, he is a central Prophet in Islam, anointed by God, the Messiah who will return and herald the end-times, and he was a spirit from God, bringing the Word …

Muhammad messiah

Why Isn't Prophet Muhammad Called 'Messiah'?‏

Short Answer: Because God doesn’t refer to Prophet Muhammad as the “Messiah”, but he does refer to Prophet Jesus that way, nine different times throughout the Quran. But, it’s important to know that God referring to Jesus as the “Messiah” does not mean that Jesus is somehow more than a man, a very, very good man who obeyed …

Jesus brothers

Did Jesus Have Brothers and Sisters?

Salam (Peace) Dear Irene, Thank you for your question and for wanting to know more about Islam. It is by knowing more about each other that we can dispel misconceptions which cause trouble. It is a sad fact that we often fear what we do not fully understand. Knowing more about Islam is also a sure …
