Real Talk Do Muslims Follow Jesus Teachings

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 …

Jesus

The Second Coming of Jesus

Short Answer: In Islam, the second coming of Christ (PBUH) is not only one of the peculiar signs of The Final Hour, but it is also a glorious conclusion of the history-long confrontation between tawheed (monotheism) of all genuine prophets on the one hand, and the multitude of polytheist deviations (deifying Jesus, etc.) that corrupted the teachings of Jesus after his …

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, …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Divine Qualities

Why Does The Quran Attribute Divine Qualities to Jesus?

Salam (Peace) Brother, Thank you for your question and for contacting Ask About Islam. The original word for messiah in Arabic, Hebrew, and Aramaic- which is the language that was spoken by Jesus (peace be upon him), is Maseeh with a slight pronunciation difference between Arabic and Aramaic. This has been translated into “Christ” in English which is …

Is Jesus The Incarnation of God?

Salam (Peace) Dear Brother, Thank you for your question and for contacting Ask About Islam. To properly understand the nature of Jesus, one has to resort either to a divine source or to what Jesus himself declared and emphasized. It can be proven that the Quran is the word of God, remaining intact as revealed.  In …
