How Can Jesus Be a Prophet: I Thought he Was Divine?

Short Answer: The Christians claim that Jesus was/is God incarnate – that he was the Son of God or God Himself born as His own Son.

Why Are The Prophets' Stories Incomplete?

Asalamu Alaikum Ahmad,  Thank you for contacting About Islam with your question. …

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.

From Where Did Luqman Hail?

Salam, Thank you for sending in your question to our website, brother Mohammed. There are two opinions about Luqman, the wise man, among Muslim scholars.
