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.

Prophets Better

Why Are Some Prophets Better Than Others?

Short Answer: You have asked about the difference between God and the prophets.

Do Muslims Pray "In the Name of Muhammad"?

Short Answer: No, absolutely not. Muslims do not worship Muhammad like some Christians worship Jesus. He was only a man, a very good man, but a man, nonetheless.

What You Have Versus What God Has

The Transcendent and His Names

True Monotheism: What's Wrong With The Trinity?

Short Answer: Although both Muslims and Christians agree that there is only One God—the message of both Prophet Muhammad and Jesus—later teachings in Christianity teach a corrupted message, one not in line with true monotheism. “The Christian belief in Trinity undermines, contravenes, and invalidates the belief in Oneness. Christians say, God is One, but at the …

One God

Islam, Judaism, Christianity: Worshipping The Same God?

Short Answer: Yes! Muslims are worshipping the same God that Jews and Christians worship. We believe that God sent many prophets to mankind, all with the same message: worship God alone. That pure monotheistic message was diluted and corrupted over time. “Muslims believe that they have the fullest understanding of what that God is like …

What is the Value of Tawhid (Monotheism)? Part 1

Salam (Peace) Dear Brother, Thank you so much for sending us your message, and for posing your questions respectfully.
