The Muslim Jesus
by Rassool Auckbaraullee
In the Name of
God, the Benevolent, the Merciful. Praisebe to God, Lord of the Worlds,
the Benevolent, the Merciful, the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One, the Source of Peace, the Mighty and the Wise.
Your reading correctly, no mistake in the title Jesus is Muslim. It’s nothing new for us Muslims, but very strange for you (Christians). You thought we
knew nothing about him. You think we have no attachment to Jesus. You think we have no right Jesus. How wrong you are. All this time you thought he was yours. The Jews don't accept him to be the
Messiah, but we do. After reading this, you will be educated. For too long I have come across Christians in North America and Europe and Muslims as well, who have no idea that that we believe in
Jesus, and in fact he's on our side, and he is Muslim. That was your ignorance, and get ready for the truth. We believe that we know him more accurately as to the Historical Jesus.
God’s beloved servant Jesus is one of the most influential prophets of Islam. Just as are the other prophets; Jesus is a chosen servant of God assigned
to summon people to the true path. However, there are some attributes of Jesus distinguishing him from other prophets, the most important one being that he was raised up to God in Heaven and he
will come back to earth again in the end-times. God tells the story of the life of Jesus in the Quran.
The Virgin Mary
In difficult times, a recently widowed woman prayed to God and offered her unborn child to God’s
service. She had in mind that her son would become a rabbi. God heard her prayer, but she gave birth to a girl, Mary. From then on, the Lord made Mary grow in purity and beauty. God says,
“Mary, God has chosen you and purified you. He has chosen you over all other women.” The Lord give you glad tidings that you shall be blessed with the Word. His name will be Jesus. He will be honored by Him in this world and in the Hereafter and he
will have his place among the nearest to His Lord. Quran 3-45. Amazing, this might be difficult for you to believe that we even know Jesus, and his blessed mother Mary, and how much we love them both, because you only heard
about Muhammad, and that I do blame earlier Muslims for not addressing Jesus before, but I am doing my best now. The only difference is we love God more, and give him all due praise, because he is
the Creator. A very important fact about Mary is - she is the only women mentioned by name in the Quran. There is an entire chapter dedicated to her, called Mary. She is also
mentioned by name, more times in the Quran 34xthen the KJV Bible 19x.
Jesus is mentioned by name in the Quran 25x. Muhammad name is mentioned by name in the Quran only 4x.
A Prophet is Born
In her late teens Mary journeyed east into the wilderness to be alone. She set up a small tent and continued her studies. One day while she
was studying and praying, the Archangel Gabriel, also known as “The Holy Spirit,” came to her and announced: “O Mary! The Lord gives you glad tidings that you shall be blessed with the
Word. You will be given a son: his name will be the Messiah, Jesus. He will be noble in this world and in the Hereafter. He will be among those who are closest to God.”
The frightened girl gave the famous reply, “My Lord, how can I have a son when no man has touched me?!” The angel answered, “So it will be. The Lord creates what He wishes. He need only say, ‘Be’and it
Soon Mary became pregnant, and after the baby was born she returned to her people. When her relatives saw her returning after a year or more of
self-imposed exile, and carrying a baby as well, they became enraged and started accusing her of infidelity. They called her a loose woman and crowded her menacingly. Mary froze and could not find
the words to speak in her defense, so God caused the baby Jesus to speak. He told the relatives that he was a special miracle from God and would become a Prophet. The people retreated and left Mary
alone from then on.
Infusion with the Holy Spirit
Jesus performed many miracles, by the permission of
God, as a Sign for believers, other than his virgin birth and his declaration of his prophet hood as a newborn child in the cradle. In fact, these two miracles are sufficient to reveal the
extraordinary nature of Jesus. After all, only a miracle could make a new-born child speak so rationally and with faith:
Remember when God said: "‘Jesus, son of Mary, remember My blessing to You and to your mother when I reinforced you with the Holy
Spirit (Angel Gabriel) so that you could speak to people in the cradle and when you were fully grown; and when I taught you Book and Wisdom...." (5:110)
Other Miracles of Jesus
Jesus’ disciples even doubted him on one occasion and asked for a miracle to be performed in front of them.
They were hungry after many days of hard missionary work and asked Jesus to make a table full of food appear. Jesus complied with their wish, though he warned that anyone who disbelieved after that
would be hopelessly lost. Chapter 5 of the Quran—“The Table Spread”—takes its name
from this incident. There is no other Prophet that was given the ability to the many Miracles he did with the permission of God. From right after birth to when he was risen from God,
He shall preach to men in his cradle and in the prime of manhood, and shall lead a righteous life.3:46. "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot. Then she
pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle? He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah. He has given me the Book and has made me a Prophet. And has made me blessed
wheresoever I may be, and has enjoined upon me prayer and alms giving so long as I remain alive, And (has made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblessed. Peace on
me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive! Such was Jesus, son of Mary: (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.” Jesus did all
this before the age of 33, were as other prophets, started performing miracles in there 40's. Through out his life he was challenged, and performed many miracles from God to prove himself,
especially after just being born.
As a Messenger to the tribe of Israel, saying: "I have brought you a Sign from your Lord. I will create the shape of a bird out of clay for you and then breathe into it and it will be a
bird by God's permission. I will heal the blind and the leper, and bring the dead to life, by God's authority. I will tell you what you eat and what you store up in your homes. There is a Sign
for you if you are believers."(3:49)
Throughout his life, Jesus called his people to live by the religion revealed by God and reminded them to be true servants of God. He instructed them in
the commandments of the Injeel (The Gospel) – the revelation granted to him fragments of which may survive in parts of the Gospels. That book affirmed the commandments of the Torah – the revelation
granted to Moses some of which remains in the Torah and in the Old Testament – which had by then been corrupted. Criticizing the improper teachings of the rabbis who were responsible for the
degeneration of the true religion of Islam, Jesus abolished rules that were invented by the rabbis themselves and through which they derived personal gain. He summoned the Children of Israel to the
unity of God, to truthfulness, and to virtuousconduct.
Crucifixion or Cruci-Fiction
The Quran records that fierce opposition to Jesus came from the leaders of the Jewish community. They called him an impostor and contrived a plot against
him. After they succeeded in having him arrested, they tried to get him executed. God says in the Quran that Jesus was neither killed nor crucified, but “it was made to appear so to
them.” God wanted to fool them; He saved Jesus and took him to be in Heaven until the hour would come
to complete his mission in the end-times.
Who was crucified on that fateful day? The scholars say that the Caucasian Romans may have grabbed the disciple, Judas, who betrayed Jesus instead. Historians claim Jesus said, "Have not I chosen
you twelve; and one of you is a devil?" John 6:70
The two looked almost alike, and in the confusion they may have executed Judas instead. In any case, Islam says the method of deception is unimportant. What matters is that people thought that
Jesus died, when indeed he didn’t. Also according to the bible why did Jesus say "Eli
Eli Lama Sabuchtani"Oh God Oh God Why Have Though Forsaken Me? Matthew
27:45-46 God would not allow any of his Prophets, be tortured. God had always granted all Prophets wishes, because he loved them the most, and was closest too. Why would Jesus be any different? But
why was it meant to be perceived this way, I don't know.
If Jesus was the Son of God, why would the Father (God) allow this to happen, to his son? If you have children, you couldn't watch or let any harm
happen to them, you would save them, especially if you have the power to.
So that is why in the Quran God tells us and the world. Don't worry its ok, that never happened to Jesus, for I am God and wouldn't allow that to
happen to him. I made an escape plan and made someone else suffer. That's beautiful - that's a loving God who protects what his. What I don't understand is why this is so wrong for Christians to
believe. You would rather that Jesus was tortured, and beaten, possibly more then anyone else in history, and then to be crucified. To be humiliated, dehydrated, hungry, dramatic. Because that's
what crucifixion means. It its do die of an agonizing death that took usually three days. And all the while to have allowed, Judas to get away with the biggest conspiracy of all time.
Here in the Quran god said, listen I am telling you that never happened to the beloved Prophet Jesus Christ. Wouldn't this make you feel relieved? Why
the violence? If you need to think he sacrificed himself for your sins. Let me repeat that again, your sins. Then you can go on sinning forever. It doesn't make sense. It’s not
"That they said (in boast), ‘We killed Jesus Christ the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’ – But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so
it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not
Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is exalted in Power, Wise."
Where is it? What happened to it? You will read many different stories on the internet. A secret
society has it hidden in the Pyramids. There was a time it was lost and then found three hundred years later the original cross of Jesus was reportedly discovered in 326ADby Helena of Constantinople mother of Constantine,
but where is it now? It would be in some Museum or something sacred and wouldn’t be secret right...
Dr. Didron comments: "The cross has been the object of a worship and adoration, resembling if not equal to, that offered to Christ. That sacred tree is
adored almost as if it were equal with God himself". I couldn't agree more, look at what’s hanging on your necks, in your homes, when you make the sign with your hands and fingers, and as well
your churches. If someone was to take it away, the Christian world would panic, and say it was Armageddon.
Take a look at the film Kingdom of Heaven by Ridley Scott. Before the battle of Hattin in 1187 July 4th. The Christians brought the original Cross of
Christ to battle, believing it had some super power. If you had the Cross that Christ was crucified on, it would be like kryptonite, to the enemy. Christ could not; and would not allow any enemy to
win against any army who fought against the symbol of Christianity, and the actual Cross to which he died on, to win, right Christians? It makes sense for the Christians to carry it to say hey look
what we have beware and get ready. It would be like to bring the actual Ten Commandments to battle, who can fight against that?
Christians believed the power of the Cross which Christ was crucified on, was crucial to use, and bring, to fight against this enormous Muslim Army to
battle. The thinking process of the Pope and the King of Jerusalem, thought, The Cross was the only thing that would be capable to defeat the Muslims. This is very important, because prior to Salah
ah Din and his army, Christians never brought out the Cross.
Unfortunately the Christians were defeated in that battle against the over powered Muslims army of Salah ah din, and the cross was taken by the Muslims.
To the Muslims, the Cross meant nothing, because they knew the truth, according to the Quran. At the end of the movie in Kingdom of Heaven. King
Richard the 1stin 1191, went to defend the faith of Christians to regain the City of Peace (Jerusalem) from the Muslims, but failed.
In the journey towards Jerusalem, he won some small battles against the Muslims, and made many Muslims slaves and hostages, and mass murdered thousands,
to show Salah ah Din he was a force to reckon with. As a plea bargain for the hostages and salves. Salah al din, bargain for the release of the Muslims, for the Cross. King Richard the
1st, the Christian Leader of that time, sadly refused. You use your imagination what the
Muslims did with the so called Cross, tree, whatever you call it, did with it, because from then on - it has been lost forever. So you must know it was left in Muslim hands last.
Compilation of the Bible from the Gospel
After Jesus left the earth, some of his later followers started to corrupt the revelation. The message called the Injeel (Gospel) was never
written down. When the followers finally did get around to making a book of Scripture, they placed a selection of writings on a table and voted on what they thought should be included. This council
was held in 325 AD in Nicea, Greece. The group of writings the council included in their book, or “The New Testament” was the writings of Paul, who created Christianity. Also when the Idea of
Trinity was adopted in the New Testament, prior to this time it was never there. The word Trinity doesn't even exist in the Bible but it’s in the Quran.
Under the influence of some pagan ideas from the Greeks, they developed the belief in "the trinity" (the father, the son, and the Holy Ghost). Under the name of “Christianity,” they adhered to a
totally different religion than Islam.
In A.D. 303, a quarter of a century earlier, the pagan emperor Diocletian had undertaken to destroy all Christian writings that could be found. As a result Christian documents - especially in Rome
- all but vanished. When Constantine commissioned new versions of these documents, it enabled the custodians of orthodoxy to revise, edit, and rewrite their material as they saw fit, in accordance
with their tenets. They wrote them in Greek whereas the language of Jesus and his disciples was Aramaic, a language close to Arabic. It was at this point that most of the crucial alterations in the
New Testament were probably made. The importance of Constantine's commission must not be underestimated. Of the five thousand extant early manuscript versions of the New Testament, not one
predates the fourth century. The New Testament as it exists today is essentially a product of fourth-century editors and writers. Consequently, Christianity today has lost much of Jesus' original
teaching of Islam.
After Jesus, God sent another messenger from a different tribe in order that through him He could reveal the original religion to the world, and He endowed him with a noble book. This messenger is
the Prophet Muhammad and the book is the Quran, the only unaltered revelation.
The Second Coming of Jesus
At that point when the current appears to be very strong, the religion of true Islam, which comprises the collective personality of Jesus,
will emerge. That is, it will descend from the skies of Divine Mercy. Present Christianity will be purified in the face of that reality; it will cast off superstition and
distortion, and unite with the truths of Islam. The true religion will become a mighty force as a result of its joining it. Then the person of Jesus, who is present with his human body in the world
of the heavens, will come to lead the current of the true religion relying on the promise of God.
It will be the truly pious followers of Jesus who will kill the gigantic collective personality of materialism and nonreligious which the Anti-Christ (Dajjal) will form — for the Anti-Christ will
be killed by just seeing Jesus - this sounds kinda “Lord of the Rings”, but that’s what was left to us to know. The Anti-Christ will do its best to start its fellowship, and will be destroyed just
like in the movie Lord of the Rings by just making eye contact with Jesus. Jesus will then destroy his ideas and disbelief, which are atheistic. The narration: "Jesus will come and will perform the
obligatory prayers behind the Mahdi and follow him," alludes to this union, and to the sovereignty of the Quran and its being followed. Jesus will assume leadership in spreading the final
manifestation of the law (the Quran) and its teachings
The second coming of Jesus will be a major sign that the end of the world and the judgment of God is imminent. Jesus will live the rest of his life on earth, get married, have children, die and be
buried next to Muhammad in Medina, Saudi Arabia. So in respect to Christians, we Muslims are
waiting for the Prophet Jesus as well, again for different reasons and different endings. For us he’s alive and well. You need to understand this very well. We are waiting for him too. Where is he?
He is in the second heaven of five, with his cousin, another Prophet John the Baptist. Waiting for the hour to return back to Earth. He is the only human being in the flesh who is in
Heaven.He is still at the age of 33 when he was raised 2 thousand + years ago, and its to his example that, everyone who goes to Heaven, will be
turn back or added up to the same age of 33. Interesting eh. So if your child who died at birth or at 5 will be 33 in Heaven. If you die at 100 or 66, you too will be 33, as for the First human in
the Flesh who's there now - Jesus is 33.
Unitarian View of Pure Monotheism
The foolish notion that God would ever allow Himself, even if it were possible, to be pounced on and humiliated, let alone crucified in order
to satisfy man's perverse narcissism, is folly raised to its highest power. This morbid love of self is one of the main causes of man's continuing addiction to the wanting to become equal with
In setting the record straight regarding the nature of Jesus and Mary, God proclaims, in the later part of the 5th Chapter, that they both ate food like
other mortals. God also says Jesus “never felt too proud to be God’s servant.” (4:172)
God compares the creation of Jesus to that of Adam. The best creation God ever made. The first human. Who had no father and no mother. Jesus was created without a father, but at least he had a
mother. Adam and Eve were created without either. “Truly the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust and then said to him ‘Be!’ and he
On Judgment Day, Jesus will say to God about the Christians, “I never said anything to them except what You commanded me to. Namely, ‘To serve God, my Lord and your Lord.’” Quran 5 117-120 for this
reason Muslims are mutually more closely related to Jesus than Christians are.
Look into your own KJV Bible Matthew Ch 22 V 22 & 23
According to the Quran (Chapter 4) certain Jews, as well as Christians, falter in their faith
primarily because of their selective way of thinking; they accept some of the prophets as true and deny the prophet hood of others.
I apologize if this e-book was rude in anyway to Christians or Jews; it’s an informative e-book for people to use their ability to reason. Muslims are to respect and become friends with
Christians and Jews for all three religions start with the same history although end differently. I just want you to do your own research of your faith not because you have to believe everything
your Priest saids.
It was a Christian King of Abyssinia who saved the Muslims when the Muslims were just a handful. Muslim men can marry Christian/Jewish women just as
the Prophet had married two Jewish wives, including myself. I am married to a Catholic, from the Philippines. The Prophet Muhammad married; Safiyyah was the daughter of Huyayy ibn Akhtab, the
undisputed leader of the Banu al-Nadir as well as a Jewish Rabbi. Also Rayhana bint Amr ibn Khunafa was a Jewishwoman from the Banu Qurayza tribe.
“You will find that the closest to you in love are those who call themselves Christians
because there are priests and monks among them who do not behave arrogantly.” (5:82)
People of the Book
The purpose of Islam is to call people away from the worship of creation and to direct them
toward the worship of The Creator alone. This is where Islam differs from other religions. Although most religions teach that there is a creator who created all that exists, they are rarely free of
some form of polytheism (idolatry) with respect to worship.
Most people have a tendency to focus their devotion on something they can visualize, something imaginable, even though they have an instinctive knowledge that The Creator of the universe
is far greater than their imaginations.
God says that the religion is one religion to God, Islam. Meaning that Islam is not a religion brought by Muhammad unprecedented, what the Prophet did, was to bring the "final" version of it to
people. So Jesus was a Muslim and Moses a Muslim too. Being in the right religion in any time is equivalent to be a Muslim.
Muslims must believe in all Divine scriptures in their original form, their Prophets and making no distinction between them: The Suhuf (Abraham); Torah (Moses); Psalms (David);
Gospel (Jesus); and the Koran (Muhammad). However, none of these scriptures remains in its original form now, except the Koran, which was sent for all mankind everywhere and for all times.
Given the fact that there has never been in the history of the Torah (Old Testament) the religion of God to be named after a Prophet (i.e. Adaminity,
Abrahamity, Mosanity, Muhammadens, etc.), I hope to explain that Jesus did not preach the religion of Christianity, but a religion that gives all Praise and Worship to The One God, Islam.
Muslims sincerely believe that everything Jesus preached was from God; the Gospel (Injeel): The "good news" and the guidance of God for the Children of Israel. There is no place mentioned in the
present four Gospels that Jesus wrote a single word of his Gospel, nor is it mentioned that Jesus instructed anyone to do so. What passes off, as the "Gospels" today are the works of third party
"And woe to those who write the book with their own hands and they say: "This is from God." To traffic with it for a miserable price!"
The Message Of Jesus
God says to Mary: “Your son is my responsibility. I will teach him the Scripture, the Torah, the Gospel and the Wisdom, and he shall be my
messenger.' He would be, Mary was assured, ‘a sign to humanity and a token of my mercy.'”
Jesus called for disciples to follow him. He recruited a dedicated cadre of people who assisted him in his mission. The immediate effect was that many new converts to Jesus’ way of Islam were
Jesus predicted the coming of Muhammad. The New Testament of the Bible quotes Jesus as saying the “Comforter” will come after him and will guide people into all truth. The Quran calls
itself the completion of all religion.Jesus could not have been referring to the Holy Spirit because according to the Bible, the Spirit
was already at work in the world. A thorough reading of John 16:7-14 provides strong indications that a man is being referenced, not the Holy Spirit.
God says no prophets are to come after Muhammad (33:40) and that when Jesus comes again, he will not be in a prophetic role, but simply a follower.
In addition to other reasons why the Koran was sent to mankind, as mentioned in (18:4-5) it was sent to warn the Christians of a terrible punishment from God if they cease not in saying: "Allah
has begotten a son."
Just so you know Muslim doesn’t mean Arab or Islam. It means one who submits to the One Lord, Creator of all things, God, Allah!. That’s
why Jesus is a Muslim, he obviously submitted to the one true Lord, as well all the Prophets. I leave you with this last assignment that takes 1 minute. Jesus spoke Aramaic, Google how to say God
"O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Jesus Christ the son of Mary was (no more than)
a Messenger of Allah, And His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not ‘Trinity’: desist: it will be better for you: for
Allah is One God: glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."
“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you” John (20:21)
