Islam means "submission to God in peace". Islam teaches there is only One God, whose primary name is "Allah" in the Arabic language. Islam is the same essential message given to all the prophets, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and finally to the Last Prophet, Muhammad, (peace be upon them all). They all proclaimed the same basic Divine message: worship only God, stop worshipping human beings and other created things There's a different between Islam and Muslims!! What's the purpose of life? What Do You Know About Islam? Not what you have heard about Islam, not what you have seen in the actions of some Muslims, but what do you really know about Islam?

Jesus (peace be upon him) admits in the Gospel that he is a human being and not a god:

Jesus (peace be upon him) admits in the Gospel that he is a human being and not a god:

Jesus (peace be upon him) did not claim that he was Allah or the son of Allah in reality, nor did he claim that he was equal to Allah as you allege, for he used to supplicate Allah and thank him, saying: “Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.”[1] So, Jesus appealed to Allah to grant him the miracle of bringing the dead to life and then thanked him for fulfilling his request.[2]

1. We hear the sister of Ezra say to Jesus (peace be upon him): “But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.”[3] Jesus (peace be upon him) asks Allah (SWT) for miracles, and he even asks for safety for himself. The night he and his disciples were attacked by the soldiers, he said: “Father, save me from this hour.”[4]

2. Jesus (peace be upon him) does not abstain from admitting disability and that the miracles he does are not by his power by the Power of Allah. He says: “I can of mine own self do nothing.”[5]

3. How do you worship him while he himself worships Allah and prays to him: “continued all night in prayer to God.”[6] So, he worships Allah. If he was Allah, to whom was he praying then?

4. You also ask Jesus for everything. You seek from him safety, mercy, forgiveness, etc. while he could not save himself from the Jews when they arrested and crucified him, as you allege, but he shouted loudly appealing to Allah to rescue him from the Jews, saying: “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”[7] Why then do you ask him for whatever you desire while he himself cannot do it. Do you not know that one cannot give what one does not have? This is a rule accepted by all reasonable people. You would not find a reasonable person go to one who does not know reading and writing to teach you these skills, nor would you find someone who seeks financial aid from the poor. How can you then ask Jesus for anything and he has told you he can of his own self do nothing, and that he is no more than a Prophet sent by Allah, as mentioned in the Gospel?
