Good evening everyone. My name is Ryan, Moses, a Christian by faith, and I am a student of engineering. My question, sir is, according to Islam, both Jesus and Muhammad were prophets. But Prophet Isa, besides his miracles, had an unnatural birth and never died, according to Islam. Besides, he has a prominent role to play in the day of judgment against the gel. Don't you think this special preference given to him by Allah makes him more than just a prophet

00:00:40--> 00:01:04

brotherband with us to very good questions. He said that Islam believes that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, and Muhammad peace be upon him. Both of them are prophets of God. But when you compare their lives, we realize that Jesus Christ please be a peninsula Salam had unnatural birth, meaning that he was born miraculously, without any human intervention.

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

And he did not die. So don't these two qualities

00:01:12--> 00:01:48

make him superior? to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? Before I reply to your question, I would like to make it very clear that Islam is the only non Christian faith which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus Christ peace be upon him. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. We believe that he was the Messiah, translated to Christ, we believe that he was born miraculously without any human intervention. We believe that he gave life to the dead which got permission. We believe that he is those born blind lepers has got permission.

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

The Christians, the Muslims, we are going together.

00:01:55--> 00:02:17

But there is parting of ways. The Parting of ways is that many of the Christians they claim and they think that Jesus Christ peace be upon him. He claimed divinity, and he was Almighty God. First reply to these queries, that if Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, was born miraculously,

00:02:18--> 00:02:47

he had a mother, but had no father, so doesn't make him superior to Prophet moment indicating that doesn't mean is God. If you say that Jesus is superior, or you claim to be God, because he was one miraculously, he had no father. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three, most of them are 59. Allah says in the masala Isa in the Lake omnicell, Adam Palak woman, Rob

00:02:48--> 00:03:11

Kuhn, the similitude of Jesus peace be upon him, in front of Allah subhana wa Taala is the same as Adam peace be upon him. He was made from dust. And Allah said be any was, if you say that Jesus is God because he had no father, in that context, according to the Quran, and according to your Bible, Adam, peace be upon him and no mother and father that makes him a greater God.

00:03:16--> 00:03:34

Nowhere Does the Bible nowhere does Allah say, in the Quran, that because a person has no father he becomes Almighty God. Allah is the best to create, he wanted to show people his power. Normally a human being is born with a father and mother. He had an example of other minister Lamb

00:03:35--> 00:04:01

who was born without a father and mother. We have the example of we have an email Allah be pleased with her who was born without any female. The last example pending was a person being born without a father which he fulfilled in the birth of Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, coming to your second query that we Muslims believe. And even the Bible says that Jesus Christ please before him did not die.

00:04:03--> 00:04:47

Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa chapter four verse number 157 158, Allah says that he was not killed Linda was the crucified, but Allah raised him unto himself. So the question is, that if Jesus did not die, he is alive? Is India greater profit than Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? The reply brother is that he sadly Salaam Jesus Christ peace be upon him was the only messenger of Allah subhana wa Taala, whose followers mistook him that he claimed divinity, there is not a single prophet of Allah subhanaw taala of Almighty God, whose followers mistook that he claimed divinity, because he was the only Prophet whose followers mistook that he claimed he was God. Allah subhana wa

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Taala reeled him up alive, so that in his second coming, he could testify to these people that he never claimed divinity that for the law says in the Quran in surah, Maya chapter number five was the 116 that any second coming

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

He will tell his Allah Spano tala, that you be my witness, and never told them to worship me, but all them with Allah worship Allah, Robbie, who's my Lord and your Lord, the same thing is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew that in his second coming when people will say, oh, Master, oh Master, did we not do wonders and miracles in your name, he will say, even men, I don't even know you, you depart from you. So Allah subhanaw taala Almighty God has raised up Jesus Christ, please be open alive, because in the Second Coming, he will not give any new message. Because Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the last and final messenger which is mentioned in the Quran in surah, Chapter

00:05:36--> 00:06:19

30, verse number 40, after him and after the Quran was revealed, nothing new can be added or subtracted from the religion of Islam. He will come as Alma Thomas Allah Allah, He will come not to give any new teaching, just to testify to the followers, that he never claimed divinity and he is a messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. So the major difference between the Muslims and the Christians is that most of the Christians think that Jesus Christ peace be upon him claim divinity. In fact, if you read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. In the complete Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself says that I am God away if you worship me. If any Christian can

00:06:19--> 00:06:35

point out a single verse in the Bible, a single unequivocal statement with Jesus Christ please be upon himself says, a single unambiguous statement with Jesus Christ, please bear for himself says that I am God always worship me. I am ready to accept Christianity just now.

00:06:37--> 00:07:10

I'm not speaking on behalf of my other Muslim brothers. I'm putting my hand on the guillotine. In fact, if you read the Bible, Jesus Christ, please bear for himself said it's mentioned the gospel of john chapter number 14 was number 28. Jesus Christ peace be upon him said My father is greater than I, gospel of john chapter number 10, was the majority name My father is greater than all Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, was number 20. I cast out devil with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke chapter 11, verse number 20, I with the finger of God cast out devils gospel of john chapter number five, verse number 30, I can have my own self to nothing.

00:07:11--> 00:07:52

Either you're a judge, and my judgment is just for I think, not my will, but the will of my Father, anyone who say that? Not my will, but the will of Almighty God is a Muslim. So Bible says, Jesus Christ peace be upon him as a Muslim. He never claimed divinity. And it's clearly mentioned the book of Acts, chapter number two, was committed to a man of Israel. Listen to this, Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you by wonders and miracles and signs which God did by him and you have it destroyed. A man approved of God amongst you buy wonders and miracles and signs which God did by him and you're destroyed. So Jesus Christ, peace be upon him divinity, but he was one of the

00:07:52--> 00:08:16

mightiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. So brother, are you convinced that Jesus is not God? I did not say Jesus is God. I did not it was his position. According to his I never said that. You said Jesus was God. I'm asking you a question. Are you convinced that Jesus is not God? Yes, I'm convinced of that. But I'm want to clarify his position in Islam.

00:08:18--> 00:08:28

Before I answer, didn't I tell you he believed that he was one of the mightiest messengers of God. No Muslim is a Muslim. If he does not believe in Jesus guys, peace be upon him.

00:08:29--> 00:08:37

A Muslim cannot be a Muslim. If he doesn't believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messenger of God, but he was not God.

00:08:38--> 00:09:12

So do you believe Jesus Christ peace be upon him? Is not God? Yes. Do you believe Prophet Muhammad, the Messenger of God. I believe that Jesus Christ being a prophet was more than a prophet that doesn't make him God, but his position is unknown. What is his exact position? He is more than a prophet, but not God. But what is his position? He is a prophet of God is a messenger. But he doesn't qualify to be a prophet, because he has done like unnatural birth, unnatural death, and again, Day of Judgment coming bribery.

00:09:13--> 00:09:23

If you claim that he is somewhere more than a prophet because he was unnatural, born he was born without a father, then Adam peace be upon him becomes a bigger

00:09:25--> 00:09:40

Adam had a death, natural death. But Adam there was no misconception amongst the followers of Adam peace be upon him that he claimed divinity. There's a misconception amongst the followers of Christians that they claim that he was God, that the reason Allah keep him alive.

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

And Jesus guys peace be upon him said, it's mentioned in the Gospel of john chapter number 16 was the wood relative 14, I have many things to send to you, but he cannot buy them now. For even the spirit of two shall come, he shall guide you and also he shall not speak of himself. All the do shall he speak. He said, notify me. Now this prophecy refers to

00:10:00--> 00:10:23

No one but Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So if you're a good Christian, if you're a person who believes in Jesus Guys, please be upon him. If you believe in his teachings, then you also have to believe that there's someone else to come, who shall guide you. And that is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So that is the reason I'm saying that if you're a true believer in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. You have to believe in Prophet Muhammad Salah salam, otherwise you know not true believer.

00:10:26--> 00:10:33

So are you a believer in Prophet Jesus? Yes. Do you believe in gospel of john chapter 16 verse number 12 to 14

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

he's talking about Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him to come.

00:10:38--> 00:10:53

So do you believe in prophet moments will be upon him? I can't comment right now. So I request you to do more research. Okay. I will own your Bible. And you can see my video cassette similarities between Islam and Christianity. Yes. Thank you.
