Greetings, I dearly want you to know the following:
In Islam, Jesus is one of the mightiest messengers of God; no Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus, if he does not believe that Jesus was born miraculously, if he does not believe that Jesus gave life to the dead, healed the blind, and the lepers by God's permission. In the Quran, the name "Jesus" appears 25 times (while Muhammad only 5) and the name "Mary" appears 31 times, (while Muhammad's wives nor daughters names are mentioned) additionally, there is a whole chapter entitled "Mary" in the Quran in the honor of the mother of Jesus. Islam obligates its followers to believe that Mary was a woman chosen above the women of all nation;
Al-Quran 3:42 > "And [mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds."
Also the Quran describes the birth of Jesus in several places, such as;
Al-Quran 3:45-48> "[And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].
He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous." She said, "My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is Allah ; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is. And He will teach him writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel"
In Islam, it is believed that Jesus was neither crucified nor killed, and the Bible also emphasizes that; After three days of Jesus's alleged crucifixion he goes to his disciples in the upper room and wishes them peace by saying "Peace be with you";
Luke 24:36> "And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you."
Luke 24:37 states that his disciples were terrified, but why?
Luke writes that they thought they saw a ghost, but did Jesus look like a ghost, a spirit, or a spook? No. But why did they think he is one while he did not look like one?
The Disciples of Jesus did not witness the crucifixion, all their information was from hearsay, Mark states that in the most critical juncture of the life of Jesus, all his disciples forsook him and fled;
Mark 14:5> "Then everyone deserted him and fled."
Jesus asks them:
Luke 24:38> "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?"
Then he asks them to touch his hands and feet so they are assured that he is the same alive master of them;
Luke 24:39> "Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have."
Jesus explicitly states that he has flesh and bones unlike the resurrected which are spirits. Paul states that once man dies, he will be raised as a spirit:
1 Corinthians 15:44> "It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body."
Any spirit has no flesh and bones Jesus tells his disciples. So they touched his hands and feet and were tremendously happy:
Luke 24:40> "When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement."
Then he conforms them by asking for food, telling them that he is not a spirit nor a spoke because spirits can not eat and can not have flesh and bones;
Luke 24:41> "And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?"
Luke 24:42-43> "And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them.";
In the Quran, Allah (God) states that Jesus (peace be upon him) told that there is another prophet coming after him, which also the Bible emphasizes that;
John 16:12-14> "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when HE, spirit of truth, is come, HE will guide you into all truth: for HE shall not speak of HIMSELF; but whatsoever HE shall hear, that shall HE speak: and HE will shew you things to come. HE shall glorify me: for HE shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you."
Jesus (peace be upon him) had the message: the solutions to the problems of humanity, but, he did not have the time nor the fit people. Throughout the New Testament Jesus addresses his disciples as of little faith, and would explain things to them as he is explaining for children;
Matthew 16:8> "Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked, "Ye of little faith, why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread?"
Matthew 8:26> "He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm."
Matthew 6:30> "If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you--you of little faith?"
However, the spirit of truth will guide unto all truth. According to John, a true spirit is a true prophet and a false spirit is a false prophet, and the spirit that confess that Jesus is come in the flesh is of God;
1 John 4:1-2> "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God"
Islam affirms that Jesus and his mother were both in flesh and ate food;
Al-Quran 5:75> "The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded"
This Spirit of Truth shall guide humanity unto all truth and glorify Jesus. The Holy Ghost is not the candidate of this prophecy because in 2000 years, it did not give any new solution to the problems of the world such as racism; alcoholism; rape; adultery; surplus women; murder; etc..
Additionally, the Holy Ghost cannot be the candidate because in the same chapter Jesus said that if he does not go away, the comforter will not come, however, the Holy Ghost have been long before Jesus (Such as with Elizabeth and John the Baptist);
John 16:7> "But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you"
Islam is the only religion on Earth that makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus and his mother. It has the solutions to all the problems (it may not be accepted by everyone, but it solves the problems), for example: robbery
In Islam, robbery is punished by cutting down the hand, harsh and barbaric, isn't it? But when viewing the psychology behind the punishment, it is very effective: The Muslim grows up with his parents telling him "Our son, if you steal, your hand is going to be chopped off" Apply this to any human, fear and terror will always thrive in him when thinking of robbery; because his hands will be gone, so he does not proceed.
These are some informative videos about this topic;
"Submitting to God's will" is the meaning of Islam (not 'a follower of Muhammad'), and it was the religion of all prophets. All prophets are to be believed of and respected but not worshiped. Islam is based on five pillars: The Testimony of Faith, Prayer, Giving Zakat (support of the poor/needy), Fasting during the month of Ramadan, and the Pilgrimage to Makkah [Mecca] once in a lifetime for those who are able.
Please, if you care to search about Islam, or even have a question, ask me. Not all information on the web is true. People try to vandalize Islam and equate it with terrorism, which is not true.
Dear Islam Believer,
Thanks. I appreciate your desire to honor the names of Jesus and Mary.
There are two separate issues to consider in reply to your email. One is the issue of Christian beliefs versus Islamic beliefs and the second is the issue of the demonization of Muslims and the denigration of Islam currently underway with some web sites, some Youtube channels, and some radio stations.
I am opposed to Islam bashing and Muslim demonization. It's a planned propaganda campaign orchestrated by Zionists to create animosity between mostly Protestant fundamentalists and devout Muslims. I'll expand on this more further below.
I am also opposed, however, to the concept of trying to convince people of different cultural backgrounds and different religions that your religious convictions are superior to the other guy, as Shaikh Ahmed Deedat attempts to do in the first 2.5 hour long video link you sent. He's a very convincing speaker and has memorized a great deal of material from the Bible and the Koran which makes him sound very knowledgeable, but his objective in this type of conversation is not enlightened.
At a time when Zionists are trying to generate ill feelings towards Muslims, it's not wise to try and persuade westerners, who are overwhelmingly Christian in orientation, that Christ was never crucified or that the Trinity doesn't exist. It's better to limit the conversation to concepts of righteous behavior and brotherly love in order to engender feelings of good will, understanding and mutual respect.
I don't necessarily concur with all of the views you've expressed here, but I see no evil intent, threat, or hostility towards non Muslims. You have a right to your own beliefs. The Islam bashing is propaganda theater being orchestrated by Zionists to foment anti-Muslim hysteria among Americans and Western Europeans. The divide and conquer technique of fomenting East-West religion hatred as a means of undermining and favorably manipulating the non Jewish Goyim is explained in the teachings of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, which is employed and followed by Zionist propaganda producers down to the smallest detail.
Anyone who's read the Koran knows that it is not a book of sinister teachings as the Zionists would have us believe. While there are many ill informed British Israel Christian fundamentalists who buy into Islamophobia without any real understanding of Islam, many traditional Protestant sects, or Eastern Orthodox churches or Roman Catholics do not buy into anti-Muslim hysteria and generally have no animosity or fear towards Muslim people or the religion of Islam.
Intelligent and rational people realize that web sites and Youtube channels which routinely chant the Islamophobia meme are either Zionists or Zionist shills or easily swayed fundamentalist dupes. Very often, the same Youtube channels which promote Islam bashing, also promote Vatican/Pope/Jesuit/Catholic bashing with equal relish, indicating that Talmudic Jews are the hidden hand behind BOTH slander campaigns.(see http://educate-yourself.org/cn/Fallacies-of-the-Jesuit-Conspiracy-Theory03feb15.shtml)
Zionist Israel wants America to initiate war against Iran so they can consolidate their Greater Israel takeover agenda, so naturally they have to demonize Muslims so us stupid American Goyim will (once again) do the fighting for them and use OUR money and lose the lives or OUR military personnel to help them become the dominant power holder in the Middle East. But I don't think we're going to go down that road again.
I believe the majority of Americans who support Trump are not persuaded by anti-Muslim rhetoric, nor do they want to go to war against Iran or Syria for Israel. Despite all the Iran tough talk, I don't believe that Trump will go to war to please Israel. While Netanyahu may think that he has Trump in his back pocket, Trump may be playing Netanyahu more that Bibi realizes. Just because high profile Trump supporters like Alex Jones or Paul Joseph Watson are singing Islamophobia arias in nearly every show they do, it doesn't mean that everyone who listens to the Alex Jones Show goes along with everything they say. Have more faith in the common sense and intelligence of the average American citizen.
