    Who truely loves Jesus PBUH-Christians or Muslims?

    Report bad ads?

    I would like to begin with a question…. “Do You Love Jesus peace be upon him”???

    I am not surprised that you would say yes. But I want to go a bit farther and really examine this subject:

    1. Do you appear to be like Jesus
      peace be upon him
      ?

    2. Are your manners like that of Jesus
      peace be upon him
      ?

    3. How about religious practices, do they look like what Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      practiced?
    4. Do you worship God in the way Jesus (
      peace be upon him)
      did?
    5. Finally do you worship the same God, Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      worshipped?



    I bet you that if you are a Christian then your previous answer which was "Yes" is now more like a "No." If you are a Muslim then your answer is a very big YES. If you love Jesus
    (peace be upon him)
    then only religion who truly practice the teachings of Jesus
    (peace be upon him)
    is Islam.
    Muslims believe in what Jesus taught and we don't just believe but we also put that into practice.

    Now, that assertion requires an explanation, and it goes like this: To begin with, both Christianity and Islam consider Jesus
    (peace be upon him)
    to have been a prophet of their religion. However, whereas Jesus’
    (peace be upon him)
    teachings have been lost from the creed and practices of most Christians, these same teachings are respected and evident in Islam. Let us look at some examples:

    Appearance
    1. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      was bearded, as are most Muslims, but only the rare Christian.
    2. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      dressed modestly. If we close our eyes and form a mental picture, we see flowing robes, from wrists to ankles—much like the loose Arabian thobes and the Indio-Pakistani shalwar kameez, typical of the Muslims of those areas. What we don’t imagine is the revealing or seductive clothing so ubiquitous in Christian cultures.
    3. Jesus’
      (peace be upon him)
      mother covered her hair, and this practice was maintained among the Christian women of the Holy Land up to the middle of the twentieth century. Again, this is a practice maintained among Muslims as well as Orthodox Jews (of which Jesus was one), but not among modern day Christians.


    Manners

    1. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      focused upon salvation and eschewed finery. How many “righteous” Christians fit this “It’s not just on Sundays” profile? Now how many “five prayers a day, every day of the year” Muslims?
    2. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      spoke with humility and kindness. He didn’t “showboat.” When we think of his speeches, we don’t imagine theatrics. He was a simple man known for quality and truth. How many preachers and how many evangelists follow this example? Just look at your own language you have been using and compare that to Jesus's teachings. You can compare mine as well if you like to. I try my best to stay away from foul language.
    3. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      taught his disciples to offer the greeting of “Peace” (Luke 10:5), and then set the example: “Peace be with you” (Luke 24:36, John 20:19, John 20:21, John 20:26). Who continues this practice to this day, Christians or Muslims? “Peace be with you” is the meaning of the Muslim greeting, “Assalam alaikum.” Interestingly enough, we find this greeting in Judaism as well (Genesis 43:23, Numbers 6:26, Judges 6:23, I Samuel 1:17 and I Samuel 25:6).


    Religious Practices
    1. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      was circumcised (Luke 2:21). Paul taught it wasn’t necessary (Rom 4:11 and Gal 5:2). Muslims believe it is.
    2. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      didn’t eat pork, in keeping with Old Testament law (Leviticus 11:7 and Deuteronomy 14:8). Muslims also believe pork is forbidden. Christians … well, you get the idea.
    3. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      didn’t give or take usury, in compliance with the Old Testament prohibition (Exodus 22:25). Usury is forbidden in the Old Testament and the Quran, as it was forbidden in the religion of Jesus. The economies of most Christian countries, however, are structured upon usury.
    4. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      didn’t fornicate, and abstained from extramarital contact with women. Now, this issue extends to the least physical contact with the opposite sex. With the exception of performing religious rituals and helping those in need, Jesus never even touched a woman other than his mother. Strictly practicing Orthodox Jews maintain this practice to this day in observance of Old Testament law. Likewise, practicing Muslims don’t even shake hands between the sexes. Can Christian “hug your neighbor” and “kiss the bride” congregations make the same claim?


    Practices of Worship

    1. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      purified himself with washing prior to prayer, as was the practice of the pious prophets who preceded him (see Exodus 40:31-32 in reference to Moses and Aaron), and as is the practice of Muslims.
    2. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      prayed in prostration (Matthew 26:39), like the other prophets (see Nehemiah 8:6 with regard to Ezra and the people, Joshua 5:14 for Joshua, Genesis 17:3 and 24:52 for Abraham, Exodus 34:8 and Numbers 20:6 for Moses and Aaron). Who prays like that, Christians or Muslims?
    3. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      fasted for more than a month at a time (Matthew 4:2 and Luke 4:2), as did the pious before him (Exodus 34:28, I Kings 19:8), and as do Muslims in the annual fast of the month of Ramadan.
    4. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      made pilgrimage for the purpose of worship, as all Orthodox Jews aspire to do. The Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca is well known, and is alluded to in the Bible (see The First and Final Commandment).


    Matters of Creed

    1. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      taught the oneness of God (Mark 12:29-30, Matthew 22:37 and Luke 10:27), as conveyed in the first commandment (Exodus 20:3). Nowhere did he declare the Trinity.
    2. Jesus
      (peace be upon him)
      declared himself a man and a prophet of God (see above), and nowhere claimed divinity or divine sonship. Which creed are the above points more consistent with—the Trinitarian formula or the absolute monotheism of Islam?


    The least you can do is at least respect the fact that Muslims exemplify Jesus’ teachings more than Christians do.

    Furthermore, we should remember that the Old Testament foretold three prophets to follow. John the Baptist
    (peace be upon him)
    and Jesus Christ
    (peace be upon him)
    were numbers one and two, and Jesus Christ
    (peace be upon him)
    himself predicted the third and last. Hence, both Old and New Testaments speak of a final prophet, and we would be amiss if we didn’t consider that final prophet to be Muhammad
    (peace be upon him)
    , and the final revelation to be that of Islam.
