On Resurrection Day our newspaper featured on its front page, "What is Islam?" However, in my view, an article should have appeared entitled "Jesus Christ and Muhammad - a contrast?" Why do I say this? ...

"• Jesus ... does many miracles. Muhammad did no recorded miracles.

• Jesus is the giver of life. Muhammad was the taker of life.

• Jesus ... takes away the sins of the world. Muhammad led people into sin.

• Jesus preaches faith. Muhammad practiced force ...

jesus of nazareth knew what was going on in his life, his crucifixion, resurrection and his messages - but muslim isa depends on mofreak and his muslims to give him some sign of life. if this should upset the muslims they are free to shed some light on the life of muslim isa who gave rise to ISLAM.

Christianity has that Great Living Rock in whom there is Light and Life - Jesus Christ

Islam has that dark black stone in which there is neither light nor life - The Kaaba stone

Jesus was born of a Virgin.

Muhammad was not born of a Virgin.

Jesus birth was announced by an Angel of God.

Muhammad's birth was not announced by an Angel of God.

Jesus ministry was announced by the Prophet John the baptist.

Muhammad had no prophet announce him.

Jesus proved the Great Love of God

Muhammad did not prove The Great love of God

Jesus is the First born of Creation.

Muhammad is not the First Born of Creation.

Jesus was The King of the Jews, and was visited by Kings, and is the King of Heaven.

Muhammmad is not a King.

Jesus is Alive.

Muhammad is dead.

Long live the King!

what a weird page full of weird comments is that? The commentors do not have an idea of Islam as well... Hmmm, the western people are playing in a theathre where they write their own text, a specially for western people designed world reality :) Far from being reality ...

I am not one for indulging in "my religion is better than yours". You all have a right to your beliefs as I have to mine. The best of advice for me and you comes from God himself.
------
2:135 (Asad) AND THEY say, "Be Jews" - or, "christians" - "and you shall be on the right path." Say: "Nay, but [ours is] the creed of Abraham, who turned away from all that is false, and was not of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside God."

5:18 (Asad) And [both] the Jews and the christians say, "We are God's children, and His beloved ones." Say: "Why, then, does He cause you to suffer for your sins? Nay, you are but human beings of His creating. He forgives whom He wills, and He causes to suffer whom He wills: for God's is the dominion over the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, and with Him is all journeys' end."

57:29 (Asad) And the followers of earlier revelation should know that they have no power whatever over any of God’s bounty, seeing that all bounty is in God’s hand [alone]: He grants it unto whomever He wills - for God is limitless in His great bounty.
------
For Christians, Jews and Muslims - peace be upon you.

Please comment and write more about what you think. I find this very interesting.

Let us dissect some of these unsubstantiated stuff point by point:
Jesus is God-Man, the son of God, and the rod of God made flesh. Muhammad was only a mere man.
That Jesus is God-Man and God in flesh, is totally absurd. There is no proof available. Jesus never taught that.

It is true that Muhammad was just a man and so was Jesus, nothing more.
Jesus, out of his love and compassion for his created beings, does many miracles. Muhammad did no recorded miracles.
It is true that Muhammad did not show any miracles like Jesus did.

Muhammad made fierce Godless pagans believe in the One LORD Almighty God, without the help of any miracles.

He argued with the help of Qur'aan and reasoned with people, who accepted him as Prophet of the LORD Almighty and they believed in the LORD Almighty.

Jesus, on the other hand showed a few miracles, using the power of God working behind him and yet failed to impress the monotheistic Jews and they did not accept him as a prophet or messiah.

Thus all the miracles shown turned useless. What good were those shown miracles, when the man was not accepted?
Jesus is the giver of life. Muhammad was the taker of life.
The above is incorrect. Raising one or two people does not mean he was a life giver. If Jesus were the giver of life, death should have been overcome and removed so all could have lived.
Jesus, as the lamb of God, takes away the sins of the world. Muhammad led people into sin.
There is no such animal known as the lamb of God. The lamb of God in ancient and oriental languages, simply means a noble and a good man. Muhammad taught people to stay away from sin, while Jesus gave them a free license to sin. lol!
Jesus preaches faith. Muhammad practiced force.
Faith and belief in the On eLORD Almighty was already there before the arrival of Jesus. People believed in God and had full faith in God. Jesus brought nothing new.

Muhammad did not force anybody. This is a misinformation provided by polemic Christians.
Jesus said he is the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father (God) but by him. Muhammad did not promise Heaven to his followers.
Yes, Jesus did say that but he DID NOT really show any way. Philip was not impressed at all.

Yes, Muhammad promised Heaven to his followers, who believed in the LORD Almighty.
Jesus answers prayers. Neither Muhammad, nor the black stone idol in Mecca can answer prayers.
Neither Jesus nor Muhammad can answer prayers. Both prayed to God. Those who prayed to God, cannot answer anybody's prayers. Only God can answer.
Jesus, by his resurrection, is alive forevermore. He lives eternally and as believers in him, we can do the same. Muhammad was not resurrected from the dead.
Jesus and Muhammad are both dead. Muhammad's grave is in Medina and Jesus remains buried in some unknown and unmarked grave in the region, he lived.

Resurrection is a hoax as nobody saw Jesus rising or being resurrected. There is no solid proof, so we can discard Jesus' alleged resurrection.

Both of them will only be resurrected on the Last Day.
Jesus’ tomb is empty. Muhammad’s tomb is occupied.
Of course, the tomb is empty because he was not permanently buried there.

To fear the LORD is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech

I believe that the spirit or angel that delivered the holy Quran to Muhammad was a false spirit, or the devil. In the holy bible, we can read about this. In 1 john, chapter 4, verse 1-6, we can read:

"1Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit[a] of truth and the spirit of falsehood".

I don`t like some things Muhammad did.

BMZ, time and again you leave me sad that you show you have no clue as to what Jesus was about.
Do you really think Jesus did miracles to show how great He is and that he is a prophet? What sort of person would that make him? "here you are every body, watch this magic trick. see how Good I am!" That would be nothing but manure!
The miracles Jesus did were miracles of love! When will you begin to see that? do you think those that jesus cured regarded it as a waste of miracle, to leviate their suffering?
This is the difference between Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus brings us to both know and love God! That is far far greater than pettty obedience. Petty why do I say petty? What good is obedience when it s given with a curse? "Yes I'll obey you but I hate your guts!" What kind of worship do you call that?
Muhammad achieved nothing FOR God. Muhammad dnied The Spirit of God and left his followers with a curse - "god can have no son!"
The shepherd slaughters the sheep to tht the shepherd may live.
The Good shepherd did not spare himself but was slaughtered so that the sheep may live. Now that is true love!

People who don't force other people don't need to carry swords as did Mohammed and his followers.

What they "saw" was an empty tomb, but Mohammed's grave is still occupied.

Jesus and Mohammed both died, but today only one of them remains remains as such.

John 3:16-21"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[f] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.[g] 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."[h]

Death - Jesus died and rose from the dead Muhammad died and stayed dead.

Fighting - Jesus never fought Muhammad fought many many times

Hearing from God- When Jesus heard from God he went to the desert to be tempted and began his ministry with boldness,(Mark 1:14-15). When Muhammad heard from God (supposedly through an angel) he cowered, was uncertain, and wanted to commit suicide (Quran 74:1-5)

Identity- Jesus claimed to be God (John 8:24; 8:58) as well as a man.
Jesus claimed to be the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Muhammad claimed to be a man.
Instructions Received From God the Father (John 5:19) Allegedly from an angel

Killing- Jesus never killed anyone Muhammad killed many
Life Jesus had the power to take life, but never did. He restored it. Muhammad had the power to take it, but he never restored it.
No one ever died in Jesus' presence Many people died in Muhammad's presence -- he killed them.
Marriage Jesus never married Muhammad had over 20 wives and even married a nine year old girl.

Muhammad received his words in the darkness of a cave.

Ministry Length- Jesus taught for 3 1/2 years Muhammad taught for more than 20 years

Miracles- Jesus performed many miracles including healing people, calming a storm with a command, and raising people from the dead. Muhammad's only alleged miracle was the Quran

Slaves Jesus owned no slaves Muhammad owned slaves.

Virgin Birth- Jesus was virgin born Muhammad was not virgin born.

Voice of God - Jesus received and heard the direct voice of God (Mark 1:10-11) Muhammad did not receive or hear the direct voice of God. It was an angel instead.

Women- Jesus spoke well of women Muhammad said women were 1/2 as smart as men (Hadith 3:826; 2:541), that the majority in hell will be women (Had. 1:28,301; 2:161; 7:124), and that women could be mortgaged.
