And futhermore, Muslims do BELIEVE in JESUS !!
Maybe we Muslims believe in JESUS more than Christians do..
The simple analogies are like this:
After a Muslim Professor had just finished his talk about Islam in an open seminar, when suddenly a student raises his hand and start asking question. This student is a loyal and pious Catholic student who came just to listen to the talk and confuse people about Islam. So his question sounds devilish to some of the listener.
“Professor, may I ask?” asked this student.
“Please, ask what may had confused you” said the Professor politely.
“Than you sir”, he take a deep breath, and continue his talking, “You said earlier in your speech that Muslims believe in God, in Prophets, but why do I heard that Muslim doesn’t approve Jesus? Doesn’t this belief contradict with what you said about Muslims?” he finished his question with a loud clapping from the audience.
“Aah!!! Jesus Christ, the man of attention” replied the Professor shortly. “Ok, about Jesus Christ. I will explain to you and all audience what the Muslim really thought of him” Said the Professor. And he continued: “All Muslim approve and know Jesus Christ. One who doesn’t approve of Jesus Christ is not a complete Muslim in belief.”
“What, really Professor? How can you say that?” said the student, realizing that he is now the one getting confusedinstead of trying to confuse everyone else.
“Yes, true...really true. A Muslim is one who has to believe in all prophets sent by Allah to educate and teach people of Islam, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Job, Jesus, to Muhammad. And all of these prophets are messenger of Allah, not to be worship or anything. So these prophets include Jesus Christ also. We Muslim believe in Jesus as the Messenger of Allah only and not the God’s son or God like the Christian believe.” explained the Professor.
This statement shocked the student. Never before in his entire life, had he heard that Muslims ever believe in Jesus, not that what he was taught in school or church. That opens up his heart and mind to learn more about Islam, this time not from Christian or Father, but from Muslim.
