A trending Video on Facebook from a former Muslim Imam (Muslim Priest) is sure to make some Muslims very upset after he revealed Jesus Christ in the Koran.
Islamic faith recognizes Jesus as just any other prophet and Mohammed as the last ‘most important’ prophet of God. They try to fill in the gaps between the Bible and the Koran and as usual lies begets more lies. To start off, when Christ said he would send an helper “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;” John 14:16, according to Islam, that helper is Mohammed.
What they kind of forget is that Christ send the helper will be with you forever…Mohammed died.
They also deny Christ died. Though they accept He lived, Islam claims that God confused at the last minute and someone else was crucified and by some divine intervention, that someone looked exactly like Christ. I once was in argument with a Muslim scholar who tried very hard to prove that Christ did not die in the context of 1Corinthians 15:15
“Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 1Corinthians 15:15”
Just so you don’t get confused, Christ indeed died and resurrected and Paul was explaining to the Corinthians that if Christ had not died, then they (the apostles) would be false witnesses to the coming resurrection. But because Christ indeed did die and resurrect, our faith in Him and the resurrection is not in vain.
So our former Muslim Imam used to preach that Jesus Christ is not God, for him God was only Allah, and he believed Allah never married so no sons for Allah and Jesus was not God.
But then he got asked, who is Jesus? He was preaching Jesus is not God, so who is he? To know who Jesus was he says he read the entire Koran again and these are the shocking results;
The name of Prophet Mohammad is mentioned in the Koran in 4 places only, but the name of Jesus is mentioned in 25. Moreover, there is no woman’s name in the Koran. Not Prophet Mohammad’s mother’s name nor wife’s name nor daughter’s name. The only woman’s name found in the Koran is Mariam, the mother of Jesus.
Chapter 3 (or the third book in the Koran) the name of it in English is “Family of Mariam” and Chapter 19 (or the 19th book in the Koran) the name of it is “Mariam” . Already in that there is confusion. If Mohammed is the last prophet more important than Christ, why is he mentioned once yet Christ is mention 25 times and his mother has two entire books in the Koran in her name?
Koran 3:34 says that Mariam (Mary) was born without original sin, she never committed any sin in her life, she was ever a virgin, Koran 50:23 says that she went to heaven in her physical body. About Jesus, Koran 3:45-55 there are some interesting points which the Koran makes about Jesus;
The Koran says word of God, Spirit of God and Jesus Christ. So in essence Koran gives the name of Jesus as word of God, Spirit of God and Jesus Christ. Then the Koran says that Jesus spoke when he was very young, 2 days after his birth. Koran also says Jesus created a live bird out of mud. He formed mud into a bird and breathed into it and it became a live bird. So Jesus in the Koran can give life!
The Koran goes ahead to say that Jesus cured a man born blind, a man with leprosy, Jesus raised the dead, He ascended to heaven, He is still alive and He will come again. But what about Mohammad??
According to Koran, prophet Mohammad is not the word of God, not the Spirit of God, never spoke at 2 days old, never created a bird out of mud or did any miracles for that matter. Mohammad himself died and according to the Koran he is not coming again. So a lot of difference between Christ and Mohammad.
Here is a question to a Muslim, how did God create the Universe?
God created the universe through the word. Word is creator or creation? Important question, is the word of God the creator or the creation?
Koran says Jesus is the word of God. So if the word is the creator, Jesus is the creator, Jesus is God and the Muslim must become a Christian. If he says the word is creation he will be trapped. Koran says everything was created through the word. So if he says the word is creation, then how did God create the word?
So clearly, the Koran acknowledges Jesus Christ as God but the Muslim faithful denies that Jesus Christ is God.
