Not to Differentiate between Muhammad and Jesus (PBUH)
By Dr. Ahmed Adeeb Ahmed
The confusion the media is creating about the character of Christ is a big one. The claim, that only he is the messenger of love and peace among all the other messengers even though they are all messengers of love and peace, created a lot of confusion. Of course, this is an indisputable matter.
But the Western media tool wanted to distort the image of Islam by portraying it as an Islam of murder and criminality and that our Master Muhammad (PBUH) is responsible for these teachings, God forbid! So, the Western media tool employed Wahhabism and the Islamic Brotherhood criminals to confirm this distorted image, which is their image and the image of their masters operating for them including global Zionism. However, the idiots among weak Muslims, from all doctrines and sects, were drawn to that image, either by joining the terrorist movements or by becoming atheist. Both of them are extremists to the point of complete ignorance, there is no difference between them.
Each of them has its own method of suppressing the other, accusing the other of unbelief, rebuffing the other and not accepting any words that do not conform to his belief. We even see that the recently exclusionary takfiri thought embodied by Daesh (ISIS) has been adopted by the religious person and the atheist, the terrorist and the secular, the Christian and the Muslim alike. All of this is a product of the Zionist chaos, the creator of chaos, so that fighting and dispute between the aforementioned groups continues. The one does not hear the words of the other, but rather gets fanatic and demands the elimination of the other by all means of insult, affront, mutilation, and even killing.
At the same time, it was necessary to present a Western alternative to this extremism, which is unjustly attributed to Islam, so they showed our master, the Prophet Messiah (PBUH), in an opposite way to our master Muhammad (PBUH). The truth is that mercy, love, and peace are characteristics of both Muhammad and Jesus (PBUH), for God Almighty says: “We did not send you except as mercy to mankind” (21:107), so, our Master Muhammad (PBUH) was the mercy. And the words of the angels (Peace be upon them) as stated in the Bible: “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests” (Luke 2:14), so, our master Jesus (peace be upon him) was peace.
Likewise, anger, cruelty and vengeance in return are characteristics of both Muhammad and Jesus (PBUH), for Allah says: “They would love to see you disbelieve, just as they disbelieve, so you would become equal. So do not befriend any of them, unless they emigrate in the way of God. If they turn away, seize them and execute them wherever you may find them; and do not take from among them allies or supporters” (4:89). And the words of our Master, prophet Jesus the Messiah (PBUH): “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a fire”, (Matthew 10:34).
The crucial difference between the characteristics of kindness and the characteristics of harshness is determined by the person to whom it’s associated with. The characteristics of kindness are reserved to deal with people of faith and the characteristics of harshness are reserved to deal with people of disbelief, for the Almighty saying: “Muhammad is the Messenger of God. Those with him are stern against the disbelievers, yet compassionate amongst themselves” (48: 29). And the sayings of our Master Prophet Jesus the Messiah (PBUH): “Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you”, (Matthew 10:11-13).
The sane person fully understands that there’s no difference between the prophets (peace be upon them) and that their characteristics and status are the same. Only the weak, the negligent and the violator differentiates them. As for the people who are certain about their belief and free from doubt, the firm statement is what God Almighty says: “The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, as did the believers. They all have believed in God, and His angels, and His scriptures, and His messengers: We make no distinction between any of His messengers. And they say, we hear and we obey. Your forgiveness, our Lord. To you is the destiny” (2:285). It is precisely what is meant by the words of our master the Prophet Jesus the Messiah (PBUH): “The words that you hear are not mine, but from the Father who sent me” (John 7:16).
I ask God Almighty to count us among the people who obeyed all the prophets and messengers and may God’s peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.
