Before we share with you some of these verses, we would like to make it very clear that we Muslims are not Anti-Christs, in fact, no Muslim is a Muslim if he doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), we love and respect Jesus as well as his mother Mary.
Did you know my dear Christian reader that there’s a whole Surah (Chapter) in the Quran named after the mother of Jesus Mary, and not Muhammad’s wife or daughter or mother? Such honor was not given to her in the Bible itself.
For a copy of the translation of the Quran you can request a free one from the nearest Mosque (Masjid) to your house or you can request one from: http://www.allahsquran.com/free/ Or you can read it online at http://www.quran.com
Did you know that Mary is the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran?
Did you know that Jesus Christ is mentioned by name 500% more times than Muhammad is mentioned in the Quran?
Did you know that Mary is mentioned almost 100% more times than she is mentioned in the Bible?
We Muslims believe that Jesus performed many great miracles by God’s power (permission) like giving life to the dead, healing the leper, etc.
We believe that he was not crucified and that God raised him up alive to heaven before anybody touches him, and that he will come again in his second coming in the Last Days.
After the Dajjaal [i.e., Anti-Christ] has appeared and spread corruption throughout the earth, Allah [God in English] will send ‘Issa ibn Maryam [i.e., Jesus the son of Mary], upon whom be peace, who will descend to the earth, coming down to the white minaret in the East of Damascus, Syria, resting his hands on the wings of two angels.
When he lowers his head, drops will fall, and when he raises it, drops like large pearls will fall (these are like grains of silver in the shape of big pearls, and it means that drops of water as pure as pearls will fall. The water is described as pearls because of its purity).
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, it is nearly time for the son of Maryam to descend upon you, to judge fairly.
He will break the cross, kill the pigs and put an end to war. Wealth will increase so much that no-one will accept it, and one prostration to Allah will be worth more than the world and all that is in it.
” Then Abu Hurayrah said: “Recite if you wish: ‘And there is none of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) but must believe in him (‘Issa – as a human Messenger of Allah) before his (‘Issa’s) death. And on the Day of Resurrection, he (‘Issa) will be a witness against them.” [Qur’an, 3:159 – interpretation of the meaning].'”
(Reported by al-Bukhārī, 6/490, and Muslim, 2/189).
Look at all these beautiful words given to Jesus by Prophet Muhammad?
Why would he say all these beautiful things? I’ll tell you why, because he was not speaking from his own mind, and he was commanded to say those things from God.
Did you know that the Bible says that any person that claims to be a Prophet but doesn’t believe in Jesus is a false Prophet, but if he believes in Jesus then he’s of God, meaning he’s a true Prophet of God?
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.
[1 John 4:1-2]
You, my dear Christian reader, might ask, if Muslims believe in all of these things then what’s the difference between Islam and Christianity?
There are three differences, the first is that you say that Jesus was crucified, we say that he was saved and raised up to heaven alive.
The second is, you say he came to die for people’s sins, we say that nobody dies for others’ sins and we don’t believe in the concept of Original Sin.
Did you know my dear Christian reader that even the Bible disagrees with this concept of Original sin? It says:
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father (like our father Adam), neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. (Ezekiel 18:20)
And I can give you many other quotations from the OT as well as the NT that disagree with the Original Sin.
The third difference between Muslims and Christians regarding Jesus Christ is his divinity.
Christians claim that Jesus is God, though, nowhere did Jesus say so in the entire Bible.
Let me share with you some of the Biblical verses that disprove Jesus’ divinity.

Jesus was a servant of God:
And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, sit ye here, while I shall pray. [Mark 14:32]
And he (Jesus) withdrew himself into the wilderness and prayed. [Luke 5:16]
Who in the days of his flesh, when he (Jesus) had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared [Hebrew 5:7]
And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. [Matthew 26:39]
Jesus does not know the Unseen:
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (God). [Matthew 24:36]
“And seeing a fig tree afar of having leaves, he came if happily he might find anything there on and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, FOR THE TIME OF FIGS WAS NOT YET.” [Mark 11:13]
Jesus was not God:
Here, O Israel: The Lord OUR (This word OUR includes Jesus as well) God is one Lord. [Mark 12:29]
Father (God), forgive them (only God forgives the sins); for they know not what they do. [Luke 23:34]

I do nothing of myself. [John 8:28]
My Father (God) is greater than I. [John 14:28]
Father (God), into thy hands I commend my spirit. [Luke 23:46]
And Jesus said to him, why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. [Mark 10:18]
Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.” [Luke 18:19]
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. [John 5:31]
But I have a greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. [John 5:36-37]
Allah knows Best.
Almighty Allah is the highest and most knowledgeable, and the attribution of knowledge to him is the safest.
Right from Almighty Allah and wrong from me and Satan

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
