Prophet Jesus Will Return: Why Not Prophet Muhammed?
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
This is an interesting question, based on the Muslim belief that Jesus will return at the end of times and as a sign of a Pre-Judgment Day.
A reasonable question jumps to mind:
Why Jesus and not the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon both).?
So why Jesus in the first place?
The explanation is:
Jesus is one of the most controversial and misunderstood figures in all of history as there have been many prophets and messengers of God.
Islam believes Jesus, peace be upon him, was a one hundred human prophet and a messenger of God, his message was corrupted, and some people start to consider him to be son of God or God incarnate. In regurgitation of ancient Pagan Roman traditions. That is why we Muslims say that the true teachings of Prophet Jesus had been Romanised at the hands of the Romans.
Prophet Jesus original message had been distorted by some corrupted Jews who thought of Prophet Jesus message to be a critical threat to their own best interests in being Rabbais in charge of the Jewish nation and making rules that sited them and their families and those connected to them.
Prophet Jesus’ message was all about worshipping Almighty Allah the true creator of everything and refrain from considering Rabbani’s corrupted rules the true rules from God. Obviously, that did not go well with the Rabbais at the time. And that is why they tried to Kill Prophet Jesus, but Almighty Allah saved him.
Islam does not reject that a crucifixion incident took place but was NOT for Prophet Jesus who was saved and raised to heavens as a human Prophet awaiting the return before Judgment Day.
Also, Prophet Jesus peace be upon him will return to this earth to complete his life cycle and die natural death All being said now, at the same time there are some people who rejected him altogether.
So here we have like two extremes, on one hand some rejecting him altogether, on the other hand some others deifying him. But Islam is offering the perfect balance view between the two extremes which is the absolute truth about Prophet Jesus. Well, we Muslims can keep telling people about this balanced view, but some people will not believe us.
That is why the return of Prophet Jesus himself will settle the great controversy surrounding him and the questions and debates raised around him, so those who rejected him will see the man by himself telling them the truth about himself.
That is why Prophet Jesus’ return is required and promised to rectify the ambiguity trinitarians and Jesus’ worshippers have in their minds.
Those who previously and currently deified him will see him now arriving, in this context coming to be part of the Muslim community at the time of his return and will be praying along with them, praying to the God that he always prayed to.
They will now have no remaining questions about him, and they will realize that Jesus is a man, a human being, a prophet of God who has been erroneously made into a God by the thinking of deviants.
Perhaps by now you might start to realise that asking the question: why Jesus is going to return but not Prophet Muhammed? Already has an answer which you just have read.
We would like to confirm that there is no need for Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to return as there has been no need and he is the last, final and seal of all Prophets and the Universal message of Islam is alive, intactly preserved.
In Islam we believe that there have been a lot of prophets in all of history, and the Quran states that every nation was sent one of the prophets, messengers, or both
Only Jesus is specifically singled out in this regard in Muslim and Christian belief as the one who will return towards the end of time. Some people thought that John the Baptist will also return some thought that Elijah will return, but credible authentic prophecies in that regard.
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
