Was Prophet Muhammed violent while Prophet Jesus was pacifist?
Mohamad Mostafa Nassar
Allah Exalted he in the Glorious Holy Quran says to Prophet Muhammed and to the whole world
“We have sent you ˹O Prophet˺ only as a mercy for the whole world.” Quran (21:107)
As soon Christians start to compare between the character of Prophet Jesus and Prophet Muhammed peace be upon them, it is an automatic acknowledgement that they are comparing between two human Prophets and NOT between God or son of God and Prophet Muhammed.
Prophet Jesus Prince of Peace?
Sometimes Christians would call Prophet Jesus prince of peace, not sure where did they get that title from, but Prophet Jesus himself did not call himself that. Nor he held an official position.
Prophet Jesus was a normal citizen under the Roman Empire reign and that wis why there is huge difference between Prophet Jesus and Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him.
As we just explained Prophet Jesus was a normal citizen under the Roman Empire reign, while Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him was/is the last and final Prophet and seal of all prophets AND was, Political leader, Judge, Military leader, and the supreme leader of the first state and government in Islam.
Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him, had to take military decisions, judicial decisions. Political decisions, religious decisions, and strategic decisions all together to defend Islam and Muslims against enemies of Islam, considering the period of Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him prophetic mission was around twenty-three years.
As for Prophet Jesus his prophetic mission was roughly three years only and he was sent to confirm the message of Prophet Moses.
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
Christians out of desperation usually in their attempts to attack Islam, they resort to generate lies, misconceptions, misquote the Glorious Holy Quran and Hadith of our beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him.
They are not t ashamed to quote weak and fabricated Hadith to Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him and attribute it to him as if the Prophet said it.
One of these attempts is their attempt to assassinate the character of our beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him by depicting and portraying him as a violent aggressive person. While compare it to Prophet Jesus’ son of Mary peace be upon him.
Well, from an Islamic perspective we Muslims have unshakable crystal-clear concrete faith that not only Prophet Muhammed and Prophet Jesus were peace makers to their followers and the whole world but also ALL other Prophets of Allah were the same.
In saying all that, No Muslim would ever consider or call Prophet Moses a killer because he killed an Egyptian person by mistake which was a manslaughter= mistakenly pushed that Egyptian person who fell to the ground and passed away.
Similarly, When Prophet Muhammed fought the Pagan Arab aggressors in a self-defence mode to defend the Muslim children, Muslim women, Muslim elderly, and Muslim community against enemies of Islam.
If you think a little bit, you will know that Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him was born and grow up in Mecca and he had to emigrate to Medina along with Muslims since the Arb Pagans of Quraysh tribe were very aggressive towards Muslims, they attacked them, tortured the, confiscated their properties, and they restricted all Muslim freedoms.
If Muslims were the aggressors, why would they emigrate from Mecca to Madina and why would all those injustices happen to them?
Just try to use some common-sense a bit for more information about the true Islamic History please review the topics below.
EVIDENCE The Early Persecution Of Muslims by Quraish tribe ( The Arab Pagans of Mecca) which Muslims tried to restore their assets which was CONFISCATED by Quraish tribe ( The Arab Pagans of Mecca).
That is why Muslims tried to Stop the Carvans of Quraish to Retrive what had been confiscated form them before feeling Mecca
