Islam claims that Islam is the continuity of Christianity. This is an updated form of previous Monotheistic religions Judaism and Christianity. As we have mentioned earlier that actually it was same religion and same message which was started from Adam to Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Josef, Moses and Jesus and the last Prophet Mohammad, believing in one true God and believing in hell and heaven.

Muslims also believe that God sent down his message and laws through such prophets, Quran is an updated and final version of those messages. We can understand this with this example that when a baby is born, there are different lengths of dresses for him/her according to the age. When that baby reaches to its certain age and becomes adult there is no change in the length of those dresses. It remains same for his/her whole life.

Something humanity started from Adam the spiritual dress for the mankind started to reveal and kept on revealing through different prophet as humanity gone through different developmental stages. Quran is the final message for humanity and final spiritual laws for the humanity; as there is Elementary school, High school and University.

Islam glorifies Jesus and mother Mary. Islam acknowledges that mother Mary got pregnant without husband. She gave birth to Jesus. This is a miraculous birth of Jesus; God made Jesus with his holy spirit, Jesus started to talk with Israelites while he was baby, as mother Mary was accused from where she brought this baby while she was not married! Jesus answered those people that I am the servant of God and his messenger. Quran also mentioned many miracles of Jesus; even some miracles are not mentioned in Bible.

Muslims also believe the coming back of Jesus, before the day of Judgment Jesus will be back again in this world. Jesus will fight with bad people along with Imam Mahdi, there will be heavy fight between the followers of Jesus and bad people, in result there will be peace and justice in the whole world.

Quran also gives so much respect to mother Mary, we want to share some verses of Quran for mother Mary and Jesus.

And [mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds. O Mary, be devoutly obedient to your Lord and prostrate and bow with those who bow [in prayer]." That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. And you were not with them when they cast their pens as to which of them should be responsible for Mary. Nor were you with them when they disputed. [And mention] when the angels said, "O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary - distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah]. He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous." She said, "My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?" [The angel] said, "Such is Allah; He creates what He wills. When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is.

Quran 3: 42-47

We found the great words in Quran that God said about mother Mary “O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.” We also came to know the miraculous creation of Jesus in Quran.

In Quran we find the dialogues between Christian scholars and Prophet Mohammad. The Christian scholar said to Prophet Mohammad why we would believe in you that you are superior from Jesus while you acknowledge yourself that God made Jesus without father. Jesus is the special creation of God! Then this verse of Quran was revealed.

Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was. (Quran 3:59)

This verse says that the creation of Jesus to God (Allah) is like Adam, as Adam was created without mother and father. If this is criteria that Jesus is created without father then Adam deserves for more status as he was created without both mother and father.

We know that there are many differences between Christianity and Islam in their basic ideologies. Christians believe that Jesus is son of God or part of God, while Muslims do not accept this ideology. Muslims say that if we say that Jesus is honorary son of God, it is fine because God (Allah) gave so much and status to Jesus. But believing this that Jesus is biological son of God, it is hard to believe about God that God has wife and biological son.

We also know that the son of word also used in bible for (prophet) David and Elijah that they are son God. Actually by that time Israelites used to believe that they are the children of God. God is their father. It does not mean that being biological son or biological children of God.

For Muslims it is hard to digest that God came down to earth as in human shape who was Jesus. This Christian theory that human being is not perfect, mankind cannot offer perfect worship to God, So the God sent down his part Jesus to offer perfect prayers and take away the sins of humanity.

Muslims raise many questions on this ideology; Muslims say that if mankind cannot offer perfect worship to God, why God has to expect perfect worship from mankind? If God created the human being non perfect then God should not expect the perfect thing from human being. For example if a baseball coach does not teach the advance techniques to his student players and does not bring that ability to his student players. Then why baseball coach should expect that his student players will play shots with advance techniques?

For Muslims it is hard to understand that human being is not able to offer perfect worship to God that’s why God came down to earth to offer perfect prayers. It is hard to understand that Jesus himself is God and also he did fasting and prayers for the God. It is hard to understand for Muslim that God worshiped for himself and offered prayers to himself and God was crucified by the hands of people. If Jesus (pbuh) is God, there is a valid question when Jesus was crusified and dead who run the system of the universe? because the God was dead already!

On the other hand we can find so many verses in bible about the Oneness of God that there is only one and one God. It is more interesting that Jesus never claimed about himself that he is God.

Muslims hold this theory that this is true that that human being is non-perfect human beings can do many mistakes. For the guidance of human beings God sent down his servants, messengers who are also called prophets. Prophets are the role Model for humanity, they were perfect from sins. They offere3d perfect prayers to God (Allah) and they taught perfect prayers to humanity.

We can see in bible some horrible things about those Prophets, for example Prophet Lout did adultery to his daughters and made them pregnant. (Genesis 19:30-38)

Prophet Jacob who is the ancestor of Josef, Moses and Jesus, Jacob cheated on his brother and deceived his father and got this spiritual designation. (Genesis 27:1-36)

For Muslims it is hard to digest this concept about those holy personalities. Muslims have this concept that it is God (Allah) who choose his servants and honor them with prophecy and made them his messenger.

We stop this article here; this is not the purpose of the article to discuss Islam and Christianity in detail. It is just to give brief introduction and to open the doors of research for those who want to know about Islam and Christianity.

We end this article with the reminder of Quran and pray for those who are seeking guidance.

Indeed, mankind is in loss, except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience. (Quran 103: 2-3)

May Allah (swt) guide those who seek for truth and send your blessings to holy prophet Mohammad and his Ahlalbait.
