By Sheik Yusuf Estes - Former Christian Preacher
JESUS OF CHRISTIANITY & ISLAM
Does the belief in Jesus, peace be upon him, as a ‘
son of God
’ really make sense?
What exactly does '
son of God
Can true salvation from God, be the punishment of someone else who is innocent from any of these crimes,
to be punished as though he were guilty?
Does God need someone to suffer severe punishment, even though they are trying, day after day.
Did Jesus, peace be upon him, tell the people to take him as a god, or to worship him?
Let us find the answer to these and other important questions about the nature of Jesus of Christianity and
Look to the Books
To begin, let us do a sample comparison of the teachings of the Holy Books of Almighty God.
QURAN OF ISLAM
Surah 39:53 “Say: ‘Oh my servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of
Allah: for Allah forgives all sins, for he is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful’.”
Also: Surah 4:110
“If anyone does evil or wrongs his own soul but afterwards seeks Allah’s forgiveness, he will find Allah Oft-
Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
“O you people! Adore your Guardian lord, who created you and those who came before you that you may
“You will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His
Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. For such He
has written faith in their hearts and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to
Gardens beneath which rivers flow, to well therein (forever). Allah will be well pleased with them, and they
with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity.”
New Testament of BIBLE
“Why do you call me good?” answered Jesus, “No-one is good but God alone!”
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but rather to
fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until Heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke
of the pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until all things are accomplished. Anyone who breaks
one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the
Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever keeps the commandments and teaches others to do the same will be
called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.”
