“(Remember) when the angels said: “O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allâh gives you the glad tidings of a Word ["Be!" - and he was! i.e. 'Īsā (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from Him, his name will be the Messiah ‘Īsā (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honour in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allâh.” Surah Imran verse 45.
It is commonly believed that Jesus, or Isa (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was Jewish, and from him stemmed the teachings of Christianity, but on closer inspection – and with much evidence from the Qur’an and the Bible, it can be shown that he was indeed, like all prophets in Islam a Muslim (i.e., one who submits to the will of God), as he preached that his followers should adopt the “straight path” as commanded by God.
Come along to this talk inshaAllah by world-renowned Sheikh Reda Bedeir who will be discussing and exploring this fantastic topic, and showing us how Jesus is Muslim. Come and learn how it is not just Christians who follow the teachings of this prophet, but also Muslims who love and follow his teachings, as he was & still is one of us.
