As we all know, there are many religion systems all over the World. From East to West, North to South we encounter countless different religions. Hinduizm, Budizm, even Paganizm are some of them. Quantity of followers is not an issue for me, a single person or millions… It doesn’t matter, does it?
Among all of these religion systems, three of them are clearly distinguished with similar features.
As you expect, they are Judaizm, Christianity and Islam. Of course there are some important differences between them but similarities are much more than these differences.
I’m not going to make a deep analysis about these similarites and differences. May be latter… But I want to share a little bit of information with you. This information is about our approach upon Christianity, Bible and Jesus.
First of all, Qur’an itself is an approvement of the reality of Christianity and the Bible. We, muslims, beleive with all our hearts that Jesus was a real prophet form God. Like Abraham, Moses and finally Mohammad.
From the point of view of Qur’an all Prophets are equal. So, we accept all the prophets equally and don’t give one of them a superiority. Prophet Mohammad is not an exception for this matter.
Moreover, accepting the Prophethood of Jesus and the other messengers mentioned in the Qur’an is a very important pre-condition for muslims. Anybody who rejects the prophethood of Jesus or any prophets mentioned in the Qur’an is not a muslim anymore.
And according to the Qur’an Jesus was a” Word of God”. Such a big honor…
There are tons of statements and of course criticism about Christianity in the Qur’an. For example one of the long Surah’s name is “Imran’s Family”. Imran was a father of Virgin Mary.
It will be great if you find a copy of Qur’an and read it.
But we also learn from the Qur’an that humanity has a tendency of glorification on historical persons, like prophets.
Extremity in love always brings some troubles and misunderstandings to the future generations.
Extreme love might evolves to worship. Extreme love and even compulsory political structures mşght lead the people wrong actions.
Qur’an mentions many times that God is one and he has no fellow. Every single thing in the universe is a creation of God. Human is not an exeption.
God is the one, He is not a combination of two or three things. If it is, we can’t call him as God.
God mentions in the Qur’an several times that nothing is similar to Him.
He is the one. That’s it.
When you call Jesus as “son of God” you actually don’t give an honor to Jesus. You betray God. And you betray Holy Spirit, Gabriel.
You may find your ancestors in this way but you can easily find the truth with a clean mind.
