Jesus and Muhammad are Brothers – CAIR

During the Christmas season, Christian families seek to maintain a focus on Jesus and his legacy.

Many of our Christian brothers and sisters may be surprised to know that Muslims love and revere Jesus as one of God’s greatest messengers to mankind, just as we love and revere the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon them both.

The Prophet Muhammad sought to erase any distinctions between the message he taught and that taught by Jesus, whom he called God’s “spirit and word.”

Prophet Muhammad said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”

“Behold! The angels said: ‘O Mary! God gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and in (the company of) those nearest to God.'”

The quote above is not from the New Testament. It is taken from the Quran, Islam’s revealed text. (3:45)…

…Obviously, Muslims and Christians have differing interpretations of the details of the life and message of Jesus. But by focusing on what we have in common, Christians and Muslims of goodwill can help build bridges of interfaith understanding and serve as a counterweight to the voices of division and extremism…

Islamic State and numerous other terror group do not seem to received the memo. I am no expert on the Koran but I suspect he is being very selective in the verses quoted. The historical treatment of Christians under Islam suggests they were definitely second class citizens.

  • No. I am pretty certain Jesus danced as Mohammed was cast into hell for all eternity.

    I do not want anyone sent to hell……these morons are deceived and blinded they are walking in the spirit of Stupor as scipture speaks on I do not hate them I hate what they make this world to be – they are nothing but swine on a road to hell

    I dont receive this seeming approach either. Rejected their attempt to make Jesus less than their Prophet, when Jesus is the very Son of God and the Muslim a false prophet.

    Yes, muslims love Jesus so much that they kill every Christian they come across. Contrary to what muslims and united church members think, the New Testament is quite clear that Jesus was not just a prophet, but the Son of God, God in the flesh come to earth. And muslims ignore the New Testament passage that no one enters the Kingdom of God except through Jesus Christ.

    Read Sura 3 after 3:45

    Sahih International
    But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, “Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?” The disciples said,” We are supporters for Allah . We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].

    Sahih International
    And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.”

    Sahih International
    Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists.

    Sahih International
    And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

    Sahih International
    We will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah of which He had not sent down [any] authority. And their refuge will be the Fire, and wretched is the residence of the wrongdoers.

    Someone should point out to CAIR that Jesus-Christ was a Jew.

    Don’t fall for this. Muslims believe Jesus will return and when he does he will destroy what’s left of Christianity and he will get married. Jesus of the Koran is a Muslim — nuff said. He’s important to the Muslims because they say he prophesied the coming of Muhammad. He was actually prophesying the coming of the Holy Spirit.

    Jesus – the peace loving son of God.
    Mohammed – the pedophile, rapist who justified lying to, thievery, slavery, and murder of those who did not submit to his religion.

    Nope, I don’t see any family resemblance.

    Nihad Awad is a friend of Sheema Khan when she was at CAIR Canada during the period that CAIR was funding Hamas terrorist and global jihad. The CBC used Khan ( aka Con-job Khan) for their go-to Muslim to get the true voice of the moderate muslims in Canada.
    Oh well, first the CBC finds their Star Muslim at CAIR Canada has ties to hamas via CAIR using the HLF islamic charity in Texas to funnel Donations out of North America to Jihadist terrorist org.’s , now the CBC’s 2nd Star Muslim Jian is linked to his racists misogyny to abuse to beat-up white non-muslim women .

    Why hasn’t TVO and the CBC called back Khan to explain her ties to hamas and Hezballah as seen in the photo where Awad is at the Pro-hamas rally that included Hezballah flags.

    1. The original is at Luke 1:35, but Mohammed could only cite what he thought someone had told him years before.

    “And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.”

    2. Given what the Mohammedans claim of ‘Jesus’, their cult can be deemed “blasphemy” and the members are “infidels”.


  • Impossible.

    Jesus was Jewish, the Son of God, a carpenter who held down a job instead of relying on jizya or petro-dollars, non-judgmental, rose from the dead and was literate.

    The other guys, well…
