 THE TRUE MESSAG OF JESUS CHRIST
Since Jesus’ religion, and that of all of the earlier prophets, was the religion of submission to God, known in Arabic as Islaam, his true followers should be called submitters to God, known in Arabic as Muslims.
However, in the Qur‘aanic account of Jesus’ birth, Mary was an unmarried maiden whose life was dedicated to the worship of God by her mother.
For, if Jesus was not God incarnate, but a prophet of God, the message which he brought from God is the essence of his mission.

 Understanding Islam and Muslims
Islam considers itself to be the 'primordial religion', din al-hanif, it seeks to return man to his original, true nature in which he is in harmony with creation, inspired to do good, and confirming the Oneness of God.
Islam sees a woman, whether single or married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings.
Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people.

 Offensive War to Spread Islam
Undoubtedly, the concept of an offensive war to spread the faith is a genuine Islamic concept; it is known as a Holy War for the sake of God.
Regarding offensive wars or imposing the Islamic religion on people by war, Muhammad said: "I was commanded to fight people until they say there is no God but the only God, and Muhammad is the apostle of God, and they perform all the Islamic ordinances and rituals."
Muslims are concerned that the popular notion that Islamic wars were nothing more than defensive wars is a deception invented by the people of the West to divert Muslims away from allowing the dream of Holy War to be revived in their hearts.

 The Blessed Jesus and the Place of Jews and Christians in Islam.
All of the religions of GOD Almighty taught the Oneness of GOD Almighty, which means "Islam" in Arabic.
Jesus didn't say in these quotes that you have to believe in me as the GOD Almighty Himself and then do righteousness in order for you to be blessed.
Jesus was a beloved Prophet from GOD Almighty whom GOD decided to strengthen him with Holy Spirit that He [GOD] did not give to any other of His Messengers.

 Notes on the Background of Islam
The use of the crescent moon as the symbol for Islam which is placed on the flags of Islamic nations and on the top of mosques and minarets is a throwback to the days when Allah was worshiped as the moon god in Mecca.
This, in part, explains the early success of Islam among Arab groups that traditionally had worshiped the moon god.
Islam claims that Allah is the same God who was revealed in the Bible.

It also denies that the Bible is God's final authority for faith and practice for this present age and that God will forgive the sins of the Jews and give them entrance to his blessing, not when they accept Islam, but when they accept Jesus as their Messiah-Savior.
This is where Islam begins - Muhammad claimed to be visited by the angel Gabriel who told him that he was the messenger of God or Allah, and Muhammad claimed to keep having visions like these until his death.
According to Islam, God revealed the Koran to Muhammad.

 ISLAM
The basic creed of Islam is brief: "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah." One night, in the month of Ramadan, in the year 610AD, the first of many revelations came to Muhammad from God by way of the angel Gabriel.
Islam is out to take over this earth and make it an Islamic moon god worship of Allah in the whole earth.
It is very curious why Muhammad gave his god the name Allah, which was the same name of the chief idol in the ancient kaaba pagan temple in Mecca.

 Islam / Submission
"Submission" is the religion whereby we recognize God's absolute authority, and reach an unshakeable conviction that God ALONE possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power that is independent of Him.
God's one and only religion, "Submission," shall dominate all other religions (9:33, 48:28, and 61:9).
The time has come to purify and consolidate all the messages delivered by God's prophets into one message, and to proclaim that henceforth, there is only one religion acceptable to God, "Submission" (3:19,85).

 Al-Ichlaas
De Heilige Profeet heeft gezegd: ‘Het is mij geboden tegen de mensen te strijden totdat zij getuigen dat er geen god is dan Allah en dat Mohammed Zijn boodschapper is, het gebed verrichten en in liefdadigheid uitgeven; en wanneer zij dat doen, zijn hun leven en bezit veilig voor mij’.
Toen ging Abdullah naar hen toe en zei: Ik getuig dat er geen god is dan Allah en ik getuig dat Mohammed de boodschapper van Allah is. Zij zeiden: Hij is de slechtste van ons, zoon van de slechtste.
De religie van de islam wordt samengevat door de twee frasen: lā ilāha ill-Allāh (er is geen god dan Allah) en Muhammad-ur-rasūl Allāh (Mohammed is de boodschapper van Allah).

 What is Islam?
The fourth pillar of Islam is the fast during the month of Ramadan (the ninth lunar month of the Muslim calendar, during which Muhammed is said to have received the first of his revelations from God, and during which he and his followers made their historic trek from Mecca to Medina).
Among the most significant Islamic doctrines that can be genuinely affirmed by the Christian are its belief in one God, its recognition of Jesus as the virgin born, sinless prophet and messiah of God, and its expectation of a future resurrection and judgment.
The first pillar is recitation of the creed: "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammed is his prophet." It is commonly held that to recite this creed in the presence of two witnesses is to constitute oneself a Muslim--one in submission to God.

 The Quran Miracles
The Holy Quran is mentioning a person called Haman who is one of pharaoh's attendants, and that last one demanded from him to build a high tower or a lofty palace allowing pharaoh as he said sarcastically from Moses to mount it and reach the God of his belief.
Pharaoh is talking to the nobles of his nation telling them that he knows no God for them except himself, so he calls for Haman asking him to build him from the baked clay "which is the bricks" a high building so he may see Moses’ God.
Light me a (kiln to bake bricks) out of clay, and build me a lofty palace, that I may mount up to the god of Moses: but as far as I am concerned, I think (Moses) is a liar!

 ISLAM
Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God".
Islam enjoins faith in the Oneness and Sovereignty of Allah, which makes man aware of the meaningfulness of the Universe and of his place in it.
The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will to the only true god worthy of worship "Allah" and anyone who does so is termed a "Muslim", The word also implies "peace" which is the natural consequence of total submission to the will of Allah.

 Koran
In this particular case, it is obvious that the Koran teaches that Jesus was not crucified and, therefore, could not have risen from the dead, paid for the crimes of man against the Laws of God, and is only human and not the Son of God and God manifested in the flesh.
Therefore, it should be obvious that the Jesus of Islam is not the Jesus of the Bible and the Muslims do not and could not possibly believe in the same Jesus Christians believe in.
But we need to find out what it is that Islam teaches and Muslims believe about the "Jesus of Islam" to see whether they do believe in the Jesus of the Bible as some claim.

 Jesus in Islam
Jesus is the only prophet addressed by God in Qur'an as Ruhullah, meaning a spirit from God.
Jesus confirmed the Torah, stressing the continuity of his lineage, but he also developed the importance of compassion and self-purification as crucial links between learning the words of God's message and possessing the wisdom to carry it out.
The miraculous side of Jesus' story has greatly obscured his role as a prophet and a messenger of God, although there are more important questions for Muslims and Christians to ponder from the life of Jesus than whether he walked on water or raised the dead.

 ICB Jesus in Islam, Hamza
The Qur'an confirms that Jesus (pbuh) was born of a virgin mother (Maryam) through the same Power which brought Adam into being without a father, and that by God's permission during his prophethood he wrought many compelling miracles among his people.
Jesus (pbuh) was especially prepared by God to be sent to the Jews who had deviated from the teachings of Moses and other Messengers.
Jefferson did not accept the divinity of Jesus (pbuh), nor did he accept the belief that revelation from God to man is a part of God's plan.

 Jesus A.S. in Islam
Hence, Islam is the last religion, complete, with the Holy Qur'an as the unchanged and perfect word of God for over 1400 years, as God promised to preserve it till the last day for all of humankind, unlike sacred texts of other religions which have mulitple versions and are "revised" periodically.
In this case, the "comforter" he mentions is none other than Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his laws and way of life (Shariah) and Book (Holy Qur'an) are those that Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) asks his followers to abide by.
Muslims do believe that Isa (A.S.) was sent down as a Prophet of Allah (God), but he (Jesus) is not God or Lord, nor the son of God.

Muhammad studied the works of St. Augustine which prepared him for his "great calling." The Vatican had Catholic Arabs across North Africa spread the story of a great one who was about to rise up among the people and be the chosen one of their God.
ISLAM AND JESUS CHRIST As for Jesus Christ, Islam portrays him as a minor prophet, certainly not as the Son of God, nor as the Messiah and definitely not as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
However, one of the key tenets of Islam is its denial of Jesus as the Son of God, and indeed as God himself.

ISLAM: the FAITH, obedience and practice of the followers of MUHAMMAD believed by them to be the final and perfected RELIGION revealed by GOD.
When the word is written "islam" it denotes surrender to God, but when written "Islam" it denotes the religion established by Muhammad in the seventh century A.D. Fundamentally it means submitting oneself to God and renouncing any other object of WORSHIP.
Islam is a MONOTHEISTIC religion based on the CREED "There is no God but God and Muhammad is His PROPHET." ABRAHAM, MOSES and JESUS and other Biblical figures are also recognized as Prophets but their REVELATIONS are said to have been distorted by their followers.

 Five Pillars of Islam
One becomes a Muslim by making the testimony of faith, "I testify that there is no god but God, I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God." This is an affirmation of the Unity of God and that God has perfected his religion through his prophets culminating with Muhammad (saws).
Its basis is found in the Five Pillars of the faith.
Islam is at its heart a simple religion.

 The Five Pillars of Islam
It is obligatory for every person intending to enter Islam to believe and to say, “I testify that there is no deity except God, and that Muhammad is His Messenger.” With this simple, important, and powerful declaration, a person is considered a Muslim.
This negation means that nothing is to be worshipped except God, nothing has divinity except God, none share the attributes of God, and none can be the creator or sustainer of creation except God, who is without equal or partner.
One may ask, “If Islam teaches that all the Prophets and Messengers are equal, then why does the testimony of faith only affirm the Prophethood of Muhammad

 The Institute of Interfaith Dialog - Islam
Although the essence of Islam is acceptance of the one God and of the prophethood of Muhammad, in practice adherence to Islam has traditionally been manifested by living a life according to Islamic law within an Islamic community.
By emphasizing the relative lateness of the Muslim accounts of the early history of Islam (there is little which can be dated in the form in which we have it to before about 800), it has raised the possibility that the traditional accounts should be understood as reflecting rather late views.
Certain ideas and especially practices have become so widely accepted among Muslims in general that they might be viewed as distinguishing features of Islam but even then there will be groups or individuals who reject them but still regard themselves as Muslims.

 Islam Glossary
According to Islam, Allah is the god of the Jews and the Christians--indeed, many Jewish and Christian figures are considered Islamic prophets, such as Abraham, David, and Jesus--but Mohammed is the final prophet, who managed to bring to humanity the complete and true understanding of Allah.
Since Islam considers Allah to be the god of the Jews and the Christians (see also People of the Book), it views the important figures of those two religions as prophets of Allah.
Allah is the one, single god of Islam; he is considered to be the same god as that worshipped by the Jews and the Christians (although Moslems believe the Christian Trinity misrepresents his nature).

 Islam
One way to understand the distinction between islam and ihsan is that the former refers to the duties one owes to God and the latter refers to the duties one owes to fellow human beings.
Specifically, the duties to God that make up islam are the Five Pillars, those rituals incumbent on every believer: shahadah or the statement of faith, salah or prayer, sawm Ramadan or the fast of the month of Ramadan, zakat or prescribed alms-giving, and hajj or the pilgrimage to Mecca.
   The Arabic word which gives Islamic religion its name is islam, which means "submission." Islam, or complete submission to God, is one of the three principles that characterize Islam as a religion; the other two are iman (reasoned faith or conviction) and ihsan (moral action).

Islam is based on having a complete knowledge of Allah (God) Almighty (His names and attributes), affirming His Oneness as the Lord of the universe, and affirming His Oneness as the only One to be worshiped.
One of the most important principles of Islam is that all things belong to God, and that wealth is therefore held by human beings in trust.

 Saint Luke Orthodox Church - Ministries - Community
As we have seen, the two main theological differences between Islam and Orthodoxy are: 1) Monotheism as understood by the Muslims cannot be reconciled with the Orthodox understanding of the mystery of the Holy Trinity, and 2) the Christian belief in the Incarnation of the Son of God is flatly rejected by Islam.
Islam is based on the belief in One God and submission to Him.
The strength of Islam lies in the fact that “it is not only a religion regulating the spiritual life of the believer, but also an all-embracing way of life governing the totality of the Muslim’s being.”7 These movements are concerned with reinterpreting Islam through the perspective of the puritanical principles of Muhammad.
