His Son hood to God
I as a Muslim respect the Christians’ passion toward “Jesus” and frankly speaking this passion is the only spiritual bond that I have with Christians, for Jesus is the embodiment of one of the most fundamental principles of existence that is “LOVE”
Recently I have found a post by Irshaad.net titled “Jesus – I and the father are one” was indeed very dignifying to the person of Jesus and it is a lot more dignifying than many of the writings, concerning Jesus, offered by many Christians today.
It is important for our Christian brothers to know that Muslims believe in the great message of ‘Jesus” and revere him tremendously for he is a messenger of God. I do not think that such classifications of Jesus, by Muslims, would anger “Jesus” himself for Muslims believe in the essence of his message.
Is it a crime if Muslims have some reservations regarding the divinity of “Jesus” and his relationship to God? What is more important to “Jesus”; his kinship to God or his great message of peace and love to all?
In my opinion, Jesus will not hold the same resentment against those who believe in the essence of his message and have some reservations regarding his kinship to God. We could find the answer to these questions when we meet him at the day of resurrection.
So my dear Christian brothers stay on the course of Jesus and concentrate on his philosophy of love and tolerance and not so much on his kinship to God.
Muslims consider such concerns, divinity doctrine, and the son hood to God, to be accidental and not essential to Jesus’ message; of love and peace. And Muslims believe in Jesus message which should be the main focus of all disputing parties, Muslims, Christians, Jews and others.
There are a lot of common grounds between Muslims and Christians which enable both to work together to make the world a better place for all. At least both revere the same beloved “Jesus” which really merits cooperation and good relations to address the various problems of our people around the Globe.
There is no harm in discussing theological issues concerning both faiths, Christianity and Islam. Such discussions should be respectful and be committed towards understanding each other’s way of life so that the sum results of such intellectual interaction would ultimately serve the ultimate goals of Jesus and Mohamad (the blessing and peace be upon them both).
Christians should remember that, under no circumstances you could find one Muslim in the whole world would disrespect, mock or attribute lies to “Jesus” rather there is the opposite. On the other hand you shall find many people belong to the Christian faith would engage in those negative approaches against Jesus, under many pretexts, mainly entertainment covers and other excuses.
Peace upon all
