Fruits for the Week

The Prophet’s (saw) message is not limited to one group of people. His message was directed just as much to Romans, to the Chinese, to Indians as it was to Arabs. Furthermore, he was a Messenger sent not just to mankind, but to jinns as well. Just as his message was not limited to one group of people, it was not optional: it was, and remains, the duty of every Christian and Jew to believe in and follow the Prophet (SAW).

The name of Jesus (may God’s peace be upon him) occurs in the sacred texts of both Islam and Christianity. But the significance attached to it is radically different in the two religions. Muslims consider Jesus as one of the Prophets of Almighty God and revere him as much as other Prophets of God like Abraham, Moses, or Muhammad (God’s peace be on them). The Christian Churches, on the other hand, regard Jesus as the ‘Son of God ' and worship him as such. This was not the practice of the earliest Christians. They believe that God is One and that Jesus was but a servant and apostle of God.

Once Prophet Muhammad (saw) passed by a people who were suffering from some affliction. “Why don’t they make du’a (supplication) to Allah for protection,” he said. With all the suffering and disasters Muslims are facing in various parts of the world, the question can be directed to all of us today.
