Jesus the Final Prophet

Christian: May I ask you something?

Muslim: Yes

Christian: Do you believe that Jesus is coming in the Last Days ie before the Judgment Day

Muslim: Yes

Christian: But there are many persons who had claimed that they are also coming back at the end of the world [ie the Last Days].

Muslim: Yes. Apart from Jesus, could it  : the Jewish Messiah, Isa Al Masih [Islam], Kalki [the 10th incarnation of Vishnu], Maitreya Buddha, Daleep Singh [Sikhism], etc.

Christian:  All claimed to be coming back? But who is coming back? Muslim: Isa al Masih!

Muslim: In my belief, Isa al Masih will kill the Anti-Christ [Al Masih ad Dajjal]. Christian: But who is the Anti-Christ namely the evil Al Maish ad Dajjal?

Muslim: The Dajjal is so powerful that nobody can kill the Dajjal except Isa al Masih!

Christian: The mission of Isa Al Masih is to kill this evil Dajjal.

Muslim: Yes

Christian: For Isa Al Masih to have the power to kill the evil Dajjal, Isa must be a very powerful person in this world!

Christian: I find this very significant: According to Muslim scholars, Isa did not die and was raised up to the presence of Allah. To date, Isa is still alive in the second level heaven for say about 2,000 years! In the Last Days, Isa will return as a “just ruler” on earth and also to kill a created being [Dajjal]. Muslim: That’s what Muslims believe.

Christian:  According to Sahih al Buhkari Hadith 657, Isa will return as “a Just Ruler” in the Last Days. Muslim: Yes. Isa will break the Cross, kill the pigs and abolish Jizya (a tax levied on people conquered by Muslims). According to Surah 4:159, Isa will be a witness against the Jews and Christians.

Christian : In the Sahih al Bukhari, Isa will descend from heaven to earth as a Just Judge [al Hakam – 28th Name of Allah] in the Last Days. Do you know the special mission which was given to Isa?

Christian: How could a prophet be given such a title in the Last Days? Is Isa more than a prophet?

Christian: Muslims generally believe that Isa did not die on the Cross, Allah raised Isa to the second Heaven for about 2,000 years.  “Behold Allah said: ` O Jesus!  I will take (muta waffikka) thee and raise (raafi) thee to Myselfand clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection ”     Surah 3:55

Christian: Why?

Christian: But in Surah 19:33, Isa died. “Peace be upon me [Isa] I die”.  This is something for us to think about.

Muslim:   According to the Hadiths, Jesus will descend at Damascus.  He will come back a Muslim not Christian!

Christian: How does someone become a Muslim?

Muslim: That person must believe and practise the 5 Pillars of Faith.

Christian: Can you help me by telling me the 5 Pillars of Faith?

Muslim: Declare the Kalimat Shahadat [Confession of Faith]. Prayer, Zakat [Charity giving]. Fasting & Pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime. 

Christian: May I check with you whether Isa had performed all 5 Pillars of Faith?  Muslim: Not sure.

Muslim: Yes. Jesus is coming back but as a Muslim.

Christian: How many ritual prayers did a Muslim pray?

Muslim: 5 times a day Christian: Jesus pray 3 times a day like the Jews.

Christian: Is it true that Muslims must pray facing the direction of Mecca?

Muslim: That is true.

Christian: Is it important for Muslims when praying, to perform wudu[washing], sujud[bowing], Julus [sitting], etc? Muslim: If not, God will answer your prayers.

Christian: Do we know whether Jesus sujud like a Shafii [7 points] or a Hanbali [8 points] on the ground?  Did Jesus julus like a Hanafi or Shafii?

Christian: Jesus did not comply with the 2.5% as required by Muslim Law. Jesus like the Jews pay 10% tithes.

Christian:  Jesus did not fast on the Month of Ramadan as required by the 4th Pillar of Islam.

Christian: Would Jesus return as a Prophet or a Judge?

Muslim: He will return as a Prophet and also a Judge. Christian: Correct. He is a Nabi and also Rasul in the Quran. In the Hadith, He will return as a Just Judge. He is also the Sign/Miracle to mankind [Ayatan lis Nas].

Muslim: According to the Hadith, Jesus will return with the Law of the Quran, not the Law of the Gospel,

Christian: This is strange. How could a Prophet lose the Book which was given by God? “We sent him[Jesus] the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear God.” Surah 5:46

Christian: Even though in the Quran, all prophets are Muslims. Their shariahs[laws] are different. The shariah of Moses is different from the shariah of Jesus

Muslim: Are you sure?

Christian: See Surah 3:50.

Christian: Yes. Jesus is coming back soon!

He is the Last and Final Prophet of Mankind. But are you ready for the Second Coming of Jesus? Muslim: Not sure.

Christian: According to the Quran, all of us must be ready for His coming [Surah 3:50;43:63]! To be ready, we must fear Allah and Obey [Atii] Jesus!

Christian: Then let us pray, Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and accept you as Saviour and Lord. Thank you for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the person you want. Amen.  

Muslim: Amen.

Christian: Now that you have received Jesus as your Saviour and Lord of your life, you are now a child of God.

If we die this moment, we can be sure that we are on the way to heaven. God will be waiting for us in heaven.

Muslim: Wow! It’s so wonderful!

Christian:  As a child of God, we must obey God’s Word. God has commanded us to meet up with other Christians. If you do not belong to a church, call the pastor of a nearby church where Jesus is honoured and His Word is preached. Make plans to attend the church regularly!  

Muslim:  Yes! I will do so!
