Jesus’ testimony on the Day of Judgment
Jesus (peace be upon him) himself prayed to God in the humblest of fashion by prostrating and placing his forehead to the ground. Please take the time to think about that? Would God pray to himself?
As I stated before, Muslims believe in the Religion OF Jesus not the religion mistakenly created ABOUT the Prophet Jesus.
"And he (Jesus) went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." - New Testament (Matthew 26:39)
On the Day of Judgment Jesus will deny those who worshipped him; he will clarify that he preached only that which God authorized him to preach: "Worship Allah, my Lord and yours." The same message of Monotheism of all of God’s Prophets.
“And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him (Jesus) before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them” – Qur’an English Translation [4:159]
"Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” - New Testament (Matthew 7:21-23)
Note how Jesus here bears witness against those who practiced lawlessness. Also he says that the person who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven is "he who does the will of My Father in heaven" not the person who does the will of himself (Jesus)? And as far as "lawlessness," ask yourself, what laws are he referring to here? Let’s see if the next passage from the Bible can help us.
"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke or a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law (Torah) until everything is accomplished. - New Testament (Matthew 5:17-18)"
And according to God's Law, which one does Jesus claim to be the most important?
“‘Of all the commandments, which is the most important?’ ‘The most important one’ answered Jesus, ‘is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” - New Testament (Mark 12:28-30)
And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah.?" He will say: "Glory to Thee! never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, Thou I know not what is in Thine. For Thou knowest in full all that is hidden. – Qur’an English Translation [5:16]
"Never said I to them aught except what Thou didst command me to say, to wit, 'worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord'; and I was a witness over them whilst I dwelt amongst them; when Thou didst take me up Thou wast the Watcher over them, and Thou art a witness to all things. – Qur’an English Translation [5:17]
Out of the deepest compassion from my heart, I invite you to worship the One God of the Universe. The God of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad and all of the Prophets whom worshiped the Creator from aforetime. They were all surrenders to the One God of Creation in the Universal faith of pure Monotheism and Submission to God (Islam).
"They say: "Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (to salvation)." Say thou: "Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Abraham, the True, and he joined not gods with Allah.""– Qur’an English Translation [2:135]
"Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness."- Old Testament (Torah )(Genesis 15:6)
“Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For Allah did take Abraham for a friend.” – Qur’an English Translation [4:125]
"And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness," and he was called God's friend." - New Testament (James 2:23)
"Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but an upright Muslim (one who submitted their will to God)." – Qur’an English Translation [3:67]
In doing my duty as a Submitter to God's Will I am following the message of God by calling my brothers and sisters in humanity to faith:
"Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious."– Qur’an English Translation [16:125]
“Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, "I am of those who bow in Islam (Submission to God)"?” – Qur’an English Translation [41:33]
And if you'd rather reject the clear truth as I've logical demonstrated, then I must say with all due respect:
"Say: Oh you that reject the faith!
I do not worship that which you worship,
Nor will you worship that which I worship.
And I will not worship that which you have been accustomed to worship.
Nor will you worship that which I worship.
You have your way and I have mine." – Qur’an English Translation [109:1-6]
"Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects Evil and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And God hears and knows all things."– Qur’an English Translation [2:256]
In the words of all of the past Prophets, "May Peace be upon you!"
