Who is Jesus and what did he teach from the Islamic perspective? Do Muslims accept his divinity, his prophethood, his miracles, or the Gospels themselves? What about his mother Mary and the virgin birth? As part of “Islam Awareness Week” on the campus of George Mason University, this lecture seeks to answer these very important questions. Siraj Wahhaj, an American convert and prominent imam from New York, points out that although there are obvious differences between the Muslim and Christian views of Jesus, there are also many lesser-known similarities. Moreover, there are many noble beliefs and traditions about Jesus within Islam that are not even found in Christian texts. A fascinating lecture especially for those non-Muslims who are unfamiliar with the Islamic belief system. Learn exactly how Muslims love, respect and revere Jesus as a great prophet, messenger and man of God. Ideal for both Muslims and non-Muslims.
