Our beloved Prophet of Allah,  ISA or JESUS (alayhissalām)

Allah sent many messengers to the humans as a mercy from Him. Allah sent them all to teach the people what is the correct and acceptable worship of Allah–their Creator and the Creator of everything. All the prophets of Allah, the first of whom was Adam and the last of whom is Muhammad, came with one Religion–Islam, one creed–the belief in the Oneness of Allah.

They all taught that Allah is attributed with all the perfect attributes and that He does not resemble any of His creations. They taught what Allah ordered us to perform with and refrain from in this life. They taught there is the Judgment Day in which each one of us will be judged as to whether or not we fulfilled our obligations in this life.

 None of them taught their people what contradicts the belief in the Oneness of Allah. Each one of them ordered their followers to believe in the rest of the prophets. The Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: 

   'Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all the people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one' [Bukhari]

Allah revealed Prophet Isa (Jesus) as the messenger before Prophet Muhammad. He was one of the five best messengers of Allah, called Ulul-Azm, those with the highest status, who were the most patient. He was Isa, the son of Maryam, the daughter of Imran, from the sons of Israel.

Prophet Isa (walihi wa sallam), as all the prophets, was truthful in what he conveyed from Allah. Although today we follow the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad, Muslims respect, love, and believe in Isa and in his prophethood. One who rejects or denies Isa (Jesus) is out of Islam.

قال النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم : لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من والده وولده والناس أجمعين
None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his children and mankind in its entirety. [Bukhari]
