Muhammad or Jesus of Nazareth?


I have heard it said that a Muslim submits himself to Allah out of love, but does a Muslim submit himself to Allah and to Islam because he loves Allah? According to the encyclopedia Britannica, in the religion of Islam, the tradition or collection of traditions attributed to the Prophet Muhammad that include his sayings, acts, and approval or disapproval of things is contained in the Hadith. The Hadith is revered by Muslims as a major source of religious law and moral guidance. It consists of two parts: the oral law itself and the isnad, or chain of authorities who passed it down to posterity. The various collections of Hadith provide the major source for studying the development of Islam in its first few centuries. A careful comparison of the Quran (the sacred book of the Muslims which serves as the foundation for the Islamic religion) and the traditions (Hadith) with the bible indicates that a Muslim’s submission is done so out of fear rather than love for Allah. The Muslim believer dare not leave Islam out of fear of punishment and death.

On the other hand, the true Bible believer is loyal to Jesus Christ purely out of love. The scriptures say in 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him (Yeshua), because he first loved us. God’s love is made perfect in Yeshua His Son and the wonderful gift of salvation He provides.
