Description from the publisher:
Some Christians are astounded, bewildered, and astonished to hear when we say that Prophet Jesus is mentioned twenty five times in the Qur'an, five times more than Prophet Muhammad.
The Qur'an portrays Jesus as God's mighty messenger and no Muslim's faith is complete unless he accepts Jesus as a Prophet of God.
What is remarkable about the life of Prophet Muhammad is that he came to clear the name of Prophet Jesus that he blasphemed against God by claiming a share in God's divinity. Prophet Muhammad hallowed Prophet Jesus as the messiah and as a devoted servant of God.
It was Prophet Muhammad who brought the good news that Prophet Jesus did not die on the cross as the Qur'an so affirmatively asserts. He cleared the name of Prophet Jesus that he allegedly betrayed his covenant to God as a prophet and divine messenger. He put the life of Prophet Jesus in clear perspective and bore witness that he was but a man commissioned by God to call humanity to God's way and was given special powers to help him accomplish his mission.
Sheikh Deedat use to say: "The Christians out of their love for Prophet Jesus say that he is God or the son of God, and the Muslims out of their love and obedience to God say he is a mighty messenger of God".
Prophet Jesus was a great man and is unsurpassed in many ways, but you don't elevate a man or a Prophet by making him a God simply out of your love, respect and admiration for him.
Who has the good news right? Is Jesus as portrayed in the Qur'an, a devoted servant of God, the truth or what the Church teaches through its doctrine of the trinity, God the father, the son, and the holy ghost?
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat presents his evidence and comes to the conclusion that the fathers of the church have the good news badly misconstrued.
Please note that Muslims are required to recite the words, peace be upon him, whenever the name of a Prophet of God is mentioned.
