It's because the Muslims believe that it is their duty to God to spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, the same as Christians do. Muslims believe
that Jesus did not set up a new religion but just followed and taught the religion of our forefather Abraham.
42:13 He hath ordained for you that religion which He commended unto Noah, and that which We inspire in thee (Muhammad), and that which We commended
unto Abraham and Moses and Jesus, saying: Establish the religion, and be not divided therein. Dreadful for the idolaters is that unto which thou
callest them. Allah chooseth for Himself whom He will, and guideth unto Himself him who turneth (toward Him).
I was a Christian before and very active in spreading the Gospel of Jesus to whoever will listen. I truly believe that I became a better follower of
Jesus when I converted to Islam, Jesus himself announced the coming of the Prophet Muhammad by name in his True Gospel as was attested by the Holy
61:6 And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me
in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a messenger who cometh after me, whose name is Ahmad( The Praised One). Yet when he hath come unto them
with clear proofs, they say: This is mere magic.
5:78 Those of the children of Israel who went astray were cursed by the tongue of David, and of Jesus, son of Mary. That was because they rebelled and
used to transgress.
5:116 And when Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Didst thou say unto mankind: Take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith: Be
glorified! It was not mine to utter that to which I had no right. If I used to say it, then Thou knewest it. Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I
know not what is in Thy mind. Lo! Thou, only Thou art the Knower of Things Hidden.
I prefer to support Jesus by confirming his message and to testify that he never said in his gospel that he is God or son of God. And to accept the
Prophet who came after him, sent by God to all of mankind not only to the Children of Israel, as Jesus was.
"Truly I say to you, that every prophet when he is come has borne to one nation only the mark of the mercy of God. And so their words were not
extended save to that people to which they were sent. But the Messenger of God, when he shall come, God shall give to him as it were the seal of his
hand, insomuch that he shall carry salvation and mercy to all the nations of the world that shall receive his doctrine. He shall come with power upon
the ungodly, and shall destroy idolatry, insomuch that he shall make Satan confounded; for so promised God to Abraham, saying: "Behold, in your seed
I will bless all the tribes of the earth; and as you have broken in pieces the Idols , O Abraham;, even so shall your seed do.""
James answered: "O master, tell us in whom this promise was made; for the Jews say "in Isaac," and the Ishmaelites say "in Ishmael;." Jesus
answered: David, whose son was he, and of what lineage?" James answered: "Of Isaac; for Isaac was father of Jacob, and Jacob was father of Judah, of
whose lineage is David."
Then Jesus said: "And the Messenger of God when he shall come, of what lineage will he be?" The disciples answered: "Of David." Whereupon Jesus
said: "You deceive yourselves; for David in spirit calls him lord, saying thus: God said to my lord, sit you on my right hand until I make your
enemies your footstool. God shall send forth your rod which shall have lordship in the midst of your enemies. If the Messenger of God whom you call
Messiah were son of David, how should David call him lord? Believe me, for truly I say to you, that the promise was made in Ishmael, not in
"I bear witness that there is ONLY ONE GOD, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."
