I would like to make a comparison between what Allah Almighty sent Eesa and what Allah sent Muhammad (peace be on them). Servants of Allah When Allah Almighty talked about the miraculous birth of Eesa (peace be on him), He said: قَالَ إِنِّي عَبْدُ اللَّهِ آتَانِيَ الْكِتَابَ وَجَعَلَنِي نَبِيًّا He (Eesa) said, “I am the servant of Allah.

(9:31) In the description of Esa Allah Almighty made him blessed wherever he goes. And Allah Almighty made the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) mubarak (blessed) wherever he went. When we read his seerah we see this throughout it. When Jabir bin Abdillah[i] had to repay his father’s debt when he passed away, he put barakah on his dates so that he was able to repay it. Umm Ma’bad, whose tent he stopped at, during his migration from Makkah to Madinah, told her husband when he returned and asked who had visited them, that he was ‘al mubarak’, a blessed man. Even though she was not Muslim yet … Continue reading What did Jesus and Muhammad (peace be on them) have in common?
