Inviting a Christian to Islam

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I invited a Christian business aquaintence to Islam. Below is his reply, how do I answer him?

“Jesus appears more than Muhammad in the Quran. Find out why and tell me. Who made the blind see and the lame walk in the Quran? If you give me an honest answer. I will embrace Islam. Peace be with you.”


A: The mention of something in the Qur’aan is not proof for the concocted Christianity. The Qur’aan Shareef also speaks of Jesus predicting the coming of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). So if one is truly believing in Jesus then he is required to follow this prediction. If he does not follow the prediction then in reality he is not following Jesus; he is denying and defying Jesus. How can he be on the path of salvation?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
