peace be upon him, BECAUSE #I_AM_MUSLIM
“Verily! I am Allah! La ilaha illa Ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) for My Remembrance. Qur’an Al-Kareem [20:14]
So fall you down in prostration to Allah, and worship Him (Alone). Qur’an Al-Kareem [53:62]
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“The closest that a person can be to his Lord, the Mighty and Sublime, is when he is prostrating, so increase in supplication then.”
أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، عَنْ عَمْرٍو، – يَعْنِي ابْنَ الْحَارِثِ – عَنْ عُمَارَةَ بْنِ غَزِيَّةَ، عَنْ سُمَىٍّ، أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَبَا صَالِحٍ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ أَقْرَبُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ مِنْ رَبِّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَهُوَ سَاجِدٌ فَأَكْثِرُوا الدُّعَاءَ ” .

#Ezra worshiped this way (Nehemiah 8:6)
”Ezra praised the LORD, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed down and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.”
King #Jehonshaphat worshiped this way (Chronicles 20:18) ”Then King Jehoshaphat bowed low with his face to the ground. And all the people of Judah and Jerusalem did the same, worshiping the LORD.”
#Angels worshiped this way (Revelation 7:11-12) ”All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”
#Moses and #Aaron worshiped this way (Numbers 16:22) ”But Moses and Aaron fell facedown and cried out, “O God, the God who gives breath to all living things, will you be angry with the entire assembly when only one man sins?” (Numbers 20:6) ”Moses and Aaron went from the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting and fell facedown, and the glory of the LORD appeared to them.”
#David worshiped this way (1 Chronicles 29:20) ”And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the LORD, and the king.”
#Joshua worshiped this way (Joshua 5:14) ”Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence.” (Joshua 7:6) ”Then Joshua tore his clothes and fell facedown to the ground before the ark of the LORD, remaining there till evening. The elders of Israel did the same, and sprinkled dust on their heads.”
#Elijah worshiped this way (1 Kings 18:42) ”Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.”
(Isaiah 44:6) “This is what the LORD says– Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
(Isaiah 45:5-6) There is only one God (The Creator) ”I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.”
(Mark 12:29) Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The LORD our God is the one and only LORD.
(Mark 10:18) “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.
(Deuteronomy 13:4) Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.
(John 17:3) The Father is the only true God and Jesus (Isa) is prophet sent from God (Allah). ”Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (Matthew 21:11)
The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
(John 20:17) Prophet Jesus (Peace be upon him) calls the father his God. ”Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'”
(According to the Bible) Jesus used the word “Eloi” when he was put on the cross.
Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”) When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”
In Arabic, “GOD” means “Allah”, and “My GOD” means “Ilahi” or “Elahi” which is derived from the word “Allah”.
Arabic inserts the letter “h” at the end of the words that end with the “a” pronunciation, thus making “Angela” be “Angelah”, “Osama” be “Osamah”, “Mary” be “Mariah”, “Alla” be “Allah” etc…
(John 14:28) Jesus says that the Father is greater than him. “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.” (John 10:29) My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all.
(Acts 3:13) Prophet Jesus was only a servant of God. “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus”
(Acts 3:26) For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God. Peter Said: When God raised up his servant, Jesus, he sent him first to you people of Israel, to bless you by turning each of you back from your sinful ways.”
(Exodus 33:20) Therefore, prophet Jesus (Isa) peace be upon him, is not God (Allah).
But,” he (God) said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”
In Malachi 3:6, God said “I the LORD do not change. So from where did John get his word that Word (God) became flesh – John 1:14?
Jesus only taught ONLY the Lord’s prayer in Matthew (6:9-13) and this is the prayer. “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’”
Jesus didn’t say they should ask in his name. So where did John get his word that ”And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” – (John 14:13-14)
(Numbers 23:19) God is Neither a man or son of man. “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
(John 8:40) Jesus Is a man and son of man.
”but now you seek to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God.”
Then he said to his disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.”
(John 5:30) God is omnipotent. God can do anything. Jesus can do nothing.
”I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father (God) which has sent me.”
(Luke 22:42-43) God is Mighty and Exalted, He doesn’t need His creatures. Jesus need creatures.
“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”
An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
(Mark 13:32) God is Omniscient. God knows everything. Jesus doesn’t know the hour, only the Father does.
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
Jesus was a Muslim ”because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.” (John 5:30) If a man Said (I seek not my will but the will of Father (God), He is a Muslim.) Islam means (Submission to the will of God.)
Once more Jesus (Isa) peace be upon him, stresses that Jesus was nothing more than a servant and prophet of God who worshiped God (Allah) alone.
Qur’an Al-Kareem [112:1-4] Allah (SWT) says:
Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)):
“He is Allah, (the) One.
“Allah-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks).
“He begets not, nor was He begotten;
“And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.”
