Is it True That Muslims Love and Respect Jesus?

Executive Summary

  • Muslims often state that they love Jesus and consider him one of the prophets.
  • We cover a Koranic verse that contradicts this claim.


Muslims attempt to disarm Christians by stating that they “love” and “respect” Jesus. However, Muslims consider Jesus to be an ancillary prophet to Mohammed, but they have a Koranic verse that entirely undermines Jesus. We will cover this topic in the article.

Is it True That Muslims Love and Respect Jesus?

What Happens When Jesus Returns?

The Apostate Prophet states that, according to Islam, Jesus will:

  • End Christianity
  • Abolish Jizya (unnecessary now that everyone is Muslim)
  • Kill the pigs
  • Fight the Dajjal (Islamic antichrist)
  • Destroy all other religions
  • Fight the Jews

What Muslims Think of Christians

Fight those who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, nor abide by the religion of truth—from among those who received the Scripture—until they pay the due tax, willingly or unwillingly.

30. The Jews said, “Ezra is the son of God,” and the Christians said, “The Messiah is the son of God.” These are their statements, out of their mouths. They emulate the statements of those who blasphemed before. May God assail them! How deceived they are!

31. They have taken their rabbis and their priests as lords instead of God, as well as the Messiah son of Mary. Although they were commanded to worship none but The One God. There is no god except He. Glory be to Him; High above what they associate with Him.

32. They want to extinguish God’s light with their mouths, but God refuses except to complete His light, even though the disbelievers dislike it. – ClearQuran (9:30)

Hmmm….that does not sound very loving?

Muslims Believe that Christians Will Burn in Hell Fire

This is what Koran said about unbelievers.

Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein. They are the worst creatures. – Holy Qur-an by Wordsworth Editions

Why would Muslims say they love Jesus if those who follow Jesus, Christians, are the worst creatures? 

If Muslims universally love Jesus, why do so many Muslims consider it haram for a Muslim to celebrate Christmas? 

Muslims receive our Golden Pinocchio Award for lying about “loving Jesus,” just as much as Christians. Why would Muslims say they “love Jesus” without also pointing out that their documentation tells them to hate and fight Christians? 


This claim about loving Jesus is another lie told by Muslims, which seeks to whitewash actual Muslim beliefs. If Muslims love Jesus, one wonders why Christians were made to pay the jizya in lands that they conquered.

Islam is highly respectful of all other religions through words and deeds, and whitewashing this by trying to lie to Christians is a disgusting lie. This is another in a long list of Muslims’ lies that we have found from researching the topic.
