Muslims Who Believe in Jesus

Haifa Israel - Ahmadi Mosque in Kababeer Neigh...

Did you know that there are Muslims who believe in Jesus?

The Ahmadiyya Muslim people living in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh, believe
"that Jesus, contrary to mainstream Islamic belief, was crucified and survived the four hours on the cross. He was later revived from a swoon in the tomb. Ahmadis believe that Jesus died in Kashmir of old age whilst seeking the Lost Tribes of Israel. Jesus' remains are believed to be entombed in Kashmir under the name Yuz Asaf. Ahmadis believe that Jesus foretold the coming of Muhammad after him, which Christians have misinterpreted." Wikipedia
Please pray for these 154,000 Ahmadiyya/Ahmadi around the world. They are Muslims, rejected by Muslims. They believe Jesus died on the cross, but are confused about who he is. Read a story about an Ahmadi mother and her child discussing Jesus. Pray that Ahmadiayya Muslims will recognize Jesus as their Savior through dreams and visions.

  1. Yes the swoon theory is as old the resurrection story itself, but as you say, contrary to the teachings of the Qur'an which says Simon of Cyrene, not Jesus, died on the cross. Both teachings are equally as wrong but to be able to at least convince them of the historical fact that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified is a starting point.
    The work of the Holy Spirit is necessary as they hear the truth of the Gospel and come to faith. There are a lot of barriers to break down...Islam believes there is one God, Allah, and he begets no one...meaning they reject the incarnation. They believe in Jesus as a prophet but not as the Son of God (God Himself). In fact, sad to say, that is the verse (that Allah begets no one) that has been posted boldly outside the Church of the Holy Nativity in Bethlehem by the Muslims (near the Mosque of Omar in Manger Square).
