Canadian Islamic newspaper: Netflix thriller on Jesus “offensive” to Muslims

Based in Surrey, British Columbia AlAmeen Post newspaper is “a news reporting agency” that “strives to maintain its news contents purely in accordance with the Islamic teachings.”

On December 23, 2019 AlAmeen Post newspaper published an article titled “The netflix series and Jesus The Prophet of Islam and The Messiah of Muslims.”

Here is the article signed by Alameen:

The Messiah is an Anti-Islamic propaganda perpetuated by the upcoming release of a series on January 1, 2020, by Netflix. It is not only provocative. It is outrageously offensive to all three monotheistic faith – The Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

Netflix’ series Messiah’s “mise-en-scène” – the “Visual Theme” or “Telling a Story – the plot posits on disseminating misinformation and perpetuate misconceptions about Islam and Muslims. It is nothing but Hollywood’s latest attempt, in a series of its decade old continued propaganda war against Islam and Muslims and trying to show Muslims, especially Arabs as backward, illiterate, and blood thirsty war mongers, bent on destroying the peace on earth.

Muslims revere Jesus too. Jesus the son of Mary (Isa Ibn Maryam), is equally revered by Muslims as Prophet Mohammed and Prophet Moses (Musa) – Peace be upon them all. Anyone void of this reverence cannot claim to be a Muslim. If one truly analyzes, the commonality between Christianity and Islam. The commonality outweighs the discord. “The Messiah” both the Christians and the Muslims are waiting for is none other than Jesus the son of Mary.

Jesus is the most mentioned person in the Quran. His name appears in the Quran twenty-five times, compare to Prophet Mohammed, only four times. The significance of Jesus in Islam is referenced in ninety-three verses of the Quran and Jesus is mentioned directly or indirectly 187 times in the Quran.

Most significantly, it is not Prophet Mohammed, rather it is Prophet Jesus, just he has been presented in the New Testament is the Messiah.

The Quran also describes Jesus as “The Messiah” (Al-Masih), who will return to earth before the Judgement day and defeat evil. The Messiah who will restore, peace, harmony, equality, justice, and most importantly defeat Al-Masih ad Dajjal – The false Messiah – The Antichrist!

Islam proclaims that God repeatedly sent Prophets to guide the humanity towards monotheism. Muslims must respect and revere them all equally and indiscriminatory.

According to Islam, the “Elites” among the family of prophets are the “Messengers” (Rusul). Those who were the recipient of divine revelations, Risalah, the Holy Scriptures, from the God Almighty – Allah. Prophet Mohammed, Quran, Prophet Moses, Torah, (Tawrat) the Old Testament, and Jesus, Bible (Injil), the New Testament, Prophet Abraham, Scrolls of Abraham (Suhuf Ibrahim) and the Psalms (Zabur) given to David (Dawud).

Prophet Mohammed’s recorded words (Hadith) state, “I am the closest of the people to Jesus the son of Mary in this life and in the Hereafter.” The Prophet said, “The prophets are brothers from one father with different mothers. They have one religion and there was no other prophet between us.”

Islam honours the mother of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, as a noble woman, belonging to a great Abrahamic prophetic prodigy. In fact, an entire chapter of the Quran is dedicated to Mary (Maryam), where God talks about the miraculous birth of Jesus, and how Virgin Mary has a special place in the Quran bestowed upon her by Allah is that she not only has an entire chapter named after her. She is also is the only woman whose name is mentioned in the Quran. All other women mentioned in the Quran is through a male reference, wife of Abraham, mother or sister of Moses, wife of Mohammed, wife or daughters of Lot.

The Quran also validates the basis of Christian holiday, Christmas. The Nativity of Jesus, the miraculous birth, through divine intervention, the virginal conception birth of Jesus, as like the event of the annunciation of Christianity described in Gospel and occurring in Bethlehem. “And mention, [O Muhammad], in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. And she took, in seclusion from them, a screen. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a well-proportioned man. She said, “Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me], if you should be fearing of Allah. He said, I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.” [Quran Ch. Mary 19:16-19]

Some scholars have noted that accounts of Quran in Chapter 19 are particularly close to that in Christian Gospel of Luke.

However, unlike Prophet Mohammed who has not been associated with any known miracles. The Quran validates the six great miracles granted to Jesus by God, thus reaffirming his authority as a Prophet of God. They are as follow: Speaking from the Cradle, Creating birds from clay, Healing the blind and the leper, power over death, Prescience – foreknowledge of the unknown, predicting future, and lastly, The last supper – Table of food from the heaven.

Quran also reaffirms that Jesus was aided by his disciples. Although the Quran does not mention the names of the disciples. The Quran states, “But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, “Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah?” The disciples said,” We are supporters for Allah. We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].”

Muslims have been prewarned by Prophet Mohammed about the Second-Coming of Jesus quite graphically. Jesus’ descent will be in midst of complete chaotic war fought by Al-Mahdi, the rightly guided Caliph as the saviour, the, redeemer, and the Messiah of Islam against Al-Masih ad Dajjal – The Antichrist.

According to the recorded words of Prophet Mohammed, “The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it (as charitable gifts).”

Considering all this let us now examine the controversy and anti-Islamic propaganda perpetuated by the upcoming release of a series on January 1, 2020, by Netflix, The Messiah. It is not only provocative. It is outrageously offensive to all three monotheistic faith – The Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.

The Messiah series is yet another attempt by Hollywood to fan the fire of Islamophobia with their blatant lies that has no foundation in Islam, is contrary to Islamic teachings and what Muslims believe and view Jesus as.

We encourage our readers to join thousands of people around the globe who are disgusted by Netflix abuse its powers of dissemination and portrayal of one of God’s greatest prophet as a hoax and possibly an evil character bent on destroying world peace.

Allah will destroy all religions except Islam”

On November 19, 2018 activists at the Islamic booth at Dundas Square in Toronto offered free Islamic literature for passerby that included the book “The True Message of Jesus Christ” written by Bilal Philips. Here is an excerpt from the book:

Among the things which Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was recorded to have said regarding Prophet Jesus’ return is the following, “There will be no prophet between me and Jesus, and he will return. When he does, you will know him. He will be a well-built man of ruddy complexion and he will descend wearing a two-piece garment. His hair will look wet, though no water touched it. He will fight people to establish Islaam and he will break the cross, kill the pig and cancel the jizyah [a per capita yearly taxation historically levied in the form of financial charge on permanent non-Muslim subjects]. During his time, Allaah will destroy all religions except Islaam and the False-Christ will be killed. Jesus will remain on earth for forty years, and when he dies, Muslims will pray the funeral prayer for him.”
