Jesus or Muhammad? A Question of Assurance

Two people have radically influenced the world: Jesus and Muhammad. One name invokes some people to love their enemies. The other name invokes some people to hate those who insult that name. However, movements in the West with varying agendas, infatuated with words like “co-exist,” “tolerance,” and “inclusivism,” shove all the key differences between faiths under a rug 
without any discussion over them. Yet History and Experience tell us that it is good to freely talk about differences in order to understand each other’s faith.

Steven Masood examines how followers of Jesus and followers of Muhammad use different dictionaries for the definition of peace, love, grace, and mercy. He delves into the Bible and the Qur’an, investigating how both present the creation and the patriarchs. While the Bible stops with Jesus and his disciples, the Qur’an brings Muhammad on the scene.

Masood deals sensitively with questions like:


  • Is the Qur’an the continuation of the Bible?
  • Did Jesus promise the coming of Muhammad? 
  • Is Jesus or Muhammad the “final messenger” with the authority of assurance from God?
  • What guidance was promised to Adam, to restore him and his progeny to God?
  • If Jews, Christians, and Muslims believe in the same God, why the different messages?

Jesus and the Indian Messiah

A perspective of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam

The majority of Muslims await the second coming of Jesus to convert Christianity into Islam and establish the Islamic empire. However a group of twelve million known as the Ahmadiyya believe that their founder was the returned Messiah, the second coming of Jesus in spirit.

The movement denies the integrity of the Bible, the death of Jesus by crucifixion, his resurrection and ascension. Mainstream Islam persecutes the group as heretics, but is content to use its methods and tactics against Christians, thus unintentionally making it the source of some modern Muslim polemics.

This book is written to present a Christian perspective of the movement and addresses some of the arguments that are raised by Ahmadis and and used also by Muslims demonstrating the weakness of their arguments in the light of what the Bible says.

The Bible and The Qur'an: A Question of Integrity

  • Has the Bible been corrupted so that it cannot be trusted?
  • Does the Qur'an affirm the reliability of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures?
  • What Gospel did Jesus preach and teach?
  • What about the gospel of Barnabas?
  • Has the Qur'an replaced the Bible?

Steven Masood explores both the Bible and the Qur'an, investigating their contents and comparing them to each other on the question of integrity. He gives insight and perspective to divergent and convergent aspects of the Bible and the Qur'an, dealing at length with errors in copying and translation and analyzing many specific objections of critical Muslims towards the Judaeo-Christian writings. In his conclusion he asks the reader to steer away from the 'battle of the books' and instead to set the course towards the question of Salvation, Najah.
