No wonder, Muslims do love Jesus. A person cannot be Muslim without believing in Jesus. Muslims believe that Jesus, like all other prophets and Messengers, was a Muslim.
While many people think that Islam is a new religion brought by Prophet Muhammad, the fact is that Islam is the religion of all prophets and messengers of God, including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.
“Islam” is an Arabic word meaning “submission to the will of God”. A “Muslim” is an Arabic word meaning “a person who submits to the will of God”.
In this sense, Jesus was a Muslim for he submitted to the will of God, Whom Jesus worshiped and to Whom Jesus prayed just as Muslims do.
John 6-38 reads: “For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.”
Besides, Jesus did not accept worship for God sent prophets and messengers to call on people to worship God not themselves, and what is more he had never asked to be worshiped. He refused to be worshiped.
Matthew 15-9 quotes Jesus as saying: “They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.”
