Join millions of Christians in the largest international prayer focus on the Muslim world.
“We’ve been praying since 1993. Incredible change is happening in the Muslim world. We believe you have a big part in that change…” – Andy, UK
Each year Christians from around the world will be praying in unity for the Muslim world, coinciding with Ramadan.
Muslims do not generally realise :
…. that Jesus, the Messiah, is to be obeyed.
… that Jesus has the ability to forgive sins.
… that Jesus has conquered death through his resurrection.
… that Jesus has power over evil spirits.
Muslims think of Jesus as a great prophet who preached an earlier form of Islam. They believe that Jesus is God’s Messiah, based on the Qur’anic texts, but they usually have no idea that actually means that Jesus is God’s anointed King and Saviour for all humanity.
Muslims generally believe that they can earn God’s approval through religious activities (prayers, fasting, giving money).
Muslims do not think that they can know God. They only think that they can know about Him.

You can find out more about the Islamic perspective on Jesus by reading about him in the Qur’an. Various chapters (suras) and verses are indicated below. Jesus is usually referred to in the Qur’an by the name Isa. Various titles, roles and activities are attributed to Jesus. Here are a few examples:
Jesus is the word of God:
Sura: 3:45; 5:46, 110 and 57:27
Jesus is Messiah:
Sura: 3:45; 4:171; 5:17, 72, 75
Prophet or a Messenger from God:
Sura: 3:49; 6:85; 19:30; 57:27
Raised the dead and healed the sick:
Sura: 3:49; 5:110
Even if the Qur’anic ideas listed above are the same or similar to Biblical ideas, Muslims never think of Jesus as being divine or as saving us through his death and resurrection. They think of him as a prophet who brought a book called the “Injil” (Gospel).
