Do Muslims Pray As Jesus Commanded?
But to follow Jesus means to follow His commands. Do Muslims pray as Jesus commanded?
No, they do not.
"Whenever you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, because they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by people." Matthew 6:5
Where do Muslims pray?
"... when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Matthew 6:6
Our Father in heaven..." Matthew 6
Where Jesus instructs us to pray to our Heavenly Father, Muhammad taught his followers that their Allah is not a father (Surah 5:18; 19:88-93; and 21:26) and they are not his children. Muslims are only Allah's slaves.
Did Almighty God create you to be a slave...
or His child?
You can take a hint from what King David had to say about the One True God in Psalm 139:
13 For it was You who created my inward parts;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You
because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from You
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all my days were written in Your book and planned
before a single one of them began.
Read the Bible today and meet Yahweh, your loving Father!
YHWH God, A Father?
