The book Jesus and Muhammad: 2 Rays of the Same Light takes the reader on a journey through the authentic teachings of Jesus and Muhammad. During the course of this journey, each reader is presented with numerous themes and topics that were excellently addressed by Jesus in the New Testament and that were also superbly addressed by Muhammad in the Quran, thus illustrating profound similarities, complements, and parallels. Providing ample food for thought and reflection, the book provides numerous examples where the teachings of Jesus and Muhammad clearly demonstrate continuity, balance, and congruence. An excellent analysis is made of “The Sermon on the Mount,” also entitled “The Beatitudes,” from Jesus while on the mountain, compared to “The Farewell Sermon,” also entitled “The Final Sermon,” of Muhammad, also delivered while on a mountain. The critical insights and synergy is compelling and indeed thought-provoking, as well as inspirational. The book brilliantly explores the subject of religious interfaith, providing scriptural support from Jesus, as per the New Testament, and from Muhammad, as per the Quran, as an unbiased platform. The book does an excellent job of identifying numerous examples where the teachings of Jesus and Muhammad does indeed portray them as two rays of the same light!
