⇛ In Mark 14:32 “and he (Jesus) saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.”
⇛ Luke 3:21: “Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened.”
⇛ In Luke 6:12: “And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.” Further,
⇛ In Luke 22:44 “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.”
⇛ In Matthew 26:39: “And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”
➲ These verses do not speak of Jesus (pbuh) interceding, or consorting, or consulting, but PRAYING.
➲ Jesus (pbuh) and his disciples are continuously being described in the Bible as “falling on their faces and praying” which is exactly the way Muslims pray today. They pray the way Jesus (pbuh) did.
Mr. Tom Harpur says
➬ “In fact, unless we are prepared to believe that his prayer dependence on God was nothing more than a sham for our edification, a mere act to set us a good example, it is ➬ impossible to cling to the orthodox teaching that Jesus was really ➬ God Himself walking about in human form, the Second Person of the Trinity. The concept of God praying - ➬ let alone praying to Himself - is incomprehensible to me. To say that it was simply the human side of Jesus talking to God the Father (rather than his own divine nature as Son of God) is to posit a ➬ kind of schizophrenia that is incompatible with any belief in ➬ Jesus’ full humanity”

⇛Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam. Those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) did not differ except, out of mutual jealousy, after knowledge had come to them. And whoever disbelieves in the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah, then surely, Allah is Swift in calling to account.
