There are those who argue that if you believe in Jesus, you cannot then follow Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. That is because Jesus, Alaihis Salaam — God Bless Him — said:
“I am the way. No one comes to God the Father but through me.”
That is right. That is precisely what he said: Jesus, Alaihis Salam.
The Qur’an says it came to confirm, validate and guard the earlier Divine Scripture —Muhaiminan Alaihi. And it does.
As part of this confirmation and validation process, the Qur’an says that is precisely what Jesus, Alaihis Salam, said to his people. He said to them: Follow me, I am the way to God Almighty — the Father.
From the point of view of the Qur’an, it should be read as: Innee Rasulullah!
And that is also precisely what all other prophets and messengers of God said to their people.
They all said: Ittaqullaha wa Atee-ooni!
Fear Allah and follow me — meaning: “I am the way!”
A perfect equivalent to Muhammad Rasulullah!
