  • I agree, although apparently, according to Muhammad “jesus had red complexion, curly hair and a broad chest.” Bukhari 4:55:648

    Perhaps you can explain how a middle easterner is red or how Muhammad knew he had curly hair and a broad chest?

  • Don’t take this the wrong way Brother but I have a comment to make.
    In Islam I know it is forbidden to make images of animate beings and that to show an image of Muhammad (pbuh) would be just as bad. So why would you post a picture of what people think Jesus looks like? Wouldn’t you agree that using images of Jesus (pbuh) or other Prophets is just as wrong as someone coming up with a picture of what they think Muhammad (pbuh) looked like? I think it’s best we Muslims avoid any image that someone came up with to depict a Prophet of Allah.

  • I understand your point of view, but as far as I am aware there is no prohibition on using the images of Christ created by Christians.

    I’m merely attempting to convey or illustrate a point and I’m not trying to denigrate the position of our Master ‘Aissa alayhi as salaam.

  • “as far as I am aware there is no prohibition on using the images of Christ created by Christians”
    i understand what you mean but what if a Christian created one of what he thinks Muhammad (pbuh) looked like?
    I think its best to avoid altogether any images of any prophets created by men and not use them at all for any purpose. That’s just my two cents.

  • The white skinned, blonde haired, blue eyed Jesus was, in part used by the Europeans as a tool to subdue the African slaves. African slaves were forced to convert to Christianity upon arrival in the ‘new world’ and in doing so, a white Jesus who looked like their slave master affirmed the concept of the master being a god to the downtrodden and uneducated African slaves. It is indeed a shame that in today’s time, many a black Christian still believe Jesus is a white man who is going to come down from the heavens and save them….brainwashing at its best!

  • The golden haired ruddy complexioned blue eyed depiction of Jesus is documented by the Roman authorities of the time. – look it up.

  • Documented by the Roman authorities? So, there exists a historically verifiable source, outside of the New Testament, that describes what Jesus looked like, and it describes him as having golden hair and blue eyes? Since you have access to this source, please provide a link. As for the hadith that describes Jesus’ complexion as being “reddish”..lots of Arabs have reddish complexion, some are as white complexioned as Europeans. Now the golden hair and the blue eyes, that presents a major problem, as such traits would be an anomaly to the region, thus are contrivances of those who wished to create Jesus in their own image.
