An Asian taxi driver says to a Christian patient "We follow the same god, but with a different name, we have the same old testament (but not the new, it seems), we have Jesus but put him below Mohammed." Mohammed allows is followers three or four wives, but in the old testament God made Solomon choose between being a Spiritual leader if he divorced his thousand wives, concubines etc. but Solomon chose to stay a secular leader. If Mohammed was a real prophet therefore, surely he would've taken notice of this famous biblical rebuke! I suggest therefore that Christ Jesus is above the others...

very true, each religious organisation is divided against the other.
The Quran is rather self explanatory on this matter and speaks for itself. See Quran 2:136 and 2:253
Hmm, clear example of Quran being self-contradictory rather than self-explanatory in those two verses - 136 says 'no distinction' between prophets, 253 says some 'exceed others' because Allah made them.
Googling WWMD i still the better option, imho.
We as Muslims do not distinguish between the Prophets; but God obviously does. When Muhammed (pbuh) went on the Isra Miraj; he travelled the 7 heavens, and at each heaven he found different Prophets, thus God ranked the Prophets.
Thanks for this analogy Terex, I think I get what You mean. No, lazy sunday on farcebook, but rarely use it!
Well, seeing as you would defer to Allah in times of doubt, that leaves you with Muhammad>Jesus, according to your last comment.
It would also mean Allah contradicted himself in Quran 2:136.
I as a Muslim do not say Muhammad (pbuh) was greater than Jesus (pbuh), nor do I say Moses was greater than Jesus (pbuh). But, God placed Moses (pbuh) in the 6th Heaven and He placed Jesus (pbuh) in the 2nd Heaven. God does what He wills.
In the same Quran story, Mohamed leads the other prophets in prayer, thereby cementing his position at the top, right?
Do you want to address the contradiction in the Quran in verses 2:136 and 2:253?
Maybe, I'll make a Hub of it. lol
No, I am making my way through an English translation of it. I do wonder though, if, as you say Jesus is accepted, why is it I read in chapter 4 or 5 that Christians (and Jews) aren't? And why the Jihadist beheadings of Christians who won't convert
The Jews say that the Christians have nothing (of the Truth) and the Christians say that the Jews have nothing of it, though both read the Scripture... [Quran 2:113]
