Many people believe that Jesus (the Messiah, the son of the Virgin Mary) will return with God’s permission to earth before the Day of Judgment. They expect that he will say to his followers: “worship the God Allah (Elohim in Hebrew is a singular word), and do not associate with him anything. Allah is the creator of the Heavens, earth, and everything in-between." They also anticipate that there will be enough time before the day of Judgment and chance for people to declare that there is no God but Allah (Elohim); Jesus is the prophet of Allah to the children of Israel. Additionally, peace will spread all over the world.

In fact, Muslims declare that there is no God but Allah. In addition, Muslims believe in all the revelations which were inspired by Allah before Islam (in all the Prophets of the God Allah). Muslims also believe in the revelations that were given to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob (Israel), the Tribes and in the scriptures that were given to Moses, Jesus and Mohammed.

In the Quran chapter 3, translated verse 84 “Say: we believe in Allah, and what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophet, from their lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (In Islam).” (Y. Ali 2007)

Additionally, Muslims believe that every individual is responsible for his or her decisions as long as he or she is an adult and has wisdom. This means that most people have a responsibility towards the choices they make and the freedom they have. In the Islamic point of view, there is no obligation or compulsion in religion. The God Allah (Elohim) helps the believer, protects them, and He guides them to the righteous path. At the same time, there are tough punishments by the God Allah in the life and afterlife to those who follow their evil thoughts.

In the Quran, chapter 2, translated verse 256-257 “Let there be no compulsion in religion: truth stands out from clear Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold, that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.” “Allah is the protector of those who have faith: from the depth of darkness He will lead them forth into the light. of those who reject faith the patrons is the evil ones: from light they will lead them forth into the depth of darkness. They will be companions of the fire, to dwell therein (forever).” (Y. Ali 2007)

Muslims also believe that the faithful people in (the God Allah) grasp the straight path, and the Christians are the closest people to Muslims in affection. That is because among them Christians are devoted to learning, and they are humble and not arrogant. Also, Muslims recognize Jesus as a prophet of the God Allah.

In the Quran description of some Christians, chapter 5, translated verse 83-85 “And when they listen to the revelation received by the Messenger, you will see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth: They pray: “Our Lord! We believe; write us down among witnesses.” ”What cause can we have not to believe in Allah and the truth which has come to us, seeing that we long for our Lord to admit us to the company of the righteous?” “ And for this their prayer Allah has rewarded them with Gardens, with rivers flowing underneath, - their eternal home. Such is the recompense of those who do good.” (Y. Ali 2007)

So, many people believe that Jesus will command his followers to say no God, but Allah; Jesus is the prophet of Allah. Additionally, decision-making is the responsibility of every person who is an adult and has wisdom. The decision of worshiping the creator of Heavens, earth, and everything in-between with no association, and obeying the God Allah by following the Ten Commandments might be means to enter the Garden of Almighty Allah.
