“I’m a Muslim but I believe in Jesus” – Naira Marley causes confusion online with his assertion

Nigerian musician Naira Marley has caused some confusion among social media users when he said he believes in Jesus although he is a Muslim.

This short but simple statement has generated heated argument on Twitter as Christians and Muslims debate on the authenticity of this assertion.

While some say it is not wrong for a Muslim to believe in Jesus since Jesus is seen as the prophet of God in the Holy Qur’an, others believe it is a no-go-area for a Muslim to publicly declare his belief in Jesus.

Meanwhile, some Christians also believe if Naira Marley believes in Jesus then he is not a Muslim anymore because Jesus is the centre and anchor of the Christian faith. Thus anyone who belives in Him becomes his follower.

Religion is very volatile issue in this part of our world thus this basic assertion albeit harmless, is causing more harm than good.

Is it possible to be a Muslim and still belive in Jesus?
