Adebayor has now come out to fully address the issue by giving reasons why he converted to Islam. He justified his new found faith by saying Muslims are like Jesus and also described them as” truer followers of Christ”.

Read below (Source: The Herald):

1. Jesus (pbuh) taught that there is only One God and Only God should be worshipped as taught in Deut 6:4, Mark 12:29. Muslims also believe this as taught in the Qur’an verse 4:171.

2. Jesus (pbuh) didn’t eat pork as taught in Leviticus 11:7 , and neither do Muslims as taught in the Qur’an verse 6:145.

3. Jesus (pbuh) greeted with the words “as salaamu alaikum” (Peace be with you) in John 20:21. Muslims also greet each other this way.

4. Jesus (pbuh) always said “God Willing” (inshallah), Muslims say this too before doing anything as taught in the Qur’an verses 18:23-24.

5. Jesus (pbuh) washed his face, hands, and feet before praying. The Muslims do the same.

6. Jesus (pbuh) and other prophets of the Bible prayed with their head to the ground (see Matthew 26:39). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur’an verse 3:43.

7. Jesus (pbuh) had a beard and wore a throbe. It is Sunnah for Muslim men to do the same.

8. Jesus (pbuh) followed the law and believed in all the prophets, (see Matthew 5:17). Muslims do too as taught in the Qur’an verses 3:84, and 2:285.

9. Jesus’ mother Maryam (pbut) dressed modestly by fully covering her body and wearing a headscarf (hijab) as found in 1 Timothy 2:9, Genesis 24:64-65, and Corinthians 11:6. Muslim women modestly dress the same as taught in the Qur’an verse 33:59.

10. Jesus (pbuh) and other prophets of the Bible fasted up to 40 days (see Exodus 34:28, Daniel 10:2-6. 1Kings 19:8, and Matthew 4:1-Muslims do so also during the month of Ramadan. Muslims are required to fast the full obligatory 30 days (see Qur’an 2:183), and others take it a step further by fasting an additional 6 days to increase their rewards.

11. Jesus (pbuh) taught to say “Peace to this house” when entering it (see Luke 10:5), and to also greet the people in the house with “peace be unto you”. Muslims do exactly what Jesus did and taught. When we enter our homes and the homes of others we say “Bismillah” and also greet with “as salaamu alaikum” (peace be upon you) as taught in the Qur’an verse 24:61.

12. Jesus (pbuh) was circumcised. Circumcision is 1 of the 5 fitrah in Islam, so Muslim men are required to be circumcised. According to the Bible in Luke 2:21, Jesus was eight days old when he was circumcised. In the Torah, Allah/God stated to the Prophet Abraham (pbuh) that it is an “Everlasting covenant” (see Genesis 17:13). In the Qur’an verse 16:123 Muslims are required to follow the religion of Abraham. The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said, “The Prophet Abraham circumcised himself when he was eighty years old.” (see Sahih hadith Bukhari, Muslim, and Ahmad).

13. Jesus (pbuh) spoke aramaic and called God”Elah”, which is pronounced the same as “Allah”. Aramaic is an ancient, Biblical language. It is one of the Semitic languages that also include Hebrew, Arabic, Ethiopic and the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian language of Akkadian.
The Aramaic”Elah” and the Arabic “Allah” are the same.

Recently, through his instagram page, Adebayor wished everyone a happy Eid Mubarak along with a photo of himself wearing the popular Arabian white thaw and an ankle-length white shirt.

  • The reasons are not genuine,is better for you not to know Jesus christ than knowing him and turning back from him.

  • This is simply a product of fanatical misgiving ,fueled by mere vagaries of of religious dramatic personnel heightened to confuse the simple unnoticed minds of our generation,the heretical brilliancy is well analyzed,BUT NOT SUBLIME.It suffices to say here that Jesus remains the Lord and foundation of the world wide Christian Church. if the conversion story is true, then it is our prayer that Emmanuel Adebayor again see the glorious unresting and unhasting light of Christianity in Jesus name! Amen.

    • Did hear you said brainwashed. Can you contest the highlighted items he made comparing what led him to accepting Islam?If not it is better you align and to see the beauty in islam.

  • Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar and Allahu Akbar. What did you all know about your bible? Is better for you all to read ur bible well, #olawumi, g. U kika and enny.

  • Subhanallah!! Y’ll rebuking him coz you know the truth,while you’re just running away from it…. See the true about Islam and embrace it. Jesus is not God,He can’t save you,He can’t forgive your sins,He was nothing but a Messenger of God. He was sent to let people His people believe and submit theirself to God. God is One!

  • Adebayo Emmanuel……….if u like give 1000 reasons for ur conversion to Islam . We’re firm believer’s of Jesus christ.

  • see let me tell u what u don’t know if u can do research by ur self u will find out that there is no religion expt Islam

  • Qur’an 2:256 says “there is no compulsion in religion, truth stands clear from error”.All the reasons he gave were not just written in the Bible and they are facts but unfortunately people have been brainwashed and followed religion dogmatically. Islam is the only religion acceptable by the almighty Allah.Be reasoned for it is not too late.Maa salaam..

  • ALLAH IS GREAT. HE IS OMINIPOTENT HE HAS ALL POWER HE DOES WHATEVER HE WISHES HE IS OMINISCIENCE HE KNOWS EVERYTHING BOTH THE HIDDEN AND THE APPARENT. IF U BELIEF ALL THAT I HAVE JUST SAID, THEN PLEASE FOLLOW ME WHOLEHEARTEDLY. ACTUALLY AM OF THE OPINION THAT U HAVE BIBLE KINDLY GO THROUGH ALL THE VERSES HE QOUTED READ THEM PROPER AND SEEK 4 TRUE MEANING FROM GOD,THIS TIME ARROUD I WANT U TO EITHER FORGET OR PUT ASIDE WHATEVER RELIGEON U ARE DOING THEN RELATE THEM TO WHAT HE HAS JUST SAID IT IS THEN U WILL UNDERSTAND AND COMPREND THE REASON FOR HIS SWITCHED OVER. OUTRIGHTLY WE DONT NEED BE ABUSING OR CAUSING WHOEVER SWITCHED FROM ONE RELIGEON TO ANOTHER ALL WE NEED DOING IS TO KEEP ON THAT ALLAH (S. W. T) SHOULD NOT LEAD US ASTRAY. MAA-SALLAM

  • As long he still Answers the Name Emanuel, he still follows jesus christ who is the founder of Christina faith. Again all the reasons he gave is not real fact, in Christianity we follow spiritually things. Washing of feet, saying peace be unto this house, and other things cannot take one to Heaven. Islams kills and shade blood, chraistains do not do. Some body should tell Adabayo that he is on his way to Hell fire. Islam is not a way of God but devil.

  • Amusat tank u very much I love ur comment,there is no need for fighting pls lets unite as one,if he choose to change is religious is left to him pls allow him,GOD is the only ALPHA and OMEGA,he alone has the mandate to judge,so judgement is not for u guys live adebayo alone to make is decisions.

    Glory be to the lord in the highest through the only son of God halleluya what is the relationship between light and darkness jesus is the light of the world and he is my saviour children of the light don’t mind there vain saying aids of boko haram devilish followers check them all over the world no islam country is peaceful shedding innocent blood for there stupid blood sucking devil call halla my fellow brethren in the in christ press on will shall all see jesus one day very soon

    • Adebayor’s idea of Christianity is a misguided one. First of all he is telling us that Jesus said this and did that and compared them with what Islam says and does. To be a true Christian, you have to be born again. This new birth is not the work of man but of God! So a true Christian is recognized from the amount of work God has done in his life. The transforming work starts when you exercise FAITH in Jesus and recognize your sinfulness which led Jesus to the cross of Calvary where His blood was shed to purchase your pardon. Jesus took yours sins upon Himself and imparted His own righteousness to you which made you a child of God and a new creature in Christ sealed for eternal life. It is not what you have done that makes you a Christian, but what God has done in you! Going to church and memorizing the Bible does not make you a Christian. So Adebayor has never experienced the “NEW BIRTH” as a true Christian, otherwise he would be comparing two things that are diametrically opposed.

  • Adebayo is brainwashed, he is just an individual. Thank God that all the prophesies of JESUS Christ are coming to fufillment, including his actions. He should rather go and join ISIS, Bokoharam or any of the jihad so that we know that he is serious. Christ is light, ISlam does not support it so ur analysis to bring them together will not work. Accept JESUS Christ as the only saviour don’t look at anybody, it is a personal race. Don’t confuse urself.

  • Has Adebayo ever decleard himself as a christian before? Ehn? Why are you guys allowing some someone sitting behind the system and givin fake news allowing U guys to Sin by discusing d both religion in a wrong manner? If U want to preach islam preach it and if its christianity please do and stop condeming one for one k? And U guys in d ADMIN SHOULD REALLY BE CAREFULL with nonsece you post all time. I SWEAR I CAN TAKE IT UP WITH YOU GUYS. BE WARNED!!!

  • Adebayor is just confused. He has been over benched so he doesn’t think straight again. He should just know that xtianity is not his problem but that his career don de finish. Na xtianity make dem de bench u?

  • Yes he is never a christian,a christian is always a christ lyk. Gods word say by der fruit we shall kwn dem.islam is nt 4rm God bt frm deir father d DEVIL we all can c d attribute ov Devil in dem even sme ov dem kwn it bt ar scared to change.

  • Like people are always confused when it comes to worship mode and religion. I can’t imagine a person calling himself Muslim and saying still saying Jesus was a mere prophet when it is written in the Quran that Jesus
    would be the final judge on last day(ranar tashin kyama).
    Mode of worship is not the most important thing but believing in Him as the end time judge, love for God and mankind, true confession and be true and just(righteousness) and not killings or slanders are what make a true believer.

  • Let’s not be deceived all of us God the almighty knows why he brought this two2 religion together as christianity and Islam, please religion of a thing is not do or die. One good thing and foot steps of Jesus christ is and what I love is following him is not by fire by force and neither by must’But his judgment is most and many of us have had hell is real. Then why are we posting words trying to argue about religion. This man is never accusing the Christians he is only trying to give his reasons for his option. As for me am never saying Islam or Christianity is the only way. Stop saying Islam/Christianity is the only true religion’But all I know is only my JESUS CHRIST die and raise again after 3days that’s the real record and he teaches killing/blood shade is a sin.

  • Who’s Mohammed? Una no get sense. I converted from Islam to Christianity 3 years Ago and I am happy to be a Christian now. All these Islamic clerics turn the Al Quran to brainwash Muslims. Is Mohammed not aiding terrorists? Is it not in his name they behead people? Have u ever heard ‘this person is beheaded in the of Christ?

  • We are saved by believing in the death and resurrection of Christ not by works. Outside Christianity you can’t believe in such and can’t be justified. Adebayor don miss road
