Christ vs. Mohammed

Both were men of prayer. Both of them prayed when they were dying. Both of them prayed for forgiveness when they were dying. But there is a very significant difference. When Mohammed was dying he prayed for his own forgiveness. When Jesus was dying He prayed for the forgiveness of others. In fact, not once it is it recorded that Jesus ever prayed for His own forgiveness: because he had no need for forgiveness, Jesus had no uncertainty about where He would go after death. Mohammed was not sure whether God would send him to hell or to paradise. Jesus said with certainty, "Today you will be with me in paradise!"
