Was Jesus a Muslim?

Where in the Gospels did Jesus use the word ‘Trinity’?
If Jesus was God, as the doctrine of the Trinity claims, why did he worship God?
If Jesus was God, as the doctrine of the Trinity claims, to whom was he praying, and why?

“(Jesus) said to him, ‘What is written in the Law? How do you read it?’ And he answering said, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.‘ And he said to him, ‘You have answered correctly, do this, and you shall live.’
(Luke 10:26-28)

This is very similar teaching to Prophet Muhammad, โ€œNone of you will (truly) believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourselfโ€

“Repel the evil deed of another with your good deeds. You will see that the one with whom you had enmity will become your close friend.”
(Qur’an 41:34)

“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear. Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into Hell; I say unto you, Fear him.
(Luke 12:4-5)

This is identical to the Islamic principle of known as Taqwa:

“To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. God’s retribution is severe. Should you then have fear of anyone other than God?”
(Qur’an 16:52)

“But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.”
(Luke 6:24-5)

“So let them laugh a little and (they will) cry much as a recompense of what they used to earn (by committing sins)”
(Qur’an 9:82)

Jesus warns humanity plainly that earthly advantages and pleasures should not be the goal of our lives. This is identical to Islam’s warning that we must not be fooled by the allures of the Dunya (worldly life):

“The desire to have increase of worldly gains has preoccupied you so much (that you have neglected the obligation of remembering God) – until you come to your graves. You shall know. You shall certainly know (about the consequences of your deeds). You will certainly have the knowledge of your deeds beyond all doubt. You will be shown hell, and you will see it with your own eyes. Then, on that day, you shall be questioned about the bounties (of God). ”
(Qur’an 102:1-8)

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”
(Luke 12:2)

If you agree with Jesus’ words – then you agree with the Qur’an:

“He knows very well whatever they conceal or reveal even they cover themselves with their garments. God certainly knows the innermost (secrets) of the hearts.”
(Qur’an 11:5)

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only thou shalt serve.
(Luke 4:8)

If you agree with Jesus when he rejects Satan’s attempt to call him ‘Son of God’ and forcefully insists ‘there is no God but God’ – then you agree with the Qur’an.

“Clear proofs have come to you from your Lord to open your eyes – so whoever sees, will do so for the good of himself, and whosoever blinds himself, will do so against himself.”
(Qur’an 6:104)
“Whoever brings a good deed shall have ten times the like thereof to his credit, and whoever brings an evil deed, shall have only the recompense of the like thereof, and they will not be wronged.”
(Qur’an 6:160)

To sum up, Allah says, “O People of the Book! Do not exaggarate in your religion nor utter anything concerning God except the Truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God, and His word which He converyed unto Maty, and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers, and say not ‘Three’ – cease! (it is) better for you! God is only One God. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. He is all that is in the Heavens and all that is in the Earth. And God is sufficient as Defender.”
(Qur’an 4:171)
