Question
Both Muslims and Christians believe in Jesus, though they see Him differently. Both groups believe that Jesus led a sinless life. This being said, why do Muslims believe that Mohammed, and NOT Jesus, should be emulated as the "perfect man".Mohammed, by his own admission, was a sinner, and, as such, worried about whether or not he would go to heaven. What could be more pleasing to God than avoiding sin? No matter what Mohammed did (e.g., military victories) nothing can compare with the avoidance of sin. Please respond. Thank you.

Answer
Answer:   Assalaamu Alaikum WB
As Muslims we are not  suppose  to make any distinction between the Prophets of Allaah. However, the Holy Prophet SAW is the last and final Messenger of Allaah, hence we are suppose to follow his guidance and practices inshaa Allaah.
