In both Christianity and Islam, God mentioned a promised savior as a gift for the people on the earth to save the world from any sin and the probable consequences. But many people still don’t accept these kinds of reasons. Therefore, the question is why would God send us a savior? What is the need of this gift from God? The reason is responded from 4 different aspects that we will review together through this article. So, if you are also curious to know more about savior sending reasons, don’t miss to read this content to the end. 

What this article discuss

  • Aren’t angels capable of doing what the savior is going to do?
  • Wasn’t there other pure people that God kept sending prophets to the end of the world?
  • Isn’t God the guider himself? Why not guide us instead of sending a savior?
  • Will the savior save people all around the world or only the followers?
  • Conclusion 

Aren’t angels capable of doing what the savior is going to do?

The question is, if God wants to save people, why doesn’t he choose an angel to send? Why should it be a savior? The answer is that God created humans to give them authority to choose the way they want. Angels are innocent and pure creatures of God which don’t have this authority. Therefore, if God wants to guide humans at the end, it doesn’t make sense to set a leader with no authority rather he will set a savior that chooses to believe in God not ought to. 

In other words, the leader should be from the same category of the followers. If not, most people will ignore the savior. 

Wasn’t there other pure people that God kept sending prophets to the end of the world?

Maybe there were some other people as pure as chosen prophets, but God ended picking prophets among normal people after Muhammad (the last prophet) because he knew that there is no more need of prophets when there are reliable holy books specially Quran. In fact, God gave all people need to find their way by sending a comprehensive book about all the issues in the past, in the current and in the future, therefore, there is no need for inspiration. 

Instead, there would be a need of a good leader to describe the hidden secrets of the holy books. So, God considered some leaders called Imam for Muslim people and the last of them, would be the promised savior who will return with Jesus. 

Isn’t God the guider himself? Why not guide us instead of sending a savior?

People keep saying that, isn’t God himself a guider? If yes, so what is the need of a savior and leaders? Why doesn’t he guide humans directly? Or why after sending all the prophets and holy people, he is not the final savior? Why doesn’t he lead people little by little instead of letting the human have the most immoral situation and then bring a savior? Here is the answer:

First of all, it is good to know that God doesn’t want humans to have the most immoral situation, rather it is the human choice! As it was mentioned, a human is a creature with full authority to choose his way. Therefore, humans – the passionate with power of choosing –  are responsible for all the immoralities. 

In contrast, there are a lot of people who choose this passion and authority to grow and become a moral human. So, God didn’t restrict people from growing or shrinking. 

At the end, there should be situations that separate the immoral from the moral and that’s when the savior emerges. Once the saviors come, those who were in the correct way would be saved from all the sin and cruelty on the earth, even though hell and heaven is considered for this issue. 

Will the savior save people all around the world or only the followers?

Last but not least is that savior is not only set for the believers and followers (not Christians or Muslims specifically). In better expressions, the savior would be sent for all humans. So, God sent us a savior to save and lead every single human rather than considering the religions. Thus, it can’t be said that if a savior is only for believers, why would God send him?

Anywhere evil wins over the good, definitely the savior is needed. Apart from that, Muslims and Christians are the most popular religions in the world which involve approximately more than 50% people (more than 4.2 billion of 7 billion people) of the world. Even if we consider savior only for believers and followers, most of the people can benefit from him. 


All it was mentioned in this article was supposed to claim the reasons that God sent us a savior. But there is one more thing to say and that’s the 3 important factors of sending a savior to earth as a gift. Before claiming the 3 factors, note that it is still three different views of promised savior:

  1. Mahdi is the savior 
  2. Jesus is the savior
  3. Both Mahdi and Jesus are the saviors

Therefore, if in any part of the article we mentioned the savior (not the saviors) it doesn’t mean that we have picked a special view rather we tried to talk generally. 

The three important factors of a gift called promised savior are:

  1. The greatness of the need: we all need a savior to lead and save us from sin and cruelty as the end of the world would be full of immoralities. 
  2. The greatness of the gift: the savior is one of the greatest gifts God considers for humans. Therefore, the promised savior plays an important role in humans’ life. 
  3. The outstanding conditions: God saved Jesus from death and sent him to heaven directly. This is what most Christians believe. Mahdi is also hidden from human sight and people are not able to recognize him. These two things are outstanding conditions that God considered for the promised savior. The saviors will emerge only when God decides to. 

Considering the 4 different aspects of why God sends humans as a savior and these three factors can completely claim the reasons for the emergence of the savior though, those who don’t want to believe, won’t since God gave the power of authority to humans.

Nobody knows the exact emerging date but all we can do is to pray to see the emergence and true justice by the promised savior. We hope reading this article would be helpful to all those who have a minimum of questioning or doubts about the reasons of emerging the promised savior.
