This response is to explain some of the notions against Islam, but never to refute or defame Jesus Christ in any manner.
Jesus Christ (Peace be upon him or a.s) was also a man who is a worshipper (servant) of God. He had been prophesied by Prophet Isaiah. The use of "Son of God" is not literal but metaphorical and even the term "Son of Man" is used by him. He was sent by God to the people of Israel. Luke 1:35, Matthew 2:6, Matthew 5:9, Matthew 12:15-18, Matthew 15:24.

Jesus Christ (a.s) was granted power by God to perform miracles. This is why some of the people of Israel would give praises to God, when they witness a miracle by him. Matthew 15:31, John 5:30.

The Quran Chapter 11:31 which you read is about Prophet Noah (a.s), and not Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessing of God be upon him or s.a.w). However, if Jesus(a.s) know inside people' heart, it is through the Power of God. John 5:30.

Jesus Christ (a.s) has no power to avert the punishment of God on the sinners. Matthew 5:20, Matthew 5:27-30, Matthew 7:21-23, Matthew 8:10-12, Matthew 18:8-9, James 4:7-10.

Jesus Christ (a.s) also teaches being stern with those who do not believe in God. Matthew 10:34-39.

The Holy Quran was revealed to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) from God, and "fight" was instructed as self-defense against those who fight against him and his followers because of their belief in God.

God Almighty is a God of Justice. He enjoins Muslims to forgive. But if they choose to revenge, then it should be the exact for the wrong committed to them in order to reform the wrongdoer. Quran Ch 42 vs 40-43.

Jesus Christ (a.s) prayed in Gethsemane to God so as not fall into temptation because he is prone to weakness. Matthew 26:41. He was strengthened against evil by fasting and praying just like any man so as not to fall into satan's temptation. Matthew 4:2-4. God the Creator Alone is Sinless.

God's words never change; the Quran Ch 16:101 has a different meaning.

Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) did not send people away. He always obey God's command. The Quran Ch 6:52 is misunderstood.

Polygamy as commanded by God is not compulsory for every Muslim. It is only "IF" a man can treat his wives equally with Justice and kindness. Otherwise, a Muslim should marry only one wife.

God commanded the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) to fight (be stern) with those who do not believe in God to prevent them from the path leading to Hell. This is for the sake of Love not Hatred.
Islam is the True religion that lead man to his Creator (God) no matter what negative views some may hold. One can never learn about True Islam by merely reading a sentence from the Quran or from the people who commit violence and called themselves Muslims because they are not but liars. A True Muslim believe that Jesus (a.s) was sent by God to the people of Israel, just as we see in the Book of Matthew. 2:6, 12:18 and many Chapters of the Quran explains clearly for better understanding. Prophet Muhammad's (s.a.w) family may have been idol worshippers before Islam, but some of them obeyed his teaching and changed from their old ways to the worship of One God.

I hope you will be inclined to search for the Truth about Islam, and not be guilty of judging others or uttering careless words about Islam. Matthew 7: 1-5, Matthew 12:36.
