You said you don't believe Jesus washed away our sins, but the Bible said He did and I believe that. That's the whole purpose why God took human form and came to us.

Matthew 26:28
Jesus said:
"for this is My blood of the new covenant,which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins."

Ephesians 1:7
...we have redemption through HIS blood,the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of HIS grace;

What does it mean Jesus washes away our sins? It means that now we are children of God. The blood of Jesus is the blood of the new convenant between God and man. On mount Sinai, God made a convenant with the Jewish people. The Jewish people only not the gentiles. In the new convenant, God has invited us to be His children. Sure people still sin, sure they still do things that are awful in the sight of God. However, if someone changes His/Her ways and obey God's commandments God's grace will be on them and they will be saved. In Jesus we have a mediator with God. If one refuses to be washed by Jesus they have no part with Him.

John 13:8
"Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me." (KJV)

Salvation comes through Jesus Christ not Muhammad.

"Neither is there salvation in any other (except Jesus): for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts 4:10, 12

"To him (Jesus) give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him
shall receive remission of sins." Acts 10:43

The Bible is very precise about the work Jesus came to do and is still doing on this earth. Now you can deny it and pretend it's not there, that's your choice. But remember if you deny Jesus and deny His sacrifice He will deny you as well.

Matt 10:33
"Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father."

In the last day, Jesus will judge humanity not allah.

John 5:22 "Moreover, the Father judges no-one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son"

"And he sent us to preach the Good News everywhere and to testify that Jesus is ordained of God to be the Judge of all--living and dead." Acts 10:42

"For we must all stand before Christ to be judged and have our lives laid bare--before him. Each of us will receive whatever he deserves for the good or bad things he has done in his earthly body." 2 Corinthians 5:10

I hope one day you will reach back to your Christian roots and reject the false prophet Muhammad.
