Judaism- Judaism is the one of the oldest religions It originated as the religion of a small group of Hebrews in the Middle East region. And was brought about by that small group growing over the years and enduring all its challenges. Abraham established or created Judaism. It was a twist off Hinduism but another famous indivual in Judaism is Moses. The best writings or books of Judaism are the Jewish Bible or Tora and the Talmud. The most Holy and Important city for the Jewish Religion is Jerusalem in Israel. Today about 14 million people practice it.
Judaism is one of monotheistic faiths and is considered by Jews as the oldest religion as it gave birth to Christianity and Islam. These three religions follow the teachings of Abraham and Sarah, and their offspring. However, Judaism differs from Islam since their holy scripture, called the Tanakh features 24 books, most of them similar to the books of the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. Judaist teachings are based on the Tanakh and Pentateuch. The Jewish house of worship is called the Synagogue. Alike Islam, Abraham and Sarah are seen as the early saints however, Islam’s religious teachings are mostly from people that came from the line of Ishmael and not Isaac.
On the surface Christianity and Islam have their very obvious differences, but at their core they hold many similarities. Both religions have monotheistic beliefs, meaning they believe that there is only one God. Both religions also have similar guidelines to their respective religion, The Five Pillars and The Ten Commandments. They do though; have different ways of worship, different holy cities and also different sacred writings.

The three major religions were sequential in their organization and thus share some common beliefs. Judaism was the first of the modern religions and was created by the prophet Abraham. He received the word of God and believed that his people, the Hebrews, were God’s chosen ones. Christianity was built upon the teachings of Judaism and grew through the prophet Jesus, who was seen as the Messiah that would save mankind. Islam recognizes parts of Judaism and Christian and adds its own teachings and beliefs. While all three religions are similar in origin and share some beliefs, they are different enough to cause conflict between their followers.

According to some records Judaism is roughly 3,000 years old, Islam is half that at around 1400 years. Islam and Judaism are both Abrahamic religions, by virtue of this, they have intrinsic values that span both religions. The Quran mentions both Christians and Jews, it refers to them as people of the book. As each religion is monotheistic, it could be argued that they both worship the same god. Moses, Abraham, and Noah are respected both religions as prophets, Islam holds the Torah and Bible in high esteem. The list of similarities goes on and on.

Islam is a religion that many people believe has stirred up much turmoil and unrest, and often Christians want nothing to do with Islam traditions. The idea that Islam has nothing in common with Jewish and Christian traditions is a false assumption. The Old Testament is the link that bridges Islam to Judaism, and Christianity.

Although both Christianity and Islam have similarities one big belief sets them apart greatly, the belief of Jesus Christ. Now, both believe that Jesus Christ was at one time alive and both believe that he was a sinless man. However, Christianity believes that not only was Jesus a sinless man but he was fully man and fully God. Islam, on the other hand, believes that Jesus was a great prophet, but nonetheless he was just a man. Christianity also believes that Jesus Christ died for their sins and that through faith in Jesus Christ alone will promise you eternal life in
Hinduism and Islam are monotheistic religions but Islam is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion that originated in the Middle East in the 7th century CE with Prophet Muhammad, Hinduism on the other hand is a polytheistic religious tradition that originated in the Indian subcontinent in the pre-classical era (1500–500 BCE) and does not possess a specific founder.

The teachings of Islam are based on Judaism, such as circumcision, distaste for pork, fasting during the first month of the year, and daily prayer. However, the major differences in Judaism and Islam is entrenched in their basis for belief whereby Judaism is based on divine revelation experienced by the people of Israel while Islam is based on prophetic claims of Muhammad who convinced other people to follow him (Levenson, 2012). The doctrines of both Judaism and Islam are aimed to shape the character of the respective followers and are used to impart values through which believers see and comprehend the
We study different religious faiths in order to understand other people. Many people have strong religious convictions, and it would be impossible to understand them without first understanding their faith. Which is why when studying the early Western World the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, which are all closely related, are examined. All three of these religions are Western, they are monotheistic, and together they form the Abramic religions. Judaism is the oldest, dating from around 2000 BC and the most ancient religion still practiced in today's society; Christianity originates from shortly after the death of Jesus Christ; Islam is the youngest, emerging in the seventh century AD. It would appear, then, that Christianity and Islam are descended from Judaism, as different interpretations of the same beliefs. A possible hypothesis is that Christianity and Islam are adaptations of the old monotheistic religion in accordance with the political and social climates of the times in which they emerged.
One of the things that they believe in is worship in the Synagogue. Typically, these services take place Friday evening or Saturday mornings. These times are known as Sabbath days. Sabbath is known as the 7th day of the week, which begins at sunset on Friday and ends at sunset on Saturday. In the culture of Judaism, they have an annual festival called Rosh Hashanah. This is a Jewish New Year. But unlike our New Years, they don 't have a set date. Rosh Hashanah can be anytime between September and October, but depending on the Lunar Year. They also believe in eating Kosher foods over regular foods. The actual meaning of Kosher is proper or fitting. This tells them which foods they can eat, and which foods they need to stay away from. When a male child is born, the Jews believe in Circumcision. Many people nowadays automatically choose to agree to a circumcision for their sons, but in the Jewish culture, they have a significant reason for it. They believe those who choose not to perform a circumcision will not have a chance to enter Heaven. When a Jewish child gets to the age of 13, they are celebrated as they are forming from a child to an adult. This ritual is called either a bar Mitzvah or a bat Mitzvah depending on the gender of the child. Marriage and death rituals are also very important to the Jewish culture. All of these traditions together, make up the culture of
Every religion has its own goal, and their own path and believe to reach their goals, however there are also many similarities in believes. Although the followers of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam may see things differently, they all fundamentally hold the same values and codes. To Islam, the Prophet Mohammad’s teaching is a complete and final revelation. On the other hand, according to the bible, Christianity believes that Jesus Christ is the true lord and savior will grant you the access to heaven in the afterlife. Judaism is founded by Abraham, and it is the base from which both of the other two religions sprung. Even though the three religions differ in many areas and on many aspects, they also agree on the monotheistic, the belief in ‘One True God.’ Those religions have many similarities and a number of significant differences about God, role of women, prayer, and salvation.
One similarity that has high significance in the world of all three religions is the importance of Abraham. Abraham is referred to in the Old Testament that is used in both the Jewish faith and Christianity. Also Islam’s refer to Abraham as well as the man that had to make the sacrifice of giving up his son. His obedience was highly regarded and recognized throughout these religions. Through the many passages throughout each sacred book God refers to Abraham as a friend. Knowing this relationship these religions have held Abraham in their religions as obedience to God through the many acts he carried out.
Islam and Christianity have a vast amount of similarities as well as differences. Islam searches for guidance from the Qur’an and Christianity depends on faith in Jesus. Islamic faith believes in the God, Allah. Above anything else, all religious Muslims obey Allah and his commandments to obtain peace. On other hand, Christianity puts faith in Jesus who is the son of God. A major concept that separates both of the religions is the fact that the God of each faith has different qualities. This means Islam and Christianity don’t worship the same God. Islam and Christianity are two separate belief systems in which two separate Gods exist.
