Islam, also a monotheistic religion, has a book similar to that of the Holy Bible. It is called the Quran. To Muslims, the Quran contains the sacred text as spoken to Muhammad from god. The Quran not only teaches about God, but about how to lead a good, faithful, and life.
And Jews worship the god called Yahweh, which means the God of Israel. Their differences include their core beliefs, rituals, symbols, and history. Muslims believe that the absolute deity is Allah. However, they also believe that there was a string of prophets sent by God to teach his word. The last of these prophets was Muhammad.
Christian and Islam are the most prominent world religions that are being practiced nearly on every continent around the earth. Christianity is a form of religion that took its name from a word that is used to describe Jesus. This word is a Greek word that is Christ and in Hebrew it is the same as the statement messiah which means the anointed one. Islam also is a form of religion whose its followers are called Muslims. The word Islam means submission that signifies the obedience to the ruler.
The Quran is a book that Muslims believe gives them guidance in all aspects of their lives. The Quran was a book revealed from God himself to the Prophet Muhammad.The similarities and differences are clearly seen.Both religions believe in a sacred text (The Bible and The Quran) from God. Christians and Muslims must learn to obey and practice the message contained in the books - The Bible or The Quran. The main difference between Christianity and Islamic is that, Christians believe the bible was a book written by the disciples when Jesus was preaching.Muslims also believe that the Quran is literally the word of God but received by Muhammed. Christianity and Islam have rituals and traditions that they need to perform throughout their lives.
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.
The Muslims follow a book entitled the Qur'an. The Qur'an is believed to be the exact words of God as revealed to their prophet Muhammad. The Qur'an is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. The Muslim religion does have similarities to the Christian faith in that it can be traced back to Abraham who set up a covenant with God, this being the same God that Christians believe in. A second similarity lies in their belief in a God and a prophet.
Islam’s founder and leader is the prophet Muhammad, meanwhile in Christianity, Jesus is their founder and leader. Christians also refer to individuals such as Peter, and Paul as Disciples, which translates to: follower of Jesus. Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God and the savior of the world. Christianity places Jesus on a higher pedestal than Islam. The Nature of God and Jesus’s death are other debated matters where in Christianity, God is composed of three people; the Son, the Father and the Holy Spirit and are certain that Jesus was crucified.
Similarities Some of the similarities between Jesus and Mohammed are the fact that both believe in monotheistic religion. They both believed in one God who is all powerful, infinite, and sovereign and is the ultimate judge. Both Christ and Mohammed believe in the Old Testament and acknowledge Abraham as the father of their nations and a man of God. Jesus believes Abraham was his father and it is through his son Isaac that Jesus comes from. The Muslims believe they are the descendants of Ishmael who was also a son of Abraham.
Echoing off what popular historian Michael Grant once said, Christianity and Islam are, “one of the few revolutions in the world’s history that have lasted” (Nardo, 1999, p. 12).Christianity and Islam are currently the world’s two largest religions. At first glance, Islam and Christianity appear to be very different. However, these two religious movements share similar origin, concepts and values. It is important to note now that Christianity and Islam share similarities mostly because they were both technically derived from Judaism. In fact the Hebrew Yahweh of the Old Testament is the same God/Allah that Christians and Muslims worship.
Christianity, Judaism, and Islam 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.
