The three great western religions---- Judaism, Islam and Christianity, share similarities and differences. Even though they have the common roots and common elements, differences emerged when these three religion grew. However, Judaism, Islam and Christianity stand out as the main religions in the world and their believes cover all over the continents, influence billions of believers in the world.

The revelations that Muhammad received are now considered to pivotal text included within the Islamic Qur’an (Islamic bible). It is important to note when trying to understand Islam, that around 631 A.D. Muhammad was able to enter into the city of Mecca and convert all the Arabic tribes to Islam. Islam and Christianity are similar in many ways, however the main difference in the religions lies in their beliefs that God is singular, Jesus was just a prophet, Jesus was not crucified, heaven can be obtained by the works of man (doing good deeds, or bad deeds), and the concept of Trinity is unconceivable.

Similarities and differences are found in these empires through religious, economical, and governmental factors. The first and most important factor to look at when comparing the two empires is their differences and similarities is the empires’ outlook on religion. One common similarity both groups shared was how they based their life off a monotheistic religion. The Byzantines ran their empire through Christianity, a belief based off the teachings and life of Jesus Christ, and the thought that there is only one true God. The Caliphates were influenced by Islam, a religion that believes there is only one God named Allah, and Muhammad is His prophet.
He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, which ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord”. Islam and Christianity take a monotheistic (belief in one GOD) approach when it comes to religion. Muslims recognize Allah as the Creator and Christians recognize GOD as the Creator. Both religions believe that human beings have the ability (free will) to choose between good and evil. Another eye opener for me is that Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary and at the end of the world, Jesus Christ will come again.
Jesus is acknowledged by the Islamic faith as a prophet. They do not believe that Jesus was executed, but rather taken away from the situation by God, or Allah, before any harm was done.

The main disagreement being that Christians believe that all men are created equal and Muslims believe that they are the chosen ones and all others are considered infidels.
Mormons payers are ways of communicating with God.

CHRISTIANITY VS. JUDAISM Christianity and Judaism are religions that are each very unique. Although they both have plenty of differences, they also have similarities. In fact they probably have more in common than some of the other major religions in the world, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam. Although both Christians and Jews believe God to be their creator and controller; Judaism has no founder, as opposed to Christianity whose founder was Jesus Christ. In Christianity it is believed that Jesus Christ was the savior to all humanity and was sent to Earth by his father (God) to pay for the sins of all mankind.
Muslims believe that god is one while most Christians believe that God is three persons in one and most Jews believe that Aliazer is the son of god.
