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. Muslims believe that Allah will judge everyone in the afterlife based on whether or not they had a good belief system, and whether they fulfilled their obligations to Islam. Muslims are obligated to do the
3.The Question of Meaning/Purpose-A Muslims purpose is to submit to Allah. They only believe that Allah's guidance is the only guidance as it has been told in the Holy Quran(Sura 6:71). They Believe that the Bible is correct that it has been corrupted and The prophet Muhammad was use by God to be the Last prophet to communicate his plan to mankind
Christians and Muslims believe all humans are born sinless, but human weakness leads to sin. Both faiths teach that one must seek out forgiveness from God through prayer. Muslims have a requirement to pray five times a day and Christians have no set amount of prayers. Christianity and Islam both give us the knowledge to know right from wrong, both gives us the choice to live the right way. Muslims believe in the Day of Judgment, heaven and hell just as they do in Christianity.
Essay: Conformity and Rebellion 2/27/2012 Answering #7 (pg. 521): Many works in this section deal explicitly with the relationship between individuals and religion. What similarities do you find among them? What differences? Writing Topic: Compare and contrast the way that relationship is perceived in Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery,” J. D. McClatchy’s “Jihad,” and Salman Rushdie’s “Imagine There’s No Heaven.” It can be said that religion is a part of every person’s life.
Islam, the youngest religion in all three, was founded by Muhammad. In Islam, Muhammad is the last and the greatest prophet of the God and received revelations from the God.

Mormons payers are ways of communicating with God. Comparing and contrasting the Islamic to the Mormon, both claims Prophets revealing the book are the guideline for their beliefs Qur’an and The Book of Mormon.

Again, what similarities would affect your choice? Let us examine these three monotheistic religions which are based on faith in God. Judaism believes there is one God who cannot be made up of parts. To attempt to divide God's oneness is seen as a pagan throwback to many gods. Islam embraces an immaterial, invisible God -- one
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 crucifixion and resurrection are not part of their texts. Now, because of the opposing views on the two different religions, Muslims and Christians have been in disagreement for many, many years.

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.
In the light of all we have seen the Scriptures teach to this point, can we argue that if we were able to save another's life from an attacker by shooting the attacker with our gun that we should "turn the other cheek instead?"
