Islam is one of the newest religions. Islam was founded around the year 622 (Nosotro). Muslims (people who follow Islam) follow a book of laws called the Koran (or Quran), while the book the Jews follow is the Torah. The laws are very strict, and there are consequences for those who do not follow them. There are five major obligations for Muslims: testimony of faith, prayer, giving zakat, fasting in the month of Ramadan, and the pilgrimage to the Mecca.
The Jewish holy book is called the Torah, which is the written law of God's instructions. Jews believe that the Torah was given to the Prophet Moses. It teaches Jews how to act with moral behaviors, think, and even feel about life and death. Christianity, which has roots in Judaism, also believes that the Ten Commandments are the primary set of laws as well. Followers of the Christian faith believe that Jesus is the Messiah, so it's doctrine is based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
“Islam, which in Arabic means submission to God or Allah” (Religion of Islam), is the youngest known religion of the world. Islam, a monotheistic religion and one of the largest originated from, the teachings of the prophet Muhammad, who received the Holy Scriptures of Islam. The Quran is The Muslim bible form Allah (God) given by an angel to Muhammad. Christianity is the largest religion in the world. The Christian religion is a monotheistic religion that is based on the life of God’s son and Prophet Jesus.
World peace is obviously on a larger, global scale. Umma, people of the Islamic community, see themselves as one community no matter where in the world. They believe that there can be no world peace (or the Lesser Jihad) without the Greater Jihad. Inner peace is very important and there is always a great need for it. Inner peace is what makes people strong and without it they lose courage to face difficulties.
J.J.Catchings Mr. Tucker 10-28-10 5th Comparing & Contrasting: Christianity & Islam There are a lot of similarities between the two religions Christianity and Islam. Religions are beliefs, service, and worship in a god or gods. Religious views can affect your way of life, personality, and thought process. Christianity is one of the world’s largest religions; it is based on the teachings and miracles of Jesus. Islam is also one of the world’s largest religions; it is the teaching that one can find peace in one’s life by submitting to god in soul, heart, and deed.
They also believe that angels take your spirit at the time of your death. The Qur’an is the Muslim equivalent to the Bible. The Qur’an was said to be written by Muhammad and the verses were revealed to him by the archangel Gabriel. The Qur’an is more about moral issues than legal instruction. The book contains 114 chapters with a total of 6,236 verses.
This is known as Salah, through which, one creates a spiritual link with Allah through reciting His words during prayer. It is imperative for a Muslim to practice perfecting their pronunciation of the Quran, also known as Tajwid. Arabic is very cutthroat when it comes to Tajwid because of the fact that the mispronunciation of one letter can distort the entire meaning of the word. The utter importance of orality in the Quran can be seen through the rules of Tajwid, the traditional custom of memorizing the Quran, and the aesthetic reception of its verses. Tajwid is the set of rules that one follows when properly pronouncing the letters of the Quran.
I found the practical sections of this book to be extremely helpful. For instance, when Brooks explains the benefit of asking the “so what” question of the good news text, I was motivated to look at a few of my sermons that had already been preached and ask the “so what” question of the text. Brooks is clear that the Bible is the foundation of preaching. This statement as she points out may seem to be one that there is agreement with among preachers, however as is pointed out there are those who believe that good news may come from other sources. It has been my experience in hearing sermons that the Bible is the source of the good news that is proclaimed.
Christianity and Islam make up the two most popular of all religions. These three faiths all trace their history to the biblical story of Abraham and its one of their many shared characteristics. But, it is not how they are the same but how they are different that makes them what they are. Christianity is the worlds leading religion with more than two billion followers (Christianity). It is classified as an Abrahamic religion (along with Judaism and Islam) because it began with the story of Abraham.
