Islam was founded in Mecca, Saudi Arabia by the Prophet Adam. Like Islam, Judaism is also the belief in one God who they call Jehovah. It originated in the nation of Hebrews from which God gave the Torah to Moses and Abraham. Both of these Religions refuse the use of any statues or pictures because you can’t depict the image of prophets and God. Also Islam and Judaism believe in eternal life in Paradise or Hell depending on the good deeds you do in your life on earth.
The prophet Abrahams was considered the first Jew to establish an agreement with God. The Ancient monotheistic religion believes that Judaism is an ethical way of life. Armed with their fundamental text known as the Hebrew Bible( The Toran), the Jews concentrated on living a moral life. The Jewish people believe that God cannot be made up of three parts because that would constitute as several Gods. The Jewish people do not believe in any prophets after their prophets, and that would include Jesus and Mohammad.
| One God (Arabic: Allah), who is not a trinity. The Islamic view of God is called strict Monotheism (Quran 112:1). | One God (known in English as 'Yahweh' or 'Jehovah') - "...Hear Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one." (Deuteronomy 6:4). | Holy Book(s) | The Bible (from the Greek:Biblos, 'books'), given by God to man.
The oneness of God, the prophethood of Muhammad, and the concept of life postmortem are the rudimental articles of its faith. They are predicated on reason and sound logic. All of the teachings of Islam flow from those basic beliefs and are simple and straightforward. There is no hierarchy of priests, no farfetched abstractions, no perplexed rites or rituals. 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.
Similarities between the Bible and the Koran According to both the Holy Koran and the Holy Bible, there is only one God. Therefore, it is a sin to worship other gods in both religions. The oneness of God is repeatedly emphasized in the Quran. The book of Asad 16:51 states that Muslims should not worship two or more deities because there is only one God. These teachings are parallel to the teachings in the Bible.
In Galatians 3:15-18, Paul argues that a new covenant does not void previously made promises of God. He uses the example of God’s covenant with Abraham. Paul asks his Jewish audience if since God also established a covenant with Moses, does it make the old covenant of Abraham irrelevant. “My point is this: the law: which came four hundred thirty years later does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise. For if the inheritance comes from the law, it no longer comes from the promise; but God granted it to Abraham through the promise2 With the new covenant formed by the coming and death of Jesus, Gentiles are now allowed to be saved and be justified just as the Jews were.

The Ontario Consultants (2008) Web site, Messianic Jews believe in the Messiah, the trinity, salvation and sin; which differs greatly from traditional Jews that believe the Messiah has yet to come. Messianic Judaism followers believe in the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, the virgin birth of Yeshua, his sinless life, his resurrection, his future Second Coming, and his salvation, which makes them Christians not Jews. The History of Messianic Judaism goes back as far as the First Century CE (Ontario Consultants, 2008). In the First Century, there were numerous sects of Judaism; Pharisees, Sadducees, Zealots, Boethusians, Essenes, and the list could go on and on. The First Christians were called Nazarenes, which were Jews that listened to the message that Yeshua of Nazareth was teaching and began to follow his word.
Islam vs. Christianity Islam is similar to Christianity, both believe that: - There is only one God. He is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. - God sent prophets such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Joseph, John the Baptist, Jesus, etc. - People should follow the Ten Commandments and the moral teachings of the prophets. - Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a virgin; therefore Jesus was born miraculously.
A similarity between Christianity and Islam is that Abraham is an important leader in both of their religion. In Christianity Abraham is considered the father of the fellow people of Israel. In Islam Abraham is considered a prophet of Islam and the ancestor of Muhammad through his other son Ishmael. There are a lot of similarities between the two religions, but both are still very different. There are a lot of comparisons between Christianity and Islam.
