Muhammad and Jesus of Nazareth are two of the most religiously influential people of the world today. Their impact and contributions to the religions of Islam and Christianity has affected many aspects of our everyday lives; for some this impact is direct and for others the repercussions of their impact is indirect. To say these two men were mere contributors says very little of their livelihood, they were religious leaders, messengers, and teachers of two of the largest and oldest religions still in practice. As we know, these two men were mission by God; the interpretation of their mission is what leads their cause in disparate paths. Jesus is known by the devout Christians followers as the son of God, the messiah, and is worthy of worship. Muhammad is believe by devout Muslims as the last prophet mission by Allah, and his message or instructions to his followers were delivered directly to him by Allah through the angel Gabriel. The purpose of my paper is to demonstrate my knowledge of both the religion of Islam and Christianity through comparison and contrasting the lives and history of Muhammad and Jesus of Nazareth. Within this paper I will discuss the impact of the deaths of both Muhammad and Jesus and its affect on their perspective religions, describe the manner in which each individual was or still is worshipped and provide insight as to how their messages are being carried out in the world today.
