On the surface, Islam and Christianity appear to have very little in common, however, as you get deeper into areas such as rituals, beliefs, ethics, founders, and sacred objects, the two show strong mutual similarities, particularly in the fundamental areas, while being totally different. In this essay I will compare and contrast many of the facets that make up the worlds largest and most recognized religions, Christianity and Islam. The word Islam means "surrender" or "submission," submission to the will of Allah, the one God. Muslims are those who have submitted themselves. The basic creed of Islam is brief: There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. Islam teaches that there is one God, the creator and sustainer of the universe. This God, Allah, is compassionate and just. Because He is compassionate, He calls all people to believe in Him and worship Him. Because He is also just, on the Last Day He will judge every person according to his deeds. On the Last Day, all the dead will be resurrected and either rewarded with heaven or punished with hell. In Christianity one of the Ten Commandments states that "I am the Lord thy God.....thou shalt have no other gods before me". Also, identical to Islam, God is considered the creator of the universe, and he is also just. On the last day, or judgment day, the same holds true as in Islam in the Christian beliefs, the dead will be resurrected and either rewarded with heaven or punished with hell. In Islam, God sent prophets to communicate His will. These prophets, all mortal men, were elected messengers to whom God spoke through an angel or by inspiration, identical to Christianity, an example of that was God sending Moses to free his people out of Pharaohs hands. In Islam, they also believe in forgiveness, another basic Christian principle, Islam teaches that God is always ready to pardon the individual
There are hundreds of religions throughout the world but the two most examined seem to be Christianity and Islam. These two religions have been brought into the spotlight throughout the years but more recently so with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. People speculate on rumors of each religion but how much do we actually know? Unless you are a religious scholar, odds are you do not know any more than what the internet and television tell you. Each religion has its own view on creation, the end times….

Christianity vs. Islam
Two of the largest religions in the world today didn’t just get this way overnight. Both these religions emerged throughout time and spread in various ways. Christianity existed several centuries prior to the birth of Islam, and by the time Muhammad founded Islam in the Middle East, Christianity had moved its center to Europe, where it had firmly established itself as the official religion. But Christianity originally sprouted in the Middle East after Christ's resurrection….

Islam Versus Christianity
By Yvonne Perry
There are a vast number of religions in the world each having its own unique
characteristics that identify it. As with Islam and Christianity, the present character of a religion
may differ from its original composition. By looking at the founders, one is able to view a
particular religion with a perception more accurate to its original format. This point-by-point
research paper will attempt to compare and contrast the founders of two monotheistic religions;….
According to Islam, despite man’s fall, there is still a bright future for him in the form of a movement from one stage to another, or else from one plane to another. Thus the Qur’an says: “Nay, I swear by the twilight, and by the night and all that it envelops, and by the moon when it is at the full, you shall move on from plane to plane (The Holy Qur’an 84:16-19).” Now it begs the question: how man will attend that stage or sphere when Islam rejects Jesus who brings Salvation to all men and the….

Are women treated better under the religion of Christianity or Islam? Both of them are similar in the sense that they follow a religious scripture, believe in a god, and have a history of treating women socially and culturally inferior. It can probably be safe to say that they are each as bad as the other. Even before a baby is born the parents already prefer it to be a boy. This can be interpreted from the phrase “….if a women have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean….
Christianity and Islam are the two largest religions in the world and they have many points of contact. Both inherited from Judaism a belief in one God who created the world and cares about the behavior and beliefs of human beings.
The Prophet Muhammad knew Christians in his lifetime and respected them along with Jews as "People of the Book." Because of their monotheism and roots in the revealed Jewish Bible, the Prophet and his successors extended conquered Christians (and Jews) more freedoms….
