Muslims believe Jesus never had to suffer crucifixion, but a man who looked similar to Jesus did, while Jesus was ascended to Heaven and is alive until this day. Furthermore, regarding the natural state of humanity, Christianity preaches the idea of Original Sin, where everyone is born a sinner, because they are carrying the burden of the first humans on Earth, Adam and Eve whilst Islam has a distinctly different way of addressing this issue. Muslims believe that every human is born good and pure, and in a state of submission to Allah. These two religions, commonly used for topics of debates, have a range of enlightening similarities and differences and writing this essay has helped me to educate myself properly so it is easier to
Islam spread so quickly because of the message the message it was so strong to spread so quickly ( Document B). Islam spread so quickly because of the message, military conquest ,trade, the political structure. THE MESSAGE The main reason that Islam spread was the the message because the message so strong that people want to follow it and let the army win because man and woman will go to paradise if they fought their religion. My first evidence for the message is that the army and people believe the message because it was strong. (Document E).
An act of worship must obey these two circumstances: Firstly, it must conform to the orders of Allah’s Law as found in the Quran and Sunnah. However, Allah commands his messenger (peace be upon him) with the subsequent: Say (O Muhammad): “If you love Allah, then obey me. Then Allah will love you.” Secondly, it must be performed merely for Allah’s sake, there should be no other
The verse that binds a person to Islam and triggers the rebirth of him as a Muslim is it itself conclusive enough to set the priority of a believer. Allah is the one and only god and that is the first thing a person brings faith upon, and that is the one thing, if overlooked or violated; renders the person a non-Muslim. The act of staining the belief in the oneness of Allah is known as “shirk”. It can be understood through the word polytheism, which refers to worshipping other beings or objects along with Allah. Vastly it implies attributing divine characteristics to any other besides Allah and associating partners in worship with Allah.
D. with astonishing similarities to Christianity. Muslims believe that Muhammad was called by Allah (God) to be a messenger of his words, much like the figures of Jesus and Abraham. Islamic culture uses the Qur 'an as Christians and Jews use the Bible and Torah. The literature, architecture, philosophy, artworks, and music that derived from these religions through their civilizations richly reflect the teachings and tradition behind these spiritual views of the world (Sayre). The three major books, the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Bible, and the Qur’an, all contain scripture recorded by followers inspired by
Islam is the second biggest religion and fastest growing in the world today. Islam is a religion that Muslims follow and is a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the prophet of Allah. For Muslims, Muhammad is the last prophet and Abraham is the patriarch of the Qur’an, Bible and Torah. Islam is followed by over a billion people and Muslims make up approximately one quarter of the world’s population. Islam spread quickly during the 600’s trade, choice, and conquest.
The speech of Urban II at Clermont in 1095 was the special moment, when he promised and guaranteed that any person who will join to the campaign would get Holy land and place in heaven. At that time believe in God and Holy land was very popular, so Urban II mostly affected on moral of the people. The effect was stunning; people from all parts of Western Europe started to think that moving to Jerusalem is their duty. Actually the main purpose of Urban II was to unite all Christians in Europe and to achieve his aim completely he reminded people that their lands are poor, while Muslims live in Holy lands under good conditions. Citizens were now strongly motivated and ready to invade irreligious opponents.
Some worship leader, others obey, others hate and dream to overthrow him. (Mishal, Rosenthal 2005, pp. 276-279). Bin laden became the leader of the Islamic nation. He became a noble man and hero to many, which allowed him to relocate easily and even seek asylum in other countries.
Throughout their empire, giving gifts became a regular practice for securing the empire. “There was established a system of stipends or direct salary payments (ata-’) to warriors serving in the Islamic armies.” (Document C, Excerpt from Fred Donner, The Early Islamic Conquests, 1981). People who cooperated with the Muslims, like the Persians, were also given stipends as long as they embraced Islam. By having this trade, it encouraged people to convert because they benefited economically as well as learning the traditions of Islam. However, it wasn’t only money that made Islam spread so quickly, it was also because information spread rapidly since people were so open to learning and discovery.
Additionally, another similarity between Jesus Christ and Muhammad’s teachings, is that those they taught had recorded the words, teachings, and experiences of both religious figures, that were turned into scripture that is considered to be the word of God and studied by billions of people around the world today. Both religious figures were the same in that they grew up in poverty, a very basic humble upbringing, they also lived a life of persecution for their beliefs. Muhammad, like Jesus, respected women even though the culture at the time did not. Chatting with Ahmad, he explains what Muhammad teaches Muslims, he teaches about Islam, to worship God alone, and also that Islam enjoins good characteristics such as truthfulness, patience, deliberation, kindness, humility, modesty, keeping promises, dignity, mercy, justice, courage, patience, friendliness, contentment, chastity, good treatment, tolerance, trustworthiness, gratitude for favors, and self-control
