Something I found interesting was learning the differences and similarities between Islam and Christianity. These two religions aren’t simply mainstream, yet fundamentally similar. They are both monotheistic religions, meaning that they believe in just a single God. Both draw upon the legends of the Bible as the start of their religions. Both Christianity and Islam are Abrahamic religions, implying that the two of them believe that the prophet Abraham was one of the first founders of the religion itself. Another similarity between Christianity and Islam is that both have a sacred book that they use to practice their religion and better comprehend their concept of God. One big distinction between Christianity and Islam that I found interesting is the idea of God. Muslims refer to God as Allah and trust that Allah made all of existence. Christianity teaches that God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to save all of humankind, and just by believing in him, you will be accepted into Heaven. Islam teaches that salvation comes to one who obeys Allah. They also believe that they receive salvation if their good deeds outweigh the bad and they try mirroring what Muhammad did in hopes that it will be enough to get into heaven.
Something I wonder about is how the stories of the prophets in Islam compare with those in Christianity and Judaism?
