Many books, articles and programs have been produced to make the comparison between these two great religions. Now, see for yourself what each of the texts say and how they compare:
|Allah (God Almighty) is the only Creator of all that exists.||God Almighty is the only Creator of all that exists. (Gen. 1:1)|
|There is one God (Allah). Jesus is the Christ, miracle birth- and Muhammad (p) is his last prophet, both of them said, "God is One and you have to serve Him with all your heart, mind and strength.||There is one God. He exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (There is no "Trinity" in the Bible)|
|Allah reveals His 99 Divine Attributes and does not compare Himself to any of His creation.||God has revealed Himself as "One God" and "One Lord" (Deuteronomy 6:3; Mark 12:29)|
|Allah created man from dirt and "in His image" and of "His spirit," yet God has no likeness of anything in creation.||God created man from dirt and the image of God (Genesis 1)|
God Forgives Adam and Eve after they repent. Then He makes Adam his deputy (caliph) and the first prophet.
|Adam and Eve sinned and thus brought sin into the world and their sins passed on to their children. (Genesis 3:1-7)|
|All children are born sinless and blameless for any sins committed by their parents or forefathers.||Original Sin - all of Adam's posterity are born with a sin nature and are sinful from birth (Romans 3:22-23, 1st John 1:10)|
|Man is basically good but prone to mistakes. Muslims who repent and submit to God are forgiven without intercession from Christ (or anyone) needed.||Man is by nature sinful and has need for redemption by the atonement of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:6, 8:32, Colossians 1:19-20, Hebrews 7:26-27, 9:26, 10:12, 1st John 4:10)|
Through submission to the Will of God in peace, anyone, anytime, any place becomes a servant of Allah and draw closer to Him.
|Through the work of Christ, God adopts Christians into His family and calls them His children (Romans 8:14-15, Ephesians 1:5, Galatians 4:5)|
Allah is not like His creation. He is neither male nor female, nor is creation like Him.
Bible says; "God is not a man... not the son of man.." (Numbers 19:23) (Do other places contradicts this?)
|God (Allah) does not forgive anyone making worship to other gods beside Him, but anything less than this He can forgive. (Quran 4:48)||Thou shall not have any other gods beside Me. (Bible, Exodus 20)|
