Similarities between Judeo-Christian tradition and Islam
Islam and Christianity are known to share a lot of common ground. Both religions trace their ancestry to Abraham. Christianity and Islam both believe in prophecy and the prophets who were sent by Allah (Islam) and Jehovah (Christian) as God is refereed to in both religions. Islam and Christianity both believe in Gods messengers commonly referred to as the apostles, they also share a common believe regarding revelations of the almighty lord, share the same believe and doctrines regarding the resurrection of the dead. They also share common believe on the significance of the religious society. Both religions exhibit communitarian aspects, Christians refer to their religious gathering as a church while in Islam the same is referred to as umma (Kester, 2008).
Christianity, Islam and Judaism all originated from the Middle East region of the world. Generally Christianity and Islam are founded upon the principles of Judaism. Judaism was the first of the religions to come into existence. All the three religions are monotheistic in that they all believe in one God. They all embrace, believe and worship the same Lord, but do this in their own different ways. Monotheism was a doctrine which was passed down over the years from Abraham’s community of migrant herders known as Bedouin herders. Judaism originates from Abraham while Christianity and Islam attribute their origin to the sons of Abraham namely Ishmael who was Abraham’s first son with his concubine Hagar and Isaac who was Abraham’s son with his wife Sarah (Cliteur, 2010).
Judaism, Islam and Christianity are monotheistic religious groups which believe there is only but one God. The three doctrines all believe in the presence of only one God although the Christians believe in the concept of the holy trinity. The entire three religions share a common believes that God is the sole creator of the universe and every thing that exists beneath it. They believe that God care for everything that He created and wishes all well being. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism all strongly believe in the ideology of life eternal life after death. In this doctrines there is a general believe that irrespective of the past or present there exists life after death. They all believe that in all circumstances good will always prevail over evil. Despite the lack of agreement on the description of the future, al the three religions uphold that the end of the world will bring forth the unchallenged reign of God and unconditional bliss for all those who have faith and believe in the Lord. Both religions are united in the ideology of the doomsday. They uphold that the existence of this world is limited, but the irony is that man has no clue as to when the world will end. They believe that when the world finally ends God will reveal Himself to man, he shall come and conquered the earth and rescue humanity from the shackles of the devil also referred to as Satan. They also subscribe to the general believe that those who die believing in the Lord will be resurrected and ascend to heaven, while those who do not believe will be punished and eventually perish in hell (Kester, 2008).
Both Christianity and Islam acknowledge the existence of Jesus. Both religions strongly believe that He was born free of sin and that He was born of a Virgin Mary. It is generally accepted in both faiths that Jesus had the ability to perform miracles, He was persecuted and crucified and subsequently resurrected and ascended up to God. But there exists a slight difference in that Islam regards Jesus as a prophet while Christianity regards Him as the son of God or as God Himself. In all these three religions prayer is a critical part of belief and conduct. All the three religions believe that prayer is a form of communication through which their subscribers can communicate with their creator. All religions prescribe special times for conducting communal and individual prayers, whereby each individual is highly encouraged to follow. In Christianity and Islam they make use of praying aids which come in the form of beads commonly referred to as rosary and tasbih in Christianity and Islam respectively (Quran reading.com, 2009).
All the three religions share common belief about the creation of the universe and this is evident in the description provided in the Bible and the Quran. The trios also shares common moral codes of faith and always strive to enforce them in the daily conduct of their faithful. Such moral codes include; they believe that having faith without using it in practice is void, they prohibit their faithful from engaging in inhuman activities such as murder and violence, abstinence from adultery and fornication and oppose marriages of the same sex (Quran reading.com, 2009; Kester, 2008).
Islam, Christianity and Judaism are the oldest religions in the universe and despite sharing a lot of similarities they have been characterized by a lot of conflict in the ancient and recent times. It is about time that the clergy from the three religions should embrace each other and preach peaceful coexistence to their faithful’s. There is conflict because of generalized false information about the other religious groups. More efforts should be put in place to ensure that their follower get the appropriate knowledge about the other faiths. All religions need to appreciate and respect each other for peaceful coexistence.
