As I begin this week’s post, let me say that religious diversity is essential to us as a people. So, saying, I can touch on a few things. I was raised in the Catholic faith, but I am now Christian. As I grew older, it was a better fit for my beliefs. My husband was Muslim, and he was of the Islamic faith. We had many differences in our beliefs, but we were always able to come together to believe in God. Christianity and Islam have more in common than most people know — they are both monotheistic Abrahamic religions. Jesus Christ is an important, revered figure in both religions. Followers of Christianity — called Christians — believe in the Holy Trinity, that Christ, the son of God, walked the earth as the incarnate form of God (“the Father”). According to Jennifer Malcolm (2020), most Christians also believe Christ will return at the end of the world. Muslims consider Jesus Christ a prophet, the messenger of God, and a messiah. The difference is that they believe Muhammad was the last prophet of God, that he recorded the word of God as it was given in the Quran.

Christianity was born in Judea, a Roman province. Islam was born in Mecca at Mount Hira, on the Arabian Peninsula. Christianity belongs to the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, but in Islam, images of God are not allowed. Muslims are different than most religions in that they do not draw lifelike human works, lest such things are taken as idolatry. There are no images used to represent God, though there are often images of Jesus throughout Christianity. These two religions also have different practices. In Christianity, prayer is standard, though most people use a Church for their worship. Some branches of Christianity follow the use of sacraments. In Islam, there are five pillars of faith. The first step, the first pillar, is that there is one God, that Muhammad is his prophet. The words are something like “There is no God but God…” (Malcolm, 2020)

Muslims typically pray five times a day, fast during Ramadan, and most will make their pilgrimage, their Hajj, to Mecca. Both religions have charity in common. For those of the Muslim faith, this is called zakat. In both religions, you will be judged by God on the Day of Judgement. For both religions, there is only one God. These religions differ, and yet they have a great deal in common. As with all religions, faith is essential.
