What do Muslims believe compared to that of Christians? I mean.....What is the difference in beliefs?

Just curious. A friend of mine converted to Muslim and she said that it is no different than that of being a Christian. Is that true or false?

  • Why don't you join muslim moms group on here and ask in there. You will get answers directly from muslims.

    but.. Muslims we believe one should only worship the Creator. We beleive Jesus is the Messiah whom the Jews awaited however they rejected him. We beleive God sent the Angel to Virgin Mary and it was Through God's word be that Jesus was created just like Adam was. We believe That GOD is not like the creation and the creation is not like God. We believe that jesus is also a prophet of God, like Noah, Abraham, David, Moses and Mohammad. We do not believe God has any children and he does not have any sons. Therefore we do not beleive Jesus to be the son of God. He is the son of Mary without a father. We also believe Jesus will return to earth to fight the anti christ. Our entire religion is to believe in the creator , worship him and live our lives according to him. for more.. you can join muslim mom group on cm.

  • well the most important difference in islam (religion that muslims follow) is that they don't believe in the trinity (God, Son of God and Holy Trinity)....they believe in the one and only God.

  • Quickie answer - Christianity is about what Jesus did on the cross. He died for our sins. He is the Son of God, born of a virgin, who died on the cross for the sins of all and rose again 3 days later and now sits at the right hand of the Father God. He sent the Holy Spirit . The only way to God is through His Son Jesus. The only way to eternal life is by believing in Jesus and accepting Him as your personal Savior.

    Muslims do not believe in the above and that is the only difference that really matters.

  • The fundamentals or core of the beliefs are the same, "Love God, love your fellow man, etc. " And the God they believe in is the same. What varies is the specific tenants of the belief. The only other major difference which sets them apart from Christians is their view of Christ. They do not see him as the "son of God" or "god in the flesh" but rather a prophet of God.

  • Christians know that God came in the flesh, Muslims God did not. So you see it is not the same.

  • It's the same God. The two groups merely disagree on certain "happenings".

    They are not the same God. Let's say I am looking for a Kristi with a child.....but you find a Kristi with no children...is it the same Kristi? No. It's not the same Kristi. It's not that hard to understand. I think you just get off on going against Christians that say they're not the same.

  • I agree with Kristi. They trace their God back to the God of Abraham. But they don't believe in the Trinity and they don't believe that Jesus is God. So in that sense their concept of God is different than a mainstream Christian.

  • Yeah I was referring to the whole "God in the flesh thing". Afterall doesn't the Bible consider us all God's Children? In which case the "Son of God" comment isn't even relevant unless taken literally. Thus making the God the same.
    Haven't your children's friends ever called you "Mom" before?

  • No, allah of Islam is NOT the same God Christians worship. That's what they want you to believe, but it's just not true! The word for "God" in Arabic is "Allah" (that's the argument they use), but there are fundamental differences in their god, and God of the Bible. What religion you are isn't going to amount to a hill of beans when you stand before God on judgment day...the ONLY question He will ask is "What did you do with Jesus Christ?" Jesus told His disciples, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me."
