Qur'an explains the common words between us as follows:

Qur'an

[3.64]:"Say: 'People of the Book (Jews and Christians), let us come to a common word

between us and you that we will worship none except Allah (The God),

that we will associate none with Him, and that none of us take

others for lords besides Allah.'…"

Torah and Injil (Old and New testaments) also confirms Quran: {no they don't. UG}

Old Testament:

Deuteronomy 4:39: "... that the Lord He is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else"; Deuteronomy 6:4: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord", (Isaiah 43:10-11): "... that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour"; (Isaiah 44:6): "Thus saith the Lord ... I am the first, and I am the last, and beside Me there is no God"; (Isaiah 45:18): "For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God Himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else."

You should also read Deuteronomy 4:35; Exodus 8:10; II Samuel 7:22; I Kings 8:23; I Chronicles 17:20; Psalms 86:8, 89:6 and 113:5; Hosea 13:4; and Zechariah 14:9.

New Testament:

Mark 12:29, Jesus himself said: "And Jesus answered him: 'The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel: The Lord OUR God is one Lord."

I Corinthians 8:4: "... we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one"; (I Timothy 2:5): "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."

Muslims believe in Isa (The Arabic name of Jesus) and in Mary the virgin. But we don't believe that Jesus is God's son nor that he was crucified, instead God took him to the 4th sky where he is staying and that he'll return to earth, fight and kill the Antichrist, and live a normal life, die and be buried next to Mohamed in Mecca.

Islam also believes in Moses the starter of Judaism. and in a lot of other prophets sent to Jews.

Note that in Islam the god 'Allah' has no children or partners, so Moses and Jesus are just prophets of Allah {in your opinion} Muslims, Christians and Jews all trace their origins to the Prophet and Patriarch Abraham and their three prophets are direct descendants from Abraham's sons - Muhammad from the eldest, Ishmael, and Moses and Jesus from Isaac (peace be upon them all).

Muslims particularly respect and revere Jesus. They consider him one of the greatest of God's prophets and messengers. A Muslim never refers to him simply as "Jesus", but always adds the phrase "peace be upon him." The Qur'an confirms his virgin birth, and a special chapter of the Qur'an is entitled "Mary" in honor of the mother of Jesus.

Jesus was born miraculously through the same power that had brought Adan (peace be upon them both) into being without a father:

"Truly the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust and then said to him, 'Be!' and he was." (Qur'an 3:59)

During his prophetic mission, Jesus (peace be upon him) performed many miracles. The Qur'an tells us that he said:

"I have come to you with a sign from your Lord: I make for you out of clay a figure of a bird, and breathe into it and it becomes a bird by God's leave. And I heal the blind, and the lepers, and I raise the dead by God's leave." (Qur'an 3:49) {these are just fanciful stories}

Neither Muhammad nor Jesus (peace be upon them) came to change the basic doctrine of the belief in One God, brought by earlier prophets, but to confirm and renew it. {and in the case of Islam, twist it beyond all recognition} They all teach "Brotherly Love," but choose to ignore it. The Teacher becomes more important than the teachings. Islam (Quran) condemns Christians worshipping Jesus as the Son of God. The Quran even commands Muslims to fight Christians and Jews until they worship only the god Allah.

Quran:9.29 : Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Quran:9.30: The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

The Quran ridicules the concept of the Son of God in Christianity in suras

23:91, 37:151, 72:3, 112:1-4.

The commonality between the three religions from is Abraham. Abraham is the father of the Jewish nation. He is also claimed to be the father of the illegitimate son Ishmael. Mohammed is an Ishmaelite. Christians are also spiritual sons of Abraham because their religion originated in Judaism.

These religions are closely related as they are heavenly religions.

1. All believe in Almighty Allah (God): God- Allah is ONE Allah. There is no god but He. He and He alone deserves worship. He is All-Knowing, All-Seeing. All power lies in His Hands. He will punish the sinners and reward the Good. He is Eternal, Unique, and incorporeal. There is nothing like Him.

2. Belief in Angels Created by Almighty God- Allah Karim from light. They are obedient to Allah Karim. Carry out His commands. The Jews and Christians also believe in the Angels.

3. The Muslims believe in all heavenly books, including Tora, Zaboor, The Bible, the last one being the Qur'an. The Jews believe in Torah being the heavenly book given to Hazrat Moses (AS). The Christians believe in the Bible.

4. The Muslims believe in all the Messengers (Prophets May peace be upon them all) of Almighty Allah- No distinction among them. Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) being the last Prophet of Islam. NO Prophet after him.

5. The Jews consider Hazrat Moses (AS) the Greatest Prophet. The Muslims also consider Hazrat Moses (AS) one of the Greatest prophets. The holy Qur'an mentions him the most. The holy Qur'an mention Hazrat Marry (AS) and Hazrat Jesus Christ (AS) in many verses with great respect and honor. Hazrat Marry (AS) was Virgin, got pregnant miraculously and gave birth to Jesus Christ AS.

6. The Muslims The Christians and the Jews believe in the life after death, resurrection and the Day of Judgment. Almighty Allah Karim is the Sole Ruler/Master of that Day. He enjoys the absolute authority to send people to Heaven or Hell. The Christians believe that Hazrat Jesus Christ (A) will save them.

7. The Muslims and the Jews believe that good and bad Destiny being in the Hands of Almighty Allah. No One can change his destiny.

8. Life hereafter: All the dead will be raised again and judged according to their good or bad deeds. There will be no death to them.

9. Hell and Heaven (Paradise)

10. The Muslims and the Jews believe that Nobody can take the responsibility of some other person's deeds.

11. All the power of decision making is in the Hands of Almighty Allah, and none else.

12. The Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The Jews and the Muslims believe that attributing a Son, or Parents to God is the Greatest and Unpardonable sin.

13. The Jews believe that they successfully had Jesus crucified. The Christians also believe that Jesus was crucified and raised again.

14. The Muslims believe that the Jews tried to get Jesus (AS) crucified. The stakes were ready but Almighty God raised him alive to heavens and the person who got into the cell to take Jesus out was given the shape and form like Jesus and he was crucified. So the Jews and Christians are in doubt.

15. The Muslims believe that Jesus will come down from heavens before the last day. The Jews also wait for Messiah.

These religions are closely related as they are heavenly religions.

There is no question that Islam, like Christianity, was heavily influenced by Judaism, directly and indirectly. Very many concepts and quotes in the Qur'an (the book of Islam) are taken verbatim from the Torah, the Hebrew prophets, and later Jewish teachings. The Talmud was already recorded in writing by no later than 500 CE*, before the time of Muhammad, making it a simple matter to quote from it too.*(Footnote: as stated in the Encyclopedia Brittanica, under "Talmud and Midrash.")


Examples:

1) Qur'an:

"...Whoever killed a human being, except as punishment for murder or other villainy, shall be deemed as though he had killed all mankind; and whoever saved a human life shall be deemed as though he had saved all mankind."

Judaism:

"Whoever kills a single individual it is considered that he has slain the entire world, but he who preserves the life of a single individual it is counted as if he has preserved the whole world." Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:5.


2) Qur'an:

The famous narrative of how the young Abraham smashed his father's idols -


Judaism:

- is taken from the Jewish midrash (Genesis Rabbah 38:11-13).


3) The following Hebrew-Bible characters are found in parallel Qur'an-narratives:

Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Jethro, David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Zachariah, and Job.


4) Arthur Jeffery writes in "The Foreign Vocabulary of the Quran", in page 1 of the introduction:

"One of the distinct impressions gleaned from a first perusal of the Quran, is that of the amount of material which is borrowed from the religions that were active in Arabia at the time when the Quran was in process of formation. It is plain that Muhammad drew his inspiration not from the religious life and experiences of his own land and his own people, but from the great monotheistic religions which were pressing down into Arabia in his day."


5) Charles Torrey in "The Jewish Foundation of Islam", writes on page 43:

"It was at home, not abroad, that the Muhammad received the Biblical and Haggadic narratives which occupy so large a part of the Koran."
