Well they all believe in one God. Islam accepts Jesus and Moses asprophets. All of them have many adherents. They all have holybooks. They have prophets and 1 God.
Christianity teaches that we should love all people, and do good to all people, regardless of their belief or unbelief. The Koran says "Slay them wherever you find them...Idolatry is worse than carnage...Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God's religion reigns supreme." (Surah 2:190-) …and "Seek out your enemies relentlessly." (Surah 4:103-) and "Believers, take neither Jews nor Christians for your friends." (Surah 5:51) and "Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God's religion shall reign supreme." (Surah 8:36-) and "...make war on the leaders of unbelief...Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them..." (Surah 9:12-) and "Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]...until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued." (Surah 9:27-) and "Prophet make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal rigorously with them. Hell shall be their home." (Surah 9:73). There are other such examples of this teaching in the Koran, and history has shown that zealous Moslems do believe in fighting and killing those who do not share their faith. Of course not all modern Moslems believe nor act this way. There are plenty of Moslems who believe in allowing other people to make their own decisions about faith. But their own Koran teaches otherwise. Besides the point within the Bible, let's look at what happened in history! Christians mass murder Jews through Holocaust. Christians mass murder Muslims through Crusades. Christians killing the people who did not convert to Christianity in Africa, South America, Asia, and North America. Everything the Christians have done to "love everyone" was to Convert or Die. Doesn't seem too tolerant to me. The Quran (and all other Holy Books of all faiths) teaches tolerance; There is no compulsion in religion. 2:256, It is wrong to oppress people 42:42. Live peacefully with disbelievers. 43:88-89 . Let each person believe (or disbelieve) whatever he or she wishes. 109:1, 6. For balance, (the first poster wrote only of the Quran) here's some of what the Bible teaches in intolerance. "the children of the kingdom [the Jews] shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."Matthew 8:12 Jesus tells his disciples to keep away from the Gentiles and Samaritans, and go only to the Israelites. Matthew 10:5-6 Cities that neither "receive" the disciples nor "hear" their words will be destroyed by God. It will be worse for them than for Sodom and Gomorrah. (see Genesis 19:24). Matthew 10:14-15 Any city that doesn't "receive" the followers of Jesus will be destroyed in a manner even more savage than that of Sodom and Gomorrah. Mark 6:11 Jesus says that those that believe and are baptized will be saved, while those who don't will be damned. Mark 16:16 Jesus says that entire cities will be violently destroyed and the inhabitants "thrust down to hell" for not "receiving" his disciples.Luke 10:10-15 The "wrath of God" is on all unbelievers.John 3:36 Opinion; It's the Zealots (of any religion) that is intolerant of disbelievers.

Muhammad preached tolerance for Christians and Jews as People ofthe Book because they recognize the God of Abraham as the one andonly god. Another reason is that Christians and Jews practicefaiths that have been revealed through divine ordinances.

Answer A Muslims view Jews and Christians as the 'people of the book' that means holders of God holy books; the Torah and the Bible respectively. Prophet called Jews and Christians to agree with Muslims that not to worship except the one and only one god with no partner, no companion, no son, and …no associate. Quran called Muslims to be kind, peaceful, and cooperative with Jews and Christians who don't attack them or expel Muslims from homes and/or religion. In Islamic countries, Jews and Christians have rights and commitments as Muslims and are not required to convert to Islam as some other non Muslim countries were doing in some centuries ago. Refer to related question below. God says in the Quran about the People of the Book (meaning English translations): . Not all of them are alike: Of the People of the Book are a portion that stand (For the right): They rehearse the Signs of Allah all night long, and they prostrate themselves in adoration. They believe in Allah and the Last Day; they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong; and they hasten (in emulation) in (all) good works: They are in the ranks of the righteous. Of the good that they do, nothing will be rejected of them; for Allah knoweth well those that do right. [Qur'an 03:113] . And there are, certainly, among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), those who believe in God and in that which has been revealed to you, and in that which has been revealed to them, humbling themselves before God. They do not sell the Verses of God for a little price, for them is a reward with their Lord. Surely, God is Swift in account. [Qur'an 03:199]. Verily! Those who believe and those who are Jews and Christians, and Sabians, whoever believes in God and the Last Day and do righteous good deeds shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve . [Qur'an 2:62] . And do not dispute with the followers of the Book except by what is best, except those of them who act unjustly, and say: We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you, and our God and your God is One, and to Him do we submit. [Qur'an 29:46]. ( Full Answer )
In reality, there really is no similarity or connection to best describe the Judeo-Christian beliefs of God to the Muslim Islamic belief. Judaism and Christianity have the Old Testament in common. Islam believes both Old Testament and New Testament have been partially corrupted in transmission while… the Koran is believed by Muslims to be the final and infallible revelation of God's will. Though Muslims believe in God which they call Allah, Islam teaches that Allah is all-powerful, sovereign and 'unknowable' while Judaism and Christianity both teach the Creator God to be revealed as merciful, compassionate and knowable (see Jeremiah 9:24 and John 17:3). The Christian text teaches the God of the Old Testament was the Word and it was He who Abraham and the other patriarchs and prophets worshiped. Islam teaches the Word, aka Jesus 'as one of perhaps 124,000 messengers of prophets Allah has sent and is one of the 25 listed in the Koran - but He is not the redeemer' (Marvin Olasky, "Islam vs. Liberty," World, Sept 10, 2011).Lastly, the Quran never presents Allah as a god of love. Conversely, for the Jews and Christians, God keeps His covenant of love forever (see Deuteronomy 7:9 and 1 John 4:7-16) In short, God is love . All in all, there are more differences and conflicts between the Judeo-Christian texts and the Muslim text, as well as how the Koran conflicts with secular history. ( Full Answer )
Shortly after the death of Mohammed, (Circa AD 700) Muslims developed a theology that permitted forced conversion (by the sword). A couple of Muslim Warlords used that to legitimize their conquest of ,first Christian lands, and then of Israel.
Answer 1 Yes.. Even in so many Muslims countries like Pakistan and Malaysiaevery one is free to keep his own faith and follow his ownReligion. Answer 2 It depends on the country in question.

The building for ritual praying worship is called: . Synagogue (sometimes Temple) for Jews . Church for Christians . Mosque (or Masjid/Jame'a) for Muslims
They all worship same God. They are all have the same morals in dealing with members of their community. They are all commanded to do for the benefit of their families, neighbours, relatives, communities, countries, humanity, and nature. They are all commanded to be kind, forgiving, and cooperative.… Muslims, Jews, and Christians all believe in the same god. All at least partially derive their beliefs from the Old Testament of the Bible (Torah to Jews and Taurat to Muslims). Muslim women wear headscarves as part of a tradition of modesty started by Jewish women. All three of these religions began in southwest Asia (commonly know as the Middle East). All ethnicities and races who practice these religions believe their origins to lie in the blood line of Abraham (Ibrahim in Arabic). All three religions observe a sacred time around December (Hanukkah, Ramadan, and Christmas). they are all human and believe in God, in other words, they all believe in only one god They all believe in one god. also, they only believe that they will see god on judgement day. thank you :) They all (basically) worship the same God, despite their different names. Islam shares some similar dietary rules with Judaism and is also a monotheistic religion. In regard to Islam and Christianity, they share the concepts of heaven and hell, and the devil. They all were given Holy books through a prophet.They all started of true but as Christianity and Judaism passed down they made changes to their books.That is why they are no longer true.Islam stayed as is.Muslims memorized their book The Quraan from it was reveald and passed it down trough memorization and books so it could not be changed.That is why Islam is the only true religion left. They all believe in God ( Full Answer )

Basically it is due to the belief of whether one's Holy Book isinspired and non-corrupted. Also, the three disagree on the role ofJesus Christ and the final Judgment.
Christians, Jews, and Muslims are not at war. ______________________________________________ Sometimes they are at war but for political reasons that never related truly to religions.
Given that Muslims extend the Islamic Prophetic lineage to peoplewho professed to be either Jewish or Christian, any of theseprophets would be considered Muslims by modern Muslims. (Exampleswould include: Abraham/Ibrahim, Moses/Musa, Jesus/3isa,Jonah/Yunes, etc.) However, since Judaism and Christia…nity are separate faiths fromIslam, by definition, no Jew or Christian is a Muslim.

Jews hold many different views about other religions, but Jewish teaching only has one thing to say on this topic: the righteous people of all nations will have a share in the world to come. This means that no non-jew has any obligation to become Jewish. As for individual beliefs, although they v…ary, most Jews get along well with Christians and Muslims. Jews are very put off by proselytizing though, and find this behavior insulting and irritating. In fact, Jews actively defend themselves against proselytizing, through organizations such as Jews for Judaism. ( Full Answer )
The Islamic notion of toleration for other religions is verydifferent in Muslim-majority countries than it is in the West,namely that toleration in Islam is seen as an Islamic gift toothers and Islam remains in charge whereas in the West tolerationis based on the fact that no religion has the high-g…round.Proselytization of non-Islamic faiths is prohibited in most Muslimcountries whereas Proselytization of non-Christian faiths ispermitted in most Western countries.

( Full Answer )
Answer 1 During the early centuries after Islam was founded, the Muslimswere noted for their tolerance of Christians and Jews. As long asthey obeyed the constitution set up by the Prophet, they were to beprotected and allowed to practice their religion as they wanted. Answer 2 In the Middle Ages…, Muslims treated non-Muslims in a way that wassuperior to contemporaneous civilizations and introduced theconcept of religious tolerance (as opposed to Europe which waspracticing the exact opposite at the time). However, it is nothingclose to equality or Rights. An important thing to note is that theconcept of Rights comes out the Enlightenment. Prior to this point,there was a system of privilege wherein the Ruler would provideprivileges (out of the kindness of his heart) to a certain group ofpeople to do acts. A person did not have the "right" to anythingand this was the mentality worldwide. An implementation of thissame system today would rightly be consider apartheid orsegregationist. The Pact of Omar was a document of submission signed by the CaliphOmar and defeated Christians and Jews during one of Omar's Wars.While the factual accuracy of that story may be doubted, there isno doubt that the Pact of Omar formed the basis for the treatmentof non-Muslims in the conquered territories. The Pact of Omar setout a number of regulations that will be described in this answer. The Dhimmi, or non-Muslim under Muslim occupation was required bythe Pact of Omar to pay a number of taxes that were connected withhis Dhimmi status. The most famous was the jizya, which was a taxthat Dhimmi had to pay for Muslims for the right to not be killedwhere they stood for not acknowledging Mohammed's Prophecy; it wasa form of humiliation. Additional taxes included the kharaj, whichwas a tax on non-Muslim* land-holdings in the Muslim World. Thekharaj was so untenable that most Dhimmi were forced to live in thecities where the tax would not be applicable. There was alsoinequality concerning the justice system. On paper, a Christian orJew could testify against a Muslim, but in reality, such testimonywas not acceptable and the attempt to defame a Muslim would receiveretribution. Christians and Jews were not allowed to build newhouses of worship, restore old houses of worship, proselytize inany way (this included religious debate or dialogue), or allow wineor pigs to be shown in public. This system of inequality between Muslims and non-Muslims persistedup to the colonial period, when it reversed. As a result ofcolonization, the segregated Dhimmi System gave way to a new,modern bureaucratic system where Europeans were the dominant classand natives, regardless of their religion were second-class, unlessthey became part of the bureaucracy. To do this, a person wouldrequire an education in order to become literate and be able tosuccessfully perform functions in the Arab World. As Jews andChristians sought education, they were able to ascend the hierarchyand become relatively powerful compared to the Muslim majority.When the Islamic World became independent, only the LebaneseChristians were able to maintain this dominant position (and onlyuntil the Lebanese Civil War of 1975-1991). In other countries, theend of colonization saw a brief rise in Anti-Semitism followed by amass exodus of Jews from majority-Muslim countries for Israel, UK,France, the United States and Canada. Those Jews and Christians whoremained garnered a more equal status than anything that they hadpreviously had under Muslim leadership, but still are unequal interms of their inability to proselytize, the unofficial"requirement" to avoid offending Islam in public, and the need toseek the authority of high government officials to build new housesof worship or to repair existing ones. *Although Muslims also had to pay the kharaj in theory, in practicethe tax rate for kharaj on Muslims was slight compared to theamount required by the Dhimmi peoples.

Christians believe in Christianity, whereas Muslims and Jews do not. See the related question for more details.
As the Old Testament developed into the New Testament, Christianityadopted circumcision from the Old, tracing back to Abraham. Islamtraces Prophet Muhammad through Adna to Ishmael son of Abraham andalso adopted circumcision. Thus, Christians and Moslems meetcircumcision in Abraham. Answer 2 Jews and… Muslims circumcise their boys; Christians do not. The Jewsthat circumcise their children do so in answer to a tradition thatgoes back in their religion to the time of Abraham. There is in fact no direct command to circumcise in the Islamicreligion. Rather, this is a cultural phenomenon that was encouragedby ancient religious scholars. Christians have been instructed by Paul that circumcision is notrequired and that the act of accepting Christ as your savior is allthat is required. This is referred to as circumcision of the heart.Christendom has nowhere adopted circumcision into its religion forreligious reasons. Answer 3 The origin of Jewish circumcision is in the Torah, which is thefoundation of Judaism. God told Abraham "every male among you shallbe circumcised" as part of the covenant between God and the Jewishpeople (Genesis ch.17). Since that time, virtually all Jews haveobserved the command of circumcision for close to four millennia,even in times of religious persecution under the Greeks, Romans,Spaniards, and Soviets. Circumcision is the indelible sign of God'scovenant and is just as important as Yom Kippur in terms of thestringency which the Torah places upon it. And similar to YomKippur, it is one of the observances which are common to Orthodox,Conservative and Reform Jews alike. It may be noted that while we do not keep God's commands because ofphysical benefits, it is still interesting that circumcision hasbeen known to offer virtually complete protection from penilecancer. According to a recent article in the New England Journal ofMedicine, none of the more than 1,600 persons studied with thiscancer had been circumcised in infancy. In the words of researchersCochen and McCurdy, the incidence of penile cancer in the U.S. is"essentially zero" among circumcised men. Also, research at JohnsHopkins University Medical School in Baltimore have shown thatcircumcised men are six to eight times less likely to becomeinfected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Researchers believethat protection is due to the removal of the foreskin, whichcontains cells that have HIV receptors which scientists suspect arethe primary entry point for the HIV virus (Reuters, March 25,2004). Several studies reported that circumcised boys were between 10 to39 times less likely to develop urinary tract infections duringinfancy than uncircumcised boys. In addition, circumcision protectsagainst bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections and a varietyof other conditions related to hygiene. The extremely low rate of cervical cancer in Jewish women (9 to 22times less than among non-Jewish women) is thought to be related totheir husbands' being circumcised. As a result of studies likethese, a number of prestigious medical organizations such as theCalifornia Medical Association have recognized the benefits ofcircumcision. As an operation, circumcision has an extremely small complicationrate. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine (1990)reported a complication rate of 0.19 percent when circumcision isperformed by a physician. When performed by a trained mohel, therate falls to 0.13 percent or about 1 in 800. When a complicationoccurs, it is usually due to the bleeding, which is easilycorrectable. No other surgical procedure can boast such figures forcomplication-free operations. One reason why there are so few complications involving bleedingmay be that the major clotting agents, prothrombin and vitamin K,do not reach peak levels in the blood until the eighth day after ababy is born. Prothrombin levels are normal at birth, drop to alower level in the next few days, and return to normal at the endof the first week. One study showed that by the eighth day,prothrombin levels reach 110 percent of normal. In the words of Dr.Armand J. Quick, author of several works on the control ofbleeding, "It hardly seems accidental that the rite of circumcisionwas postponed until the eighth day by the Mosaic law." ( Full Answer )
One of the simpleexample for how Muslims have shown tolerance to Christians is that14 million Arabs are Coptic Christians. Muslims were the lords ofArabia for 1400 years. For a few years the British ruled, and for a few yearsthe French ruled. Overall, the Muslims ruled Arabia for 1400 years. Yet… today,there are 14 million Arabs who are Coptic Christians i.e. Christians sincegenerations. It proves the fact that Muslims are highly toleranttowards Christians as they are the people of the book. And Muslimsrespect them equally and have only tried peaceful means toenlighten them towards the path of Islam. ( Full Answer )
Answer 1 Of the 6.8 billion (CIA fact book) people on Earth, 3.75 billionhave an almost identical idea about the meaning of life, which isto do more good than bad, so that you can go to heaven and nothell. The argument that all the Abrahamic religions are not thesame can be shunned very easily beca…use details are not taken intothe equation, because details are interpreted differently by eachdifferent society due to cultural differences, however despite allof the conflict between the three groups, their main goal in lifeis the same do good so you go to heaven. Mohammad did conquer land, however he was tolerant of all thepeople, culture, religions, unless they harmed human being, orother creatures. The meaning of Islam is peace so since he was trying to convert theJews and christians, and everyone with the order of god, and Islamand these religions are very similar, so why would he kill Jews andchristians when they are the easiest to convert, if a christian ora Jew reads the koran it will make complete sense, to a very highextent that is. Mohamed was a very peaceful leader, other than the fact that he hadto conquer to spread the "word of god" , he is obviously seen ascompetition by radical Christians because Islam is the fastestgrowing religion in the world, Since Mohammad was not in the biblehis reign was some 600 years after the bible was written, so if heis not seen in the bible of course he is going to be called a liar,but Moses, etc are not criticized because they are in the bible. To anyone who is a fan of reading please read about all religions(Torah, bible, Quran, Gita, etc) and decide which one makes themost sense to you, you will probably change yourself for the restof your life, because all of us are ignorant about each other,religion is a way to discipline ourselves to do good, so find outwhat your ideal description of good is. for they are Ahl al-Kitab, that is, People of the Book, orpeople whose tradition is based upon a divinely revealed Scripture.Although they have distorted and altered it, they do possess areligion of divine origin, and hence Islam has made some exceptionsin dealing with them. Answer 2 According to Islam, Mohammed preached tolerancebecause it was God's will that he do so, in order to promotegoodwill between men. However, if we examine this critically, we note that most ofMohammed's exhortations to tolerance come from the Meccan period,when Muslims were not in power as opposed to the Medinan period,when Muslims were in power. Therefore, it is likely that Mohammedwas preaching tolerance for self-interest, i.e. Mohammed wanted themajority of non-Muslim Meccans to tolerate him. Some other issues that should be examined more critically fromAnswer 1 include the following assertions: . Mohammed being a peaceful leader when he engaged in over 60different battles and combat missions and slaughtered the JewishTribe of Qurayza and nearly slaughtered the Jewish Tribe of BanuQaynuqa... . Mohammed being tolerant of all cultures when he specificallybanned and destroyed all polytheistic/henotheistic idols in theKa'aba and forbade any polytheistic or henotheistic religion in 630C.E. on pain of death... . The details of difference between the Abrahamic Faiths are veryimportant. The fundamental Christian belief in the Trinity is theSin of Shirk in Islam and meritorious of the death penaltyaccording to historic sources like Ibn Tabari. So, such things wereobviously not worth dismissing hundreds of years ago. . Islam is called "the religion of peace" because of how itself-defines. The root S-L-M ( Ø³ÙÙ ) is part of Salaam (Ø³ÙØ§Ù ) whichmeans peace and Istislaam (Ø¥Ø³ØªØ³ÙØ§Ù ) which means surrender. Theessence of the idea is that when somebody surrenders to the DivineWill, they will be at peace. This following of Divine Law thatcreates peace is what Islam means. Of course, this says nothingabout those who refuse to surrender to the Divine Will, which wouldnaturally include any non-Muslims (and does involve violence). ( Full Answer )
Another view Muslims treated Jews and Christians kindly, justly,and with tolerance and full respect so far Muslims where neitherfought by them nor fought by others who were supported by them.This treatment was according to Allah (god in English) command inQuran. that says: Meaning English Translatio…n: " God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealingjustly with those who have not fought you about religion and havenot driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers." (Quran, chapter 60/ verse 8) Prophet Muhammad married two Jewish women. He bought stuff fromthem and borrowed money from them. It is narrated that prophetMuhammad used every morning to find garbage and dirt thrown infront of his home by a Jewish neighbor. However, once he did notfind this garbage and dirt in front of his door. He went to visitthe Jewish neighbor and found he was ill. However, Muslimstreatment to the Jews in Medina changed to the worse only when theJews tried twice to kill the prophet and they betrayed Muslims andcooperated with the attackers to Muslims in Medina. Muslims believe in Jewish holy book; the Torah. Jews and Christianswere living in peace and equal rights as Muslims when Muslims werecontrolling Spain. However, when Christians conquered Muslims inSpain and controlled the country, they committed massacres againstboth Muslims and Jews, destroyed their properties, and forced themeither to convert to Christianity or to leave the country (mostlyto the currently called Morocco). This explains that until presentthe percentage of Jews in Morocco is much higher than thepercentage in Spain or any other Arab country. Refer to questions below for more information. ( Full Answer )

Jews are neither Christians nor Muslims. However, Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship same God. Refer to related question below.
Answer 1 The Muslims think Jesus is merely a prophet and not the Son of thetrue God. They think all Christians are infidels. The related linkgives you some idea of their differences. * Muslims don't think either Christians nor jews as Infidels themeaning of infidel in Arabic ( that who doesn't bel…ieve in god)which doesn't apply to neither Christians nor jews during muslimconquests they were told specifically not to touch Christianchurches or jewish temples, but to destroy all statues and othertotems worshiped back then. . Answer 2 While there are certainly some Muslims that hold that Christiansare infidels (since the Trinity is construed by these Muslims to bea violation of "shirk" - the idea that no being should be co-equalwith God), most Muslims see Jews and Christians as misguidedforerunners to Islam. In the Islamic view, these people have theright intentions and a correct knowledge of who God is, but theirelders have altered their holy books to suit their own purposes asopposed to Qur'an which has undergone no such editing.

Muslims are known through times to be the most open and tolerant religion. During the persecution of Jews by Christians at med evil times. Jews only sanctuary was amongst Muslims in Islamic nations. That is one of the reasons that there are so many "Arab Jews" in the world.
Muslims treat Christians and Jews and all non Muslims kindly and with tolerance so far they don't attack Muslims, they don't expel them from their lands and homes, and/or they don't fight them. Quran; Muslims holy book, and prophet Muhammad (PBUH) call for kind treatment and with tolerance with all …non-Muslims. Islam religion is a religion of peace. Quran; Muslims holy book that they follow its instructions and teachings and rules; say (meaning English translation): "Allah (or God and same God worshiped in Christianity and Judaism) does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes - from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.Allah only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion - [forbids] that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers." (60:8-9) and says: "And if they incline to peace, then incline to it [also] and rely upon Allah. Indeed, it is He who is the Hearing, the Knowing." (8:61) It is important to emphasize that Muslims believe in Moses and Jesus and they believe in their holy books (The Torah and the Bible) as God revelations. That is why they call Christians and Jews in the Muslims Holy Book the Quran as "the people of the book". Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) married a Jewish woman and married a Christian woman. Quran includes a fill chapter titled (Mary). The virgin Mary is the only woman mentioned explicitly in many locations in Quran and the only woman with her name is the title of full chapter in Quran.

Islam is an Arabic word that means submission to Allah (God in English). The root of the Arabic word Islam is 'Salem' that means be in peace and being perfect. This means that the follower of Islam, who is called Muslim, is the one who submits and surrenders to Allah (God in English) with no partner… and no associate and accordingly gains peace and perfection. In this sense, Islam is the religion of all God prophets since start of mankind. All God prophets are Muslims and their mission is to call people to Islam. However, . Muslims per God revelation of the Torah to prophet Moses (Musa in Arabic) called themselves Jews. . Muslims per God revelation of the Bible to prophet Jesus (Isa in Arabic) called themselves Christians . Muslims per God revelation of the Quran to prophet Muhammad called themselves the same name Muslims (for prophet Muhammad being the last prophet and Quran being the last God holy book). Accordingly, real Christians and real Jews are considered Muslims per the general sense of Islam as submission to God the one and only one God with no partners and no associates. ( Full Answer )
It depends on how you define "tolerant." Certain scriptures in the Qur'an specifically state that "people of the book" (a term which specifically includes Jews and Christians) are not to be persecuted and will be rewarded by Allah for their good works. In practice, that's sometimes been followed a…nd sometimes not; Jews and Christians have been persecuted by certain Islamic regimes and more or less tolerated as long as they "behave themselves" by others. Actual equality is not demanded by the Qur'an nor has it been particularly characteristic of Islamic nations. However, the question asks about "Muslims", which refers specifically to people rather than to governments. The answer to that is that people are people. Some of them are tolerant, some of them are intolerant, and some of them are raving loons; this is a common feature of pretty much all religions (or lack thereof... there are certainly raving loon atheists out there as well).

A fundamental belief shared by Christians and Muslims, but not by Jews is the existence of hell. Another is the belief that Satan, the devil, is the evil adversary of God. Jews believe that Satan is the loyal assistant of God, tasked with testing the righteousness of the faithful.
When we pray for rain, we are asking for the spirit of God to fall on us like rain.
Yes, they should all get along. They all worship same God, following same morals per religion, and practicing same rituals although in different ways. Quran says (meaning English translation): "And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth (Qur'an), confirming that which preceded …it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah (or God and same God in Judaism and Christianity) has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ." (5:48) ( Full Answer )
All human beings are the off-spring of Hazrat Adam (AS), and the creation of Almighty God. The Muslims are commanded by Allah Almighty and the Last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (May peace be upon him) to be kind, helpful and merciful to all humans. They are supposed not to hurt the feelings of others. Th…e Muslims show respect to the cultures of all nations and the followers of all religions, especially the Christians and the Jews because they also believe in One God, angels, Prophets, and the Day of Judgment as do the Muslims. the Muslims also have faith in the Prophet-hood of all Prophets (may peace be upon them all).

OK, first off all of these religions are monotheistic meaning they only believe in, worship, one God. Interestingly enough, they all believe in the same God and are related in history. The Jews, believe, live by and follow the Tanach (Jewish Bible) upon which the Christian Old Testament was based…. Judaism is strictly monotheistic and doesn't consider the Christian concept true monotheism. Many people believe that the only real difference between Judaism and Christianity is Jesus, however, that is not correct. Examples of Christian concepts that Judaism does not accept are; the Trinity, hell and the devil (also Muslim concepts), original sin, damnation (Muslim too), the Christian concept of Messiah, and many more. Christians, live by, believe and follow the Bible with BOTH the New and Old Testament therefore they do believe that Jesus was the Son of God and that salvation is through Him. The God of the Muslims is Allah. The Muslim's religious text is the Koran, which they believe contains literal words of God. The Five Pillars of Islam are five acts that are expected from anyone proclaiming themselves as believers. There's a lot more to all three religions than that of course, I can not even begin to scratch the surface these are just a few of the basic facts from each one. ( Full Answer )
Answer 1 They are perceived by a very small minority of Jewsand Christians as unbelievers and as their enemies although thevast majority of educated Jews and Christians will simply view themas fellow humans worshipping the same God according to their ownbeliefs and traditions. Muslims view Jews and… Christians as "people of the book" as Muslims believe in their holy books; TheBible and the Torah; and their prophets; Jesus and Moses. Refer toquestions below. Answer 2 The Jewish perception of Muslims depends on whether you are askingfrom a religious perspective or a political perspective.Religiously, Jews accept that Islam is a valid religion fornon-Jewish people and the famous Rabbi Moses Maimonides (Rambam)said over 900 years ago that Islam was part of the Divine Plan tomake Knowledge of God a worldwide phenomenon. Jews support Muslims'right to pray and see their rituals and ceremonies as valid andproper, just not for Jews (who are obligated to follow Jewish Law). Politically, Jews and Muslims have a number of unresolved issues.During Mohammed's life and the Caliphate period, Jews saw Muslimsas preferable overlords than the Christians since Muslims permittedJewish practice whereas Christians often did not. However, thistolerance is viewed by Muslims as being peaceful and harmonious,whereas Jews see it as a second-class citizenship. Additionally,Muslims circulated numerous Anti-Semitic hadiths and, in the modernperiod, embraced many Anti-Semitic books and pamphlets from Europe.Jews are immensely bothered and angered by the positive receptionthat many Muslims gave such derisive nonsense. Most recently, theunited Islamic opposition to the State of Israel and itsinternationally confirmed Right to Exist infuriates Jews becauseMuslim politicians continually try to deny both the politicalvalidity of Israel as well as the religious connection that Jewshave to the land. The Jewish perception is that these Muslimleaders and many Muslims in Muslim-majority countries are unwillingto even consider the Israeli or Jewish points of view whiledemanding that their political will be enacted.

Hate is not a tenet of Christianity. I am not familiar with the tenets of Islam
I think that the believers in Judaism and Islam would have to putaside past history and start from the place that they both servethe same God of Abraham. The land has had so much building andliving from time immemorial that the solution may be to create anInternational landmark, open to all. Then, a… government could beformed by both parties, possibly with a parliamentary system with arobust electorate. Bombing and terrorism would have to end as ameans to gain power. ( Full Answer )
