Similarities & Differences between Qur’an and Bible

15/06/2011

Similarities
1) Believe in one true God, not the concept of Trinity.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5) “Hear O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord, and the Lord your God is to be loved with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”
(Mark 12:28-30) …“Which law is the first of all?” Jesus said in answer, “The first is, Give ear, O Israel:The Lord our God is one Lord; and you are to have love for the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
(Holy Quran 112:1-4) ‘Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begets not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.
(Holy Quran 2:163) ‘And your God is One God. There is no God but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.’

2) Confess that Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) was only a messenger, NOT GOD.
(John 5:30) ‘I (Jesus) by myself can do nothing – as I hear I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my will, but the will of thy who has sent me’.
(John 17:3) ‘This is eternal life, so that you may know there is one true God, and Jesus Christ, who Thou has sent.’
(Mathew 19:16-17) ‘One of the persons approaches Jesus, and says ‘Good Master, what good things shall I do, that I shall attain eternal life.’ And Jesus said unto him, ‘Why do you call me good? For there is none good, except One, that is God – And if you want to enter life, keep the commandments’.
(Holy Quran 4:157) ‘That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah,” but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.’

3) Perform prostration (as-sujud) in their prayers.
(Exodus 34:8) ‘Then Moses quickly went down on his face in worship.’
(Joshua 5:14) ‘…Then Joshua, falling down with his face to the earth in worship…’
(Matthew 26:39) ‘And he (Jesus) went forward a little and falling down on his face in prayer…’
(Holy Quran 32:15) ‘Only those believe in Our Signs, who, when they are recited to them, fall down in prostration, and celebrate the praises of their Lord, nor are they (ever) puffed up with pride.’
(Holy Quran 22:77) ‘O you who believe! Bow

down, prostrate yourselves, and adore your Lord; and do good; that you may prosper.’

4) Wearing hijab is an obligation for women
(1 Corinthians 11:6-10) ‘For if a woman is not veiled, let her hair be cut off; but if it is a shame to a woman to have her hair cut off, let her be veiled.’
(Holy Quran 33:59) ‘O Prophet! Say to your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers that they let down upon them their over-garments (veil); this will be more proper, that they may be known, and thus they will not be given trouble; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.’

5) Pork is prohibited to eat
(Deuteronomy 14:8) ‘And the pig is unclean to you, because though it has a division in the horn of its foot, its food does not come back; their flesh may not be used for food or their dead bodies touched by you.’
(Holy Quran 5:3) ‘Forbidden to you is that which dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine…’

6) Polygamy (having more than a wife) is allowed (but limited in Islam)
(1 Chronicles 14:3) ‘And while he was living in Jerusalem, David took more wives and became the father of more sons and daughters.’
(Holy Quran 4:3) ‘…marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course.

Differences
1) Christians believe that God rests and sleeps, but Muslims believe that God does not need a rest at all, neither does He need a sleep.
(Psalm 44:23) “Why are you sleeping, O Lord? Awake! And come to our help, do not give us up forever.”
(Holy Quran 50:38) ‘We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.’ (Holy Quran 2:255) ‘Allah. There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep…’

2) Christians believe that God can be seen, but Muslims believe that God cannot be seen at anytime and under any circumstances.
(Genesis 32:30) And Jacob gave that place the name of Peniel, saying, “I have seen God face to face, and still I am living.”
(Holy Quran 6:103) ‘Vision comprehends Him not, and He comprehends (all) vision; and He is the Knower of subtleties, the Aware.’

3) Muslims have great respect for their prophets and believe that their good manners are above suspicion, but prophets in the Bible were accused of great sins such as adultery, incest & blasphemy.
(Genesis 19:31-36) ‘And the older daughter said to her sister, “Our father is old, and there is no man to be a husband to us in the natural way. Come, let us give our father much wine, and we will go into his bed, so that we may have offspring by our father.”
(Holy Quran 21:74-75) ‘And (as for) Lot, We gave him wisdom and knowledge, and We delivered him from the town which wrought abominations; surely they were an evil people, transgressors; And We him into Our mercy; surely he was of the good.’

4) Muslims are required to respect their parents & family members, but on the other hand, Jesus Christ in the Bible did not respect his own mother & encouraged his disciples to hate their fathers & mothers.
(Matthew 12:47-50) ‘While he (Jesus) was still talking to the people, his mother and his brothers came, desiring to have talk with him. And one said to him, ‘See, your mother and your brothers are outside, desiring to have talk with you.’ But he in answer said to him who gave the news, “Who is my mother and who are my brothers?” And he put out his hand to his disciples and said, “See, my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the pleasure of my Father in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother.”

(Holy Quran 19:30-32) ‘Jesus said: Surely I am a servant of Allah; He has given me the Book and made me a prophet; And He has made me blessed wherever I may be, and He has enjoined on me prayer and poorrate so long as I live; And dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me insolent, unblessed…’

(Holy Quran 46:15) ‘And We have enjoined on man doing of good to his parents; with trouble did his mother bear him and with trouble did she bring him forth; and the bearing of him and the weaning of him was thirty months…’

5) Women in Islam do have some rights over their husbands, but women in Christianity don’t have any rights, and they must only be silent.
(1 Timothy 2:12-14) ‘In my opinion it is right for a woman not to be a teacher, or to have rule over a man, but she must be silent. For Adam was first formed, then Eve; And Adam was not taken by deceit, but the woman, being tricked, became a wrongdoer.’

(Holy Quran 2:228) ‘…and their husbands have a better right to take them (women) back in the meanwhile if they wish for reconciliation; and they (women) have rights similar to those against them in a just manner…’

6) Wisdom & knowledge are emphasized in Islam, but not in Christianity.
(Ecclesiastes 1:18) ‘Because in much wisdom is much grief, and increase of knowledge is increase of sorrow.’
(Holy Quran 58:11) ‘…Allah will exalt those of you who believe, and those who are given knowledge, in high degrees; and Allah is Aware of what you do.’

7) In war, Islam commands Muslims not to kill the enemy’s women or children and to be kind & just to innocent people; but in the Bible, Jews are commanded to kill guiltless women and children during war.
(1 Samuel 15:2-3) ‘The Lord of armies says, I will give punishment to Amalek for what he did to Israel, fighting against him on the way when Israel came out of Egypt. Go now and put Amalek to the sword, putting to the curse all they have, without mercy: put to death every man and woman, every child and baby at the breast, every ox and sheep, camel and ass.’

(Holy Quran 5:32) ‘For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men…’

8- In Islam, the Holy Quran tells us that the difference of languages is actually one of God’s miracles, but in Christianity, the Bible tells us that the difference is to confuse mankind due to God’s jealousy to them.
(Genesis 11:1-7) ‘And all the earth had one language and one tongue… And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building. And the Lord said, “See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs. Come, let us go down and take away the sense of their language, so

    Masha’allah..

  • Roger Waters

    Being a Christian after reading this it is clear that the person who wrote it was not very familiar with the Bible. I must say that what I read hear about the Quran inspires me that we have much more in common then the world would have us think.

  • Subhan Allaha…..

  • He doesnt even know what the Bible is !!

  • Jeevan Preet Singh

    It’s an irony that in Islam women are given rights, but in reality they are snubbed. In Christianity where women isn’t an equal, in reality she is. 2ndly Islam says to have knowledge and wisdom, but in reality muslims are not the most educated whereas in Christianity it isn’t much emphasised yet they are exucated. But really I don’t understand why fight over if it is your God, his God or their God. God will be God, rose by anyorher name isn’t it? My request to both sides is to find a way to live peacefully because humanity is at stake. If they kept on fighting there won’t be anyone left to praise Allah or Jesus cause it will end humans as species. I pray for both sides to my Waheguru, Allah and Jesus to bless them with peace and prosperity Amin

  • Qaisar Mumtaz

    THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD BUT MANY RELIGIONS AND FAITHS.
    EVERY RELEGION HAS A DIFFERENT WAY OF PREACHING BUT ITS TO ONE GOD.

  • simon thapa

    hello sir, first of all i want to say that for you plzz read the bible deeply and analyze the every words . you know nothing about bible what ever u wrote the similar things. to understand the bible u need to seek holy spirit.
    analyze every words of god every word have their own discription.
    christian peiple never believe that God need rest..
    Jacob never saw the God of our lord.. read again very carefully the Genyesis 32: 22-31.
    he never saw the God.
    Genesis 19:30-38 Lot is not a prophet, only Abraham is christinity first prophet. you dont know the Bible.
    In matthew 12:46-50 Jesus just gave the example who ever obey the God’s will they all are his parents. You have read the word of God very carefully man.
    ok Paul the great man he wrote the letter for timothy..1Timothy 2:11-14 he does not mean that ladies have to be silent like your thought ok. read matthew 28:18-19. Jesus said All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on the earth “Go” therefore and make disciples and baptize them… This saying not for man only its for women also..Go means for all who Believe in God of our Lord. analyze the word Go means both sungular and pular.
    so Jesus never dominate the women. in the God eyes man and women are equal..
    Great king soloman he is the king non of like him. Read the Bible again about king soloman in ur quran there is not written about him as detail. and read the Proverb 4.
    Ecclesiastes is the book that same the king soloman wrote in old age who us the great wisedomer.
    He mean that all things in earth is vanity wisdom, power, education in front of God of our lord.
    And about killing read 2samual 1 and 2 kings
    ok..
    read read read bible very very carefully God change the language not in jealous ok u man who nothing know about bible.
    read Genesis 11:5-7. Lord changes the language for man because of idiotic thing that man has done. and for future also.
    man never ever reach in heaven through tower.

    so i want to suggest u plzz read the Bible very carefully..

  • simon thapa

    pslam 44;23 is not meaning of that u thought sleeping means be quieting in that phrase
    pslam 44 is written by king David during the war with palistine so he pray like that and wrote this.
    so plzz try to analyze the meaning of every words ok.

  • Jesus did say this: whoever loves mother,father, sister, or brother more than me is not worthy of me. . .= whoever does not hate mother, father, sister, or brother in comparison (love one more = another less=hated in comparison, at least the other feels hated (spend more time with first is example.))

  • Proactive

    BEWARE The article is not accurate at all. I know the Bible and I have to say that the Bible is very distorted

  • everybody please be calm. i will say a simple thing pls note this thing. the author who wrote this article must be a muslim and not christian. pls read bible properly and talk about our god. you know nothing about our lord god. pls dont publish such things and confuse my people

  • My wife is a christian and i am a muslim… i never tried converting her to islam. but we has two books in home.. slowly slowly when she realize the diffrences one fine day she accepted the islam..

  • That is so not true! God never sleep and He is always there! and obviously Jesus never teaches us to hate our parents! In Christianity, we are taught to love each other, no matter what religion; Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim and no matter who you are. Please, get your FACTS RIGHT before you try to assume it!

  • i wish i could thumbs up some of these comments. ppl perish for lakk of knowledge and its sad most fall into that catagorie.

  • aslm alaikm all mydear brothers and sisters in islam’ and i say to those who dnt believe in islam peace be up on he who follows the guidence of god after that simon read the bible well when yu r saying lot is not prophet what do yu want to tell us and the one who says what is the bible u can also ask that question our 4yrs kids bible is the gospel which was revealed by jesus and thhen after u corrupted

  • I could totally tell this was written from a muslim perspective, not that that is a bad thing…but I was hoping for more of an objective perspective.

  • What is the definition of a Muslim? In a nutshell, “to believe in one GOD”
    What did Jesus believe in? ” to believe in one God”
    What is Jesus then? A Muslim.

  • The secret is that we r people of the book not books 3 become one the torah and the gospels r flawed but god gave us the koran to c the flaws i am a christian and when i die i will answer my god is god my prophet is jesus please u cant compare chapters in a single book..wink peace be opon you all

  • jesus was not a christian neither was he the founder of christianity.paul found christainty after jesus christ……..another similarity of salat in d bible (nehemia 8:4-6) and ezra bless d lord d great God and all d people answer amen amen lifting up their hands and they bowed their heads and worship the God with their face to the ground

  • These are all acording to your own view i agree…
    but please know the bible with opened eyes in its view not with quranic eyes….

  • I found this site as I was looking for the similarities in Christian and Islamic scriptures. I am a Christian minister and am looking for more understanding of the Quran. The author of this article uses Christian texts out of context and shows little understanding of Christian scriptures.

  • Come on really!! Obviously this is biased. Any serious bible student would know that Allah is not Jehovah. “Women in Islam have SOME rights over there husband?”
    Yea right.

  • actually, MK. in The Quran it does say that Jesus(pbuh) was a muslim who taught the Holy Bible to the people and over years of translation, stuff got messed up, but thats just what the Quran says…. :/
    incase of asking, i am muslim and i found the Bible refrences not logical at all.
    May God bless us all. amen/ameen

  • Jesus said that i am the way, the truth and the life and there is no other way to reach to God. please read the bible with the fresh mind.may the LORD open your eyes.

  • I searched for some understanding as to why the three major religions of the world are often in such conflict and unfortunately this article was more of the same ; that is, my religion is better than yours.

    I will pass no comment or judgement on the relative selected items taken from the bible’s new or old testiments or the Quran. If these revered books and the religions they underpin are only to be used for negative purposes, then the world will contifnue thousands of years of division and misery. I believe everyone has the right to believe in what they chose, and most often, but not always, this is product of their upbringing. It doesn’t make any one of them wrong, nor does it make any particular group right. It just makes it right for them.

    For those of you who believe in one God, and this is for the three major religions based on the same God, I urge you for your own good, those of your families and the rest of world, that you focus on the positive similarities and the good that this can achieve for the world.

    The key is not who is right or wrong, but the need for tolerance and understanding and to support the principle that people should allowed to worship God in their own way, and for unbelievers, they too have a right to believe what they believe. Nothing gives me greater joy than to see representatives from the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions come together ( on rare occasions) and worship God as one, whilst proudly maintaining their own detailed views and faiths.

    I don’t believe that God would be happy with the mess mankind has made throughout the centuries through to today bickering about differences and unfortunately in many cases prepared to force or kill others in the belief that one or the other was solely right.

    Tolerance, love, forgiveness – I believe this is how God would want us to behave.

    I will continue to try to seek out and understand our great religions so that I can try to look for the positive similarities to try to understand how I for one can set my own small example of how I think God would want us to behave. The alternative for mankind is thousands more years of intolerance, hate and arrogance and I don’t see God in any of that.

  • Terrible analysis of the Bible. The author is clearly not familiar with the context nor does he or she have a clear understanding of what was read. Please do not post false information.

  • I believe u wit the similarities bt edit ur difference u are too harsh on christians are u a muslim?

  • you guys are right, One God, one Love, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ and sons and daughters of God. :) ) This article is not accurate! do not foucs in religion for it is religion that separated us.
