Similarities Between Judaism and Islam

Peter Lewis

This paper will cover the similarities between Judaism and Islam. These two religions have been at odds for years. Mainly due to the conflict of the state of Israel. They have a lot more in common than most people realize. Muhammad studied Jewish tribes and took a lot of that with him to create Islam. The two religions share many of the same texts and stories, such as the stories of Abraham and Jonah. Moses also appears in the Qur'an. The Jewish people were considered the chosen ones by Allah and share many of the same practices including fasting and pilgrimages.
