Islam and Christianity
And nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, "W
e are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who
have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant. And when they listen to t
he revelation received by the Messenger, thou wilt see their eyes overflowing wi
th tears, for they recognise the truth: they pray: "Our Lord! we believe; write
us down among the witnesses. "What cause can we have not to believe in Allah an
d the truth which has come to us, seeing that we long for our Lord to admit us t
o the company of the righteous?" And for this their prayer hath Allah rewarded t
hem with gardens, with rivers flowing underneath,- their eternal home. Such is t
he recompense of those who do good.
Biblical prophecies for Prophet Muhammad Sometimes Christians are frustrated that Jews missed the advent of Jesus (pbuh). On the other side of the coin, was Muhammad (saws) the prophet after Jesus (pbuh)

If a Christian claims that Islam has harsh punishments and Christianity is a religion of love ... Here are some prescribed biblical punishments (with biblical references) http://www.islaminfo.com/compararticle.asp?level=17 . Let us deal in facts. Some punishment or the threat of punishment may be required (as is in Islam) but do ALL the biblical cases warrant the punishment mentioned? Alternatively, a response from a completely different angle click here . It should be remembered that in order to have punishments that a just and proper system should be in place first. Ther overall picture is important. (Hazrat Umar (ra) even curtailed certain punishments when there was a famine.) Muslims should also remember that amoung the names of God are al-Wadood (The Loving) and Ar-Rahmaan (The Merciful). In the US today cruel and unusual punishment is exacted on very large numbers of innocent and decent Americans (e.g. victims) while in Islam punishment is directed at a handful of criminals. Another of God's names in Islam is al-Muqsit (The Equitable, The One who is Just in His Judgement). In Islam Justice and Mercy go hand in hand. After all, it is difficult to have one without the other.
