Difference between Allah and Jesus
Allah vs Jesus :
When talking of religious leaders, one is often different from the other as is the religious philosophies that they preach. They do share certain common grounds and yet, they are basically fundamentally different. Allah and Jesus are two such figures who serve as the revered heads of Christianity and Islam whose differences are to be discussed further in this article.
Who is Allah?
Allah is considered as the supreme God, and the only and unique deity according to Islam. He is considered as the creator of the universe and a supreme figure who is put above all and remains to be an abstract figure as he is regarded as a God or a deity who has no physical form. The world “Allah” itself means God, or the one to be worshipped in Arabic. He is known to be merciful but he does not extend grace to his people, but imposes sets of rules and regulations upon his people, to which they must submit. His favor must be earned through good deeds and he is known to sent prophets from time to time to restate and reestablish his rules to which the people must obey.
Who is Jesus?
Derived from the Latin ‘lesus’, Jesus Christ, considered to be the son of God, or the messiah as indicated in the old testament was said to be born in Jerusalem in human form. He is the fundamental stature of Christianity and his image is conceptualized as similar to the human form thereby making him closer to his people. He is deemed as the savior of his people who sacrificed himself to save his people from sin. His basic teaching is to love one another and forms a part of the holy trinity which is revered by the Christians.
What is the difference between Jesus and Allah?
The main difference is between their religions of which they serve as the religious leaders. Jesus Christ is the fundamental stature of Christianity and is also believed to be the Messiah or the messenger of the God who was sent to earth in order to save the people from sin. Allah is the fundamental stature of Islam and is considered as omnipotent.
While Jesus Christ is considered as the son of God, he is a part of the Holy Trinity, the father, the son and the holy spirit. He is considered the saviour of the people, sent by God to redeem people of their sins and to thereby help them. And yet, Allah is considered as the only unique God, the creator of the universe and the only existing deity according to Islam. He is merciful and yet, he does not extend his grace to people. He is known to only impose a set of rules which his people must abide by and he is also known to send prophets from time to time who will reset and reestablish these rules on earth.
Jesus Christ was said to be born in human form and is thereby depicted as a human being which sets him closer to the people. Yet, Allah does not reach out to the people. He is considered as the supreme being who stands above all and is portrayed in abstract form because of the fact that he is God himself, the omnipotent energy which governs and has the right to judge all human beings.
