s leaders on the same level for it would appear partial and very subjective but this paper will show the differences between the two prophets based on the different sources that have been consulted. The bulk of material and explanations are overwhelming, so this paper would simply come out to be a summary of what has been explored and declared by several religious scholars.
The first difference is: Muhammad was the prophet of war; but Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Muhammad adheres to Jihad, a holy or religious war. Second, Muhammads disciples killed for the faith while Jesus’ disciples were killed for their faith. Moreover, Muhammad promoted persecution against the "infidels" while Jesus forgave and converted the chief persecutor. In this case, Muhammad was the taker of life while Christ was the giver of life (John 10:27-28). In addition, Muhammad and his fellow warriors murdered thousands while Jesus murdered no one but saved many. Also, Muhammads method was compulsion while Jesus’ aim was voluntary conversion.
They are so different because Muhammad practiced force while Jesus preached faith. Muhammad was a warrior while Jesus is a deliverer. Also, Muhammad conquered his enemies with the sword but Christ conquered his enemies with another kind of sword, the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. In addition, Muhammad said to the masses, "Convert or die!" but Jesus said, "Believe and live!" As a natural warrior, Muhammad was swift to shed blood but Jesus as the sacrifice shed His own blood for the salvation of many. Muhammad preached "Death to the infidels!" but Jesus prayed "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do". Muhammad declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels, however, Jesus achieved a holy victory on Calvarys cross and His followers share in that victory. In addition, Muhammad constrained people by conquest but Jesus constrained people by love.
In guise of religion, modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Muhammad and
