Allah and Jesus Differences

02 May 2014, 14:51



Allah is the Arabic and Muslim version of God. Â Jesus is a figure in Christianity, he is often called the Son of God. Â Aside from the difference in people who believe Allah or Jesus to be a religious figure, there are also other differences between the two. Â In Islam, Allah is believed to be the supreme figure, a deity. Â He is a unique creator, master of the universe, and is to be put above all else. Â In Christianity, Jesus is not the creator but the creator’s son. Â Jesus is a part of the Holy Trinity revered by Christians. Â The trinity is the idea that the father, his son, and ghost are demonstrations of true faith. Â Allah is taken as more of a God than man, whereas Jesus is presented to Christians as a man who walked the earth like all other men.

The man who is Jesus was said to be of Jewish decent born in Jerusalem, Israel. Â While there is no scientific evidence of birth or death, his birth is celebrated on Christmas Day by all Christians. Â The day of Jesus’ death is marked as a day of sorrow for Christians, as he is said to have been killed by Jewish non-Christians. Â Allah was first used in the Meccan religion to depict a higher power whose will must be done in order to be of true Muslim faith. Â Allah is sometimes criticized by non-Muslim or Arabs as being a demanding God, however Muslims believe otherwise.

Islamic religions have given Allah 99 names, each depicting the glory of him as a deity, each name describing another quality of him. Â Allah, as a creator, is believed to have made everyone equal and those who suffer will be saved. Â Jesus is believed to be a savior of Christian souls. Â It is believed that he lived to preach the ways of God and died for the sins of all mankind.


Christianity and Allah have met in Arabic Christians. Â This is the belief that Allah is still God, however he is incorporated into their faith through the trinity, which is part of the Christian religion. Â Even for Christians and those of Jewish faith, Allah is an acceptable term for God.

Allah and Jesus may seem similar for those who are unaware of specifics, however they are very different. Â Allah and God are sometimes interchangeable to mean the same, however, Jesus and Allah are not the same.
