Jesus and Mohammed 2 Both Christianity and Islam are the defiant cousins of Judah and two of the most dominant figures in these religions respectively, are Jesus Christ and the prophet Mohammed.

These two religions exist as separate systems of belief and are the result of conflict but both began within origins of the fertile lands of Mesopotamia. With the presence of religion attributed to the Roman Empire, early division of the Roman Empire opened Western Europe and the rest of the world to religions including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Christianity has evolved to dominance in Western culture, while Islam and Judaism are centered in and widely known to highly influence Mid-Eastern culture. Jesus and Mohammed are central figures of Christianity and Islam respectively and Christianity and Islam are two religions with many followers. The life and death of both Jesus and Mohammed had significant impact on their religions and each religion is still widely practiced today. Christianity and Islam have now been separated into varying denominations but both Islamic and Christian religions are significant parts of modern history and the world today. Practices have evolved but praying, recognizing and celebrating holy holidays and performing rituals in the worshipping of God were foundations attributed to these two historic figures.
