    If this is the wrong place for this OP please move it to the correct area.

    Yesterday i was asked how muslims look at other religions, and in my study i come across a good answer that inwanted to share, so that the questfrom yesterday can be answered :)

    Muhammad spoke approvingly of Jews and Christians as fellow "People of the Book," and the Qur'an even allows a Muslim man to take a Jewish or Christian woman for his wife. It also expresses admiration for the Jews, in that "they know the Book as they know their own children!"

    As seen in the quote above, Muslims consider the prophets of Judaism and Christianity to be true messengers of God, but hold Muhammad to be the last and greatest of these.

    Although the Qur'an teaches that Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, it rejects the divinity of Jesus. It also explicitly condemns the doctrine of the Trinity, which it interprets as consisting of God, Jesus and Mary.

    So if you think muslims are against other religions it is not so :)
    But then you will ask, why do muslims kill "infidels", the killing we see done by terror group claining to be muslims, can not be true muslims when they clearly use the scripture in an evil way.
    There are verses in the Quran that extremists use to "approve of their action" but if we look just to the next Page or a few pages later, it clearly say those who harm others are doing evil.

    Yeah, definitely not so. It is the religion of peace. It was so even in the time of Mohammad. :)

    In my understanding Muhammad (pbuh) spoke only about the abrahamic religions.
    But yes of course there are other religions too as you mention.

    I can only speak for my own understanding and i have nothing wrong to say about Baha’i:)
    It is said that Muhammad is the last prophet, but since i read a lot about Baha'i in this forum i have no reason to say anything wrong about it.

    Of course you will find muslims who will disagree with me on my understanding too.

    If i remember correctly you do not like people from the west example American or European countries.

    So i guess you will keep being rude and hostile toward anyone who are not excatly like you self.
    But go on, your mocking does not bother me one bit.

    1) How can a "true" messenger of God be less then Muhammad?
    2) God is "beyond" duality, do you expect "Muhammad is the greatest" to be God's truth?
    3) God is "beyond" time, do you expect "Muhammad to be the last" to be God's truth?

    1) Do you believe God condemns the doctrine of the Trinity, while calling the prophets "true messengers of God"?
