As I've stated, I've recently picked up the Qur'an to study... not for any other reason then to gain an understanding of who I often debate. I was amazed at how similar the doctrine of the Qu'ran is to Christianity. Further, how much more similar the Qu'ran is than the Judaic religion. While Jews believe Jesus to be a liar, Muslims believe him to be the Messiah, perfect, sinless, born to the virgin Mary, able to perform miricles, and even was the son of God. The name Allah is aribac for God. In fact he is also claimed to be the God of Moses, Abraham, Jacob and Jesus.
Some of the major points that differ is that they don't believe he died on the cross but was rather switched in either body or spirit with Judas I believe. Their claim is that surely God would allow His only begotten son to be crucified. Therefore they also can't believe that Jesus rose from the dead as we believe. They think that Jesus will return to earth one day but will come down and kill all the Jews. I know this part sounds funny... I think Mohammed's scribes were simply getting tired from scribing after Mohammad after 22 years!
