This is not the place for a theological dispute over which religion is true.
Preaching and Proselyting do not belong here.

That said, from a historical, cultural, civilizational, psychological and sociological point of view,
here's a differences among the three so-called Abrahamic Religions.

(1) Jews believe in many different prophets - all having narratives in their book, the Bible.

(2 Christians took that Jews Bible, calked it the Old Testament,
and added a Volume Two, which is called the New Testament.
It is about the final Jewish prophet, Jesus, who is deemed the most important.

(3) Muslims recognize Jews as the Peoples of the Book,
but issue a Revised Edition, the Koran, wherein the previous edition is deemed corrupted,
and the new prophet Muhammad, is also the author, and the most important prophet,
recognizing the other major prophets
but emphasizing the alleged false narratives around most of them.

That makes the Jews "superior" in the ancient Greek heroic tradition,
as exemplified in the revival of the Olympic Games,
but also expounded in Homer and Greek Tragedies,
is the HERO as in the case of Muhammad Ali,
the late African American Muslim prize fighter.

So these are cultural and civilizational notions of superiority which
because of post-Civil War racism against former slaves,
and Nazi notions of Racism,
have made us incapable of recognizing excellence
in cultures and civilizations
as in the case of American and Lira exceptionalism.
The current version and status of of Islam as a religion,
is one of inferiority
because it has produced all over the world
Jihad by suicides and murders
honor killings and genital mutilation..
