Shalom brother

As a muslim, we believe whatever that has been revealed to Prophet Moses and all the other Jewish prophets (peace be upon them). No muslim is a true muslim if he doesn't believe in the Torah that has been revealed to Prophet Moses (peace be upon him). For that's the True Sacred words of Allah.

On the matter of salvation. The teaching of Judaism is somehow most similar to what Quran says.

I will tell you what the Quran says. Allah shall not forgive those who set up partners in worship with Him; another lower sin, He can forgive you if He wills.

From Surah Asr, Chapter 103. In ordinary situations, the condition for one to gain salvation are having Faith in the Oneness of God, doing righteous deeds, inviting one another into the Truth (Oneness of God) and having patience.

And it is in the Quran, which says. That some of the Jews and Christians, who follow the True Belief in the Oneness of God and do righteous deeds, shall enter heaven.

Most of the religions in the world says that if you believe in what we believe, you shall be saved.

But if someone enter Islam, nobody can promise him heaven. Actually the only thing that can be promised in Islam is hell. It is really easy to go to hell. But to make the way to heaven, it is not easy!

The devil very much know and believe in the existence and oneness of God, but that isn't doing him any good.

So if one wants to get to heaven, one must surrender and submit one's own will to his Almighty Lord, obey whatever God tells one to do, and do it in sincerity and peace. That's the meaning of Islam. This Arabic word simply means "surrender", "submit", "obey", "sincerity" and "peace". So one who surrender, submit, obey, be sincere and in peace with God, is a muslim (mu meaning doer, so muslim means "Islamer").

May peace be with you..
