There are Muslims all over the Middle East and the world, some of the countries that have a big population of Muslims are Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan and India, and you also have some in Syria Arabia and Iraq and Iran. Islam plays a big part in the Middle East with their government and how things are done around that area. In the religion of Islam we know the name of Muhammad, he was the messenger that was sent by God or Allah to pass on the message. The prophet Muhammad was a messenger just as Jesus was. Muhammad was born in the year 570, he was born in mecca, and this is why Muslims pray 5 times towards mecca. Mecca is the city that the prophet was born.
“Christianity is the most popular religion in the world with over 2 billion adherents. 42 million Britons see themselves as nominally Christian, and there are 6 million who are actively practicing.” “Christianity is the world's biggest religion, with about 2.1 billion followers worldwide. It is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ who lived in the Holy Land 2,000 years ago.” (bbc.uo.uk) Christians have been worshiping one God; their God is the creator of everything that is on this earth. It is very important to understand that not every Christian will worship in the same way, it varies around the world.

• God the Father
• God the Son
• God the Holy Spirit” (bbc.uo.uk)

The word trinity is not found in the bible but is used to reference all three aspects of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit can be said that it is is God. Then we have the father and the son but the Holy Spirit was not created but either of those two but already had existed long before anything else was created. Christian also believes in angels, they are spiritual beings that help God. The definition of the word angels means messenger. The task of the angels were different to many people, some say that they were protectors of God’s people. This is why we now believe in guardian angels, this comes from some bible verses that say some of the...
