Christianity is a monotheistic religion that was founded by a man named Jesus. The origin of the religion is Judea now called Isreal. Christianity has now spread all throughout the world. This is because one of the actions that you need to do as a Christian is spreading the word of Jesus and God. Saint Peter and Saint Paul were two people who got the Christian church started. People who are Christian usually go to church once a week (statistically) and pray to the lord every day at least once. Christianity flows around the golden rule : "treat others as you would want to be treated" and if someone was to lash on you, you don't respond back in a violent or insulting way but just by turning the other cheek and "forgiving them". Christians also strongly believe in the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments, are "rules" that you need to follow in order to spend your resting life in peace. If you "disobey and act violently towards everyone" you end up having ever lasting suffer. Their resting places are either heaven or hell, depending on how you lived your life.

The founder of Islam was a man named Muhammad who to Muslims, is considered the prophet. Muslims are people who study Islam. The origin of Islam was Mecca in Saudi Arabia. It then spread because Muhammad and his followers spread his teachings which spread even more after his death. Islam is mostly found in the Middle East but because of the unsafe surrounding to some people, they left and spread out all over the globe. Muslims have mostly the same beliefs as Christians except instead of following the Ten Commandments they follow something called the Five Pillars. Also instead of the prophet being Jesus they believe it is Muhammad. They practice by following Shahada, salat, zakat, sawm, and hajj. Also just as Christianity they have two resting places, either heaven or hell.

I believe that with studding Islam it is the most "controlling" of your daily life than most any other religion. To start their day off they need to wake up at 5:30 every morning to pray. They then need to repeat prayer five times throughout the whole day. Also Muslims celebrate something called Ramadan which is when they fast for the whole day until a certain time where they then eat as much as they can after until it starts again in the morning. But since they need to follow the five pillars they also need to give to charity as a part of their life. Also during their life they need to go on a trip to Mecca as its required.
