Abrahamic religion
Belief systems or religions are perhaps the strongest force in society. All of these beliefs are important to each religion in their own way. They’re what make each religion individual and special. Each of these religions had its own beliefs and sacred texts, though all shared some concepts. In the Middle East, the three great world religions-Judaism, Christianity, and Islam had both share some similarities and differences. Christianity is the biggest out of the three making up to 33.4% of the world’s population and Islam comes in second making up to 17.7% of the world’s population. And the 3 religions are monotheistic religions also broken down in sects, namely they believe that there is only one God and all three religions believe that this God is the origin and source of all that exists also three religions believe that human beings are the highest creatures here on earth.

Christianity god is Abraham just like Islam and Judaism trinity consists of three persons. Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit are considered to be an essence of the God. Bible is the final revelations of God. The bible consists of The Old Testament Christians believe in the life after death. Those who believe in Jesus will be forgiven and saved, whereas, the unbelievers would face eternal punishment. Most Christians attend worship services at church on Sundays, which generally include singing, prayer and a sermon. Most Christian churches have a special ritual for ordination, or designating a person fit for a leadership position in the church. At home, most practicing Christians pray regularly and many read the Bible.
In Islam God created heavenly beings called angels to serve God and they are opposed by evil spirits. God sent his prophets to the earth at their appointed times, and the Prophet Muhammad was the last and greatest messenger of God. There will be a last day of world history called the Day of Judgment. Good and evil will be weighed in the balance. The wicked will be punished and the just will enjoy eternal life in Paradise. Everything in the universe has a predetermined course. Nothing happens without the will or knowledge of God. Muslims hold six articles of belief. There is only one God without limit, called Allah. Muhammad received the Qur'an as a copy of the eternal Qur'an which is inscribed in heaven.
Judaism has 613 commandments. The central religious belief of Judaism is that there is only one God. Monotheism was uncommon at the time Judaism was born, but according to Jewish tradition, God himself revealed it to Abraham, the ancestor of the Jewish people. Beginning with Abraham, God has always taken special care of the Hebrews (who would later become the Jews). After rescuing them from slavery in Egypt, God revealed the Ten Commandments to Moses, and many more religious and ethical guidelines in the Torah. Many of the guidelines (mitzvah) emphasized ritual purity and the importance of remaining set apart from the surrounding polytheistic cultures.
