Prayed often for forgiveness of his sins as did all the prophets in the Old Testament and New Testament . 

Waged no war, said his kingdom was not of this world so his followers should not fight. Jesus said those who live by the sword will die by the sword.  

Mohammad was a warrior who waged war numerous holy wars (Jihad) against infidels and pagans. Fighting or leading in sixty-six battles to spread his message of monotheism 

Ordered the death of no one but instead died in place of the guilty murderer and all who have sinned.

Still lingers in his grave awaiting the Day of Judgment by Jesus. 

The Bible inspires people to seek peace and the Gospel is called the Gospel of peace. The God of the Bible offers His love gives us a choice to choose. He does not want anyone to perish in their sins. 

The Qu’ran condones fighting for God and the cause of Islam when necessary.  It promotes genocide death to infidels and pagans and those who do not accept Islam when it is offered.    

Jesus is mentioned in the Quran 97 times 

Mohammad is mentioned in the Qu’ran 25 times 

Jesus is mentioned hundreds of times in the Bible 

Mohammad is mentioned not once in the Bible 

Jesus is called a prophet, priest and King (king of all Kings) 

Mohammad is called an apostle in the Qu’ran and a prophet in Islam 

Old Testament predicts His 2nd coming in more Scriptures than his first, which are 600 detailed accounts. 

Mohammad had only one self fulfilling prophecy, nothing in the Old Testament predicted his coming. 

Over 1,500,000,000 claim to be His followers are known for their dedication, love, and caring for others. Building hospitals feeding the poor and helping to educate people all over the world showing the compassion of the God they serve. 

1 billion are followers who are dedicated, zealous and still use force if necessary against non Muslims in their land where Islam is the countries religion. 

Christ prophesied of the end of the age and what it would be like when He comes again. He will save Israel from her enemies. The Old and  New Testament prophecies will be fulfilled by his 2nd coming. 

There is no teaching on Mohammad coming back again to rule or reign. Islam actually teaches Christ is coming back.
