This paper explains that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, sometime between 8 BC and 29 AD, of virgin birth; whereas, Mohammed was born in a well-to-do family in Mecca (in present-day Saudi Arabia) in 570 AD and was raised by his uncle Abu Talib,the leader of the Hashim clan of the Quraish tribe. The author points out that the death of Jesus and Mohammed did not impede the growth of their religions mainly due to the efforts of their disciples. The paper relates that, although moderate Muslims emphasize the peaceful character of the religion, the extremist elements among the Muslims emphasize the aspects of Mohammed's teachings relating to "Jihad" and his military conquests; however, Jesus' message is purely non-violent and stresses the infinite love of God for humanity.
