Excerpt from Research Paper:

Jewish values neither ban the rights of abortion, nor do they allow undiscerning abortion capabilities (Yadgar, 2006). Women who are the solitary carriers of their babies have the right to do whatever they want with their bodies; however in Judaism, abortion is only allowed if there is some deathly threat to mother. After testifying, men are obliged to have education as similar to the God who strived for improvement of this realm during his stay on this earth (Kaplan, 1983). One of the primary responsibilities of Jewish parents is to provide quality education and instructions to their children

After studying Islam, its beliefs, differences with other religions and the way it is interpreted one can question about interaction of Muslims with people belonging to other religions. According to Baianonie (2002), Islam's primary objective is to spread its teaching with freedom without forcing anyone to convert to Islam. Also, it aims to establish peace in this world through Islamic system of living. After the accomplishment of this goal, one needs to understand the diverse point-of-views now days. Everyone has the freedom to speak about their religion and talk about their values. Islam considers healthy relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims in order to maintain peace of this world.

To give the evidence of Muslims' healthy relationships with non-Muslims, Baianonie used examples of historical Muslim rulers who maintain good relationship with non-Muslims and conquered nations and lands. And they conquered all the lands and nations without the use of weapons and violence. However, due to different views and beliefs of people, there still exist many controversial issues between followers of different religions. Rood (1999) said that every man has the right to reject any religion he wants but he should not conceive followers of other religion as an enemy. He also stated that an individual must acknowledge the fact that every religion has its own morals and beliefs and each of it is treated equally by making valid approach towards their God.

The last prophet of Islam, Mohammed conveyed the messages of God to the followers of Islam and built fundamental beliefs as well asvalues regarding Islam. After the war took place between Mecca and Medina, Islam spread in many countries and thus became one of the largest faith being studied. After having followers in United States, there came diverged views and beliefs from individuals about Islam residing in States. The diverse views are then compared to Judaism and Christianity. This diversification is increasing day by day due to the increased number of followers of every religion which lead to many sensitive issues within Islamic world. According to this paper, people living in United States have the right to freely speak about their religion and beliefs which they have prevailed in their lifestyles. Studying different religions like Islam may enable a person to avoid negative assumptions about any religion; hence there will be fewer controversies.
