For Christians, the Holy Bible is the word and the law, which they adhere strictly to in all aspects of their lives. For the Muslims, the Quran is the word of Allah which they follow closely.
Most people think that this religions can be in harmony, while others feel they should be at loggerheads. What do you think? Before you answer, here are some verses from both books that say the exact same thing on various subjects:
1. Zechariah and John
While speaking on the matter of Zechariah and his son John the Baptist, here is what the Quran says:
Quran 3:39: Then the angels called him, while he was standing in prayer in Al-Mihrab (a praying place or a private room), : “Allah gives you glad tidings of Yahya (John).”
And the Bible says:
Luke 1:11-13: Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense.… The angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John.
