  1. Islam is best religion in the world iam proud to say iam Islam we love Islam even my last heart beat I will pray ………to ahalla ……..

  2. All religion teaches us humanity and rightfull living, kindness, forgiveness etc etc. above any religion we need to remember we are all humans and god is one. Different religion are just different paths we can take with the same destination. God.

  3. Since jesus never claimed to be god in his own words why did other christianity author’s called him a god for sure jesuse will not forgive all those that called him god instead god servant and we have to aks our selves that there a god bound to him self lol islama is the only reglion but for those that are so lurcky

    • The Father. Who is mentioned through all scripture at God. Jesus says in his own words. “Yeah, dude, he and I are the same guy’ john: 10:30

  4. Jesus* in the name their is power please practicalite it in market
    just be speaking Muhammed! Muhammed no one will turned to you but tried Jesus christ and answer your self.

    • This comment is hilarious. Satanist cult? Satanists? C’mon, think about that comment…it’s got a sense of irony, don’t you think?

      You are a hateful, ignorant bigot and should be deeply ashamed of yourself as a human being. Having studied now 14 different religions, I have yet to come across one that does not support tolerance and kindness so, depending on your religion, it is far more likely that you are, in fact, on a path to hell for making a comment like that. If you are not religious, I would think you possess a sense of morality and humanity, which should inhibit you from writing that. I worry for you if it doesn’t. Abrahamic religions have some very distinct similarities and, in ethos, are very similar….if Muslims are on a path to hell, well I guess Christians are too – hell will be busy with so much of the world’s population.

      The Quran teaches tolerance and teaches values for a just society and human conduct in line with our innate morality and to support a well-functioning society – I suggest that you need that in your life very much.

      I am an atheist and yet have a deep interest in the bases and drivers of religious beliefs and spirituality. Educate yourself broadly – it helps.

      I suspect I’ve used words that are just a bit too big for you seeing as you lack the ability to put together a comment that makes sense. I’ll make it simple – you are offensive and ignorant.

    • Why are the moderators of this site not monitoring for comments that are so inappropriate? There are people here inciting hate

    • this is a crazy comment towards those who practice muslim.. don’t judge other as easy as that specially if you never been a part of that group.

      I’m not a muslim but I have a friend who are muslims and I can say that they are good people and I respect them.

      and note there is no exact *name of religion that will surely go to heaven, be good and the heaven will be good to you..

      #Share the love whatever your religion and learn the word Respect..

    • Johan why so serious?
      Remember that Allah is the Greatest Deceiver. (Quran 3:54)
      I decided to check out your claim and You are nothing but a LIAR! Please get your facts straight about Quran!
      This is what the Quran says… And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners. (Quran 3:54)
      https://quran.com/3:54.

  5. I’m sikh…..I’m proud on my religion because my religion says all is one, taught to help people in need, fight against injustice, give 10% of your earning to people in need, to be a good person you do not need to meditate at the mountains and in forests, you can be a good person in your social life aswell.

  6. Guys, this is our testing life, so please search for the right God because on the judgement day we are not going to get a chance to come on earth again and prove and beware of satan as he want to betray all the human beings and want them to be in Hell with him. Hope so everyone agrees to it.
    Later when Jesus or EESA Aly salaam comes than the satan would be killed and then no one would be betrayed by satan but before that If you die in wrong religion then just remember need to go to hell. Please wake up…….

  7. WHAT I JUST HAVE TO SAY IS THAT DONT FIGHT AGAINST RELIGIONS ! BELIEVE IN YOUR GOD , YOUR FAITH ,YOUR RELIGON .ITS SAID ONE RELIGEON ONE GOD ONE FAITH! AMEN

  8. Allah is the real almighty. eesa alaihsalam is only a nabi after prophet muhammad has come all the men and women has to convert in islam otherwise hell(jahannam)will be given and in hell(jahannam)there are many very very very huge large snakes and scorpines and everywhere fires were burning

    • False Jesus Christ is the only word of god also told by prophet Muhammad in kuran Christ was sinless and born sinless he is rooh Allah in kuran and is the form of god no one can come to God except through Jesus Christ and he is going to judge the world on judgement day kayamat every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord you all read bible and kuran carefully

      • This written in Qur’an because we all know that Jesus Christ was born with out any men. So naturally question about that how it possible? So Prophet Muhammad (S.W) …. For kind information every prophet are sinless & pure.

        • Adam sinned and by having children that sin was passed on and got inherited and thereby every body are sinners. Jesus is son of God not a prophet and he was born sinless and died so that we sinners by accepting him,he absorbs our sins so that we can enter Gods kingdom pure

  9. I grew up Catholic. One of the precepts (?) was that those who don’t believe in Jesus Christ cannot be saved. What if one has never heard of Jesus Christ? I believe so much of religious faith is tradition, what you grew up with. We all learn from our fathers, and mothers. God is with you, whatever you believe, even if you don’t believe.

    • I’m working on a program of songs from the faiths of the world. What is your favorite “religious” song? One that anyone, not just one from your religion can sing. Thank you.

    • If this is true, then what is the point of Christianity? The whole point of Jesus dying on the cross was so that He could restore the broken relationship between God and man. He is the mediator between death and life. If you can just get into heaven however you want, even if you don’t believe in Jesus, then really, what did he die and come back to life for?

      “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that all those who believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16

      “For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.” -Romans 3:28

      “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus” -Romans 3:23-24

      “I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.” – Galatians 2:21

  10. Can I ask to all the christian who give a comment on this article?
    why you guys said that jesus is “SON of GOD”?
    is your GOD can be a human then give a son to Jesus mother?

    • “is your GOD can be a human then give a son to Jesus mother?” You got me with this one pal. Woowee look out guys, we have a keyboard warrior on our hands. Uh oh, is my GOD can be a human then give a son to Jesus mother?
      How about this, I’ll try to make a real sentence.
      “If my God was a human, then how did he give His son to Jesus’ Mother?” Is possibly what you were trying to say?.. our God is three in one. The Father Spirit and Son.
      The father a being who created everything that is reality.
      The Son. God who is flesh human and God. Who died to atone our sin.
      And Spirit who guides the believers life.
      They all are different and work different but are one Trinity.Jesus was also there in the beginning. John 1:1

  11. Christianity is the only religion approved by GOD Almighty an making it a solid foundation through JESUS CHRIST our Savior so making Heaven and sitting with GOD at d end of this life can only happen to those who believe an trust in JESUS. I am proud to be a Christiana an I will die a Christian.

    • I don’t believe is Santa Claus. So why should I believe in God. These are just stories trying to explain the world. Heaven is wishful thinking.

    • JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE ,ONLY RELIGIOUS LEADER WHO IS THE SON OF GOD ,BORN BY MARY ,WHO WAS WITH GOD AND NOW IS WITH GOD , AND THE ONLY ONE WHO DIED FOR OUR SINS . JESUS IS THE ONLY WONDERFUL AMAZING . HAIL MERCY!

  12. But PRACTICING christians are not many..most of them do not even know about their holy book…….i guess christians should be called christians only if they FOLLOW christianity

  13. This article is inaccurate on its description of Christianity. The author states that Christianity is based on the teachings and preaching of Jesus Christ. Although Jesus’ teachings make up part of Christian belief, the basis of Christianity is Jesus’ death and resurrection as a sacrifice for sin. If there was no resurrection, Christianity would not exist, and no one today would have ever heard of Jesus.

  14. Jesus Christ is true son of GOD Almighty.HE is the only begotten son of our GOD, and whosoever believeth in him will not perish but have everlasting life.I give GOD all the glory and thanks for knowing the truth and a christian .Glory to the most HIGH JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH for being a christian and knowing the truth.

  15. hinduism has divided people into varnas and many kulas.many upper caste people are violently killing and raping the lower caste people.in india there are many cruelities happening on lower castes especially on daliths.world countries should help daliths from caste discrimination.caste feelings are rooted in hinduism.it should be destroyed.

    • Like many religions, there is a significant difference between the intent and ethos of Hinduism, the misinterpretation of it and the application of it taking into account a recent and current cultural environment. Culture and religion are two different beasts. I would encourage you to read some of the Hindu texts – there is much to read, but it includes elements of a number of major religions.

  16. hinduism is full of castes.some caste people are being humiliated by upper castes.lower caste people are converting to other religions to live peacefully.

  17. Hey guys, I’m just stoping by to say that I’m seeing a lot of many different replies to the religion debates. I’ve been seeing mostly “Allah is the one true god,” “Jesus Christ is the one true son of God, and I love him,” “Hinduism is the oldest and best religion,” or “Guys, it’s all about humanity.

    Humanity is a religion.” I just wanted to say that none of you truly know what God or belief is correct. I’m personally Christian, so I believe in God and Jesus Christ (who was Jewish. I saw some people say he was Arab, and that’s not actually true), but I may be incorrect. And I’m okay with that. Allah could be the true God, and all the Muslim teachings could be right, and I could be wrong. Maybe there is no God to begin with. Maybe there are millions of Gods. All Im saying is that no one knows what is true. We base our beliefs on books and things we’ve been told, so really, there’s a 50/50 chance we’re being told the truth and we’re being lied to. I’m just saying. Go easy on other people for their belief, and please don’t claim that you alone ‘know’ what religion is the correct one. Even my fellow Christians.

    Let’s all calm down, and accept that we are really just humans who know nothing about the higher forces. But, like I said earlier, I am Christian myself, so I’m not saying that there is no God in general. There is a chance there isn’t a God, but I believe there is one. Not everyone believes that, and that’s okay. You can believe what you believe. Because you haven’t been proven wrong, and you haven’t been proven wrong. The only time in our natural lives do we know if our religion is correct is when we pass away, and if you’ve typed something on here or you’re reading this comment, then you have not passed away, and therefore you don’t really know which religion is correct (including atheism).

    • Agreed. Adding to that, all religions should be treated with the utmost respect. I’m also Christian however not believing in other religions does not give me the right to attack them. That goes for any and everyone. That being said, I wouldn’t put up with someone talking bad about my religion do why would I ever want to do that? Those types of comments really hurt people. Fight for what you believe in, guys. It’s who YOU are so why should others care? Embrace it.
      By the way I’m a 14 year old girl. I don’t know everything. I’m not the smartest person. I’m just speaking out of experience. Don’t let people tell you what to believe in!

      • but they r destroyed our church and killing us bcoz of faith in Jesus so what to do ?even they don’t respect us Bible say forgiveness is Divine

    • Well-written and thank you. I have studied many religions and what’s happening on this message board is shocking and, I suggest, in opposition to the teachings of all the religions I’ve looked at! I actually didn’t know such hate was so prevalent…or maybe I didn’t want to believe it. It seems that people are taking real and perceived individuals’ acts and generalising to an entire religion. I think history has taught us where this leads.

      I’m an atheist and undertook to understand religion and spirituality because I’m interested in why people are drawn to such beliefs. Faith is personal – there is no right and wrong because no one can know for sure…that’s why it’s called ‘faith’.

      Support your comment and tolerance of other views.

  18. Christianity has the highest population than f**king religion Islam and we are all know that Christian is the best region that can take us to heaven through jesus the only son of God

    • Why are you using that language, if you’re a Christian? Practice what you preach. That makes the real lovers of Christ look bad. People who love God don’t talk like that. Yes, we fail and sin everyday, we’re not perfect, but we can try to be better each day.

  19. I am a Christian n m so glad about it that i came to know the truth..
    And Jesus is gonna come soon ..
    He was there,he is there,he will be there..
    So as our bible says love our enemies..let’s do accordingly..n let god himself judge those people according to their deeds…
    But those who have know Jesus have been saved..
    N Jesus is gonna come soon…
    Amen.

  20. proud to be Christian , God said love neighbor, love your friends , love your family, love each other , be nice to people that you meet in your life, God never teach us to hurt other ,,,

    i love you all guys

  21. Hey….you all first come to know man…..who is jesus….his name is eshaa…we all muslims respect eesha bcoz he is one of the follower of Allah…his name is mentioned in many places in quran…..

  22. If a muslim states ” hevean is only for muslims”, we hindhus say”let every good get good”. See the difference in openion. Let good give a good person a good thing.

  23. Budham sharan gachami!!
    Budham sharanam gachami!
    Sangham sharanam gachami!!
    Budham sharanam gachami.
    Let truth alone prevails!!
    Let peace alone prevails..!!!!

  24. Im proud of being a Hindu!!!!
    It is the mother of all religion on this planet. The concept of religion in Hinduism is so broad that it accepts almost every usefull and meaning full tradition in the world.

  25. Jesus is the only truth in this world!!
    Except Jesus Christ nothing is correct, nothing is real. He is the Almighty!! Amen. Amen.amen.amen.amen…..

  26. I only believe in Jesus because he gave his life for us in the cross. To repent our sins ……praise the lord …..jesus saves ..amen….

  27. there is nothing called religion in this world. its all we people create our own groups and name them and then call it a religion. thats it.

  28. how can u blame islamic people so easily?? i mean.. we all know there is lot of bloodshed all over.. but we cannot blame all the people right? there are lots of islamic people all over the world.. and in india too.. they might be your neighbours too.. just go and check them!

  29. Don’t believe statues .
    Statues are made from stones
    Stones and this world made by allah. Its small example for to think.
    Allah is the one. .

    Guys see your hand uur figures shows allah in Arabic latters

  30. Isn’t it funny how everyone believes their one is the only true religion? All of you would probably have another religion had you been born to other parents, in another part of the world, or before your country was conquered by a foreign power. Accept this and you will be more tolerant of the beliefs of others.

    • Exactly. People need to think that no one comes with a seal or stamp during their birth that states their religion. It’s just that they go with something they didn’t opt for. Once people widen their thoughts, all these communalism, racism won’t be there.

  31. Wait, this article is all over the place. It says that Christianity is the “biggest religion” right after saying that Hinduism is the “majority religion in this world” so which is it?

  32. Actually Hinduism is the great religion and it teaches the right path to salvation. Maybe because of misunderstandings, disputes and caste systems people in Indian subcontinent converted to other religions. That’s why now Hinduism is being diminished.

    • At first you have to go to hell. Anyone doesn’t come with a seal of saying which religion he or she belongs. It is the biggest mistake we make. There should be no religions and there will be no fights.

    • You all disgust me. Nobody likes you muslims. If you guys are so so so great, why are you all blowing shit up? Isn’t your religion the religion of peace? Your are all lying f**ks who just move to other countries as beggars, asking for help, and not accustoming yourself to our way of living, rather demanding that we grow accustomed to your close minded lifestyle. Your religion is nothing more than propaganda which you use to grow your following, and eventually establish your shitty religion as the dominating religion of the world.

      • The Islamic belief has what we English-natives call “The Holy War,” and really, I can’t blame the Muslims for fighting for their religion. It’s what the Qu’ran teaches, and so they truly believe they are fighting for Allah, and they are spreading the name of Allah. It may not be peaceful, but the Islamic faith is based on the spreading of Allah, and this is what the Holy War is. The spread of the name of Allah.

      • You are such a horrible person. You have really upset some people here and I believe that we should not be talking trash about other sacred religions. How would you like it if someone said that about Christianity? You should go and get a life if all you can do is be an idiot online.

      • You are such a horrible person! Your comment is awaiting moderation since you have really hurt some people. You should go and get a life rather than waste it discriminating other people’s religions.

      • I AM A CHRISTIAN . U SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN THAT RUDE ! BELIEVE IN GOD AND FEAR THE LORD WICH LEADS TO WISDOM THATS ENOUGH FOR OUR CHRIST!

      • This is the most disgusting thing I have ever read. Sickening. This person has been reading propaganda to achieve a view like that…coupled with hate, ignorance and bigotry.

        I hope muslim people don’t think this is a prevalent view.

  33. Islam is number one, because allot of people say that they are christian but they dont practise what they preach.

    • Islamic religion is real failure and a disappointment to human race and the world.Have you ever seen a video where a so called muslims fellow read a there holy book ‘Quran ‘after all the rituals the victim was beheaded and all the muslim was so happy, singing and saying it was the pratice in the religion .Is so aweful and wicked, so many houses was burnt and christians killed on daily basis because they refuse to practise the Islamic religion and says all must obey or they will be kill.Can you believe this !Please if i may ask what kind of relationship is that when all you pratice is to kill.

      • ya I agree. U guys shouldn’t kill.How would u like it if u were the person who was killed?????????????Ok probably u won’t known if u were killed, but STILLLLLLLL…!!!!I am a christian and I believe that GOD is LOVE.eVN IF U GUYS ARE OF ANOTHER RELIGON, ITS JUST SO WRONG TO KILL

    • Of course it’s Christianity because the term “Christians” is the main word for people who believe in Jesus Christ. It’s three major churches are Eastern Orthodox Church, Protestantism and of course Roman Catholic Church. That’s why it’s the first because Catholics alone are 1.2 billion around the world plus other Christian religions 🙂

  34. even i din’t know there were so many religions. i thought its only islam, hindu and christian all over world. good that i found this article.

  35. we’re all of one single religion and that is ‘human’ religion. come on people please stop being like allah is the only god or jesus is the only.. let us first respect our single religion.

  36. The real religion is islam….it is a religion of peace though some people are misusing it…nd it’s also the most ancient…

    • It don’t matter you guys don’t believe in love. Your religion don’t believe GOD can do all things. But us christans we believe GOD has sent his son JESUS CHRIST to die for us so we can be saved. The love of our father in heaven to send his one and only son to die so we could have life. And to know that GOD can and will make a miracle like that happen speaks truimph.

    • Islam is the reason why terrorism is so wide spread in the world. There is lot of bloodshed daily only because of islamic groups.

      • you stupid u hindu remained in shadow of muslims foe more than 1000 years and still you are against them they should eleminate you from the earth

    • A Religion which lived by the sword dies by the sword.Your days are numbered.
      Nobody has to do anything to eliminate this scourge Islam.
      You are as it is killing each other in all over the Middle East .
      One Muslim killing another Muslim

      • SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN THAT RUDE …. I AM CHRITIAN TOO JUST BELIEVE IN OUR GOD ALMIGHTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PRAISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Hinduism is the most ancient religion and later other religions came to life. That’s why it is the greatest religion. It shows a way for life. It is the right path to salvation.

    • Rishika sister if you are a hindu so please tell me , why hindus have created gods statues?? I am not a hindu but if you read the hindu scriptures,they say very clearly “THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND YOU MUST NOT DRAW A PICTURE OF HIM..OR CREATE HIS STATUE”,and you hindus have a lot of gods..like baghvan,hanumaan,ganpati pappa…and many many more..and sister if you don’t believe me so please just READ your hindu scriptures…like sita..and many others..SISTER I REALLY RESPECT YOU AND I WANT YOU TO GO TO THE HEAVEN (EVERYBODY WOULD LIKE TO GO TO HEAVEN) SO PLEASE READ THE HINDU SCRIPTURES..AND TELL IT TO OTHER HINDUS. THANK YOU AND LOTS OF LOVE , FROM MARIA p.s. please reply….if you have read my comment

      • u are right ,there is no god but ALLAH no dout its 101% true..there is a heaven n hell no dout & may allah give all humanity a heaven

  38. Islam is the powerful and Correct religion i am not denying christinity . . . in Our holly book Quran Essa a.s (jesus) is mentioned . . . but the last prophet Mohammad is the last messenger Of Allah .. even we believe that Jesus christ (Essa a.s) will return to the world as a muslim according to his prayer and will b a fight to devil before just end of the world .. .

  39. Hinduism for me is not a religion but a thought and way of life. It just leads you to sanity and heaven. It is just a gift from the ancestors that they are leading us to moksha.

  40. Jesus, Allah, ram! Come on people. It’s all about humanity here. We all have to worship our mother earth and save her. She saves us. That’s why I hate people talking about their gods.

  41. Is anyone heard Dr. Zakir Nayek he,s Indian scholar God gave him a lot of knowledge about religion. I want to tell people who do idle worship please listen to him. He have a lot of knowledge about Hinduism Islam Christianity.

  42. jesus saves….. christianity is not only the religion but it is the only way to enter the kingdom of heaven… praise the lord

  43. Amen. for as Jesus said as his kingdom will be the greatest of all, there it is. Thank you God for proving this to us show this other people who you really are.

  44. Hinduism is the most ancient of the world. It started with earliest civilizations of India. It dates back to vedas. But later after conversions it lost its number.

    • But it’s wrong for you to think that people should only be of Hinduism. Maybe there would have been some loop holes in the religion like discrimination, castes and that’s why people converted to other religions. It’s the nature. But I think all of the human kind should be one. All are equal and all are bound to die one day. And we don’t carry religion straps when we die and our souls leave our body.

    • Conversions happend onpy because there were flaws. Not in the religion but the people who compelled to follow. So, Christianity, Islam all had various perspectives so people tend to change.

    • That because there is a God who is greater then everything and loves YOU with an endless love! And the only thing he wants from you is that you believe in him ( JESUS) Give him your life and you will have a home in heaven with an endless love for you! this goes for everybody who’s watching this ! Jesus love you . God bless! sry got a bit off track

    • But one has to know whose problem is it. The caste system and discrimination gas led to all these. I want to tell that wherever there is only one religion in the nation, it is peaceful. That’s why if there is only one region on the world, it would be the most peaceful.

      • the problem though is that if one group or one specific religion becomes very popular, it can fall apart from things like corruption, almost like an empire. Take the Roman Catholic Church for an example. I’m a Catholic, and honor the Pope, however I believe that if Catholicism would be the only religion in the world, the Pope, who has supreme authority over the church for this religion, would be given waaayyy too much power as a human. Of course, there are religions where there aren’t any “heads”, but that was the first thing that came to mind. I think its important for there to be different religions, but all with the same goal in mind (God), so that everyone can see the uniqueness of their own purpose and journey, whereas their interpretations of how they should worship and follow God may differ but all beliefs end up with the same results.

    • The earliest recorded history is from Mesopotamia and those are biblical. Further when Jesus came to earth there already were many religions, so Jesus came to guide us to the true God, the God who created this world, who created Adam and Eve and all other. Jesus you are right he really lived in this earth but Vishnu is from a story Ramakrishna

  45. Indeed. There shouldn’t be any religion discrimination in the world. All are equal. We are all one religion. I belive Hinduism is the most ancient religion or I call it as way of life for those who follow it. It started from long long ago in much prior to any civilizations.

    • Being a good human being, wishing for the wellness of the humanity is the best religion to be followed. Each of the religions have great, unique preaches and values and they are all said for the betterment of human lives and worth to be followed.

  46. I just Believe in one religion and that’s is bieng human and I don’t know how many people are in it but I respect all the religions it is someone individual choice

  47. There are alot of cultures in the world and if only these made it to the top in growing rapidly shows that these religion really separate them for others although diffrent religions have different restrictions but the religion with the least restrictions make to the top

  48. Amazing fact I didn’t even knew so many religion are there hahaha but it’s quite the information for me as I love travelling abroad and now I will know how to behave in diffrent countries having diffrent cultures
