Sample Text:
It is understood that both religions see ‘children’ as a valuable, precious gift from God or Allah. It is highly believed that children are a strong blessing from a greater figure in both religious and great rewards will be gained from having children, both throughout and after life. I believe the Islamic book; the Qur’an has numerous Hadiths stressing the importance of marriage, family and having children in contrast to the Holy book of Christianity; the Bible.

University of Sydney - JCTC1001 - Palestine: Roman Rule To Islam

There are many different aspects to the person of Jesus, as he is presented in the Gospels, which are enriched and enhanced by knowledge of the Judaism of his time. Jesus of Nazareth was born a Jew and died a Jew, and since his life was so deeply engrained in his context, one will gain a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of his teachings by first understanding the Jewish framework of thought from which they arose.

How Islamic Texts Influence World Peace

This student studied:
University of Queensland - RELN1000 - World Religions

The notion of peace is associated with numerous concepts; is intricate and has many aspects. A literal definition advocates that peace essentially suggests that it is the absenteeism of brutality, dissension and warfare (Rummel); however, a more comprehensive outlook is necessary to completely value the complexity of this topic. It encompasses numerous other elements, including healthy relationships, financial and social stability, solidarity in recognising individuality, and a shrouded existence of equity within society. Ralph Waldo Emerson once commented on peace, "Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding." (Sarkis, 2011) The notion of peace can be arranged into two components – inner peace and world peace. It is evident that Islamic sacred texts strongly inform adherents on peace, allowing them to understand the complexity of peace; and references in sacred texts assist Muslims to contribute to the pursuit for world peace by applying Islamic teachings. Inner peace alludes to the lack of worry and tension and the existence of reflection, resilience and a spiritual engagement (Islam-guide). It is a time of tranquility and comfort that people encounter. World peace is the abstraction of friendship, joy, independence and equality throughout the World. It incorporates a global feeling of partnership and involvement. Peace is a chief focal point in many orthodoxies, including the Abrahamic faith of Islam.
