People compare Muhammad to Jesus because they don’t understand Islam
People compare the Koran to the Bible because they don’t understand Christianity.

    So, should we compare Muhammad to the Bible, or compare Jesus to the Koran?
    Or have I missed something obvious.

    • Jesus to the Koran, yes — God’s Word to God’s Word… Ultimate revelation to ultimate revelation.

      Muhammad to the Bible… no… that is comparing prophet to prophecy — or carrier of revelation to prophecy…

      To extend the first comparison — I can compare Muhammad to Mary… or if I want to by mystical I can compare Muhammad to the Church.

      The Bible is a bit more tricky — as it is a lesser revelation to the Incarnation… my best guess is that the closest equivalent Islam has to the Christian Bible is a subset of the Christian Bible (Torah, and the Gospels.) I would guess that Muslims would not touch the epistles.
