Cheap Skate Mate,
As Michael Moore said today, the Koran mentions Jesus's name multiple times, citing him as a prophet. So, even though the Torrah (the Jewish sacred book) talks about a messiah, Islam recognizes Jesus Christ's divinity more so than Jews. Not like that should matter in this country of liberty, but as a Christian, I believe that’s a great thing about Islam.
Islam also has great life lessons, almost like another chapter of the Bible. I like the idea of kismet. It's the idea that an all-knowing-God, even if giving us the illusion of free will (which would be subjectively true), had to have always already knew what would happen after the Big Bang. God is outside of time, thus knows how it begins and ends.
Thanks for the awesome question,
