I know that there is Christian Communism. And, no disrespect, Islam is very similar to Christianity. Sure, I don't see why not.

why add the "no disrespect part" :) Muslims believe the bible was the same as the quar'an but then got edited. Same with the Torah

I just didn't want you to find what I was saying offensive. I don't normally worry about such a thing, so you're privileged, in that sense.

Islam is very similiar to Christianity.

No they are not similar. They are different. I know the difference between Islam and Christianity.

-Islam believes that Jesus came down from the cross and became a muslim

-Islam believes that Gabriel the archangel is the Holy Spirit

-Islam believes that when Jesus comes down for His second coming that Jesus will kill all the Christians because they didn't believe in Allah.

-Christianity believes that Jesus is God and not Allah

-Gabriel the archangel is not the Holy Spirit it is Jesus

-When Jesus comes for His second coming He will take His followers and people who believed in Him

-Jesus died on the cross and He never went off the cross

-Jesus rose from the grave.

Also when Islam teaches that Jesus came off the cross. Christianity teaches that if there is no ressurection then are teachings our useless and there would be no salvation and we would still be a slave to sin and dead in our sins.

-"Islam believes that Jesus came down from the cross and became a Muslim"- Nope we believe that Jesus was saved by Allah and that he was never crucified.

-"Islam believes that when Jesus comes down for His second coming that Jesus will kill all the Christians because they didn't believe in Allah." That's not true, we believe Jesus will rule the Earth for 40 years before the day of judgment.

Allah is literally Arabic for God, Allah is in the Arabic bible.

We believe Gabriel is an angel, the angel who spoke to Muhammad.

"Also when Islam teaches that Jesus came off the cross"-Jesus was never crucified in the first place, according to Islam.

They are incredibly similar. I know you're only saying what you're saying through ignorance, but do some research before you comment. Besides, it doesn't change my answer that Islam and communism are compatible.

Obviously they differ on opinions on specific details, such as most of what you listed, but would you say that Islam is closer to Christianity than Hinduism, or Taoism, or something.

I would hazard a guess that you don't know many Muslims? There's much more to Islam than you see on the news, were I a Christian, I would see no issue being similar to Islam, it shouldn't be a negative (if that's how you're taking it).

-Islam believes that Jesus came down from the cross and became a Muslim

Balls... Where do you get all this from? Islam wasn't even there yet then. How can he have converted?

-Islam believes that when Jesus comes down for His second coming that Jesus will kill all the Christians because they didn't believe in Allah.

Crap dude... Wouldn't possibly since he brought Christianity about and besides he is suppose to lead the judgment day.

-Gabriel the archangel is not the Holy Spirit it is Jesus

What is the big difference man?

-Christianity believes that Jesus is God and not Allah

Yeah, but Jesus is called a prophet which is treating him next Prophet Mohamed. Who is treated equal to God.

No they are not similar. They are different. I know the difference between Islam and Christianity.*

Which is why they are only similar and not same.

Yes , similar. Except for the part they deny the divinity of Christ, and his death and resurrection. Which is the essential doctrine of Christianity. well ...

Have you read the Q'ran? It's basically just a plagiarism from Christianity. The things that you're complaining about are surprisingly more trivial than I think you believe.

Islam is a religion; communism is an economic system. They are not mutually exclusive.

You can be anything you want to, it's a free world. It is a free world because neither communists or muslims took over yet, in fact.

I know of a few, apparently it is.

I might be able to get a few in touch on here.

I'm a Satanist and a Communist, so sure, anything is possible :P

OMG... YES Satanist and Communist possible but Muslim and Communist impossible. The Communist Party of the Soviet Union and some Islam teaching are different,Communism is the doctrine of the conditions of the liberation of the proletariat. .... joining the proletarian movement but Islam is science ,Communism is a type of government that relies on collectivization of labor and good to equal out the classes. Muslims rely just to God and his laws , thats' why person can't be Muslim and Communist..

During the Communism the religion was prohibited.
