    No Abrahamic religion is originally western cultural. The difference between judeo-christianity and Islam is Judeo-christianity is changed much to suit the western cultural but Islam is not changed at all. ISLAM IS WHAT IT IS. It can't be changed to suit people's needs.

    No. Both Judaism & Christianity are also middle-eastern faiths. It's just that the ideas of Islam are totally alien to western society whose values have grown up around the original Juedo-Christian culture that came from the middle-east centuries before Islam was devised.

    If you're worried about the Western influences on Western Christianity, look at the Eastern and Oriental Churches. For example, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which was established before the classic 'Western' countries had even received missionaries.

    Say: we believe in Allah and that which is revealed to us; we believe in what was revealed to ABRAHAM, ISHMAEL, ISAAC, JACOB and the tribes; to MOSES AND JESUS AND THE OTHER PROPHETS, We make no distinction between any of them, and TO GOD WE HAVE SURRENDERED OURSELVES. Quran Sura 2, The Cow, verse 136. i.e. in full submission and obedience.

    O People of Faith, Allah has made us brothers under the banner of Abraham. He has shown us our various rites and rituals and guided us on the right path. He has laid upon our shoulders the responsibility for human brotherhood and social reform. He has urged us to exert our best efforts for the establishment of peace, compassion and universal humanness:

    People said that all religions lead to God. However, instinctively I knew without any doubt that there is one God, one system of life, one truth, and one path leading to it. There couldn’t be many diverging paths that were so contradictory! The Jews hate Jesus, the Christians love him, other religions ignore him and some others do not even know him. Are they all true?

    The Infinite Creator should be worshipped in all places for He is everywhere....no place is more sacred than another, but every place sacred for the prayer. Whenever there is a devout humble mind that looks to God, God is there. A mind free from sin is the true temple of God.

    Accept this invitation, therefore, and enjoy a life of peace and satisfaction on earth, then everlasting life in God's Paradise. The true scripture promises all this to those who choose NO OTHER GOD EXCEPT THE ONE TRUE GOD WHO WAS WORSHIPPED BY ABRAHAM, MOSES,JESUS, AND MUHAMMAD (peace be upon them all).

    “And this Qur’an is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allah (Lord of the heavens and the earth), but it is a confirmation of (the Revelation). Which was before it [i.e. the Taurat (Torah) and the Injil (Gospel)and a full explanation of the Book (i.e., laws decreed for mankind)---from the Lord of the Worlds”.(Qur’an 10:37)

    “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” (Qur’an 3:85)

    Jesus pbuh birthplace Bethelhem,syria,lebanon,palestine.jordan all of them are 99%muslims.

    All of them accepted islam and agree with Quran about Jesus pbuh.and his life and message of islamic monotheism.

    Roman pagans used to worship triune gods before Jesus pbuh was even born.After the ascensions of Jesus pbuh to heavens Romans and jews fabricated Bible accordingly to accommodate roman pagan trinity into Christianity.Westerners are blindly following this roman trinity in the name of Jesus pbuh which indeed is polytheism,nothing to do with message of islamic monotheism contained in Torah and Injeel given to Moses and Jesus pbuth.
