Mohammed taught that Allah not only created human beings, but created humanity "of the best stature".  Mohammed taught that Jesus was one  of a long line of human prophets, of which he was the last.  Mohammed taught that the topmost part of the meaning of  life is jihad--"holy war".  Mohammed taught that even a smile is considered as charity.  Mohammed taught that Jews and Christians have been worshipping Allah under a different name. Mohammed taught that Jesus is not God.  Mohammed taught that Jesus was a prophet, sent by God.  Mohammed taught that the true jihad is the internal struggle for holiness of life.  Mohammed taught that love was not as important as obedience or submission.  Mohammed taught that the most fundamental and virtuous jihad is the jihad against the self.

Mohammed taught that by our own efforts we can earn Allah's mercy, earn salvation and eventually earn paradise.  Mohammed taught that Christians should obey the gospel ("Injil," in Arabic), which he obviously considered them not to be obeying.  Mohammed taught "Zuhud," an Arabic word which means to denounce all the material things in life and turn towards God.   Mohammed taught that charitable loving kindness was one of the Five Pillars of Islam.  Mohammed taught that all men are brothers.  Mohammed taught that there is one true God who is the same God that Jews and Christians ("the People of the Book") worship.  Mohammed taught that there is sin in wine.  Mohammed taught that heaven is a place of physical pleasure for men.  Mohammed taught that Abraham brought Ishmael for sacrifice, not Isaac.  Mohammed taught that Jesus did not die; it was only apparent.  Mohammed taught that the Bible is the revealed book of the only mighty God and asked his followers to read it and believe in it and to pray facing Jerusalem.  Mohammed taught that people could turn into rats, monkeys and pigs.  Mohammed taught that compassion is a hallmark of a godly person.
