Hinduism teaches the act of Karma (do good and good will happen to you). Islam supports this act, and enhances it by adding that GOD could forgive some of your sins therefore morally speaking to every action there is reaction is not always true.

Islam Today is not the same as in the time of Muhammad. Muhammad and his followers followed the Quran alone. Whilst today’s Muslims have to rely on Hadith. Hadith was written 200 years after Muhammad's death, based on "Chinese whispers". Fortunately today we do not require Hadith, because all we need for our religious guidance is in the Quran including details of all practices of Islam (Salat, Zakat, Fasting, Hajj & Shahada).

Jainism stands for welfare of every being and the health of the Universe. Islam teaches us that human beings cannot fully be responsible for the welfare of every being and health of the Universe, because there are elements in it beyond our control. Hence only God is in total control for welfare of every being and health of the Universe.

Jehovah Witnesses base their beliefs on the text of the Bible. Muslims also base their belief's based on the text of the Quran. The Quran has recently been verified as the word of GOD, beyond doubt using the computers and the Miracle of 19 (74:30-35).

Shinto is a religion which also focuses on building relationships with spirits but they do not consider spirits to be gods. Instead Shinto gains power through the spirits. Islam discourages believers to gain power through spirit and considers them harmful. Islam encourages believers to ask GOD alone for his/her success.

Sikhism principles of Nam Japna, Kirt Karna and Vand Chhakna are also shared in Islam.

Spiritualism is focussed on communicating with the spiritual world to benefit the dead and living. Islam acknowledges the fact that spirits exist, but disagrees with the fact that we should communicate with them. The spirits are descendants of Satan, but there could be some who are believers.
