Judaism Christianity, and Islam, in contrast to Hinduism and Buddhism, are all monotheistic faiths that worship the God of Adam, Abraham, and Moses-creator, sustainer, and lord of the universe. They share a common belief in the oneness of God (monotheism), sacred history (history as the theater of God's activity and the encounter of God and humankind), prophets and divine revelation, angels, and Satan. All stress moral responsibility and accountability, Judgment Day, and eternal reward and punishment.

Also, peace is central to all three faiths. This is reflected historically in their use of similar greetings meaning “peace be upon you”: shalom aleichem in Judaism, pax vobiscum in Christianity, and salaam alaikum in Islam.

Judaism, Christianity, and Islam were all founded by Abraham.  While Christianity and Judaism trace their line to Jacob, a son of Abraham, the Muslims trace their ancestry to another son of Abraham: Isaac.

Judaism is by far the most ancient religion (formed out of Monotheism).  Christianity is an adaptation of Judaism, and Islam is a recitation of Christianity.
