The 2nd commandment in the…

The 2nd commandment in the Judeo-Christian tradition says not to make graven images. Islam says [ليس كمثله شيء] (trans. Nothing resembles Him (Allah) in any way) it takes this to another, a higher level of realization (even the linguistic discussion on this phrase in Verse 42:11 is very long, plus this Qur’anic phrase forms the basis of many Islamic Belief principles).

The 3rd commandment in the Judeo-Christian tradition says not to use God’s name in vain. In Islam we reverence Allah’s Name in the proper way– for example, in grammatical analysis we say Lafdh al-Jalalah (the Majestic Name) is Marfu’ or Majrur, etc., not “Allah is Majrur” (that is, the literal translations of terms Marfu’ and Majrur is raised and pulled, and even though it is clearly within the context of grammatical analysis of words, our scholars have said to use ‘the Majestic Name’ instead of mentioning “Allah” directly in such a case).
