Jesus of Nazareth, king of Israel. Muhammad Ali, prophet of Islam. Jesus, main teacher of the Christianity religion, and prophet Muhammad, main teacher of the Islamic religion.

As they approached the tomb they saw that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb. When they looked inside the tomb, the body of Jesus was not there anymore, only the cloth where he was wrapped in. Jesus appeared to them saying that he will be back soon, and he does not leave them empty handed but he left the holy spirit. On the contrary, Muhammad did not resurrect from the dead, he stayed
