Christianity, the world’s largest monotheistic religion, worships one God who is believed to be the creator of the universe. Christians believe in the Holy Trinity, which comprises God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.

2. Islam

Islam, the second-largest monotheistic religion, follows the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad and the holy book, the Quran. Muslims believe in Allah, who is considered the one true God and the creator of everything.

3. Judaism

Judaism, one of the oldest monotheistic religions, worships Yahweh (or Jehovah) as the one and only God. Jews believe in the covenant between God and the Jewish people and follow the teachings of the Torah.
