The answer is very easy: Because Islam is not a religion like any other religion on the Earth. You cannot compare Islam with Christianity, or Hinduism, or Buddhism or Sikhism or Judaism, or any other religion. For one reason: because it is the religion of Allah. Words I love to Conclude. It is time to find out about Islam. It is time to find out about the truth by using your own Mind. A Time for Thought. A Time for Change. A Time for Action.
Every religion is different from each other. Islam does not form any visualization of Allah (God), whilst other religions like Buddhism have statues and images of their god. That is One example of what makes Islam unique as well as Christianity.
It is the one religion which not only allows but commands believers to take up arms to fight for the faith. It is the major religion of terrorists and bombers and kills more of their own religion than any other religion.

Islam is unlike any other religion because it is not merely a belief to which one adheres, but rather Islam is a complete way of life. Muslims put their beliefs into practice on a daily basis. Islam provides guidance in all the spheres and activities of life. Furthermore, it is unique in that it is not named after any person, tribe, region or culture. Islam is named after a belief in one God, Allah, and submission to His will. In other words, Muslims put Allah's Will before their own.
Muslims use much of the same terminology that appears in the Bible: sin, salvation, heaven, hell, one God, law, and punishment. What is missing from their lexicon is the word "savior." The Muslim does not believe that he needs a savior because he believes he alone must atone for his sin by his works. Islam teaches that man is born sinless and, therefore, does not have a sin nature from which he needs to be saved. His sinlessness was corrupted by external influences and can, therefore, be 'cleaned up' by works and efforts that please Allah. The Qur'an tells the Muslim that his good deeds can cancel out his bad deeds (Sura 11:114), but no one knows how many good deeds are enough. Muslims believe they can ask Allah for forgiveness from sins, but Allah may or may not forgive them. There is, therefore (and this is the key), no assurance of salvation for Muslims.

Islam is almost similar to other religion like christianity and jewish as they were all from the same God BUT what define Islam is the way people practise it and how after 1434 years The Holy Quran remains as it was when it first revealed to Mohammed "peace be upon him" Muslims practis 5 prayers during the day, they fast for a month in every year, they practis "Haj" once in a year (Haj is going to Makkah and do some spiritual actions) not to mention that Muslims have guide to every little detail in their life that helps them to live peacefully next to each other and next to people from other regions/religions. Islam unite and gather people and order them to be peaceful and leave behind anything that can affect living together in harmony.
