From 600 B.C.E until 1500 C.E., the require for trade increased and became a part of Christians and Muslims daily life. In the beginning of time, Christians saw it as a negative thing, while the Muslims saw as a positive thing, they believed that there were honest merchants. Over time, Muslims started to have negative view while Christians had a positive view. Christians were against trade because it causes them to desire material gain. However, Muslims allow trade. In the Bible, Matthew states Jesus’ teachings about merchants, saying that “… then for a rich men to enter into kingdom of god” (Doc. 1). This shows that Christians found merchants and trade shameful, which was probably because it makes a great connection to earthly possessions. This document was written by one of the founders of Christianity, which makes it more trustworthy. The Qur’an shows the rules of governing trade, stating that just transactions will allow a merchant into heaven (Doc. 2). It shows that Muslims see trade as an acceptable practice. The source was written by the founder of Islam. Reginald, colleague of St. Godric states that Gordic disliked having profits of his trade, ever since he followed Christianity, until one day he stopped and gave the profits to the poor (Doc 3). In Christianity, it seems that people think a little bit about wealth, while requirement of trade means alot one’s worth. The document was written before Godric’s death, which means this document is that trustworthy. Reginald could have changed the document to make St. Godric stand out to the people. Document 6 constants letters regarding trade. Two from churches trying to order religious paintings and wool, and one from a mother telling her son to stop trading in hopes of more riches (Doc. 6). The letter from mother to son shows how trade was unfavorable to Christianity and undermined it more than anything. All of these documents show that Christians disagree about trade, unlike Muslims who brought trade part of their lives and religion. Christianity and Islam also had the same values of fair trade, dishonest trade was awful to both religions. Document 2 states Muslims only support equal trade, unfair trade will not approved by the Quran. Thomas Aquinas quotes Matthew in the Bible and Cicero the Roman writer in his theology disapproval fraud (Doc 4). The Christians do not like the practice of double dealing. Ibn Khaldun states that trade is a cunning practice, at the same time, it’s a natural way of life that still requires Muslims to the exchange of goods (Doc 5). This shows that Muslims also knew the nature of the job they approved, and warned against becoming a shameless trader. They found it unfair for one person to control on an industry and leave every other merchan with nothing. This states how importance its for. All of these documents show that both Christianity and Islam are shown to oppose trading practices. Christian and Muslim attitudes changed over the years, switching the opinions. Document 4 shows that Christians were to accept trade as a common, occupation. Document 5 shows how Muslim academic view trade as changing into a dishonored occupation. Document 6 shows that Christians are used to the trade world, and were using tactics like waiting for a sale for lower prices. Document 7 shows that Muslims have come very difficult to keep them from cheating each other, and now are calling for fairer trade. All of these documents show that opinions and trade between Christians and Muslims had all but switched places by the fifteenth century. Christians and Muslim saw that trading was an sinful and some tradings were dishonest. Over time, Christians say it was saw trading as a job or a job for the wealthy. Christianity and Islam were two controlling and fast growing religions from the 1st and 7th century. Trade in the two religions differed greatly at first.
