In the context of language, Rūh al-Qudus or Holy Spirit carries the same meaning. This concept exists in Islam and Christianity as the religions that have a distinct relationship from the context of history and belief. But there is a big difference between the concepts that brought up confusion and misunderstanding. It also has a direct impact in interfaith life. This article aims on explaining the differences using comparative qualitative methods.
