The art of the religions of Islam and Christianity has been at the service of the religious beliefs and narrations of the books of the Holy Quran and the Bible, and the artists of the aforementioned religions have created works with religious themes according to the historical and social conditions. The enunciation of the birth of Jesus is also one of the common religious themes between Islam and Christianity, which has been considered by artists in different eras. Most of the pictures of the enunciation of the birth of Jesus were painted in Christian art for religious purposes. In fact, this was done in order to better understand the teachings of the Bible to the people. The present article examines the relationship between religion and art and intends to determine by comparative analysis and content study of the images of the miracle of the enunciation of the birth of Jesus in Islam and Christianity which visual narrative is more in line with the religion it has been depicted by? In which element or visual elements is the influence of religion reflected? And what are the visual differences and similarities in the images of the miracle of enunciation between the religions of Islam and Christianity? This research has been conducted by adopting descriptive, comparative, and analytical methods with the aim of examining the extent to which the images of the miraculous images of the enunciation of the birth of Jesus in the two religions are compared. Information and study samples of this research have been collected through library research and the internet. The findings of this study indicate that since there almost exists similar concepts and beliefs among the two religions of Islam and Christianity regarding the miracle of the enunciation of the birth of Jesus, Muslim painters are sometimes influenced by Christian artists in depicting some pictorial elements of this subject and sometimes, they remained faithful to the verses of the Qur'an and interpretive texts. Christian artists have also acted very closely to biblical interpretations in their representation of this religious theme, using symbols in this way.
