I think Islam sprung more from Judaism than Christianity. There are similarities in that they are both Abrahamic. But Islam does not recognize that Jesus was the son of God, was crucified, or that Jesus' death absolves man of sin, so they don't really have much to do with Christianity. Of course, without the Christian Crusades, I would agree that modern day Islam would probably be much different than it is.
