Dear Muslim Friend

Don’t Muslims worship the same God as Christians?

Many Christians accept Muslims claim that we both worship the same God. They claim that they call him Allah, while we call him God. It is not unusual to hear Christian leaders make such statements. 

The problem with this is two-fold. First, history and archeology show clearly that Allah was worshipped as a pagan moon god long before Mohammed came on the scene. Robert Morey, author of “The Islamic Invasion,” explains:

“Islam’s origins have been traced back by scholars to the ancient fertility religion of the worship of the moon god which was always the dominant religion of Arabia. The moon god was worshipped by praying toward Mecca several times a day, making an annual pilgrimage to the Kabah which was a temple of the moon god, running around the Kabah seven times, caressing an idol of a black stone set in the wall of the Kabah, running between two hills, making animal sacrifices, gathering on Fridays for prayers, giving alms to the poor, etc. These were pagan rites practiced by the Arabs long before Muhammad was born.”

“What religion today practices the pagan rites of the moon god? Islam! This explains why the crescent moon is the symbol of Islam. It is placed on top of mosques and minarets and displayed on hats, flags, rugs, amulets and even jewelry. Every time you see the Muslim symbol of a crescent moon, you are seeing the ancient symbol of the moon god.”

1100 years before Christ, The Midianites were so cruel that the Israelites made hiding places for themselves in the mountains, caves.  Crescents made of gold were hanging on their camels. Read about Gideon's miracle victory in Judges chapter 8.

Second, if you read the Quran’s description of Allah, and read the Bible’s description of God, it becomes obvious you are reading about two different persons. Allah orders his followers to kill those who deny Islam, while God instructs us to LOVE our enemies. Allah had no son while God sent His Son to die for sinful men. Allah is “unknowable” while God seeks a personal relationship with His creation, man.  A personal Jesus, the Savior, is given to us.

Jesus said:  “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Dear Muslim Friend, the spirit behind Islam is an entirely different spirit… a spirit that denies the deity of Jesus. The Quran specifically denies the deity of Christ! All Christian witness ends right there.

Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah.  He is the Son of the living God, death could not hold him back from fulfilling His mission. He is risen from the dead. He is the ultimate teacher and savior.  There is salvation in no other name than Jesus Christ.

    Allah is not what muslims call god. It is the Arabic word for god; it means the exact same thing and refers to the exact same deity. Arab Christians call god allah as well.

    The god of the koran is no more different from the god of the new testament than the god of the new testament is from the god of the torah.

      “Arab Christians call god allah as well.” Ok, I may accept that for arabic speaking people.

      Sharia law and punishments are much worse than the law of the Torah. The Quran is full of hate against Jews and Christians.
      Cannot be the same God.

        Sharia is lifted almost directly from levitical law.
        Again: the differences from allah (as defined in the koran) and yahweh are no greater than the difference in character between yahweh and el.

        I agree that of the three the christian (protestant in particular) version is by far the most merciful and understanding.

        That does not change the fact that these characters were all plagiarized from the same source. The nature of the deity was matched to the nature of the society.

      The Islamic sharia laws of Iran lay down amputation as punishment for repeated thefts. Cases of amputation have been increasing due to a rise in robberies on the back of growing poverty in Iran.

      Exodus Chs. 21:37-22 deals with laws of thieves and their penalties. Generally, the thief must return the object he stole or pay for the theft as well as for the damage he caused. It says nothing about cutting off the hand of the thief.

    There is Only One True GOD. That is Yahweh, Jesus, The Almighty Living God.
