so ur of muslim faith? then riddle me this ... just out of curiosity. altho i am no expert on the muslim faith, i do take the initiation to learn & study the concepts of differnt faiths.
n the Qur'an. the book states that the muslim god is the god of abraham. but the god of abraham was yahweh. leading to the assumption that allah is yahweh.
yahweh is the god of hebrews, jews, & christians. it is well known that the jewish faith & the christian faith do not c eye to eye when it comes to the accepted role of christ (as well, the existence of jesus is ALSO acknowledged n the Qur'an).
setting aside the differences of opinion n relation to christ, the jewish faith & christians acknowledge the long lasting tie between our religions-yahwey. this acknowlegement has demanded the two faiths r inseperable. hence the constant support & ally the U.S. has w/isreal.
so my question is: if the muslim god is the god of abraham (yahweh)...the same god of jews & christians. and all 3 religions agree there is only one god.... then y do muslims go to great lengths to seperate their faith from the jews & christians? as tho their god is a different god... aka..allah.
He is the same God. He is the God who created heaven and earth. By the way, Allah simply just means God in Arabic. I, personally, don't know of anyone who goes to great lengths to prove anything about the religion. Are you speaking of the terrorists that you see? I'm simply asking because I'm sure you never see any other Muslim on tv being peaceful. Everyone that I know knows that we all share the same God. And, really, there are so many similarities between Christianity and Islam, but the main difference is that Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross and Muslim people do not. However, we do believe in Jesus. We believe that Jesus was a prophet.
