Is Allah of the Muslims the God of Christians?

Q2. Dr. Labib, is Allah of the Muslims the God of Christians?

Answer

I would say that it can't be that way. There is only one true God, who revealed Himself in the Bible, through His prophets. And if we compare between the God of the Christians, and Allah of the Muslims and of the Quran, we will see a lot of differences. There is a difference in the attributes of Allah, and the Attributes of God of the Christians. There is a difference in the commandment of Allah of the Muslims and the commandments of the God of the Christians. There is a difference in the plan of salvation prepared by the God of the Christians, and the plan of salvation in Islam. And I might say here that the word 'salvation' was never ever mentioned in the whole Quran. Then lastly I would say that the god head in Islam is different than the god head in Christianity.

Well reasoned-Islam & especially Muhammad have been poor at showing us their god is our God. The claims that our God did do & behave as allah before Muhammad came has no evidence to support it, except what is in the Muslims imagination. Our God inspired the bible & Islam's god didn't. Our's sent his Son, whilst their's didn't. Yet Muhammad has sought to align himself with our God- but shows no real insight to him- which is unthinkable if he were truly associated with our God.

Great point I did not take notice to prior to you mentioning it. I was accepting the claims of the Qu'ran due to the fact that they recognize Jesus as one of Gods sent messengers.

every one that can think knows that god do not have any son or daughter and when a god have any son or daughter or partner then he is not god. god can have massengers not son or daughter or partner , just one time recite the QURAN with meaning then u will realize the reality of ISLAM.

There is a difference in the commandment of Allah of the Muslims and the commandments of the God of the Christians is now apparent.The difference is made apparent by what's been done and that which is being done in the name of Holiness.

Nabil, I think you have been mislead. I am a Christian. We do NOT believe that God married a woman and birthed a son. This is blasphemy!! There is ONE God and He is perfectly holy, righteous, and good. Jesus is called the "son" similarly to the way in which Arabs are called "sons of the desert." The desert did not marry a woman and birth a race of people. So it is with Jesus. Jesus so perfectly represents and displays the attributes of God, indeed reveals God Himself, that he is called the "son of God."
If you believe in Jesus as a prophet, Nabil, I encourage you to examine His words. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." He is saying He is the only way to know God! Jesus also says, "I and my father are one." He says that there is no difference between Him and God - He is saying that He IS God! Read His words in the Injil, Nabil. You might be surprise by what you find!

Peter,
A Christian is anyone who believes that Jesus Christ, God Himself, died to take the punishment for sin we deserve and rose again from the dead. Through belief in what Jesus has done for us any person can have a relationship with God. There are certainly Christians in the nation of Israel, just as there are Christians in the Arab world, the Orient, and the Americas. Not all Israelites are Christians just as all Americans or Arabs are not Christians. Anyone who desires to have a relationship with God can become a Christian. Christian simply means someone who worships and believes in Jesus Christ.

Hate to burst everyone's buble, but Allah in Islam is the same God in Christianity! Islam is the last chapter of Allah's or God's revelations to mankind. It is sad to see Christians portraying Islam and its followers as non-believers! Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, was the last and final messenger of God. Jesus was a Muslim!

Sorry to burst your bubbles.
Islam is evil cult of Muhammed only.
Muslims are followers of allah.
allah was muhammed's alter-ego.
Jesus and God of Abraham-Isaac-J acob is the same. He was at the beginning of world creation already.

Ray, my friend, you are mistaken. The word 'Allah' may translate to 'God' but Allah of the Qur'an is not the same as the God of the Bible. First of all, the God of the Bible is love. Allah of the Qur'an is just and merciful but he is also the deceiver. The God of the Bible never deceives but rather makes straight our paths. The God of the Bible promised a way to take our sin from us and did that by coming to this earth, living as a human, dieing to take the punishment we deserve, and rising from the dead three days later proving that he is God. Allah, on the other hand, demands constant works which are impossible to do perfectly (have you prayed 5 times a day EVERY day of your life??). Allah of the Qur'an does not promise salvation, but the God of the Bible does. He that believes in God's work through Jesus "is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God" John 3:18.

Excuse me? I find it funny how do you actually finding differences between God and Allah. "Allah" is the Arabic name for God. Christians on Middle East are saying "Allah" to describe their God aswell.
The main dogma of Islam consists in recognising a single God. And there are no exceptions. The funny thing is that Jesus (Peace be upon Him, we respect him too, just like Prophet Muhammad) actually told people to NOT consider him God. So why was he considered God if he didn't consider him a God himself? It was the fault of Paul the Apostle. Enemy of Christianity, and a Hebrew.
Which claimed to have seen Jesus in the Sky after his Ascension.
He has got his assertion from various Pagan beliefs, followers of which divinifised some people and declared them "Sons of God". So there.

Ernest, this is simply not true. If you believe in Jesus as a prophet, then listen to these words of Jesus. ""I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." You can find that in the Injil under John 14:6. Jesus says here that He is the only way to God! Earlier, in John 10:30, Jesus says, "I and my Father are one." JESUS is saying that He and God are one and the same! These are not the words of Paul, my friend, these are the words of the prophet Jesus! I encourage you to read the Injil and see what else Jesus says about Himself!

Why does the Bible warn about impersonations of Christ but not of God? Why does it say that erroneous descriptions do not change actual identity? (Mt.16:13-14; 25:24. What basis is there for saying Allah is not God than some erroneous descriptions? If description is the only basis for saying Allah is not God, why do 98 of the 99 beautiful names of Allah agree with the Bible. How can you say Muslims are not referring to the God of the Bible when they say they are?

Allah is simply the name of the Creator in Arabic. Muhammad spoke Arabic, so God revealed the Qur'an in Arabic. God makes things very easy for the one who really wants to know about God. When Muhammad lived, Jesus was not on earth teaching. Muhammad lived in a city that was filled with idol worshippers. Muhammad did not worship the idols and really wanted to know the truth about God and what the good and bad deeds are to God. Muhammad kept asking God to help him and God answered him, as God promised. Ask God and you will receive. God did reveal to Muhammad that Jesus is correct in what he said and pure. However Jesus was not with the people that were with Muhammad. Muhammad accepted to receive messages from God and tell the people around him, although he was humiliated and threatened with death. Muhammad told the messages from God (parts of the Qur'an) for about 13 years before any battles happened.

Jocelyn, you're right - Jesus is correct in what He said! But do you know what Jesus said? The words of Jesus are very different from the words of Muhammad. I would encourage you to read the Injeel and ask God to help you understand the words of Jesus. Do you have an Injeel to read?

Adil, Something to think about. Jesus said He was the only way to God - the ONLY way. Salvation is only through Jesus and none other. In the Injil, Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him." (John 14:6-7) Jesus says that He is the only way to God because he IS God. If you believe Jesus is a prophet and prophets cannot be incorrect, then consider His words!
The Bible, my friend, is written in many languages because the love and hope which God gives is for all people. Do you have a Bible? I would encourage you to read it!

Installing Jesus as god is not the teaching of Jesus. When and who installed Jesus as God and why? Is it true Constantine and the bishops made Jesus God for political reasons and power when at that particular time Constantine was so weak? Rgds

Zaini, no human "installed" Jesus as God. Jesus himself said he was God! God is often referred to as the "Father" and in John 10:30 Jesus says, "I and my Father are one." Those who heard Jesus wanted to kill him! Why? They told Jesus, "thou, being a man, makest thyself God" John 10:33. Jesus clearly declared that He was God and everyone listening to him understood it. Though many did not believe, we read a few verses later in John 10:42 that, "many believed on him there." I pray you may come to believe in Him, too, Zaini, because, "...as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" John 1:12 and "whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" John 3:16 Blessings, Zaini.

God in Islam is the same God in Christianity & Judaism. The name Allah is the Arabic name for God because our Holy Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)w as an Arab hence he was revealed the message in his native tongue of Arabic.Just as Moses was revealed his message in Hebrew so he called God Yahweh and Jesus who spoke Aramaic called God Elah.If the prophet was Spanish he would call God Dios.So even though different languages have different names they all refer to the same God. If you said"God" to a person who doesn't speak English they wouldn't know what you were referring to.Whats even more interesting and proves that Allah is the same God worshipped in the 3 Abrahamic faiths:ask a Christian Arab who is their Lord.They will say Allah because they speak Arabic.Since Muhammad(pbuh) was sent as our prophet and for the rest of mankind we call God,just as he did, Allah,and Allah is the only one whom we worship as God in Islam.

Rasheed,

Yes in Arabic the word God is Allah and we are proud of using that term in our Christian prayers and in our Arabic Bible (the Holy word of God), but the different between the God of the Bible and the God of Islam is vast! Only one of them can be true. The test: which God loves you no matter what? and Which God tricks you and treat as a slave? May I remind you my friend that one of the attributes of Allah in Islam is "Makir" Deceiver! The attribute of God in the Bible is Love. Allhu Mahabat God is LOVE! you judge

I was an EX Muslim, and will firmly say there is a huge difference between Allah of Islam and our Lord Jesus. How come we compare the Lord of darkness with the Lord of light. and for those who are still in illusion and think Quran is from God i advise them to watch the : "the Daring questions" episodes for brother Rachid on youtube and will pray may God Reveal himself to them to see the real truth

It is sad to read comments about God,Allah, to discuss who is right or wrong' which religion is right or wrong, why should we not stop those unhealthy duscussions?Why don't we keep our faith in one God, whatever language we use, let us spread peace and goodness but not to judge who is right or wrong. Only one God we have in this life and we are just visitors here on earth...

Gamze, what if one religion says it's okay to kill people and another says it is not. These obviously cannot both be correct, nor should both be followed. There is Truth and that Truth must be discussed. Faith in God has nothing to do with the language you speak, but rather the God you are worshipping. Keep faith in one God - that is fine - but please, seek to understand which God is truly the Lord and King and Creator of the universe. Seek to understand who it is that you should be worshipping.

Haruna, Dr. Labib is not debating whether the literal word is the same but whether the one worshipped is the same. If you examine the differences between the god of Islam and the God of the Bible, I believe you will see quite a big difference.

I believe both Christians and Muslims accepts that Moses or Musa was a prophet of GOD. If this is the case should believers also adhere to GOD's 10 commandments given to Moses. In the Bible in Exodus 20:1-17
