Allah is God in Arabic.

The Arabic Bible beginning with the Book of Genesis uses the word "Allah" to represent "The God" of Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael and Issac and Israel. Page one of Genesis has the word "Allah" 17 times.
---Sheila on 12/31/07


The word "Allah" is the perfect description of the "One God" of monotheism for Jews, Christians and Muslims!

Is "Allah" only for Islam and Muslims?
[No! It is for All Three Abrahamic Faiths.]

"Allah" is the same word used by Christian Arabs and Jewish Arabs in their Bible, centuries before Islam came.

On page one [1] of Genesis in the Old Testament, we find the word "Allah" seventeen [17] times.
---Sheila on 12/31/07


Allah is nothing. There is only one God and that is the God of Israel. He is also our God, the God and Father of Christians. There is only one way under heaven to be saved and that is through the Door of Jesus Christ, God's son.
---John on 10/8/07


Genesis 17:23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

Ishmael was made a Jew by Abraham and gets the same inheritance any Jew has. Abraham is his Father. Whether they be Jew or Arab there is no way to God except through the Son. No name whereby anyone can be saved but Jesus.
---Exzucuh on 3/13/07


KHADIJAH;Exodus:313-15 shows us that there is only one God.Gen;16 shows How Ishmael was born in verse15.Gen.17explains about the covenant between Him & The off spring Of Hagar The Egyptian Bonds woman to Sara.But In Verse21 he states I will make my Covenant with Issac.Did this cause the enmity ?But in the NT both Jews denied The afore mentioned Coming of the SaviourJesus Christ who was declared by God as HIS SON.
---Emcee on 3/13/07




Allah is arabic for 'The God' or 'The One God'. The term was used by Jewish speaking Christians and Jews before the Quran came, and is still used by arab (*and I think Swahili) speaking Christians. Despite some Christian claims pre-islam there was NEVER an idol created for him and Allah was known in Mecca as the God of Abraham&Ishmael. Mohammed rejected the idol worship, destroying the idols & calling the pagan Arabs (non-christians&non-jews)to worship Allah alone.
---Khadijah on 3/12/07


The Quran does NOT teach me to kill any one who is not muslim
He who has killed one innocent soul, it is as if he has killed all humanity.(Quran 5:32).
Does the bible tell you to kill me (considering some of you seem to think I worship a moon god)?
Deut 17:2-5, Deut 14:6-10, Levit 24:16
no you will tell me about the HISTORICAL context. Muslims see the text IN CONTEXT as much as you do with your bibles.
---Khadijah on 3/12/07


Allah is not God. Only the God of the Bible is the one true God revealed as three persons in the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. I find it very hard to believe that someone who converts to muslim was a christian --- many do call themselves "christian" but are not. Does your friend believe that Jesus died for her?
---Helen_5378 on 6/9/06


Does not Islam claim that Allah was the God of Abraham, who was the common ancestor of Jews and Arabs?
If so, it means that Muslims think they have the same God as Jews and Christians. But of course, we say it is not the case. Certainly Islam has distorted the True Loving God into a Hating god.
---alan8869_of_UK on 6/9/06


allah is the moon god ali lai or something like that just like baal worship(sun god)
---r.w. on 6/8/06




"Allah" is the arabic word for "God". Arab Christians, Jews and Muslims worship God, but in arabic they worship Allah because they speek arabic. There no such a thing as a Muslim God. There are definitely differences between the Christian, Jewish and Muslim conceptions of God, as there are also differences within the christian conceptions of God, unless we excomunicate all those who differ with ours.
---M._E._Azzam on 2/17/06


Well you know Jesus was persecuted, and God's name is often used in vain. They are alive. Have you ever heard someone say "Allah-damn"?
---Weasel on 1/13/06


Alan::Jesus was born into a Jewish Family & hence by nationality he was Jewish,but he was rejected by his people ;The jews are still waiting for the Messiah & do not accept Jesus as God.But we do Jesus is god.The muslims have mohammed as a prophet & call him Allah I believe-again not the same god- & certainly not the same ideology, or traditions & the same following.
---Emcee on 11/19/05


2. By making a careful study to their faith you will be able to see the differences between their god and Almighty God of Scripture. Their natures are different and also their attributes. It is no difference then the god that other religions teach. Even within Christianity we see many teachers teaching a different God of Scripture and people excepting it as if it was not important because God is love and we should love one another. As followers of Christ we should protect and defend the Christain faith.
---Lupe2618 on 11/19/05


Alan, the god of Islam is not the God of Scripture. He was a pagan god. Allah was a pagan god before Muhammand. Allah was only one of the pagan deities of the pre-Islamic Arabic pantheon (collection of gods) and not even the central deity. It was thus Muhammad who transformed and elevated this pagan deity into the surpreme god of Islam. The Biblical God that we know is not the same and never will be the same.
---Lupe2618 on 11/19/05


Moderator ... you seem to suggest that Muslims' god cannot be the same as the Christians God, because they do not believe that Jesus is God. Neither do the Jews think Jesus is God, but we do accept that our God is the same as the Jews' God ... only much much bigger.

Linda: It's a very sad fact that in many places in the world just saying you're a Christian can mean MANY different things! In Lebanon, 'Christian' is often a POLITICAL term rather than a comment about one's beliefs! In USA and of course in many RCC countries, it may only mean your family observes certain practices, but doesn't necessarily mean you're commited to living for Christ! Thus some add descriptions stating they ARE true Believers! Hope that helps.

Linda ... #2 I remeber asking a man once if he was a Christian and he replied "Yes of course I am ... I am English" !!!

Linda ... I think "born-again" as an adjective is relatively recent.
I was "converted" as we used to say before the adjective was used in the UK, and so I call myself a Christian. Others think that you have to call yourself "born-again" and that "Christian" means just nominal.
---alan8869_of_UK on 11/14/05


M.A.: Must I conclude that "Born-Again Christians" and "Christians" are two different kinds of people? What is the origin of the "Born-Again Christians" if they are different from the "Christians"? Must I separate their origin from the Christians that can be traced back to the Christian Crusaders?

[Pt*6] Clarification for Moderator (maybe others): I would never call my relationship with God a 'religion,' that connotes man-made ideas/beliefs instead of truth revealed by God! I know MOD.s don't have much time, but when using phrases like, "different god" or "their god" we _should_ point out we really don't believe such beings exist, it's only "what they believe God to be," not reality!

Pat, you said "Muslims are Anti Christ, That is why they kill Christians,they are totally against Jesus. Our God would not allow His people to do that! They serve Lucifer"

[Pt*5]you compare all it means to YHVH (for most people anyway!). If I had to distribute a translation of the Bible using "Allah," I'd make sure it included a list of all that was true of Him, his other names and attributes, in the front and back covers and elsewhere! HOPEFULLY my comments will help to alleviate some misunderstandings here at ChristiaNet.

Moderator - Both religions believe in monotheism (one god) and that is where the comparisons ends. These are two different religions with a different god.
---Daniel on 11/13/05


[Pt*4]...simply asking "Are Allah and God the same?" isn't good enough without a great deal of DEFINITION! Could the two 'words' be used of the one true God? Perhaps; Bruce spent much time dealing with that. But I see the person's real question as: "Does Islam really teach the whole truth about the one true God?" and to that I must say 'No!' Muhammed was NOT a true prophet of God, and whatever he taught that doesn't agree with Scripture fills the word 'Allah' with error when... [CONT.]

[Pt*3]"YHVH," but perhaps some Arabic Bible translators do use "Allah" instead. The problem is this: Will readers finish the whole book to learn who "Allah" really is, or still retain an underlying Muslim perspective (which may be full of what many posters here consider "negative connotations") about the true God? Either way, we here need to be very careful when discussing such "highly loaded" names and terms! For a forum based in English,... [CONT.]

I don't believe the atrocities in Ireland were committed by Christians at all. I believe they were committed by 2 different lots of religious people who 'think' that they are Christians. Quite possibly the atrocities of the crusades were also committed by religious people rather than by born-again Christians.

Muslims are not the only ones that have committed atrocities in the name of "god". Consider the "Christian" crusades of the middle ages and in modern times, the years of strife in Ireland.

There is only one GOD that holds the absolute power which overlooks the build and unbuild universe. The powers of GOD are absolute and unimaginable. GOD is not a messenger. Bible means message from GOD delivered by Jesus. Even the message is sent through others who work for the GOD before reaching JESUS. Clearly, ALLAH has not been on Earth to sent any message through any books of revelation ie Bible or Quran. Everthing belongs to GOD. Ask ur selfs who owns u? A messenger or GOD himself?

---Nellah on 11/10/05


Moderator, I never said they "serve" God. Only that the core belief is in the one, eternal creator. You could make a case that their "god" ("g")is their idology. But the God("G")they pay lipservice to is the God of Abraham, and of Christians today. They do not "serve" him for theirs is a false religion. So, do you feel the same way about Catholics? They do not serve God they serve religion. Is the God of their religion the same God we serve?

Moderator - Muslims are a different religion. Do Hindus and Buddhists serve the same multi gods? No, because they are different religions.
---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


Moderator ... why does Islam reagrd Jesus as a great prophet if they do not beleive he was a prophet of their god? The facts rather than hearsy appear to suggest that both Jews & Christians on the one side, and Muslims on the other, all regard their god as the god of Abraham. The fact that we have different perceptions as to how that Gods behave and wants us to behave is a slightly separate issue.

PART ONE:
"It wasn't until the Ottoman Empire that the crescent moon and star became affiliated with the Muslim world. When the Turks conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) in 1453, they adopted the city's existing flag and symbol. Legend holds that the founder of the Ottoman Empire, Osman, had a dream in which the crescent moon stretched from one end of the earth to the other. Taking this as a good omen, he chose to keep the crescent and make it the symbol of his dynasty."

Moderator - Using the information quoted, it stated some Muslims don't like the Crescent Moon. Some Christians don't like the Cross. Regardless, those are our respective symbols. Also as stated, their symbol is pagan which is correct. Surely one can easily see we don't serve the same God.
---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


PART TWO:
"For hundreds of years, the Ottoman Empire ruled over the Muslim world. After centuries of battle with Christian Europe, it is understandable how the symbols of this empire became linked in people's minds with the faith of Islam as a whole.
---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


PART THREE:
Based on this history, many Muslims reject using the crescent moon as a symbol of Islam. The faith of Islam has historically had no symbol, and many refuse to accept what is essentially an ancient pagan icon. It is certainly not in uniform use among Muslims."

Sorry, but that dosen't cut it. It may be true, but it seems to me that such statements should be eaisly backed up with reference sources. Other wise it is just hearsay or personal opinion. I have cited Islamic sources that indicate that what you are saying is not true.

It is not fair to anyone to put propegate false "truths" about anyone's religion. It is the same in the Christian vs Catholic discussions. You will note that I always cite Catholic sources to refute their error. The antidote for error is TRUTH.
---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


Moderator,
I have listed sources and quotes to support my view. What sources are you using to make the statement that they worship the "moon god"?

Moderator - Ask any Muslim. They picked among many gods and choose the greatest god and serve him as The god. They only serve one god, but Christians serve The God.
---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


PART ONE:

This is NOT a defense of Islam.

In Romeo and Juliet, there is a line that says A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. In other words, a thing is what it is no matter what it is called.

God is who He is no matter what He is called. He is I am. He is the one and only, He is the eternal, all powerful, all knowing, everywhere present creator and sustainer of the universe.

---Bruce5656 on 11/10/05


PART TWO:
In other words, call Him anything you want, that does not change who He is.

From my research, it seems apparent that Muslims look to Abraham as the originator of their faith and they embrace HIS God who they call Allah.

People are confusing what they believe about God with who they believe God is.
The question is not do the muslim and Christian believe the same way about God or about salvation. Rather, do the terms Allah (armaic) and God (english) mean the same being.

Bruce, where in the Bible does it say God's name is allah, or that we can call God that? Muslims mean a very different God than Christians do.

The Aramaic word for God is "Allaha". I believe the difference is that Christians believe Issac was the son of promise, and Islam and Muslim believe Ishmael, the son of the bond woman, was the son of promise. His name is not 'GOD', that's his title or "what" he is ... His name is Jehovah.

PART ONE:
I think that it is too simplistic to dismiss this question with a "no" answer. If you go back to the God of Abraham Issac and Jacob (and Ishmael) then Allah as the descendents of Ishmeal call Him would be the same God. However, that means nothing.
