Is “Allah” (Muslim god) and the LORD Yahweh (Christian God) the same person?
“Allah” is worshiped at the Kaaba. The Muslims must visit the Kaaba at least once in a lifetime. The Muslims claim that the Kaaba was the first House of Worship, and that it was built or re-built by Abraham and Ishmael on God’s instructions.
Today Muslims practice all the pre-Islam pagan Arabs worship rituals. Muslims pray to the Moon-god “Allah” by praying toward Mecca several times a day. They make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the temple of the Moon-god, throwing stones, and kissing the black stone. Muslims kill an animal in sacrifice to the Moon-god. They fast following the sign of the crescent moon, etc.
The God of the Bible was first worshiped in Jerusalem in the temple built by King Solomon. The LORD God is no longer worshiped there or anywhere else (John 4.20-21 Bible verse). He is now worshiped in spirit and truth (John 4.28 Bible verse). The ancestral line of God’s people was through Isaac and not through Ishmael. God had a covenant with Abraham and his wife Sarah and not Abraham and his slave girl, Hagar. Abraham drove Ishmael from any inheritance in obedience to God’s instruction.
2) The Son of God
Muslims do not believe in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Muslims do not believe that they need to accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God to be saved.
In the Bible, Jesus Christ revealed himself as the son of God. He is the only way of salvation and the only way to the Heavenly Father.
The beliefs of Islam contrast the beliefs of Christianity. The differences:
|“Allah” does not have any son||God has a begotten son, Jesus Christ|
|No one shares Allah’s divinity||Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Father are one|
|“Allah” has given the Quran||God has given the Bible|
|Jesus Christ is just a prophet with no divinity||Jesus Christ is the son of God and has the fullness of the Godhead.|
|Jesus Christ was never crucified||Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross|
|Muhammed was the final revelation of “God”||Jesus Christ is the full revelation of God Himself.|
|Ishmael was a prophet||Ishmael has no inheritance in the covenant of promise and he was never a prophet.|
The Muslims’ “Allah” is NOT the LORD God of Christians. The Quran is the revelation of another god, the “Allah” of Muhammed.
Who is “Allah”?
“Allah” is the pre-Islamic name coming from the compound Arabic word Al-ilah (“Al” means “the” and “ilah” means “deity”). Al-ilah means the god. Al-ilah is the generic title for whatever god was considered the highest god. Before Islam, each Arabic tribe had its own god and deity. Different Arab tribes used “Allah” to refer to its personal high god. The moon god, Hubal, was the chief god that bore the title Allah. This “Allah” was the god of the local Quraysh tribe, Muhammed’s tribe. “Allah” was the title of the chief god among the 360 idols in the Kaaba in Mecca. Muhammed came and conquered all of them to abandon the other gods and worship only his Allah. He converted them from polytheism (worship of many gods) to monotheism (worship of one god).
The Muslim god, “Allah” is not the LORD God, “Yahweh, Heavenly Father”.
Allah means, “the true god”. This title was usurped by a fallen demon who desires to take the place of God and be known as God. I guess you know who this fallen angel is. Which fallen angel desires strongly to become God? Who will mimic and copy some Bible teachings but deny its fundamental truth? Who will command all to worship him by instilling fear in the hearts of men?
Islam is a horn on the false prophet beast in the book of Revelation. (To know more on the mark of the beast, freely download my book, “The Books of Daniel & Revelation Unveiled”. This false prophet beast serves the Leopard beast who serves the Dragon beast (Satan). The Dragon (Satan) is the god of Islam. The devil now bears the title “Allah”. The devil claimed this title because he demands to be worshiped as the one and only true god. Today, the one who bears this title is not the Hubal god, rather it is Satan. When men call on “Allah”, they are calling directly on Satan. Many people are calling on him. Many people are bowing their heads before him. Muslim means “one who submits to ‘Allah’”. One who calls himself a Muslim is one who is submitting directly to Satan (“Allah”).
Lucifer has declared himself god and decreed his own worship rites and beliefs. The Quran, its practices and beliefs are founded by the devil. He wants to be the only one to be worshiped. As a result, he exterminated through war all other religions and cults to establish his own deity. Islam is about conquering all people for “Allah”. Anyone who does not submit to Allah makes himself Allah’s enemy.
Islam comes second among the world religions. Islam is the most wild, ferocious, and brutal of all religions. Each time Muslims kill, they acclaim the deaths as a service to Satan (their “Allah”) by calling his name. As requested by Satan, Muslims pray five times daily and make animal sacrifices to him. They believe the Quran as the sacred word of “Allah”. Just as God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to establish a spiritual Heavenly kingdom, so too, Satan used Muhammed to establish his spiritual kingdom. We must not dwell in the dark but let God open our eyes to see the truth. Islam and Christianity have nothing in common. Islam is a satanic spiritual kingdom while the born-again Christians make up the kingdom of the God in Heaven and Earth.
Yahweh, the LORD and the heavenly Father is the true one true God, not “Allah” or any other deity.
Controversial Issues in the Quran
Jesus, the Messiah:
The Quran acknowledges Christ Jesus as the Messiah (Quran, 3:45-47), yet they do not believe in him for salvation. The Quran will acknowledge Jesus as a true Prophet, yet they reject his words. Jesus Christ called himself the son of God but they do not accept him. This is controversial. If Muslims believe that Jesus Christ is a true prophet, then they will believe in the words of the prophet. If they believe Jesus Christ as messiah, then they will believe in Him for salvation. Muslims claim that the Bible has been distorted over time. Manuscript and archaeological evidence proves that the New Testament is the first best preserved work of Antiquity, with over 25,000 manuscripts.
Islam, religion of “peace”:
Muslims claim that Islam is a religion of peace. At the same, there are records of many battles that were fought for the spread of Islam. The very first crusade (“holy war”) was led by Muhammed.
Muhammed commanded Jihad:
“So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah – never will He waste their deeds. He will guide them and amend their condition. And admit them to Paradise, which He has made known to them (Quran, Muhammad 47:4-7).
Muslims are encouraged to commit acts of heroism in combat. Those who kill and are killed in Jihad will be rewarded with paradise. This is the motivation of suicide bombers.
Unlike the Lord Jesus Christ who taught love, Muhammed taught violence. Unlike the Lord Jesus who perform many miracles to stir the faith of unbelievers, Muhammed used violence and force for the unbelievers to surrender.
Muslims do not have strong faith in their “Allah”. If they do, all of them will practice Jihad as “Allah’s” prophet Muhammed commanded. They love pleasure and the things of the world and will not stick out their necks for jihad.
Can a Christian accept Islam?
A Christian cannot accept Islam. It is the sin of idolatry, punishable by death.
“But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that person be condemned! What we have told you in the past I am now telling you again: If anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that person be condemned! (Galatians 1.8-9 Bible verse).
Who is the Antichrist?
It is he who does not accept the teaching of Jesus Christ. And he, who refuses the son, cannot have the father (2 John 1.7-10 Bible verse).
I personally think that the attempt to trace the roots of Islam to Abraham & Ishmael is just a means that the devil used to gain grounds in the field of God. Without this ground, Islam will lose its identity as “prophet” or “a religion from God”. If it links its roots to God, they will succeed in deceiving many.
What is the truth?
God’s covenant for a child of promise was with Abraham and his wife Sarah and not with Abraham and his slave girl, Hagar. The promise passed through Isaac and not Ishmael. The names of Abraham and Sarah were even changed to reflect the covenant.
Christ Jesus is the Son of God. On earth, he had the fullness of God. He was born of a virgin. He was the spotless Lamb of God. He died on the cross for the redemption of mankind, resurrected and is now seated at the right hand of God. Salvation comes only by faith in the Lord Jesus. This is the truth.
Anyone who does not remain in the teaching of Christ does not have God.
