Is God and Allah the Same?

Glory be to God and welcome to Salt and Light Commission!


Allah…God. Allah of the Quran and God of the Bible, are they the same or are they completely different? That’s the question we will be answering today. Join me as we dig into this topic.

Disclaimer: Under no stretch of the imagination is Salt and Light Commission out to shame or to belittle the people of the Muslim faith. However, the mission of Salt and Light Commission is to win souls for Jesus Christ. We will present the facts and if those facts are sufficient enough for you then we urge you to contact salt and light or any Christian you may know and learn more about  Jesus…the God of the Bible.

Allah is Arabic for God. No one is denying that. Like Jesus is Yeshua in Hebrew. More ancient translations of Allah, is moon god…that’s a topic for another post. Right now we will be listing the characteristics of God and Allah.

I have meet many Muslims and a few have tried to convince me that we (Christians) and Muslims worship the same God.  Rather than take that at face value let’s example the evidence. To find God’s character we must go to the Bible and likewise to find Allah’s character we must consult the Quran. If the two are indeed the same being, we will see similarities and no differences, for God is constant and never changing.

Upon my research I have found more things different between the two than are similar.  Let’s take a look:

Swearing or making an oath:

God of the Bible is constantly making promises or covenants or oaths or reaffirming covenants. And the thing you hear God say the most to solidify the promise, is that He swears it by Himself.
It’s common practice that if you are going to make an oath you swear by a greater person or being than yourself. Even kids understand this concept. We (even though we know better now…or should) swear to God when trying to gain credibility to our story.

In Hebrews 6:13,14 it says: When God made His promise to Abraham, since He had no one greater to swear by, He swore by Himself, saying, “I will surely bless you and multiply your descendants.”

In Genesis 22:16,17 it says: And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Isaiah 45:23 say, I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

Here we can see that God is saying that He is great and there is nothing greater than He so he must only swear by Himself. Now let’s take a look at how Allah swears. If they are the same being, they should swear the same way.

[Allah speaking], “By the sun and its brightness. By the moon when it follows it. By the day when it displays it. And By the night when it covers it.” —Surah Shams, Verse 1–4.

Quran, Chapter 86, Verses 1-4:
I swear by the heaven and the comer by night, and what will make you know what the comer by night is? the star of piercing brightness; there is not a soul but over it is a keeper.

Quran, Chapter 51, Verse 1:
I swear by the wind that scatters far and wide,

Here we can see that Allah swears a different way for the God of the Bible. Allah swears by created things. Giving the impression that the created things are greater than he. God of the Bible however, does not swear to created things, He puts Himself above those things. So if they are the same how can an unchanging God, one minute put Himself above all creation and then the next decide to put Himself lower than creation to swear by it. This is a big difference.

Now, Let me just say that there are similarities to God and Allah, but those are irrelevant in proving if they are the same or not. If we are talking about a being that is above everything and so powerful that He never ever changes, He’s a constant God. Then even the slightest difference in his character, even if just one thing is different in these comparisons, then that would render this topic closed. God and Allah are not the same.

I have listed one big reason why Allah and God of the Bible are not the same. So logically the case is closed. But just for a bonus point, let’s look at the Trinity:

God the Holy Trinity:

God is a Trinity, but one being. The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. God calls Jesus His son. Jesus is the savior of the world. Accepting His sacrifice and Grace gets you into heaven.
Allah is not a Trinity. He doesn’t have a son. Allah calls Jesus a messenger, not the savior. Believing in Jesus as the Messiah will not get you to heaven. If your good deeds outweigh the bad, then you may possibly (not guaranteed)  get into heaven.

That’s another big difference.  Either you have a son or not. Both can’t be true.
Either you are a Trinity or you’re not.
Either you have one plan to save sinners by grace or by works. Which is it?

The more you try to fit Allah in the same category with God, the more contradictions you get.

You can even use human beings design as proof that Allah and God are not the same. Let me explain. The Bible says God created us in His image…a triune being. Like God is; God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost…Man is; Man the Body, Man the Soul, Man the Spirit. The Quran believes this to be true in the Bible, that God created man in his image.  But if that is true than Allah didn’t create us in his image, because we are a trinity and Allah is not.

I could go on, but there really isn’t a need to. I have displayed enough evidence to prove that Allah and God or not the same being. Like I mentioned before, if even one thing contradicted a characteristic of the other the argument is void.

In conclusion, Allah and God are not the same. And if you are Muslim and you are reading this and you want to know a better way to get to heaven, come to know Jesus Christ as the Savior. With Him you don’t have to count your sins and hope that the good you have done outweighs the sin before you die. With Jesus the scales are broken! His grace and mercy is what saves. Trust that He is the Son of God, that He died for your sins, and rose again from the dead with all power…live for Him and you get to go to heaven. You have not stumbled on this post by accident. God has navigated you to this page on purpose to bring you to the truth. What truth? Jesus is Truth. If you want more information about Jesus comment, email me, and I’ll share with you the good news of Jesus.

That’s it for this post. Be blessed and remember you are the salt and light of the world!
