It is said so often that Muslims, Jews, and Christians all worship the same “God”.
A popular talk radio host pointed out during the past two Presidential elections the lies of certain political candidates saying that,
“When something that is a lie is repeated over and over and over, it’s not long before people begin believing that the lie is the truth.”
He is right!
There is absolutely NO denying that God of the Old Testament and God of the New Testament are absolutely the one and only and same God! How do we know this? Because all of the attributes, nature, and character of God INCLUDING His compassion, mercy, grace, and love, are consistent throughout the Scriptures. The God of the Hebrews and of the Christians repeated over and over and over and over AGAIN His response to the wicked deeds of men where repentance was met with mercy and grace, and sins of the repentant were paid for atoned by an innocent “victim” provided by God Himself.
No so, “Allah”!
Here are 10 reasons why Islam’s “Allah” cannot POSSIBLY be the same person as our Judeo-Christian God:
1.The Name of God
Muslims say they believe in the prophet Moses (Musa) yet they do not recognize or acknowledge the unique name that God gave to Moses.
When Moses encountered the burning bush at Mount Horeb, he was told that the name of God was YHWH forever. [Exodus 3:14-15] Jesus used the first person of YHWH when he said “I AM”. [John 8:58] The Quran makes no mention of the special name for God and uses Allah which means “the God”. There were 360 idols in the Kaaba during Mohammed’s time called Allah. Allah is just a generic name for “the God”.
The names for God can’t be reconciled. Allah is not God.
2. God’s Laws for mankind
Moses received the Ten Commandments on two stone tablets from God on the mountain top. These commandments are the basis for laws recognized by both Jew and Christian. In fact, Jesus stated that : “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law. I have come to fulfil, and until heaven and earth pass away, not one stroke of a letter will pass from the Law”. [Matthew 5:17-18] Sharia Law which is based on the Quran and Mohammed completely rejects the Ten Commandments and Mohammed broke most of the commandments on a regular basis.
If you follow Sharia law you will certainly break the Ten Commandments and this denies the teaching of Jesus. Jesus went further and said that whoever breaks the law and teaches others to do the same is considered “the least in Heaven”. [Matthew 5:19] That makes Mohammed the least in Heaven.
Allah’s laws are contradictory to God’s laws. Allah is not God.
3. God’s Plan for Mankind
God revealed his plan for mankind through his prophets, starting with Psalm 2 about 1,00 0BC where he revealed the begotten son, and in Psalm 22 he revealed details of the crucifixion that Jesus would endure and then in Isaiah 48 he revealed the Holy Trinity about 700 BC.
God announces a begotten Son; Allah denies a begotten Son
“You are my Son: today I have begotten you. I will make the nations your heritage and the ends of the earth your possession”. [Psalm 2:7-8]
But 1600 years later, the Quran denies what is written in the Psalms.
“He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have children when He has no wife? He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything”. [Sura 6.101]
So here Allah denies what God has stated.
God announces the Holy Trinity; Allah denies the Holy Trinity
God’s eternally begotten Son is part of the Trinity.
“From the time it came to be, I have been there, and now the Lord God has sent me and His Spirit”. [Isaiah 48:16] Here is God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit as spoken by the prophet Isaiah.
Yet from Sura 5:73, the Quran denounces the Trinity.
“They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah”.
God announces the crucifixion; Allah denies the crucifixion
The virgin birth [Isaiah 7:14] and birth in Bethlehem [Mica 5:2] foretold Jesus appearance. Details of the crucifixion were given in Psalm 22 and Isaiah 53, the betrayal for 30 pieces of silver in Zechariah 11 and that the sun would go down at noon was in Amos 8:9. However Allah denies all this in Sura 4:157.
“That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them”.
God announces the sonship and describes the crucifixion about 1000 BC and announces the Holy Trinity about 700 BC, but Allah denies each element of God’s plan. Allah is not God.
4. God demands separation of church and state
From Abraham to Moses to Jesus, there was a strict separation of church and state. Abraham was served with wine by High Priest Melchizedek. [Genesis 14] Moses was served by High Priest Aaron and Jesus acted as the High Priest and served his disciples with wine. [Matthew 26:26-29] There is a story in 1 Samuel 13 where king Saul performed priestly duties and God removed his kingship because of this. God demanded separation of church and state. Jesus also said to “give to Caesar what is Caesar’s” enforcing the separation of church and state. Islam demands totalitarianism and also has banned wine.
God demands separation of church and state while Allah demands totalitarianism. Allah is not God.
5. God’s Holy city is Jerusalem
Jerusalem is the Holy city of God and Jerusalem is mentioned in the Torah over 660 times and in the New Testament 154 times. The book of Revelation in chapter 21 states that a new Jerusalem will arrive indicating that Jerusalem is God’s Holy city forever. Mecca is not mentioned once by name in the Bible.
Mecca is the Holy city of Allah and Jerusalem is not mentioned once by name in the Quran. God and Allah claim two different Holy cities that can never be reconciled. Allah is not God.
6. The Dome of the Rock
In 637 AD when caliph Umar captured Jerusalem he told Bishop Sophronius that they would build a shrine to Allah’s prophet on the Holy mountain. Sophronius understood a prophecy of Daniel which called this an abomination that desolates. The prophecy starts in 583 BC, the 23rd year of Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, when the last group of 745 people were taken to Babylon, and so the regular burnt offerings ceased. [Jeremiah 52:30] Now the scope of this prophecy is 1290 years of 360 days or 1271 solar years. Coming forward from 583 BC by 1271 years we come to 688 AD. Caliph Abdul Malik built the Dome of the Rock between 685 and 691 AD, so 688 AD is the midpoint of the building program.
So the shrine to Allah’s prophet is called an Abomination that Desolates by God.
Mohammed is not mentioned even once in the Bible and Jesus said that only false prophets would come after him. That makes Mohammed a false prophet. Allah is not God.
7. The Fate of Mecca
Even though Mecca is not mentioned by name in the Bible, it is referred to in allegorical language as the harlot city and the LovePeddler of Babylon in Revelation 17 & 18. Babylon the mother of whores and abominations is drunk with the blood of the saints and the witnesses to Jesus [Revelation 17:5-6]. Mecca is the spiritual head of Islam and in her name millions of Jews and Christians have been slaughtered after cries of “Allahu Akbar”, and the slaughter continues today. Mecca and Medina (Yathrib) are the two most Holy sites in Islam, yet strangely in Islamic eschatology, both are destroyed. Consider now the two relevant prophecies.
“The final battle will be waged by faithful Muslims coming on the backs of horses, carrying black banners. They will stand on the east side of the Jordan river and will wage war that the Earth has never seen before. The true Messiah who is the Islamic Mahdi, will defeat Europe, will lead this army of Seljuks. He will preside over the world from Jerusalem because Mecca would have been destroyed.” [Yawm Al-Ghadab, Safar Alhwaly]
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib is in ruins, the ruined state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes, the outbreak of the great war will be at the conquest of Constantinople and the conquest of Constantinople when the Dajjal (Antichrist) comes forth. He (the Prophet) struck his thigh or his shoulder with his hand and said: This is as true as you are here or as you are sitting (meaning Mu’adh ibn Jabal)”. [Sunan of Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4281: Narrated Mu’adh ibn Jabal]
God hates Mecca and will destroy it. Allah can’t stop the destruction of his holy city. Allah is not God.
8. God’s enemies are Allah’s supporters
There are numerous places in the Bible where God names the nations who will fight against him and with the Antichrist. In the famous seventy weeks prophecy, it is the people of the Antichrist who destroy the temple in 70AD. The soldiers of the Roman legion X Fretensis under General Titus were from Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Arabia. These nations today whose people destroyed the second temple in 70AD are Islamic. In Psalm 83, Isaiah 13-24 and Ezekiel 28-32 and 38, the nations named as following the Antichrist are Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan and Libya.
The Bible is consistent in naming Islamic countries where people follow Allah as the followers of the Antichrist.
Allah is not God.
9. God created mankind as equals, Allah didn’t
The Bible states clearly that all equal in God’s eyes, but this is not true with Allah.
Allah describes a hierarchy for mankind.
Arab male Muslims are the best of people (and Arabic is the language in Heaven)
White male Muslims are next in importance
Black male Muslims are next
Women Muslims are the lowest order of the believers
Non Muslims or infidels are the vilest of creatures. [Sura 8:55]
God states all people are equal, Allah does not agree. Allah is not God.
10. God hates what Allah allows
The Bible states clearly in the book of Proverbs 6:17-19 the six things that God hates.
- Haughty eyes
- A lying tongue
- Hands that shed innocent blood
- A heart that devises wicked plans
- Feet that hurry to run to evil
- A lying witness who testifies falsely.
God hates haughty eyes but Allah gives Muslims haughty eyes by telling them they are the best of people and unbelievers are the vilest of people;
God hates a lying tongue, but Allah allows Muslims to lie in Sura 16.106;
God hates hands that shed innocent blood yet Allah demands the killing of unbelievers, apostates, homosexuals, and even Muslims who don’t follow the true faith;
God hates a heart that devises wicked plans yet Allah approves of Muslims who want to destroy Israel, blow up infrastructure and plan to undermine western democracies through lying and deceit;
God hates feet that hurry to run to evil [/b]but Allah approves of Muslims who murder poets and filmmakers and try to kill people who draw cartoons about Mohammed;
[b]God hates a lying witness yet Allah demands that a Muslim lies to protect or advance the cause of Islam.
From these six things that God hates, we see clearly that Allah is not God.
We have presented just ten reasons why Allah is not God. There are many more but these are sufficient to prove without a doubt that Allah is not God and Islam is based on a monumental lie.
