Hi Tink,

Just wondering: Is the God of Muslims a different God than those of the Christians or Jews? I always thought that the basic principle was the same, just that the details were different.

Generally, it is thought that yes it is the same God, in that Mohammed based Islam on Christianity and Judaism and then added his own teachings ("delivered" by Gabriel, who, as you may know makes several appearances in the Gospels of the New Testament).

However, a longer answer seems to change this. The name Allah was originally the name of the pre-Islamic Arabian moon god (equivalent of the Babylonian "Bel"). This explains the symbol of Islam - a crescent moon. On the other hand the Judeo-Christian God, known as YWHW (often spelled Jehovah or Yehweh) or I Am that I Am, does not originate from a moon god. So, at least from origins, it would appear that Allah is not in fact the God of Christianity and Judaism, but a combination of gods combined.

For more information, you might find www.answering-islam.org a very interesting site.

Best, Tim
