This assumption is incorrect since Christianity predates Islam. Mohammed was born in the seventh century so during the time of Christ Islam didn't exist.

In pre-Islamic Arabia amongst pagan Arabs, Allah was not considered the sole divinity, having associates and companions, sons and daughters.

So before Mohammed Allah was a Pagan deity associated with moon worship.

If you will do the research on the two you will see that there are few similarities between the two.
