Allah is the God of the Bible but not Christianity

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Allah is not the God of the Bible

Submitted by John (United States), Apr 4, 2017 at 10:18

Allah is the God of the Bible but not Christianity. The original Bible (not the current revised and altered version) and Christianity are different matters.
Allah is not a moon god. The Quran clearly emphasises that the moon is a sign of God (a sign like the sun, stars, etc), not itself a god. 37th verse of the Sura Fussilat states:
"And of His signs are the night and day and the sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostrate to Allah, who created them, if it should be Him that you worship".
