Is Allah the God of Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, and Muhammad? Why of course he is. How do we know? Well....let's see. God or Allah is the same when he came to Moses in the cave through fire, the same when he revelead to Abraham his message, the same when he sent Gabriel to Mary with a message from him that she would bear a child (Jesus) without a male partner, and finally, the same Allah aka God came to Muhammad in cave with a revelation thru Gabriel stating that he would be the next and final messenger.

Ok, well, if thats not enough similarities, we can say that truly, all the 3 major religions believe that Allah or God, created the earth in 6 days...then if three major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam claim this, then how could (Allah forbid) that two or three gods create the earth in 6 days? it is not possible. than we would have 3 earths....and astronomically, there is no other planet like earth. therefore, science proves that there could not have been 2 or 3 diff. "Gods".

Finally, why in the Qur'an then would Allah reveal that He Almighty sent these messengers? Why if Allah was not God, care about anything as to state the name of Jesus 25 times in the Holy Quran (more than any other prophet) in ways which state that he was indeed his messenger? like all others stated in the Quran such as Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Adam, and Muhammad? It is nearly coincidental than isnt it? that if God is not Allah that he would care so much as to repeat in the old testament, Bible, and Qur'an the same things over again?

Would not the message and people and events in those books change? But they didnt. and we must overlook our hatred in order to understand such phenomenons. Allah is the same God from the beginning of time to the end. Allah is God.
