in response to reader comment: Same God?

If Muslims say we worship the same God with the Christians, we don't mean the gods of the different types of the Christendom. We mean the God of Jesus, Moses, Abraham,etc, but not the god formed after 300yrs of Jesus mission at the Council of Necaer.

A Beduin non Muslim Arab greeted & passed by the Prophet Muhammad, then Muhammad called him & asked him a very wise question as; 'How many gods do you worship'? he answered SEVEN. Six are with me & the ONE is in the Heaven. Muhammad asked again Who among them created you & sustains your life? He (beduin) answered 'is the ONE in the heaven. Then Prophet Muhammad said discard all the gods you have & rely on to the ONE that sustains your life.

Today, if a Christian says he follows Jesus in worshiping the God of Jesus, ask him 'how is he'. If he said he is one but appeared in Trinity (God the father, god the son & god the holy spirit). Then ask him who among them created him, sustains lives, everlasting (not dieing for 3 days). If he is a seeker of the truth he will definately answer as the 'Father'. Then tell him to discard the rest & worship the Father (Almighty Allah). The God worshipped by the Muslim is a just God (that does not kill someone for the sins of the others), has no begining ( as against John 1:1), & the only saviour. He is the God preached by the earlier Prophets such as Isiah 43:10-11, which was later preached by Jesus in Mark 12:29, & finally preached by Muhammad in the Qur'an 112:1-4. May the peace & blessing of Allah be upon all of them!
