Once again the conclusion is simply that Muslims do not have the same God as Jews and Christians. For one thing the Muslim God is viewed as being to long distant and not really close to the believers in Islam. The relationship is more like a master and slave type of relationship in the spiritual sense. In the Christian faith, the relationship is more like a spiritual father to a spiritual son or daughter.

Even in the Jewish scriptures, in the prophet Isaiah, there is a comparison to God like a mother to her child. Also in the Jewish and Christian scriptures it is also compare to a husband and wife relationship or bride and groom relationship, often the Christian Church for example is called a bride.

Another difference is that when Muslims make pilgramage to Mecca, they will go around the Kabbla Stone which is in its house, even march to the point of dancing around it as well as kissing it plus the bowing down towards it when praying five times a day. This looks like all the makings of a form of worship of that very same Kabbla Stone. So there is really way too many differences to even make a claim of the Muslim God being the same as the Jewish and Christian God.
