Islam IS the religion of Abraham

Reader comment on item: Is Prince Charles a Convert to Islam?
in response to reader comment: ISLAM IS NOT ABRAHAMIC FAITH

Submitted by Muslimah (United States), Nov 7, 2008 at 16:52

"Abraham was neither a "Jew" nor a "Christian", but was one who turned away from all that is false, having surrendered himself unto God; and he was not of those who ascribe divinity to aught beside Him." (Quran 3:67)

"Citizen" - neither you nor the webpage you sited know anything about Islam. Muslims do not revere the moon, nor any other of His creation as objects of worship. We worship the One Single God who is Creator of everything that exists. Allah is even the name Arabic speaking Jews and Christians use to refer to the One God.

"Now among His signs are the night and the day, as well as the sun and the moon: [hence,] ADORE NOT the sun or the moon, but prostrate yourselves in adoration before God, who has created them - if it is Him whom you [really] worship." (Quran 41:37)
