Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Not a prayer's chance it does.

A poster wrote: "The Jews and Christians must study the Qur'an from the Islamic Scholar Books explanation.

They will realize at the end that the Qur'an is the book of God and Prophet Mohammad is the messenger of God to all Humanity."

This is my prima facie case against "allah" being God. Mohammed sought earthly power and riches, including women from conquest. Jesus taught us that the Kindgom of Heaven is not of this world, and he gave up His life, via a gruesome Roman execution, so that we all might live again in the Kingdom of heaven, with all the angels and saints.

No, allah and God are quite different beings, with different requirements for believing in them.
