not the same God??? thats news to me!

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Submitted by Ruby Sayed (Canada), Sep 21, 2005 at 02:56

...I was born and raised a Muslim and the God i worship is the same God that the Jews and Christians worship....this is what i have been taught, not just through my family but through the community as well. it was through God, the one and only God, that each and every messenger, from Adam, to Abraham, to Moses, to Jesus, to Prophet Muhammad were sent to us. I have never, in my 25 years of existence, been told that God is a different being than Allah. As a Muslim i worship God, if you told me or other Muslims that our God is not your (jewish or christian) God many would find themselves confused. It seems that people have internalized this non-sense that Muslims are different, that we are the 'other'... and therefore the notion that our God is the same God is yours is somehow offensive to you. this is sad....
Submitting....
