the QUR’AN is the same entity as Jehovah of the Bible, just
called by a different name. This confusion is taught by Muhammad
in certain passages of the QUR’AN (Surah 2:136; 29:46). But we
need to step beyond our culture’s comfort zone of religious
“Islam claims that Allah is
the same God who was revealed in the Bible. This logically implies
in the positive sense that the concept of God set forth in the
QUR’AN will correspond in all points to the concept of God found
in the Bible. This also implies in the negative sense that if the
Bible and the QUR’AN have differing views of God, then Islam’s
claim is false.” – Robert Morey, The

The Bible teaches that there is Godhead (Rom.
1:20; Acts 17:29).
“[T]here is one essence or being, not three, but there
are three distinctive subsisting personalities in the Godhead. The

read about how great he is. Muslims contend that the Qur’an is
like Allah, uncreated and perfect in every way (Surah 85:21-22;
Surah 41:41-42). But this cannot be defended.

sacrifice for the world. Allah is far too transcendent and
capricious to stoop to such sacrificial love.
