Many Muslims will tell you that Christians and Muslims both worship God. This declaration is often offered as a response to the noticeable differences in the way Christians and Muslims live out what they believe. It is only one attempt among many to quell fears that Islam is not really a violent belief system in spite of its fruits. Ultimately, the “fact” that Christians and Muslims both worship God becomes an evangelistic tool toward Christians, atheists and people of various religions. If this were true and we both do worship God, one might ask why they would rather people become Muslim than Christian and worship Allah rather than Yahweh. Why the need to evangelize to Christians at all? Essentially, this idea is just part of a giant public relations campaign to verbally promote Islam as a religion of peace in order to make it acceptable worldwide.
Anyone who reads the Bible and the Quran (along with the other Islamic writings) can tell right away that God and Allah are not the same. But, rather than compare verses between the Bible and the Quran, I’m going to take a different approach to answering these frequent questions to show you the most striking and astonishing difference between Yahweh and Allah.
I’m going to show you a comparison of Islamic prophecy with Bible prophecy (yes, Islam has end-time prophecy, too) and in doing so we will be able to actually identify beyond a reasonable doubt that Allah is a real being who is familiar to all of us whether we are Christians or not. What follows is a concise comparison of the main figures in Christian and Islamic eschatology (prophecy).
Christian Bible prophecy tells of three main persons of darkness and destruction who will be present on the earth at the time of the end. They are the Antichrist, the False Prophet and the Dragon, or Satan. After a time, all three will be defeated and destroyed by the returning Christian Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Islamic prophecy also tells of three main persons who will be present on the earth at the time of the end and who will wage war against a returning Jesus Christ. They are the Mahdi, the Muslim Jesus (Isa) and Allah. Islam also has an “antichrist” figure called the Dajjal. All three will wage war against the Dajjal. The Dajjal is, of course, the biblical Jesus Christ.
Let’s take a brief look at the Islamic end-time persons. I’ve used color-coding for easier understanding.
The Mahdi is Islam’s awaited messiah. Muslims believe he will come to help them defeat the Christians and the Jews at the time of the end. He will rule the entire world. The Mahdi is the biblical Antichrist.
