Why are people referring to Christian God and Muslim God as two different Gods? There is only one God. He is called by many names in different countries.

  • We can't really explain why "people" do what they do without at least some idea of who these "people" are. As phrased, this question appears to be leading into a particular opinion rather than an actual practical question on the topic of Islam. I would strongly suggest you check out the page in our help centre on "What types of questions shouldn't I ask here?" as the Stack Exchange model is not particularly geared toward rhetorical questions and discussion topics.

For the same reason that Jews do not call Jesus God. To a Muslim, the God that Christians believe in as God the Father is the same as the one they believe in, they just believe that the Christians have inaccurate views about the Godhood of Jesus and misunderstandings about the nature of God.

To a Christian however, the Islamic deity is not real, but rather a twisted perversion of God by a false prophet, thus, to a Christian, it is not the same.

Christians have a similar thing since they view their God the Father as the same as the Jewish God. To Christian's the Old Testament is explained as God's demonstration that humans can not save themselves, no matter how much aid they are given by God. He set a people apart, told them to kill anyone and anything that might get in their way, richly blessed them, and still they repeatedly failed to follow after God.

To Jews however, they see the law as the means to peace with God. This results in significant differences in the way that Christian's and Jews see God, though Christians view the Jewish position as simply misunderstanding the same God, while Jews would see the Christian version of God as a fabrication.

  • "Christians have a similar thing since they view their God the Father as the same as the Jewish God" did Jews certify that "the Father" which you're talking about is the same "Lord God" of theirs? Or did they too tell the same thing, because "the Christianic deity or The Father is not real, but rather a twisted perversion of God by a false prophet"??? May 10, 2015 at 17:52
  • It's a bit interested and I can't really speak to the Jewish perspective. Certainly Jews reject any clarifications about God the Father that are found in the New Testament, however Christianity is a bit different from Islam in that Christianity agrees with Jews about the veracity of the Old Testament/Torah. We differ in interpretation of the prophecies, but hold the same prophecies and stories to be true. Conversely, the Quran makes claims of significant difference from the narrative of the Old Testament/Torah, so is not really compatible in text or interpretation. May 10, 2015 at 18:39

    Overall though, it really is a bit of a shell doll type situation where each level of decedent religion views the others as close but slightly off where as the lower levels view the later versions as heretical. May 10, 2015 at 18:40
  • If you want me to be honest, for a muslim, its an utterly balderdash statement to listen "The Father is not = Allah" just because of difference of one and only one single attribute, i.e. we believe this is odd one out, and hence not authentic, that's it. And about this we think it's a made up thing & we follow the Unitarian style still being Christian. May 10, 2015 at 19:54
  • and still worshiping the same "The Father" or what we call "Allah" Or entirely and the other way around, our beliefs completely match with that of Jews except for one thing i.e. 8th part in here and the Christian beliefs are what differing I can say. May 10, 2015 at 19:54
