Belief About God, Allah vs. Jehovah
There is only one God, called Allah (“Al Lah” is the Arabic for the divinity, meaning “the One True God.” Allah was also the name of one of the gods worshiped by local pagan religions). Allah's last prophet was Mohammad (pbuh). Mohammad was not a god or divine in any sense, but he was a man, the final prophet, the messenger through whom Allah revealed his will. Muslims revere Mohammad, but they do not worship him. Everything and everyone depends on Allah. All Muslims, whatever their race, belong to one community: the Ummah.
Allah is described
in the Qu'ran (Surah 112:1-4) as: "...God,
the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor
is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him."
Table 32- 1 : Comparing Allah and Jehovah
The above table (table 31-1) points out significant differences between Jehovah and Allah, but by far the most important contrast is the view of sin. God as depicted in the Bible loves the sinner, but hates sin (as He cannot tolerate it because of His holiness); the Qur’an teaches that Allah hates the sinners. This fact alone explains why militant Islam approves the killing of anyone not a Muslim (any infidel). Anyone who is not a Muslim is a sinner. As Allah hates the sinners, killing an infidel is doing the will of Allah.
