In the Islamic Faith, the name Allah simply translates as “God”.
Because this is true, there are actually Christians living in the middle east who use the word “Allah” when referencing the Christian God. However it is important to note that the term “God” or “Allah” means different things when spoken by different individuals.
When a Christians in the middle east reference “Allah” — they are talking about the God of the Bible. However when Muslims in the region reference “Allah” they are talking about the God of Islam (which you will soon see is very different from the God of the Bible).
Yet despite the stark difference between the God of Christianity and the god of Islam, there are many who would like both Christians and Muslims to believe that they are worshiping the same deity — The God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Jacob (Israel) — However nothing could be further from the truth.
As stated earlier, although both Christians and Muslims living in the middle east use the word “Allah” the God of their religion — each religion is worshiping a completely different deity.
However don’t take my word for it. Because there are many people who still would like to believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God — we will exam the descriptions of each God (based solely on the religious text), and from there we will use these descriptions to build a character profile of both the Christian God and the Islamic God.
By now, I am sure that many of you are wondering:
“How can we determine whether the Christian God is the same being as the Islamic God?”
The only possible way that we could determine this would be to examine the personified qualities of both beings (described in each Holy Book) and compare them with one another.
In Both the Qur’an & The Bible,
‘God’ has certain personality attributes that further establish and describe his identity.
We can use these attributes to draw a mental ‘Picture’ of the 2 beings, from there you can determine not only whether they are the same being — but also whether they are Good or Evil.
If ALL of the qualities about these 2 beings match up perfectly, then we can definitely conclude that the Christian God and the Islamic “Allah” are the same. However if even one quality between the two are incompatible with the identity of the other, then the only logical explanation is that the cannot be the same deity.
Galations 5:9– “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”
In Both Christianity and Islam, God is said to be…
When one only examines this initial list, it is understandable how some people would think that the two are the same being. However there is one area that we have not yet examined.
In the Bible, GOD is described as being honest, trustworthy, and faithful.
God is not a man; he will not lie. God is not a human being; his decisions will not change. If he says he will do something, then he will do it. If he makes a promise, then he will do what he promised.
In the Bible, GOD is also described as being perfect, holy, and a God of Light which means that there is no ‘Darkness’ (lies, evil, deception) in him.
(1Jn 1:5) This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no [deceit] at all.
(1Jn 1:6-7) If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in [deceit], we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the [truth], as he is in [truth], we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
(1Jn 1:8-9) If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1Jn 1:10) If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a LIAR, and his word is not in us.
So as we can see from this excerpt, the God of the Bible is not only Faithful and Honest, but he is also reliable and true. Because he is a God of Light, no ‘Darkness’ can flow from him because it would be incompatible with his identity.
However, the God of the Quran does NOT share this Quality (Honest, Truthful).
In fact, In the Qur’an the scriptures call their God (who we will reference as ‘Allah’ for the remainder of this post) the Greatest Deceiver out of ALL of the Deceivers.
So unlike the Christian God, The God of Islam is not truthful and honest. Instead he is deceptive and crafty (Qur’an 3:54)
Now it doesn’t take a genius to realize that if “Deception” is known as one of someone’s best qualities — that person (or entity) is one in which you can “trust” to your own peril.
The Qur’an’s Deception Passages:
(Quran 3:54) –
Literal: And they cheated/deceived and God cheated/deceived, and God (is) the best (of) the cheaters/deceivers
( Quran 7:99 ) –
Literal: Did they secure God’s scheme/deceit ? So no(one) trusts God’s scheme/deceit except the nation the losers
(Quran 8:30) –
Literal: And when those who disbelieved deceive/scheme at you to affix/affirm you, or kill you, or bring you out, and they scheme/deceive , and Allah deceives/schemes and Allah (is) best (of) the deceivers/schemers.
The Word Miim-Kaf-Ra is constantly used when referring to Allah
Miim-Kaf-Ra = “To practice deceit or guile or circumvention, practice evasion or illusion, to plot, to exercise art or craft or cunning, act with policy, practice stratagem.”
So here we see that the Qur’an OPENLY addresses Allah as a master deceiver who will indeed use the same wicked tactics that others use against them.
Now that we (and the Qur’an) can agree that Allah is a Deceiver,
we can now openly acknowledge that according to the QUR’AN…
Allah is indeed a deceiver.
So lets compare the 2 once more, however this time lets add the new quality that we have attained to this comprehensive list:
** Please note that NONE of these Characteristics are Biased, they are based solely on what each holy-book ( Bible & Qur’an ) says about God. **
These are qualities that each god proclaims to have.
After lining up the qualities of each ‘God’, not only do we discover that these two beings are NOT the same — We also find that because ‘Allah’ is a deceiver, this is contradictory to all of his other traits.
Thus presenting multiple unanswered questions regarding the validity of his deity:
The very fact that Allah is a Deceiver Omits the passages where he is said to be Loving, Merciful, and Forgiving.
If Allah says that he is loving & merciful,
how can we believe Allah if he is also Deceptive?
Allah = Deceiver ( Qur’an 3:54 )
So now that we can clearly see that the two are NOT the same, However we must now analyze who Allah really is.
By taking his ROOT characteristic (Deception) and finding the biblical parallels.
the Islamic god is called “The Greatest Deceiver” ( Qur’an 3:54 )
The Bible too also mentions the GREAT Deceiver…
(Rev 19:20) And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he Deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
The ONE trait that is truthful about Allah is also congruent to the beast; also known as the Biblical Satan.
Muslims are broken into many different groups, but the two Main factions are Sunnis & Shiites
One thing that I would like to go on record and say is that there are many peace-loving Muslims on the planet who are indeed kind & loving people.
But a Small fraction of the entire Muslim community supports the Islamic Scriptures of Violence.
Unfortunately because there are over 1.6 BILLION Muslims on the planet,
Even a SMALL fraction of this number can equate to 70 Million People who are in support of Islam’s radical ideology!
For those unaware, Radical Islam is the portion of Muslims who Kill & Behead infidels who don’t believe the same as they do (in regards to Allah and religion).
and while doing Such they shout…
which transliterates to…
“God is Great”
But we have clearly defined that the god of Islam is NOT the God of The Bible
but rather, the god of Deception.
But Who is this ‘Great Deceiver’ according to The Bible?
And the GREAT dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which Deceived the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
So with our New knowledge, We can see that this Great Deceiver
is none other than the Biblical… Satan
So apparently when Radical-Muslims cry
“allahu akbar”, meaning “god is great”
The are actually saying that the god of Deceit is great.
So Biblically speaking,they are actually crying
“Satan is Great”
Lets Examine The Passage once More…
And the GREAT dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which Deceived the Whole World: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
This future passage entails the day when Satan will be cast down to the earth, this will be during the time frame known as The Great Tribulation.
But This passage refers to a GREAT dragon who Deceives the entire WORLD…
Isn’t this closely related to Allah‘s Character?
Here, the Qur’an says that Allah is the GREATEST Deceiver.
Satan; The Devil; The Great Dragon; The Serpent; Lucifer, The Deceiver…
All of these names are synonyms for Satan….
because Satan = Deceiver,
and because Allah = Deceiver
According to the Transitive Property…
Satan = Allah ( Allah is actually SATAN )
( Therefore All Names for Satan, are now consistent names of Allah as well )
So lets re-translate some bible verses with our NEW knowledge!
(This is the FUN part)
(Rev 12:7-8) And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against (the dragon/Allah);
and (the dragon/Allah) fought and his angels fought, But they prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
(Rev 12:9) And (the dragon/Allah) was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which DECEIVETH the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is (The Devil/Allah), and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
(Rev 20:3) And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should DECEIVE the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
As we can see, the identity of Satan and Allah fit together PERFECTLY!
Even in the Book of GENESIS we can see Satan (Allah’s) Deceptive Nature!
Now (The Serpent/Allah) was more Cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto (The Serpent/Allah), We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And (The Serpent/Allah) said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
(Gen 3:9) And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
And he [GOD] said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
(Gen 3:12) And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
(Gen 3:13) And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, (The Serpent/Allah) [Deceived] me, and I did eat.
And the LORD God said unto (The Serpent/Allah), Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life
In the last passage, we see that God tells the Serpent (symbolic for the Islamic God) that because he has deceived Adam and Eve into sinning against him, he is now cursed above all beasts and that he shall crawl on his belly and eat dust all the days of it’s life.
Now in an interesting parallel, if you look at the word “Allah” in Arabic, you will notice that it bears a shocking resemblance to an actual Serpent!
Allah (Satan) is the Deceiver that is deceiving the entire WORLD!
Even the Entire Islamic Culture which accounts for OVER 20% of the earth’s population
However Satan is not just using Islam to deceive the world, he has created thousands of religions and doctrines that are aimed specifically at turning the hearts of mankind away from the eternal God who is worthy of all glory, honor, and praise.
However, Jesus made a reference to (Satan/Allah) while rebuking the Pharisees..
Ye are of your father (The Devil/Allah), and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a [Deceiver], and the father of it.
(John 8:45) And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
This passage is also synonymous to (Qur’an 3:54)
“Allah is the Greatest Deceiver“
It is amazing how we can actually see the TRUTH when we align the two Books side-by-side!
This is why Satan and Islam is so blatantly against The Bible, because it is filled with Light.
(2 Corinthians 4:3)
But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
(2 Corinthians 4:4)
Allah hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Islam calls itself the “Religion of Peace” but then demands that all infidels (non-believers) be BEHEADED!
But lets see what the Holy Bible has already said about this event.
(Rev 20:2-3) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is (The Devil/Allah), and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon (The Devil/Allah),
that he should Deceive the nations no more,till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be released a little season.
(Rev 20:4) And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them:and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped (The Beast/Allah), neither his image, neither had received (The Beast/Allah)’s mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
(Rev 20:5) But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
(Rev 20:6) Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
In this passage of scripture we can see that there will be some believers in Christ who are beheaded for their faith in Jesus.
This is amazing because throughout the News we’ve been seeing radical Islamic executions of Christians, where they are being beheaded for the Faith!
The Bible fore-told about the Islamic Murder scriptures almost 700 years BEFORE Islam‘s creation!
(Rev 20:7) And when the thousand years are expired, (Satan/Allah) shall be loosed out of his prison,
(Rev 20:8) And shall go out to DECEIVE the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number
of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Again, Here we see that Deception is consistent with Allah‘s Character.
(Rev 20:10) And (The Devil/Allah), who Deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone,
where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Now that we have covered all of this information, we can NOW plainly address the Question…
Allah, is a created being, a “Fallen” Angel….
Who chose to Rebel against The MOST HIGH GOD.
The Qur’an was accurate to call him the “Greatest Deceiver“,
because he was able to deceive 1/3 of the heavenly angels into joining him in his rebellion against The TRUE God.
But they were cast out of heaven,
So now, they spend their time trying to pull mankind away from worshiping the creator.
And are instead, trying to direct mankind to worship Devils instead.
Satan is a Devil & a MASTER deceiver, “Allah” is simply one of his many titles
( Far too names many to include them all )
It is not the PEOPLE in the religion of Islam that we fight against….
(Eph 6:11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the [ Deceit ] of Allah.
(Eph 6:12) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We fight against Spiritual Wickedness in HIGH places.
God loves the people who are trapped in Islam, and caught in Satan‘s web of “Deceit“.
It is his desire to see ALL Muslims come to the true knowledge of him & of his son Jesus Christ.
Jesus came and died to take away the Sins of the people,
But Islam tells the people that their sin is still upon them, and that the only way they can be freed from Sin and receive eternal Life is by…. SINNING ( Killing Infidels )
How can you be Set Free from Evil, by Dwelling in Evil?
That is the Equivalent of Trying to Get Clean by Sitting in Mud.
Islam tells the people that they must die for their own sins,
thus ignoring the price that Jesus paid on Calvary.
But if they ignore the only sacrifice,
What forgiveness can be attained without Christ?
Answer: There is no forgiveness without receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior.
But to all who choose to Accept it, Christ has made Salvation open and easily attainable unto ALL who desire it.
You don’t have to Kill, You don’t have to Lie, You don’t have to pray 10,000 times a day.
All You have to do is believe and receive the gift that God has freely given us through his son Jesus Christ!
** To the Reader **
– If you are a Muslim or are confused about the TRUTH, please know… that we TRULY Love you.
I write this NOT to attack you, but to point you to the true and Saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
God loves you more than words can express,
He died and gave his only son so that YOU could have Eternal Life with him.
Islam tells you that the only way you can receive salvation is by Martydom & Executing Infidels…
But I say unto you that you will NOT receive Salvation, by doing these things.
but you will actually receive CONDEMNATION.
Remember that Allah is the Greatest deceiver. ( Qur’an 3:54 )
Don’t lose your Eternal Life by believing a Lie,
Because this is the day, that Salvation is near.
All you have to do is just reach out and Grab it! 🙂
