He alone is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world John 1: All have sinned and are justified freely, without their own works and merits, by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, in His blood Romans 3: This is necessary to believe. This cannot be otherwise acquired or grasped by any work, law or merit.
Therefore, it is clear and certain that this faith alone justifies us Nothing of this article can be yielded or surrendered, even though heaven and earth and everything else falls Mark Those who believe in that which is revealed unto thee, Muhammadand those who are Jews, and Christians, and Sabaeans — whoever believeth in Allah and the Last Day and doeth right — surely their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.
That is because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud. When they listen to that which hath been revealed unto the messengers, thou seest their eyes overflow with tears because of their recognition of the Truth.
Our Lord, we believe. Inscribe us as among the witnesses. How should we not believe in Allah and that which hath come unto us of the Truth.
And how should we not hope that our Lord will bring us in along with righteous folk? Allah hath rewarded them for that their saying — Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever.
That is the reward of the good.

- Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?
John makes extensive reference to the Quran and, in St. Johns's opinion, its failure to live up to even the most basic scrutiny. The work is not exclusively concerned with the Ismaelites a name for the Muslims as they claimed to have descended from Ismael but all heresy. The Fount of Knowledge references several suras directly often with apparent incredulity. From that time to the present a false prophet named Mohammed has appeared in their midst. This man, after having chanced upon the Old and New Testaments and likewise, it seems, having conversed with an Arian monk, devised his own heresy.
Then, having insinuated himself into the good graces of the people by a show of seeming piety, he gave out that a certain book had been sent down to him from heaven. He had set down some ridiculous compositions in this book of his and he gave it to them as an object of veneration. There are many other extraordinary and quite ridiculous things in this book which he boasts was sent down to him from God.
But when we ask: And which of the prophets foretold that such a prophet would rise up?
Christianity and Islam
And we remark that Moses received the Law on Mount Sinaiwith God appearing in the sight of all the people in cloud, and fire, and darkness, and storm. And we say that all the Prophets from Moses on down foretold the coming of Christ and how Christ God and incarnate Son of God was to come and to be crucified and die and rise again, and how He was to be the judge of the living and dead. Then, when we say: And how is it that God did not in your presence present this man with the book to which you refer, even as He gave the Law to Moses, with the people looking on and the mountain smoking, so that you, too, might have certainty?
Theophanes reports about Muhammad thus: In fact, in 5. The same is the case when we consider the doctrine of the Trinity.
Christianity and Islam - Wikipedia
Islam roundly condemns worship of the Trinity 5. Tawhid, the absolute oneness of God. Tawhid specifically denies the Trinity, so much so that it is safe to say the doctrine of God in Christianity is antithetical to the doctrine of God in Islam.
Not just different but completely opposed to one another. There is much more to be said about the differences between the Christian God and the Muslim God, but this much can already be said with confidence: According to Islam, worshiping the Christian God is not just wrong; it sends you to Hell.
They are not the same God. So how can people argue that Muslims and Christians worship the same God? By unduly giving priority to the Islamic assertion that this is the same God. Ultimately, this is the reasoning of those who believe, as I once did, that Muslims and Christians worship the same God, and it is flawed. The similarities between the God of Islam and the God of Christianity are fairly superficial, and at times simply semantic.
Though Islam claims that the Muslim God has done some of the same things as the Christian God and sent some of the same people, that is not enough to say that Muslims worship the same God as Christians. These minor overlaps are far less essential to the reality of who God is than the fundamental differences of his nature and persons.
What God has done or whom He has sent is far less of a defining characteristic than what He is and who He is; though Islam and Christianity overlap at points on the former, they differ fundamentally on the latter. How can Christians accuse Muslims of worshiping a different God without also indicting the Jews of doing the same?
That would be inconsistent or hypocritical. The response should be obvious to those who have studied the three Abrahamic faiths: Most of the earliest Christians were Jews, incorporating their encounter with Jesus into their Jewish theology.
Nothing of the sort is true of Muhammad, who was neither a Jew nor a Christian. Islam did not elaborate on the Trinity but rejected and replaced it.Why Are Pictures of Muhammad Forbidden In Islam?
Many Jews held their monotheism in tension with a belief in multiple divine persons. It was not until later, when Jews and Christians parted ways, that Jews insisted on a monadic God. The charge of Christian hypocrisy is anachronistic. Conclusion The question of whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God is complex.
