Maybe I'm just off base here, but it always bothers me when someone says Allah is not the same God as our God. Now I'm perfectly in agreement that the muslim community doesn't describe Him in a way that is consistent with what we know about Him. But they are talking about the One Who is the creator and sustainer of the universe, and that is only one being - God. By way of example. To some, President Bush is the savior of the republic. To others, he is the downfall of the nation. Yet both are talking about the same man. In fact, some translations of the Bible into Arabic have used Allah as the name of God in the translation. Anyway, that's my thinking. Any comments?
