While some of the arguments are convincing (e.g., both recognize the God of Abraham) I believe the God of Islam is most definitely NOT the God of the Old Testament.

The Islamic position on the purpose of life is quite clear. Scripture from the Quran stipulates that God created humans to be His trustee on earth.…

    Although they share many of the same core values, Islam’s religion is simple monotheism; whereas Christianity is Trinitarian monotheism. Christians are considered Trinitarian monotheism, which is when a person believes there is one god, but that one God is comprised of three parts. For Christians, God is made up of the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirt. However, Islam teaches its followers “a simple monotheism and rejected Trinitarian monotheism as polytheistic” (O’Malley 3). Essentially the Islamic culture believes that God is only one part, and it being thought of as three parts like worshiping multiple Gods.…
