These faiths are also known as the [[Abrahamic religion]]s, as [[Abraham]] is a central figure in all three before the religions supposedly diverged.)

Allah (Arabic: الله) is the God of Islam and the Qur'an. Although this god is called by his personal name of Allah, he is generally considered to be the same god as that of the Christians and Jews, whom the Muslims call "The People of the Book" (ahl al kitab). It is believed by Muslims that Allah revealed the Torah (Taurat) To Moses (Musa), the Psalms (Zabur) to David (Dawud) and the Gospels (injil) through Jesus (Isa), but that these books were corrupted, requiring Allah to send the message again to Muhammad in the form of the Quran through the angel Gabriel (Jibreel).

Allah has all the same characteristics of the Christian God: he is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and supposedly omnibenevolent.
