Jews, history is evident , Jews were the only people who were always tested they were tested both by GOD himself as well as by people Each time , they stand to their tests and their belief was so strong they even refuse to accept prophets even send by GOD proof is ,they even rejected prophets like Jesus(pbuh)and Mohammad(pbuh) they endured all hardships in these process when the roman king , who was responsible for adulterating bible, tortured them and he imposed most oppressive laws yet he cannot make them to leave their faith even today they believe in only one GOD and reject all his prophets i have felt their faith recently i had an online Jewish friend while discussing , i mention him about the scientific errors in bible if you ask the same question to Christians , they will either say " oh ..OT ..we don't believe (even in their supplement called NT they have errors!) or they will start to brain wash you by telling lies but , my Jewish friend said "yes , there are errors in OT , but it was god's will to give errors in OT , who are you and me to question god " i could not answer him after that and i was really amazed by his staunch faith the reason for elaboration about Jews is , i think , they are the only people who stand with Muslims in faith i think , only Muslims and Jews are the real monotheists on earth next , i will give few verses from holy scriptures to prove my point my point is ,in all scriptures , we have same GOD Christianity Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord." Mark 12:29 I am Lord, and there is none else,there is no God besides me." Isaiah 45:5 I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me. Isaiah 46:9 there are lot of verses in bible , yet they are not monotheist Hinduism hose whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures. Bhagavad Gita 7:20 Ekam evadvitiyam translated as "He is One only without a second" Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1 Of Him there are neither parents nor lord Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9 His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20 The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is: There is only one God not the second; not at all, not at all,not in the least bit and the list goes on ,yet they say, EVERY THING IS god due to the length of this post , i am restricting myself to these four religion readers can add there religion in their post And Islam testifies all these religion by saying quran 002.285 The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah His angels, His books, and His messengers. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His messengers. " And they say: "We hear, and we obey (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord,, and to Thee is the end of all is it true , you opinion Thank you

Hi there Khad2000! I think that even though religions call their God with different names, we are referring to one same God, and that we recognize His existence. We may have different ways of worshiping Him and different ways and traditions when it comes to religion but the fact that we are worshiping a God is unchanged. It's just a matter of respect and acceptance of what other religions believe in as long as we adhere to the Golden Rule: Do unto others what you want others to do unto you.

Firstly Christianity is a Monotheistic religion, your understanding is incorrect, you even quote from the Gospel that confirms this. Islam is pantheistic, deifying Muhammad and affording the Quran uncreated status. Before I learnt about Islam I had assumed they worshipped the same God as Jews and Christians but the more I learn of Islam from reading and interacting with Muslims the less I am inclined to belief this all the best urban
