How is Allah of Islam different from God of Christianity?
“In Islam, their job is not to have a relationship with God, it’s simply to obey God. But as Christians, we not just obey God, we also have a relationship with him.”
— Alan Shlemon, Author and Speaker, Stand to Reason
Allah and Yahweh are quite different. Alan Shlemon points out that the biggest difference between Allah and Yahweh is Yahweh’s immanence, which highlights that God is not only a transcendent being to be obeyed but also enters into the world to have relationships with us.
