“He (Muhammad) said he had received revelations from God. He (Muhammad) said this was the same God who had spoken to Abraham, Jesus, and prophets and religious figures of Judaism and Christianity.” p. 542, My World History (Early Ages)

Muhammad’s god Allah is not the same God of Judaism and Christianity. No Jew or Christian of Muhammad’s time period accepted Muhammad’s god as the God of Abraham or Jesus. Jews and Christians had the only monotheistic religions of the Arabia Area. Muhammad attempted to claim the same monotheistic god as Jews and Christian in order to legitimize his religion. Muhammad made many other false claims about Islamic connections to Judaism and Christianity.
