"Allahu Akbar" does not mean "God is great" as claimed. It actually means Allah is greater.
One imaginary, nonexistent thing is no greater and no lesser than another imaginary, nonexistent thing.

Yes all 4 faiths worship the same God,that's what I believe.
It has been suggested that the phrase, "Abrahamic religion," may simply mean that all these religions come from one spiritual source. Christians refer to Abraham as a "father in faith."There is an Islamic religious term, Millat Ibrahim (The nation of Abraham), indicating that Islam sees itself as having practices tied to the traditions of Abraham. In addition to Jewish direct birth descendancy from Abraham, adherents follow his practices and ideals as the first of the three spiritual "fathers," Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.All the major Abrahamic religions claim a direct lineage to Abraham.

Allah is nothing more than the Arabic name for god, just like Spanish speakers worship Dios, Gut in Danish, Dieu in French, or Theos in Greek. Same myth, different pronunciation.

lol. The "God" of the Koran teaches that all Jews and Christians are to burn in Hell, while the Bible's God clearly despises false prophets who steer people away from knowing God, and people that shower love and peace upon what is openly, unrepentantly evil. They are opposite.

I didn't say they know it, but their ignorance and absurd beliefs are irrelevant. There IS only one God in existence. whatever nonsense they believe about God.

From the atheist perspective: yes, of course.

But it's not as simple as just saying it's the same god. The best analogy is that of characters that have passed into the public domain. (And what is god if not the oldest character?).

Take, for instance, Dracula. Since the character was first conceived, there have been dozens of takes, reimaginings, reboots, etc. It is hard to believe that the Dracula of Bram Stoker's original book is the "same" as the Dracula who pops up in, say Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The purposes of Dracula changes as the story changes. The author decides who he or she needs Dracula to be.

The Abrahamic God is the same. There were the original story tellers, but over time, different groups of authors have weaved their own version. All are identifiably the same God, just like how each example of Dracula is never in doubt. But the stories change.

The "God" of Islam despises Christians and Jews. It is taught that Allah creates, and purposefully leads Christians and Jews astray so that they will fill up Hell in the place of all Islammists.
