God in Bible and Qur'an

The word Allah in the Arabic language means God, or more accurately, The One and Only Eternal God, Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful. The word Allah to mean God is also used by Arabic speaking Jews and Christians.

Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth . . . "

[Genesis 1:1 - Arabic transliteration]
"Fee al-badi' khalaqa Allahu as-Samaawaat wa al-Ard . . . "

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that . . . "

[John 3:16 - Arabic transliteration]
"Li-annhu haakadha ahabba Allahu al-'Aalama hataa badhala . . . "

Luke 1:30  " . . . Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God."

[Luke 1:30 - Arabic transliteration]
" . . . Laa takhaafee, yaa Maryam, li-annaki qad wajadti ni'amat(an) i'nda Allahi."

Luke 3:38  "the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God."

[Luke 3:38 - Arabic transliteration]
"bini Anoosha, bini Sheeti, bini Aaadama, abni Allahi." 

Worshipping NO Other Gods:
Genesis 35:2 "So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes." 
Qur'an 2:133 Had you witnessed Jacob on his death bed; he said to his children, "What will you worship after I die?" They said, "We will worship your god; the god of your fathers Abraham, Ismail, and Isaac; the one god. To Him we are submitters."

No other Gods:
Exodus 20:3 (One of the Commandments) "You shall not have no other gods before me." 
Qur'an 4:36 You shall worship GOD alone - do not associate anything with Him. ....
Isaiah 46:9 "Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me."
Qur'an: 42:9 Did they find other lords beside Him? GOD is the only Lord and Master. He is the One who resurrects the dead, and He is the Omnipotent One.
Isaiah 45:5 "I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God."
Qur'an:  42:11 .... There is nothing that equals Him. He is the Hearer, the Seer.

God is the Supreme King:
1 Samuel 2:6-8 "The Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and raises up. The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the Lord's; upon them he has set the world." 
Qur'an: 23:116 Most exalted is GOD, the true Sovereign. There is no other god beside Him; the Most Honorable Lord, possessor of all authority.

Qur'an: 20:114 Most Exalted is GOD, the only true King. ......

Qur'an: 9:116 To GOD belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He controls life and death. You have none beside GOD as a Lord and Master.

Psalm 139:7-12 "Where can I go from your Spirit: Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to you."
Qur'an: 58:7 Do you not realize that GOD knows everything in the heavens  and everything on earth? No three people can conspire secretly without  Him being their fourth, nor five without Him being the sixth, nor less than  that, nor more, without Him being there with them wherever they may be. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, He will inform them of everything they  had done. GOD is fully aware of all things.

God the all-knowing:
Psalm 147:4-5 "He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power his understanding has no limit."

Isaiah 40:28 ..."and his understanding no one can fathom."

Matthew 10:30 "And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered." 

Qur'an 19:93-94 Every single one in the heavens and the earth is a servant of the Most Gracious.He has encompassed them, and has counted them one by one.

Qur'an 3:29 Say, "Whether you conceal your innermost thought, or declare it, GOD is fully aware thereof." He is fully aware of everything in the heavens and the earth. GOD is Omnipotent.

Qur'an 72:28 ...... He (God) has counted the numbers of all things.

Qur'an 31:16 "O my son, know that even something as tiny as a mustard seed, deep inside a rock, be it in the heavens or the earth, GOD will bring it. GOD is Sublime, Cognizant.

God does not Slumber or Sleep:
Psalm 121:3-4 "He(God) will not let your foot slip- he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
Qur'an: 2:255 GOD: there is no other god besides Him, the Living, the Eternal. Never a moment of unawareness or slumber overtakes Him. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. Who could intercede with Him, except in accordance with His will? He knows their past, and their future. No one attains any knowledge, except as He wills. His dominion encompasses the heavens and the earth, and ruling them never burdens Him. He is the Most High, the Great.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob:
Exodus 3:15 God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob--has sent me to you.' This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.
Qur’an 4:163 “We have sent thee inspiration as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him; We sent inspiration to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon and to David We gave the Psalms.”
Matthew 22:32 I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living."
Qur’an 3:84 “Say: ‘We believe in Allah and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes and in (Books) given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord; we make no distinction between one and another among them and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam).’

Qur’an 2:136 “Say you: ‘We believe in God, and in that which has been sent down on us and sent down on Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob, and the Tribes, and that which was given to Moses and Jesus and the Prophets, of their Lord; we make no division between any of them, and to Him we surrender.”
