Is Islam an Abrahamic Religion?

I was on the Trinity Channel addressing the question of whether Islam is an Abrahamic religion. I was joined by Osama Abdallah on the Islamic position, and Rabbi Nachum Shifren on the Jewish position. The show was hosted by Tony Gurule and Joe Carey.

I just want to say something that might have nothing to do with the video posted, but you guys, David, Jonathan, Sam, Anthony, Nabeel, Tony, many thanks. Doing what you guys do isn't easy, emotionally, spiritually, but yet, the Lord has seen it fit to grant his Holy Spirit for you guys to soldier on for us all. The amount of study and work and research involved and to deal with all the hate and silly arguments that come your way, I want you guys to know you are very appreciated. Please keep going, and may we, through the grace of Jesus and the work of you guys lead more souls to be saved by his holy name.

Thank you all, and I can't say this enough.

@ Osama Abdallah,
I heard your debate with interest and understand that you believe our Bible as true word of God, because you defended your Islam as Abrahamic Religion based on false interpretation of Word of God that no sensible person can agree with your interpretation.

Islam believes Muhammad is decedent of Ismael, son of Abraham and now you see for yourself what Holy Bible talked about Ismael and judge whether you are worshiping Holy God of Abraham believing Muhammad and his Allah as described in Quran:

Genesis 16:11-12
11 The angel of the LORD also said to her (Hagar):
“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,[a]
for the LORD has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward[b] all his brothers.”

Could a savior of mankind come from a wild donkey, whose hand will be against everyone as the holy Bible prophesied about decedent of Ishmael? Muslims are enemy of everybody even to their Muslims brothers since Muhammad’s time till today. Come to sense Osama for your salvation only not to increase Christian population!

If Islam is an Abrahamic religion then so too are the Bahai and Mormons.

Looks like the only muslim who is willing to be continously being sliced (his misplaced notion of martyrdom) is Osama Abdullah!

Honestly, Where is the debate!
muslims claim that Deuteronomy 18 points to muhammad as a descendant of Abraham.. by completely ignoring the clear context of the passage.

Then the very next step MUST be cleared up by the supposedly all knowing book, koran,
"WHERE is the clear genealogy of muhhamd to Abraham in the koran"? PERIOD

The Bible records what we are asking for is not extraordinary but a necessity!

"WHERE is the debate"?

Osama in his desperation uses passages from Jeremiah & Isaiah, to show that muhammad is shown there!
WHEN did Jeremiah & Isaiah form part of the Torah, the koran states you can find him in the Torah!
The muslim arguments shows lack of integrity and is dishonest!

I believe I have successfully proven that Ishmael was indeed the sacrificial son, even according to the Bible with all of its corruptions and alterations. Ironically, the Jewish Rabbi even said they had to lie regarding Jacob and Essau to ensure that the Jews have the covenant. Lying on GOD Almighty is what the corrupt Judaism is built on. The original one is different. The original one is ISLAM:

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

@ Osama

As usual ZERO assistance from that supposedly "all knowing" koran in clearing the wild desperate muslims claims!

Where is the genealogy of muhamad to Abraham in the koran?

The Bible records genealogies, so where muhammad's genealogy in the koran?
Dont need convoluted empty verbose writings!
