As with Christianity, monotheism is pivotal to Islamic doctrine. The Koran does not attempt to prove or argue the existence of Allah; it proclaims his existence as a matter of fact. Allah is removed, aloof and distant. He is considered to be neither wholly a spirit nor a physical entity, but an entirely separate form of creation.
Jehovah God, in contrast, has always been portrayed as seeking a relationship with mankind. He walked and talked with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. He sought to have a relationship marked by this definition: “You will be My people and I will be Your God.”
The Koran presents Allah as “far” , transcendent only. As a Muslim theologian has stated, “He remains hidden forever.” The Bible presents Jehovah as “drawing near”, “coming down” and “seeking after” man. The first question we find in the Bible is God calling to Adam and Eve, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9).
In the Bible, it is man who is portrayed as hiding from God, not God hidden in secrecy from mankind.
