/* Christianity and Judaism */
The name Allah however, is used by Arab Christians throughout the Middle East. It is also used by Arabic Jews, especially those residing in Yemen. In Arabic it generically takes the place of the name of diety.
According to the [[Koran]] the authority of the [[Torah]] and the [[Gospels]] is subordinated to the content of Islamic revelation. While some
parallels and [[proper noun]]s exist with the Hebrew [[Old Testament]] scriptures, some passages and contexts contradict the teachings of Hebrew and Christian doctrines. It was claimed by the prophet [[Mohammed]] that both the Jewish and Christian scriptures, were "corrupted" (from the Arabic term: ''Tahrif''). ''Accordingly, since the Koran has remained unaltered to the present day, (compared to the other Scriptures) Muslims assert that only the Koran contains the Words of God -- the truth in toto (i.e., the whole truth and nothing but the truth). Whereas the earlier Scriptures/Books such as The New Testament, The Old Testament, etc. contain only partial truths.'' <ref>[http://muslim-canada.org/islam_christianity.html Islam and Christianity.]</ref>
