Muslim god is the same god as the Christian one (and the Jewish one) though.

@kwippo: Ace says 'Muslim God' because he himself isn't sure of the religion - it's more of a thank you to Asyraf's god, rather than the 'God' Himself

That is quite surprising. I thought it was common knowledge. I guess not.

@kwippo: the majority of the population in singapore are Chinese, with Singaporean Malays and Indians making up almost 22% altogether.Islam is mostly embraced by Malays and Indians whilst the majority of Chinese are Buddhists, if I'm not mistaken, around 40%, and the second biggest religion amongst the Chinese is Christianity. Singapore being a secular country has no religious context in their national schools, only religious schools do hence most of the locals are not really well-versed in their religions or any other religions. There's also a political dispute in Malaysia regarding the claiming of Allah to be exclusively Muslims'-not Singapore but I know some Singaporeans who share this mentality. Most of my Chinese friends don't really bother about other religions as well, so even though historically we all understand that we believe in the same God, the way things work now, even Muslims think we believe different Gods.

@featherpencil: Argh, my comment was deleted.
Anyway, what I wanted to say is that it is honestly surprising, no joke here!
I honestly thought that it was known that the Christian, Muslim and Jewish god was the same one. Or that it was accepted as such.
At least there's one thing that Muslim Arabs, Christian Arabs and Jewish people agree on here - that god is the same one in all 3 religions and that Jerusalem is a holy city for all 3.
(I'm secular and an atheist though, so I could care less. But it's still interesting to know that it's different in different places of the world).

@kwippo: yeah, i got it, don't worry! i just thought you would have assumed that since Israel is not a secular country and Arabs do all say Allah. Asians aren't that knowledgable in the Abrahamic religion from what I've noticed..there's too much politics going on it's annoying tbh
