The Myth of the “Three Abrahamic Religions”

In examining the Islamic account of the Islamised Abraham, renamed Ibrahim, and comparing it with the Biblical account of Abram and later Abraham, the main seeming resemblance between the two accounts is that of the concept of the “sacrifice of the son”. Even then, the two “sacrifice” stories are vastly different in detail and, of course, in outcomes and concluding doctrines. All other aspects of the life stories of Abram/Abraham vs. Ibrahim, are strikingly different. Yet, it is the accepted norm for many Christian theologians and missiologists to refer to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as the “three monotheistic Abrahamic religions”, thus joining them together in one group that is distinct from other belief systems.

Strangely enough, the Qur’an unequivocally denounces any association of Ibrahim with Jews or Christians and their beliefs:

Surah 3:67, “Ibrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was a true Hanafi Muslim and he was not of those who associate partners with Allah.
