How can Muslims worship the same god as Christians?

Question:

I’ve spent time in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, and other Muslim countries, and I can tell you they don’t worship the same god Christians do. They believe the Trinity is made up of God, a human Jesus, and Mary, his mother. How can they worship the same god?

Answer:

Granted, Muslims do not believe in the Trinity as we do. Nor do Jews. Yet we all believe in a Supreme Being who created and governs the universe. When St. Paul learned that the Greeks worshipped an unknown god (Acts 17:23), he identified that god as our God. Muslims worship the one God to the degree that they know him—which in our view, is a very limited knowledge.
