      No. Gabriel is an angel in both faiths. Period.

          Yeah, same angel but with two different names: In Islam Gariel is called Jibril, for instance.

        I meant "Yes. Gabriel is an angel in both faiths". Sorry for the confusion...

      No.

      From Galatians:
      6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! 9As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!

      As Islam is fundamentally different in every regard from the Christian Gospel, Gabriel of the bible cannot therefore be the same "Gabriel" of Islam.

        [2:97] Say, "Anyone who opposes Gabriel should know that he has brought
        down this (Quran) into your heart, in accordance with GOD's will, confirming
        previous scriptures, and providing guidance and good news for the believers."

        Above is a verse from the Quran, the Holy book Of islam; it is the same angle, no doubt about that.

          Muslims believe in Christ too but ina different way. Here are 2 verses from the Quran:

          Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how God makes His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!" (5:75).
          "He [Jesus] said: 'I am indeed a servant of God. He has given me revelation and made me a prophet; He has made me blessed wheresoever I be; and He has enjoined on me prayer and charity as long as I live. He has made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable. So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)!' Such was Jesus the son of Mary. It is a statement of truth, about which they (vainly) dispute. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) God that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He only says to it, 'Be,' and it is" (19:30-35).

          By the way, Christainity, Islam and Judism are called monotheistic faiths and share many similarities, which sometimes revolve around different beliefs on the same thing.

        So the Abraham's, Isaac's and Ishmael's are different people in each historical account?

        To say they are the same is not to say that both religions are correct, just that they reference the same... characters, for lack of a better word.

            I don't usually venture into the dark underbelly of the Religious sub-forums but I found this topic interesting enough to click on from the front page so I just had to dig.

            I won't link to it, but hub/gabriel is a short hub with a few interesting bits of information concerning the archangel Gabriel.

      Hi friend pisean282311

      For Moses, Jesus and Muhammad Gabriel or the Holy Spirit was the same; Gabriel was not a god to them. Clever Paul and the Church imported new creeds into "Christianity"- a misnomer and made the holy spirit as unholy by making him a person of the Trinity; which is totally wrong. One could ascertain it from the following little questions/discussion:

      Christian-God-the-Father; is he male or female and has a wife or a husband?
      Christian-god-the-spirit;is he male or female and has a wife or a husband?
      Christian-god-the-son; is he male or female and has a wife or a husband?
      Why the Christian-god is not a daughter or a neutral gender.

      Thanks

          Hi friend pisean282311

          Jesus was a great man; he never believed the creeds that clever Paul invented and/or imported from pagans at Rome. He made a drama that he saw a vision in which Jesus has made him his successor; a total fake thing. The present "Christianity" is founded by clever Paul and the Church; it has nothing to do with Jesus and his teachings. If you want more detail on cunning Paul; please read the following:

              Hi friend pisean282311

              Did you read the whole of it? It is a lengthy research work of a Christian scholar who has been teaching and training Christian missionaries for a long time.

              Cunning Paul tricked the simple minded "sheep" or simple minded people into believing that the "wolf" ,as told by Jesus, was their religious leader in "sheep's clothing". Jesus was a fair and kind hearted man and the Loved One and Chosen One of the Creator-God Allah YHWH; never a god or son of god; these concepts were alien concepts to Jesus; but Paul made them the core creeds of the Christianity. Paul was a false Prophet in terms of Deuteronomy; and hence got killed as mentioned by Moses.

              Paul is like Joseph Smith Jr. who is also a false Prophet and hence got killed like Paul.

              But the Christians don't understand!

              Thanks

                It's the same tired old Islamic libel against Paul because Paul held fast to the Gospel of Christ. Their argument is that he deceived the church. We could also argue that Muhamed deceived the Arabs.

                For as many Muslims who call Paul a false prophet, there is a Christian who calls Muhamed a false prophet.

    This one has a bit of information on each of the four archangels: /hub/The-Four-ArchAngels

    There's a link in that hub to the Wikipedia entry for Gabriel which as expected, goes into quite some detail.
