I heard it most of my life by ignorant people who refuse to understand especially in an American High School and beyond (work area) such as "Oh you have your own religion, you are a pagan, you believe in the a God called, 'Allah'." Not understanding I am a Christian like them and understanding their are over 150 languages in this world.
No one here has made such a claim, as far as I can see, so you seem to be debating the wrong people.
Well, do me a favour, ask a Jew, "Do you believe in the God of Abraham?" and then ask a Christian "Do you believe in the God of Abraham?" and then ask a Muslim "Do you believe in the God of Abraham?" Once you have done that let me know their answers. Thanks.
I've already pointed out the problem of this overly simplistic approach with an example using the word "Democracy".
However to answer you specifically, the Moslem idea of Abraham and Moses is not the same as yours or mine. Moslems believe that Moses was a Moslem. They believe that the message he brought to the people was the same as that Jesus brought, then Muhammed brought; Islam. They believe however that Jews, and then Christians either acted duplictously in corrupting the message, or lost it through some other means.
In the Koran it says Moses was a Moslem...
And Moses fell down senseless. And when he woke he said: Glory unto Thee! I turn unto Thee repentant, and I am the first of (true) believers.
9:32 They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians)* want to extinguish Allah's Light (with which Muhammad has been sent - Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafirun (disbelievers) hate (it).
Do any search of the word "Jew" in the Koran and you're likely to find a verse that isn't too flattering...
And when it is said to them (the Jews), "Believe in what Allah has sent down," they say, "We believe in what was sent down to us." And they disbelieve in that which came after it, while it is the truth confirming what is with them. Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him to them): "Why then have you killed the Prophets of Allah aforetime, if you indeed have been believers?"
The Jews here (according to the Koran) only 'claim' to believe in what was sent to them, but they don't.
If you have the time, I suggest you follow any of the links at the following site, which compares God to allah.http://www.answering-islam.org/God/index.html
No I would not allow the conversion of my Church, that I agree, but I believe in refuge and prayers when needed by all as Jesus has taught me with True Love and not with ignorance, hatred, judgment and revenge with blood.
Well then that's the point of this thread, isn't it?
Moslems have started turning churches into Mosques.

(which I hope is still up and running) and are meant to guide Moslems into a more proper understanding of whom is being spoken about. I include these too.
