From the Paper:

"Both, Judaism and Islam, believe in the concept of one God; God that created the universe; God that maintains the workings of the universe and God that will ultimately end time. Both, Judaism and Islam believe that God is the source and foundation of all that is real and alive and that amongst the various attributes of God, Care for its entire creation, Justice, Righteous, Forgiving and Kind are his most looked for characteristics by his people (Paul Mojzes and Leonard Swidler, 2002). Clerics and scholars call this belief, "monotheism." Jacob Neusner and Tamara Sonn (1999) give an excellent description of the concept of monotheism in both, Judaism and Islam."
