Maimonides says that Islam is a return to the monotheism of Abraham. (Teshuvot ha-Rambam 2, no. 293)

We are taught that purpose of Islam is make straight the path for the King Messiah and to prepare the whole world to serve the Hashem together. As it is said: "For then [when the Messiah comes, Hashem] will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech so that all of them shall call on the name of the Hashem and serve him with one accord" (Zephaniah 3:9)

Some try to say that elements of the Hajj, for example throwing stones (ramy al-jamarāt), are pagan and have an origin in idolatry. We are taught that not a Muslim in the world performs any aspect of the Hajj for the sake of idolatry - there is not a wrong word or wrong thought in any of their actions, their heart is rather surrendered to Heaven." (Teshuvot ha-Rambam, no. 448)

Hi Abrahamson: It is only in the past five years or so that I have began to strongly suspect that Moslems, Jews and Christians are talking about the same people in their prophecies regarding the latter days but they use different technical jargon and thus confuse each other.

It will take a huge miracle from the G-d of Abraham to get us to the same page together but judging by the path that G-d decided to lead Israel on as they were guided out of Egypt it is pretty obvious that G-d enjoys showing off H-s power!

The Moshiach ben Ephrayim of Jewish thought could easily turn out to be the Jesus of Islam to Moslems and perhaps as Elijah to Christians?!

Yes, I think what you say is exactly true.
I will write more when I can, be'ezrat Hashem.

I read Maimonides called Muhammad a 'Mad Man'.

How does this stand in contrast with the other quotes in this thread?
