Muslims believe God loves them, is compassionate and merciful towards them. (As a valid point of contention, however, there seems to be much less love from God in the Koran towards non-Muslims than the love God is said to have for everyone from a traditional Christian perspective).
For the reasons Jews consider God a "Father," and them His children, Muslims hold similar beliefs. However, calling God "Father" as you do is particularly Christian, being that the religion holds Jesus Christ as a second person of God, the Son of God.
