Tao and other religion.

If I was Muslim or the Christian, then can I be a Taoist and assume that Tao is the principle of all things, including my God?
For some reason, as a former believer, I think so, but it seems that I am mistaken in some way.
In other way. If Tao is a principle or nature of all things, should entities that live outside of space and time have their own Tao / Follow the Tao?

You can believe anything. Tao is the principle of your God or not. This is simple up to you. It doesn't change the Tao.
Regarding the second question: Tao is the ruler of everyting (the ten-thousand things, meaning really everyting) be it alive or not, visible or invisible etc.
