Those who believe [in the Koran]
and those who follow the Jewish
[Scriptures] and the Christians
and the Sabians, any who believe
in Allah and the last days, and
work righteousness, shall have
their reward with their Lord, on
them shall be no fear, nor shall
(Surat Al-Baqarah 2:62).
The Jews call Uzair a son of
Allah, and the Christians call
Christ the son of Allah. That is
a saying from their mouth; [in
this] they but imitate what the
infidels (literal translation) of
old used to say. Allah's curse
be on them: how they are
deluded away from the truth
(Surat Al-Tawbah 9:30).
Let there be no compulsion in
religion: Truth stands out clear
(Surat Al-Baqarah 2:256).
Unto you your religion and unto me my religion (Surat Al-Kafirun 109:6).
Fight those who believe not in
Allah nor the last day, nor hold
that which hath been forbidden
by Allah and His Messenger
[Muhammad], nor acknowledge
the religion of truth [Islam],
from among the people of the
book [Jews and Christians]
until they pay the Jezia [special
taxes paid by the Jews and
Christians who do not want to
denounce their religion] with
willing submission, and feel
(Surat Al-Tawbah 9:29).
And fight them on until there is no more sedition (literal translation) and religion [Islam] becomes Allah's in its entirety (Surat Al-Anfal 8:39).
To Allah belong the East and the
West: whithersoever ye turn,
there is Allah's face, for Allah
is all-Embracing, All Knowing
(Surat Al-Baqarah 2: 115).
So from whencesoever thou
startest forth, turn thy face in
the direction of the sacred
mosque [the Kaaba]; and
wheresoever ye are, turn thy
(Surat Al-Baqarah 2:150).
O Prophet rouse the Believers
[Muslim] to fight, if there are
twenty amongst you, patient and
persevering, they will vanquish
two hundred: if a hundred, they
will vanquish a thousand of the
unbelievers: for these are a people
(Surat Al-Anal 8:65).
Now hath Allah lightened your
burden, for He knoweth that
there is weakness in you. So if
there be of you a steadfast
hundred they shall overcome
two hundred, and if there be of
you a thousand they shall
overcome two thousand by
permission of Allah. Allah is
with the steadfast
(Surat Al-Anfal 8:66).
Thy duty is to make [the message]
reach them. It is our part to call
them to account
(Surat Al-Rad 13:40).
If it had been Allah's will, they would not have taken false gods but We made thee not one to watch over their doings, nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs (Surat Al-Anam 6:107).
... I will instill terror into the
hearts of the unbelievers: smite
ye above their necks and smite
all their finger-tips of them this
because they contended against
Allah and His Messenger: If any
contend against Allah and His
Messenger. Allah is strict in
(Surat Al-Anfal 8:12).
O Prophet! We have made lawful
to thee thy wives to whom thou
has paid their cowers; and those
whom they right hand possesses
out of the captives of war whom
Allah has assigned to thee; and
daughters of thy paternal uncles
and aunts, and daughters of thy
maternal uncles and aunts, who
migrated with thee; and any
believing woman who gives
herself to the Prophet if the
Prophet wishes to wed her - this
only for thee, and not for the
believers [at large]; We know
what We have appointed for them
as to their wives and the captives
whom their right hands possess -
in order that there should be no
diff~culty for thee. And Allah is
Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful
(Surat Al-Ahzab 33:50).
It is not lawful for thee [to
marry more] women after this,
nor to change them for [other]
wives, even though their beauty
attract thee, except any thy right
hand should possess [as
handmaidens]: and Allah cloth
watch over all
(Surat Al-Ahzab 33:52).
And nearest among them in love
to the believers [the Muslims] wilt
thou find those who say "we are
Christians" because amongst
these are men devoted to learning
and men who have renounced the
world, and they are not arrogant"
(Surat Al-Maidah 5:82).
We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and we ordained in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy (Surat Al-Hadid 57:27).
We did aforetime grant to the children of Israel the Book, the power of command, and prophethood; We gave them, for sustenance, things good and pure; and We favoured them above all nations (Surat Al-Jathiyah 45:16).
O ye who believe! Take not the
Jews and the Christians for
your friends and protectors:
they are but friends and
protectors to each other. And
he amongst you that turns to
them [for friendship] is of
them. Verily Allah guideth not
a people unjust
(Surat Al-Maidah 5:51).
To Moses We did give Nine Clear
Signs: Ask the Children of Israel:
When he came to them, Pharaoh
said to him: "O Moses! I consider
thee, indeed, to have been worked
upon by sorcery." Moses said,
"Thou knowest well that these
things have been sent down by
none but the Lord of the heavens
and the earth as eyeopening
evidence: and I consider thee
indeed, O Pharaoh, to be one
doomed to destruction!" |
So he resolved to remove them from the face of the earth: but We did drown him and all who were with him (Surat Al-Isra 17:101-103 MPT).
We took the children of Israel
across the sea: Pharaoh and his
hosts followed them in
insolence and spite. At length,
when overwhelmed with the
flood, he said: "I believe that
there is no god except Him
Whom the children of Israel
believe in: I am of those submit
[to Allah in Islam]." |
[It was said to him]: "Ah now! - But a little while before, west thou in rebellion! - And thou didst mischief [and violence]! "This day shall We save thee in thy body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee! But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our signs!" (Surat Yunus 10:90-92).
Adam and Jesus
The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be": and he was (Surat Al-Imran 3:59).
Adam was not created by
the word "Be" but by the
breath of Allah
Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man from clay: when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, fall ye down in prostration unto him" (Surat Sad 38:70,71).
Jesus was not conceived by the word "Be"
And Mary [mother of Jesus] the daughter of Imran, who guarded her virginity (literal translation); and We breathed into [her body] of our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of his revelations, and was one of the devout [servants] (Surat Al-Tahrim 66:12).
Say: O disbelievers! I worship not
that which ye worship; nor
worship ye that which I worship.
And I shall not worship that
which ye worship. Unto you your
religion, and unto me my religion.
(Surat Al-Kafirun 109: 1-6 MPT).
Say: "If The Most Gracious
Had a son, I would be the first
(Surat Al-Zukhruf 43:81).
We have made it a Koran in
Arabic, that ye may be able to
(Surat Az-Zukhruf 43:3).
This verse indicates that the Koran is exclusively for the Arabic speaking people. It could not be a miracle, because people of other tongues cannot even read it.
He it is Who has sent down to
thee the book [the Koran]...
no one knows its true meaning
(Surat Al-Imran 3:7).
