GOD SAYS IN THE QUR'AN THAT
THERE ARE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE IN GOD

 

THEY ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. THERE IS A COMMUNITY AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK WHO ARE UPRIGHT. THEY RECITE ALLAH’S SIGNS THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, AND THEY PROSTRATE. They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong, and compete in doing good. They are among the righteous. You will not be denied the reward for any good thing you do. Allah knows those who guard against evil. (Surah Al ’Imran, 113-115)

AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK THERE ARE SOME WHO BELIEVE IN ALLAH AND IN WHAT HAS BEEN SENT DOWN TO YOU AND WHAT WAS SENT DOWN TO THEM, AND WHO ARE HUMBLE BEFORE ALLAH. They do not sell Allah’s signs for a paltry price. Such people will have their reward with their Lord. And Allah is swift at reckoning. (Surah Al ’Imran, 199)

Those to whom We sent the Book before this,THEY DO BELIEVE IN THIS (REVELATION). And when it is recited to them, they say: "WE BELIEVE THEREIN, FOR IT IS THE TRUTH FROM OUR LORD: indeed we have been Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will) from before this.” (Surat al-Qasas, 52-53)

But those of them WHO ARE FIRMLY ROOTED IN KNOWLEDGE, and the believers, believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you: those who perform prayer and give the alms, and believe in Allah and the Last DayWe will pay such people an immense wage. (Surat al-Nisa’, 162)

Those with faith, those who are Jews, and the Christians and Sabaeans, ALL WHO BELIEVE IN ALLAH AND THE LAST DAY AND ACT RIGHTLY, WILL HAVE THEIR REWARD WITH THEIR LORD. They will feel no fear and will know no sorrow. (Surat al-Baqara, 62)

Those who believe and those who are JEWS AND THE SABAEANS AND THE CHRISTIANS, ALL WHO BELIEVE IN ALLAH AND THE LAST DAY AND ACT RIGHTLY will feel no fear and will know no sorrow. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 69)

YOU WILL FIND THE PEOPLE MOST AFFECTIONATE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE ARE THOSE WHO SAY, “WE ARE CHRISTIANS.” That is because some of them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 82)

IN THE QUR’AN, THOSE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK WHO BELIEVE ARE NOT REGARDED AS EQUIVALENT TO THOSE WHO DO NOT


AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK THERE ARE SOME WHO, IF YOU ENTRUST THEM WITH A PILE OF GOLD, WILL RETURN IT TO YOU. But there are others among them who, if you entrust them with just a single dinar, will not return it to you, unless you stay standing over them. That is because they say, “We are under no obligation where the gentiles are concerned.” They tell a lie against Allah and they know it. (Surah Al ’Imran, 75)

MUSLIMS’ CALL TO THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK

Only argue with the People of the Book in the kindest wayexcept in the case of those of them who do wrong–SAYING, “WE BELIEVE IN WHAT HAS BEEN SENT DOWN TO US AND WHAT WAS SENT DOWN TO YOU. OUR GOD AND YOUR GOD ARE ONE AND WE SUBMIT TO HIM.” (Surat al-Ankabut, 46)

Say, “PEOPLE OF THE BOOK! COME TO A PROPOSITION WHICH IS THE SAME FOR US AND YOUthat we should worship none but Allah and not associate any partners with Him and not take one another as lords besides Allah.” If they turn away, say, “Bear witness that we are Muslims.” (Surah Al ’Imran, 64)

Allah DOES NOT FORBID YOU FROM BEING GOOD TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT FOUGHT YOU IN THE RELIGION OR DRIVEN YOU FROM YOUR HOMES, OR FROM BEING JUST TOWARDS THEM. Allah loves those who are just. (Surat al-Mumtahana, 8)

THE FOOD OF THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK IS LAWFUL FOR MUSLIMS, AND THEY CAN MARRY WOMEN OF THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK

Today all good things have been made lawful for you. AND THE FOOD OF THOSE GIVEN THE BOOK IS ALSO LAWFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR FOOD IS LAWFUL FOR THEM. So are chaste women from among the believers and CHASTE WOMEN OF THOSE GIVEN THE BOOK BEFORE YOU, once you have given them their dowries in marriage, not in fornication or taking them as lovers. But as for anyone who rejects faith, his actions will come to nothing and in the hereafter he will be among the losers. (Surat al-Ma’ida, 5)
