Islam The Religion of Abraham 1

  • This, your Religion, is One
    Religion – the Religion of
    Abraham, Inclining Toward Truth
    Believe in the Qur’an that God has Sent
    down upon His Messenger and the
    Scripture which He Sent down Before
    7:3, Qur’an
    Follow, [O mankind], what has been revealed to
    you from your Lord and do not follow other than
    Him any allies. Little do you remember.
    3:2 – 3, Qur’an
    [For He is] God – there is no god except Him, the
    Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. He has
    sent down upon you, the Book in truth, confirming
    what was before it. And He revealed the Torah
    and the Gospel.
    5:47, Qur’an
    [So] let the People of the Gospel judge by what
    God has revealed therein. And whoever does not
    judge by what God has revealed – then it is those
    who are the defiantly disobedient.
    5:44, Qur’an
    [And] indeed, We sent down the Torah, in which
    was guidance and light. The prophets who
    submitted [to God] judged by it for the Jews, as
    did the rabbis and scholars by that with which
    they were entrusted of the Scripture of God, and
    they were witnesses thereto. So do not fear the
    people but fear Me, and do not exchange My
    verses for a small price. And whoever does not
    judge by what God has revealed – then it is those
    who are the disbelievers.
    4:105, Qur’an
    [And] indeed, We have revealed to you the Book in
    truth so you may judge between the people by
    that which God has shown you. And do not be for
    the deceitful an advocate.
    4:136, Qur’an
    [So] O you who have believed, believe in God and
    His messenger and the Book that He sent down
    upon His messenger, and the Scripture which He
    sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in
    God, His Books, His messengers, His angels, and
    the Last Day has certainly gone far astray –
    42:13, Qur’an
    [For] He has ordained for you of religion what He
    enjoined upon Noah and that which We have
    revealed to you [O Muhammad], and what We
    enjoined upon Abraham and Moses and Jesus – to
    establish the religion and not be divided
    therein. Difficult for those who associate others
    with God is that to which you invite them. God
    chooses for Himself whom He wills and guides to
    Himself whoever turns back [to Him].
    4:162 – 163, Qur’an
    [Thus] those firm in knowledge among them and
    the believers believe in what has been revealed to
    you [O Muhammad], and what was revealed
    before you. And the establishers of prayer
    [especially] and the givers of charity and the
    believers in God and the Last Day – those We will
    give a great reward. Indeed, We have revealed to
    you, as We revealed to Noah and the prophets
    after him. And We revealed to Abraham, Ishmael,
    Isaac, Jacob, the [twelve] tribes [of Israel], Jesus,
    Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We
    gave the Book [of Psalms].
    23:52 – 53, Qur’an
    “[So] indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and
    I am your Lord, so fear Me.” But the people
    divided their religion among them into sects –
    each faction, in what [Book] it has, rejoicing –
    2:135 – 137, Qur’an
    [For] they say, “Be Jews or Christians [so] you
    will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the
    religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he
    was not of the polytheists.” Say, “We have
    believed in God and what has been revealed to us
    and what has been revealed to Abraham and
    Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the [twelve]
    tribes [of Israel] and what was given to Moses
    and Jesus and what was given to the prophets
    from their Lord. We make no distinction between
    any of them, and we are in submission to Him.”
    So if they believe in the same as you believe in,
    then they have been [rightly] guided; but if they
    turn away, they are only in dissension, and God
    will be sufficient for you against them. And He is
    the Hearing, the Knowing.
