From the website of the Noble Qur'an, www.quran.com “Muslims believe the Qur’an is the book of Divine guidance and direction for mankind, and consider the original Arabic text the final revelation of Allah (God).”

Allah (God)

(Surah 5:57)“And fear Allah, if you should [truly] be believers (Muslims).”

(Surah 3:32) “... Allah (God) does not like the disbelievers (non-Muslims).”

(Surah 16:107, 9:37) “... Allah does not guide the disbelieving people.”

Religion of Islam

(Surah 3:19) “Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah (God) is Islam.”

Muslims (Believers)

(Surah 3:110) “You (Muslims) are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah (God). If only the People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) had believed, it would have been better for them.”


(Surah 4:34) “Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other ... So righteous women are devoutly obedient … But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them.”

Disbelievers (Non-Muslims)

(Surah 98:6) “Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures.”

(Surah 8:36-37) “And those who have disbelieved - unto Hell they will be gathered. [This is] so that Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers.”

Jews and Christians (Disbelievers)

(Surah 5:51) “O you who have believed (Muslims), do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies (friends).”

(Surah 3:28) “Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah (God),”

(Surah 5:33) “Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah (God) and His Messenger (Mohammad) and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off … or that they be exiled from the land.”

Polytheists (Believers in Many Gods e.g. Hindus)

(Surah 9:5) “... kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush.”

Commands to Muslims

(Surah 9:29) “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger (Mohammad) have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth (Islam) from those who were given the Scripture (Jews and Christians) ...”

(Surah 2:190-191) “Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors. And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah (affliction and distress) is worse than killing.”

(Surah 48:29) “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers (non-Muslims), ...”

(Surah 9:123) “O you who have believed (Muslims), fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers (non-Muslims) and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.”

(Surah 8:39) “And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion (Islam), all of it, is for Allah.”

Muslims Who Disobey or Reject Islam

(Surah 9:39) “If you do not go forth, He (Allah) will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another people, ...”

(Surah 16:106) “Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief (in Islam) ... But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah, and for them is a great punishment;”
