Thoughts from the Holy Qur’an

Thoughts from the Holy Qur’an

According to What is Best
In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful, Most Compassionate
Do not argue with the People of the Book unless It is in a kindly
manner, except for those of them who do wrong.
SAY: "We believe in what has been sent down to us and what has
been sent down to you. Our God and your God is [the Same]
One, and we are committed to [observe] peace before Him.
Thus We have sent you down the Book. The ones whom We
have given the Book to believe in it. Some of those are [people]
who believe in it; only disbelievers repudiate Our signs. You had
not been reciting any book previously nor did you copy it down
with your right hand; otherwise quibblers would suspect it. Rather
it exists as clear signs in the breasts of those who have been given
knowledge. Only wrongdoers repudiate Our signs. They say: "If
only some signs were sent down to him from his Lord!"
SAY: "Signs rest only with God; I am merely a plain Warner." Is it
not sufficient for them that We have sent you down the Book to
be recited to them? In that lies mercy plus a Reminder for folk
who believe. [Qur’an 29:46-51] T.B.Irving
