Religious Minorities in the Qur’an



[2:62] Those who believe (Muslims), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, any who believe in God and the Last Day, and do righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
[2:109] A number of the People of the Book wish they could turn you (people) back to infidelity after you have believed. From selfish envy, after the truth has become manifest unto them; but forgive and overlook, until God accomplishes His purpose; for God has power over all things.
[3:64] Say: "O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with Him; that we establish not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God." If then they refuse, say you: "Bear witness that we are Muslims (bowing to God's Will)."
[3:65] You People of the Book! Why dispute you about Abraham, when the law and the Gospel were not revealed until after him? Have you no understanding?
[3:75] Among the People of the Book are some who, if entrusted with a hoard of gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless you constantly stop demanding, because, they say, "There is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans)." But they tell a lie against God, and (well) they know it.
[3:110] You are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book had faith, it was best for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors.
[3:199] there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God: they will not sell the Signs of God for a miserable gain! For them is a reward with their Lord, and God is swift in account.
[4:171] O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion; and say not of God aught but the truth. Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, was (no more than) A Messenger of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him; so believe in God and His Messengers. Say not "Trinity"; desist; it will be better for you; for God is One God; glory be to Him; (far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. Enough is God as a Disposer of affairs.
[5:19] O People of the Book! Now has come unto you, making (things) clear unto you, Our Messenger, after the break in (the series of) Our Messengers, lest you should say: "There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no Warner (from evil)"; but now has come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a Warner (from evil). God has power over all things.
[5:59] Say: "O People of the Book! Do you disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in God and the revelation that has come to us and that which came before (us) and (perhaps) that most of you are rebellious and disobedient?"
[5:68] Say: "O People of the Book! You have no ground to stand upon unless you stand fast by the law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord. "It is the revelation that comes to you from your Lord, that increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow you not over (these) people without faith.
[5:77] Say: "O People of the Book! Exceed not in your religion the bounds (of what is proper) trespassing beyond the truth, nor follow the vain desires of people who went wrong in times gone by, who misled many, and strayed (themselves) from the even Way.
[29:46] dispute you not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury); but say, "We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam)."
[5:69] Those who believe, those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christians—any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness—on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
[22:17] those who believe, those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians, Christians, Magians, and Polytheists, God will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for God is witness of all things.
