3:3 - 4, Qur'an
[But indeed, God] has revealed to you, the [Qur'an] in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel before, as guidance for the people. And He revealed the Criterion. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of God will have a severe punishment, and God is Almighty, the Owner of Retribution.
[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.
[For] the Jews say "The Christians [have] nothing [true]," and the Christians say, "The Jews [have] nothing [true]," although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus those who do not know [including the Sunni, Shia, and Qur'anist Muslims] speak the same as their words [and say, "The Jews and the Christians have nothing true"]. But God will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.
[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 -
[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 affair amongst themselves into [separate] Scriptures - each faction, in what [Book] it has, rejoicing -
2:135 - 137, Qur'an
[For] they say, "Be Jews or Christians [or Sunni or Shia or Qur'anist Muslims 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 division 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.
This, your Religion, is One Religion
Do Not Divide the Religion
If there Comes a Messenger
The Religion in the Sight of God is Submission
Uphold the Torah, the Gospel
Jews or Christians will have their Reward
They Said, "Write These Things and Hide them"
Satan Threw in Misunderstanding, and they Say, "This is from God"
God Revealed the Qur'an as a Criterion
Follow the Religion of Abraham
God Took Abraham as an Intimate Friend
Enoch's Vision: Everything will Come to Pass in the Order Shown
2:4 - 5, Qur'an
[Those] who believe in what has been revealed to you [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you, and of the Hereafter they are certain - those are upon guidance from their Lord, and it is those who are the successful -
And We bestowed to [Abraham], Isaac and Jacob - all [of them] We guided. And Noah, We guided before; and among his descendants, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the doers of good.
6:86 - 87, Qur'an
And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot - and all [of them] We preferred over the worlds. And [some] among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers - and We chose them and We guided them to a straight path.
[Then] We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for those who fear [God].
3:3 - 4, Qur'an
[And indeed, God] has revealed to you [O Muhammad], the [Qur'an] in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel before, as guidance for the people. And He revealed the Criterion. Indeed, those who disbelieve in the verses of God will have a severe punishment, and God is Almighty, the Owner of Retribution.
[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 angels, His Books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray -
30:31 - 32, Qur'an
[So direct your face toward the religion, inclining toward truth], turning in repentance to Him, and fear Him and establish prayer and do not be of those who associate [others with God] - of those who have divided their religion and become sects, every faction rejoicing [only] in what [Book] it has -
[For] the Jews say "The Christians [have] nothing [true]," and the Christians say, "The Jews [have] nothing [true]," although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus those who do not know [including the Sunni, Shia, and Qur'anist Muslims] speak the same as their words [and say, "The Jews and the Christians have nothing true to stand on"]. But God will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.
And they did not become divided until after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord [postponing the penalty] until a specified time, it would have been concluded between them. And indeed, those who were granted inheritance of the Scripture after them are, concerning [the Qur'an], in suspicious doubt -
[For] when it is said to them, "Believe in what God has revealed," they say, "We believe [only] in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them.
[But] indeed, those who disbelieve in God and His messengers and wish to make a division between God and His messengers and say, "We believe in some and disbelieve in others," and wish to adopt a way in between -
[So] indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects - you are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to God; then He will inform them about what they used to do.
[And thus] the messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in God and His angels and His Books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no division between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination."
[So] say, "O People of the Scripture, do you resent us except [for the fact] that we have believed in God and what was revealed to us and what was revealed before and because most of you are defiantly disobedient?"
[So recall, O People of the Scripture], when God took the covenant of the prophets, [saying], "Whatever I give you of the Scripture and wisdom and then there comes to you a messenger confirming what is with you, you [must] believe in him and support him." [God] said, "Have you acknowledged and taken upon that My commitment?" They said, "We have acknowledged it." He said, "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."
[But] when there came to them a Book from God confirming that which was with them - although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved - but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of God will be upon the disbelievers.
[For] when it is said to them, "Believe in what God has revealed," they say, "We believe [only] in what was revealed to us." And they disbelieve in what came after it, while it is the truth confirming that which is with them. Say, "Then why did you kill the prophets of God before, if you are [indeed] believers?"
Matthew 23:29 - 30, Gospel
[So] woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, 'If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.'"
And [thus] they swore by God their strongest oaths that if a warner came to them, they would be more guided than [any] one of the [previous] nations. But when a warner came to them, it did not increase them except in aversion.
[And so] cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of Jesus, the son of Mary, and of David. That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.
How wretched is that for which they sold themselves - that they would disbelieve in what God has revealed through [their] outrage that God would send down His favor upon whom He wills from among His servants. So they incurred wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers is a humiliating punishment -
Zechariah 7:12, Torah
[For] they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, unless they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts has sent in His Spirit by the former prophets, therefore a great wrath came from the Lord of hosts -
[For] when it is said to them, "Follow what God has revealed," they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?
2:86 - 88, Qur'an
Those are the ones who have bought the life of this world [in exchange] for the Hereafter, so the punishment will not be lightened for them, nor will they be aided. [For] We did certainly give Moses the Book and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Holy Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a group you denied and another group you killed. And they said, "Our hearts are uncircumcised." But, [in fact], God has cursed them for their disbelief, so little is it that they believe.
And [so] if they deny you [O Muhammad] - then already have those before them denied. Their messengers came to them with clear proofs and written ordinances and with the enlightening Scripture.
But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] God?" The disciples said, "We are supporters for God. We have believed in God and testify that we are submitting [to Him]."
1 Corinthians 15:27 - 28, Gospel
For He has submitted all things under His feet. But when He says all things are submitted under [Him, it is] manifest that He is excepted, who submitted all things under Him. And when all things will be submitted to Him, then the Son [of man] himself will also be submitted to Him who submitted all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
[So] strive for God with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. God named you "in submission [to God]" [l-mus'limīna] before [in former Scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So hold fast to God and establish prayer and give charity. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper.
31:22 - 24, Qur'an
[So] whoever submits his face to God while he is a doer of good - then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold. And to God will be the outcome of [all] matters. And whoever has disbelieved - do not let his disbelief grieve you. To Us is their return, and We will inform them of what they did. Indeed, God is Knowing of that within the breasts. We grant them enjoyment for a little; then We will force them to a severe punishment.
2 Chronicles 30:8, Torah
[So] now do not be stiffnecked, as your fathers [were, but] submit yourselves to the Lord, and enter into His sanctuary, which He has sanctified forever, and serve the Lord your God, that the fierceness of His wrath may turn away from you.
3:84 - 85, Qur'an
[So] say, "We have believed in God and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the [twelve] tribes [of Israel], and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no division between any of them, and we are submitting to Him." And whoever desires other than submission [to God] as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the ones in loss -
3:19 - 20, Qur'an
[For] indeed, the religion in the sight of God is submission [to God] [l-is'lāmu]. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of God, then indeed, God is swift in [taking] account. So if they argue with you, say, "I have submitted myself to God, and [so have] those who follow me." And say to those who were given the Scripture and [to] the Gentiles, "Have you submitted yourselves [to God]?" And if they submit [to God], they are rightly guided; but if they turn away - then upon you is only the [duty of] notification. And God is Seeing of [His] servants.
And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them - evil is that which they do -
[For] the example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the verses of God. And God does not guide the wrongdoing people -
5:42 - 44, Qur'an
[For they are] avid listeners to falsehood, devourers of [what is] unlawful. So if they come to you, judge between them or turn away from them. And if you turn away from them - never will they harm you at all. And if you judge, judge between them with justice. Indeed, God loves those who act justly. But how is it that they come to you for judgement while they have the Torah, in which is the judgement of God? Then they turn away, [even] after that; but those are not [in fact] believers. [For] 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 [therein] - then it is those who are the disbelievers.
And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth [as legal retribution], and for wounds is legal retribution. But whoever gives [up his right as] charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoever does not judge by what God has revealed - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for those who fear [God].
[So] say, "O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord." And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
3:113 - 115, Qur'an
[But] they are not [all] the same; among the People of the Scripture is a community standing [in obedience], reciting the verses of God during periods of the night and prostrating [in prayer]. They believe in God and the Last Day, and they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and hasten to good deeds. And those are among the righteous. And whatever good they do - never will it be removed from them. And God is Knowing of those who fear [Him].
And indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in God and what was revealed to you [O Muhammad] and what was revealed to them, [being] humble to God. They do not exchange the verses of God for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, God is swift in account.
2:111 - 112, Qur'an
They say, "None will enter the Garden except one who is a Jew or a Christian." That is [merely] their wishful thinking, say, "Produce your proof, if you should be truthful." Yes, [those among them who submitted to God will enter the Garden, for] whoever submits his face to God while being a doer of good will have his reward with his Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve -
[So] indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews or Sabeans or Christians - those [among them] who believed in God and the Last Day and did righteousness - no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
[For] God had already taken a covenant from the Children of Israel, and We delegated from among them twelve leaders. And God said, "I am with you. If you establish prayer and give charity and believe in My messengers and support them and loan God a goodly loan, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But whoever of you disbelieves after that has certainly strayed from the right way."
45:17 - 18, Qur'an
And [thus] We [certainly] gave them clear proofs of the matter [of religion]. And they did not differ except after knowledge had come to them - out of jealous animosity between themselves. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ. Then We put you on an ordained way concerning the matter [of religion]; so follow it and do not follow the inclinations of those who do not know -
[For] indeed, those who deny Our verses and are arrogant toward them - the gates of Heaven will not be opened for them, nor will they enter the Garden until a camel enters into the eye of a needle. And thus do We recompense the criminals.
[For] indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans - those [among them] who believed in God and the Last Day and did righteousness - will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve -
[For] indeed, those who have said, "Our Lord is God" and then remained on a right course - the angels will descend upon them, [saying], "Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good news of the Garden, which you were promised -"
[And] they will say, "Praise to God, who has fulfilled for us His promise and made us [meek] inherit the earth [so] we may settle in the Garden wherever we will." And excellent is the reward of [righteous] workers -
2 Chronicles 9:29, Torah
[For] the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, [are] they not written in the Book of Nathan the prophet, and in the Prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the Visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam, the son of Nebat?
Revelation 22:19, Gospel
[Whereby] if any man will take away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this Book."
[2 Ezra 12:36 - 38], Torah
[For they said,] "You only have been meet to know this secret of the Highest. Therefore write all these things that you have seen in a Book, and hide them; and teach them to the wise of the people, whose hearts you know may comprehend and keep these secrets."
2:159 - 160, Qur'an
[But] indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture - those are cursed by God and cursed by those who curse, except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those - I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
[So] O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much. There has come to you from God a light and a clear Book.
2:41 - 42, Qur'an
[So] believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and do not be the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My verses for a small price, and fear [only] Me. And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it].
Jeremiah 23:31 - 32, Torah
[God said,] "Behold, I [am] against the prophets, who use their tongues and say, 'He says.' Behold, I [am] against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I did not send them, nor command them, therefore they will not profit this people at all," the Lord says.
Ezekiel 13:6 - 7, Torah
[Rather,] they have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, "The Lord says," and the Lord has not sent them, and they have made [others] hope that they would confirm the word. Have you not seen a vain vision, and have you not spoken a lying divination, whereas you say, "The Lord says [it];" although I have not spoken?
[So] indeed, there is among them a group who alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "This is from God," but it is not from God. And they speak untruth about God while they know -
[Book of Enoch 98:15], Torah
[So] woe to you who write lying words, and the words of the impious, for they write their lies so that men may hear and continue their folly. And they will not have peace but will die a sudden death.
So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from God," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn -
3:70 - 71, Qur'an
[So] O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of God while you witness [to their truth]? [And] O People of the Scripture, why do you confuse the truth with falsehood?
22:52 - 54, Qur'an
[For] We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he had a desire [regarding a revelation], Satan threw into his desire [some misunderstanding]. But God abolishes that which Satan throws in; then God makes precise His verses. And God is Knowing and Wise. [That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension. And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts become humble to it. And indeed is God the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path.
[So] judge between them by what God has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what God has revealed to you. And if they turn away - then know that God only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient -
[And recall when Jesus said,] "[I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear God and obey me -
[Gospel of Barnabas 189:3], Gospel
[Indeed,] as God lives, in whose presence my soul stands, if the Book of Moses with the Book of our father David had not been corrupted by the human traditions of false Pharisees and doctors, God would not have given His word to me. And why do I speak of the Book of Moses and the Book of David? They have corrupted every prophecy, insomuch that today a thing is not sought because God has commanded it, but men look whether the doctors say it, and the Pharisees observe it, as though God were in error, and men could not err."
[Gospel of Barnabas 124:1], Gospel
[Then] Jesus [spoke] in a parable, "A man goes to fish with a net, and therein he catches many fish, but those that are bad, he throws away. A man went forth to sow, but only the grain that falls on good ground bears seed. Even so should you do; listening to all and receiving only the truth, seeing that the truth alone bears fruit to eternal life." Then Andrew answered, "Now how will the truth be known?"
[Gospel of Barnabas 124:2], Gospel
Jesus answered, "Everything that conforms to the Book of Moses, that you receive as true; seeing that God is one, the truth is one; from where it follows that the doctrine is one and the meaning of the doctrine is one; and therefore the faith is one. Truly I say to you that if the truth had not been erased from the Book of Moses, God would not have given to David our father the second. And if the Book of David had not been contaminated, God would not have committed the Gospel to me; seeing that the Lord our God is unchangeable, and has spoken but one message to all men. Therefore, when the messenger of God will come, he will come to cleanse away all wherewith the ungodly have contaminated my Book."
[So] O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our messenger to make clear to you [the religion] after a period [of suspension] of messengers, lest you say, "There did not come to us any bringer of good news or a warner." But there has come to you a bringer of good news and a warner. And God is over all things Powerful -
[For] We have revealed to you [O Muhammad], the [Qur'an] in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a Criterion over it. So judge between them by what God has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had God willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To God is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.
Do not argue with the People of the Scripture except by what is best, except for those who commit injustice among them, and say, "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and [that which was] revealed to you. And our God and your God is one; and we are in submission to Him."
Or do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the [twelve] tribes [of Israel] were Jews or Christians? Say, "Are you more knowing or is God?" And who is more unjust than one who conceals a testimony he has from God? And God is not unaware of what you do -
3:66 - 67, Qur'an
[For] here you are - those who have argued about that of which you have [some] knowledge, but why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge? And God knows, while you do not know. Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, submitting [to God]. And he was not of the polytheists -
Genesis 18:17 - 18, Torah
And [thus] the Lord said, "Should I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; seeing that Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed in him?"
16:120 - 123, Qur'an
[So] indeed, Abraham was a nation, devoutly obedient to God, inclining toward truth, and he was not of those who associate others [with God]. [He was] grateful for His favors. God chose him and guided him to a straight path. And We gave him good in this world, and indeed, in the Hereafter he will be among the righteous. Then We revealed to you, to follow the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of those who associate others [with God].
[Book of Jubilees 20:9 - 11], Torah
[And so] I implore you, my sons, love the God of heaven, and cleave to all His commandments. And do not walk after their idols, and after their uncleannesses, and do not make for yourselves molten or graven gods; for they are vanity, and there is no spirit in them; for they are work of [men's] hands, and all who trust in them, trust in nothing. Do not serve them, nor prostrate to them, but prostrate to the Most High God, and serve Him continually; and hope for His Countenance always."
Genesis 18:19, Torah
[And so remember that God said,] "I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they will keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgement; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which He has spoken of him."
Hebrews 6:13 - 14, Gospel
[And so] when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He swore by Himself, saying, "Surely blessing, I will bless you, and multiplying, I will multiply you.
2:136 - 137, Qur'an
[So] 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 division 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.
42:15 - 16, Qur'an
So to that [religion of God] invite, and remain on a right course as you are commanded and do not follow their inclinations but say, "I have believed in what God has revealed of the Book, and I have been commanded to do justice among you. God is our Lord and your Lord. For us are our deeds, and for you your deeds. There is no [need for] argument between us and you. God will bring us together, and to Him is the [final] destination." And those who argue concerning God after he has been responded to - their argument is invalid with their Lord, and upon them is [His] wrath, and for them is a severe punishment -
*Genesis 15:5 - 6, Torah
[For remember when God] brought [Abraham] forth abroad, and said, "Look now toward the heavens, and tell the stars, if you are able to number them, and He said to him, "So will your seed be." And [Abraham] believed in the Lord; and He counted it to him for righteousness.
[So] who is better in religion than one who submits himself to God while being a doer of good and follows the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth? And God took Abraham as an intimate friend.
6:161 - 163, Qur'an
[So] say, "Indeed, my Lord has guided me to a straight path - a correct religion - the way of Abraham, inclining toward truth. And he was not among those who associated [others with God]." Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for God, Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first [among you] of those in submission [to God]."
[Book of Enoch 90:40 - 41], Torah
[Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah said,] "This is the vision which I saw while I was asleep, and I woke up, blessed the Lord of righteousness, and ascribed glory to Him. But after this I wept bitterly and my tears did not stop until I could not endure it. When I looked, they ran down, because of what I saw, for everything will come to pass and be fulfilled, and all the deeds of men, in their order, were shown to me."
[Book of Enoch 87:3 - 4], Torah
[Whereby,] those three, who came out last, took hold of me by my hand and raised me from the generations of the earth, and lifted me up onto a high place, and showed me a tower high above the earth, and all the hills were lower. And one said to me, "Remain here until you have seen everything which is coming upon these elephants, and camels, and asses, and upon the stars, and upon all the bulls."
[Book of Enoch 85:2 - 3], Torah
[So] Enoch raised his voice and said to his son Methuselah, "To you I speak, my son. Hear my words, and incline your ear to the dream vision of your father. Before I took your mother, Edna, I saw a vision on my bed, and behold, a bull came out of the earth [Adam], and that bull was white. And, after it, a heifer came out [Eve], and with the heifer came two bullocks, and one of them was black [Cain] and the other red [Abel].
[Book of Enoch 89:1 - 3], Torah
[And one, Noah] was born a bull, but became a man, and built for himself a large vessel, and dwelt on it, and three bulls went with him in that vessel, and they were covered over. And, again, I raised my eyes to heaven and saw a high roof with seven water channels on it, and those channels discharged much water into an enclosure. And I looked again, and behold, springs opened on the floor of that large enclosure, and water began to bubble up, and to rise above the floor. And I looked at that enclosure until its whole floor was covered by water.
[Book of Enoch 89:5 - 6], Torah
And all the bulls of that enclosure were gathered together, until I saw how they sank, and were swallowed up, and destroyed, in that water. And that vessel floated on the water, but all the bulls, elephants, camels, and asses sank to the bottom, together with all the animals, so that I could not see them. And they were unable to get out, but were destroyed, and sank into the depths.
[Book of Enoch 89:7 - 8], Torah
And, again, I looked at that vision until those water channels were removed from that high roof, and the chasms of the earth were made level, and other abysses were opened. And the water began to run down into them, until the earth became visible, and that vessel settled on the earth [Mount Judiyy] and the darkness departed, and light appeared.
[Book of Enoch 89:10], Torah
And they began to beget wild animals and birds, so that there arose from them every kind of species, lions, tigers, wolves, dogs, hyenas, wildboars, foxes, badgers, pigs, falcons, vultures, kites, eagles, and ravens. But amongst them was born a white bull [Abraham].
[Book of Enoch 89:11 - 12] Torah
And they began to bite one another but that white bull [Abraham], which was born amongst them, begat a wild ass [Ishmael] and a white bull [Isaac] with it, and the wild asses increased. But that bull [Isaac], which was born from it, begat a black wild boar [Esau] and a white sheep [Jacob], and that wild-boar begat many boars and that sheep [Jacob] begat twelve sheep [Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher].
[Book of Enoch 89:13], Torah
And when those twelve sheep [the Children of Israel] had grown, they handed one of their number [Joseph] over to the asses, and those in turn, handed that sheep [Joseph] over to the wolves [the Egyptians]; and that sheep grew up amongst the wolves.
[Book of Enoch 89:15], Torah
And the wolves [the Egyptians] began to make them afraid, and they oppressed them [the Children of Israel] until they made away with their young, and then they threw their young into a river with much water; but those sheep began to cry out because of their young, and to complain to their Lord.
[Book of Enoch 89:16 - 17], Torah
But a sheep [Moses], which had been saved from the wolves [the Egyptians], fled and escaped to the wild asses. And I saw the sheep moaning and crying out, and petitioning the Lord with all their power, until that Lord of the sheep came down at the call of the sheep, from a high room, and came to them, and looked at them. And He called that sheep [Moses], which had fled from the wolves, and spoke to it about the wolves, that it should warn them that they should not touch the sheep [the Children of Israel].
[Book of Enoch 89:18], Torah
And the sheep [Moses] went to the wolves [the Egyptians], in accordance with the word of the Lord, and another sheep [Aaron] met that sheep and went with it. And the two of them together, entered the assembly of those wolves, spoke to them, and warned them that from then on, they should not touch those sheep [the Children of Israel].
[Book of Enoch 89:19 - 20], Torah
And after this, I saw the wolves [the Egyptians], how they acted even more harshly towards the sheep [the Children of Israel], with all their power, and the sheep called out. And their Lord came to the sheep and began to beat those wolves; and the wolves began to moan, but the sheep became silent and from then on they did not cry out.
[Book of Enoch 89:21 - 22], Torah
And I looked at the sheep [the Children of Israel] until they escaped from the wolves [the Egyptians]; but the eyes of the wolves were blinded, and those wolves went out in pursuit of the sheep with all their forces. And the Lord of the sheep went with them, as He led them, and all His sheep followed Him; and His Face was glorious, and His appearance terrible and magnificent.
[Book of Enoch 89:23 - 24], Torah
But the wolves [the Egyptians] began to pursue those sheep [the Children of Israel] until they met them by a stretch of water [the Red Sea]. And that stretch of water was divided, and the water stood on one side, and on the other, before them. And their Lord as He led them, stood between them and the wolves.
[Book of Enoch 89:25 - 27], Torah
And while those wolves [the Egyptians] had not yet seen the sheep [the Children of Israel], they went into the middle of that stretch of water [the Red Sea]; but the wolves pursued the sheep, and those wolves ran after them into that stretch of water. But when they saw the Lord of the sheep, they turned to flee in front of Him; but that stretch of water flowed together again, and suddenly resumed its natural form, and the water swelled up, and rose until it covered those wolves. And I looked until all the wolves that had pursued those sheep were destroyed and drowned.
[Book of Enoch 89:28 - 29], Torah
But the sheep [the Children of Israel] escaped that water, and went to a desert [the wilderness], where there was neither water, nor grass. And they began to open their eyes and see, and I saw the Lord of the sheep pasturing them, and giving them water and grass [manna and quails], and that sheep [Moses] going and leading them. And that sheep went up to the summit of a high rock [Mount Sinai] and the Lord of the sheep sent it to them.
[Book of Enoch 89:32 - 33], Torah
And that sheep [Moses], which led them, again went up to the summit of that rock [Mount Sinai]; and the sheep began to be blinded, and go astray from the path which had been shown to them, but that sheep did not know. And the Lord of the sheep was extremely angry with them, and that sheep knew, and went down from the summit of the rock, and came to the sheep, and found the majority of them, with their eyes blinded, and going astray from His path [by taking a molten calf as a god].
[Book of Enoch 89:40 - 41], Torah
And I looked until the sheep came to a good place and a pleasant and glorious land, and I looked until those sheep were satisfied. And that house was in the middle of them in that green and pleasant land. And sometimes their eyes were opened, and sometimes blinded, until another sheep rose up [Samuel], led them, and brought them all back. And their eyes were opened.
[Book of Enoch 89:42 - 43], Torah
And the dogs, and the foxes, and the wild boars, began to devour those sheep until the Lord of the sheep raised up a ram [Saul] from among them, which led them. And that ram [Saul] began to butt those dogs, foxes, and wild boars, on one side and on the other until it had destroyed them all.
[Book of Enoch 89:45 - 46], Torah

And I saw those sheep again, how they went astray [the lost sheep of the House of Israel], and walked in many ways, and left that house of theirs; and the Lord of the sheep called some of the sheep, and sent them to the sheep, but the sheep began to kill them.
[Book of Enoch 89:52 - 53], Torah
But one of them [Jesus] was saved, and was not killed, and it sprang away and cried out against the sheep.

[Book of Enoch 89:54], Torah
And after this, I saw how when they left the house of the Lord of the sheep, and His tower, they went astray in everything, and their eyes were blinded.

[Book of Enoch 104:10 - 105:1], Torah
And now I know this mystery; that many sinners will alter and distort the words of truth, and speak evil words, and lie, and concoct great fabrications, and write books in their own words. But when they write my words exactly in their languages, and do not alter or omit anything from my words, but write everything exactly, everything that I testified about before; then I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and wise and will be a source of joy and truth and much wisdom. And books will be given to them, and they will believe in them and rejoice over them; and all the righteous who have learned from them all the ways of truth will be glad. And in those days, says the Lord, they shall call and testify to the sons of the earth about the wisdom in them. Show it to them for you are their leaders and the rewards will be over all the earth.
