BIBLICAL VERSES THAT
AGREE WITH THE QUR'AN

 


TO SAY "GOD WILLING"

Never say about anything: "I am doing that tomorrow" without adding "if God wills." Remember your Lord when you forget, and say: "Hopefully my Lord will guide me to something closer to right guidance than this." (Qur'an, 18:23-24)

New Testament

Now listen, you who say: "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say: "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." (James 4:13-15)


TO EXCHANGE GREETINGS

... And when you enter houses, greet one another with a greeting from God, blessed and good.... (Qur'an, 24:61)

New Testament

As you enter the home, give it your greeting. (Matthew 10:12)


NOT TO FEAR AND NOT TO DESPAIR

[Prophets are] those who conveyed God's Message and fear Him, fearing no one except God. God suffices as a Reckoner. (Qur'an, 33:39)

They [Moses and Aaron] said: "Our Lord, we are afraid that he [Pharaoh] might persecute us or overstep the bounds." He said: "Fear not. I will be with you, All-Hearing and All-Seeing." (Qur'an, 20:45-46)

[Believers are] those to whom people said: "The people have gathered against you, so fear them." But that merely increased their faith and they said: "God is enough for us and the Best of Guardians." So they returned with blessings and bounty from God, and no evil touched them. They pursued the pleasure of God. God's favor is indeed immense. That was only Satan who intimidated his adherents. But do not fear them-fear Me if you are believers. (Qur'an, 3:173-75)

New Testament

But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened." (1 Peter 3:14)

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with Us than with him. (2 Chronicles 32:7)


VIRTUE AND ONE'S FEAR AND AWE OF GOD

O Children of Adam! We have sent down clothing to you to conceal your private parts, and fine apparel, but the garment of heedfulness-that is best! That is one of God's Signs, so that hopefully you will pay heed. (Qur'an, 7:26)

New Testament

[O Women!] Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. (1 Peter 3:3-4)

Old Testament

... Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)

Old Testament

Do not steal. Do not lie. Do not deceive one another... (Leviticus 19:11)

Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd. (Exodus 23:1-2)


SOME NATIONS' ENVYING THE PROPHET

"Has the Reminder been sent down to him out of all of us?" They are in doubt about My Reminder. They have yet to taste My punishment. (Qur'an, 38:8)

Their Prophet said to them: "God has appointed Saul to be your king." They said: "How can he have kingship over us when we have much more right to kingship than he does?

God is All-Encompassing, All-Knowing." (Qur'an, 2:247)

They say, "Why was this Qur'an not sent down to one of the great men of the two cities?" (Qur'an, 43:31)

When the Sabbath came, he [Jesus] began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. "Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does miracles! Is this not the carpenter? Is this not Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Are his sisters not here with us?" And they took offense at him. (Mark 6:2-3)


SOME NATIONS' DEMANDING MIRACLES

Those who do not believe say [to Mohammed]: "If only a Sign could be sent down to him from his Lord!" You are only a warner. Every people has a guide. (Qur'an, 13:7)

They say: "We will not believe you until you make a spring gush out from the ground for us; or have a garden of dates and grapes that you make rivers come pouring through; or make the sky, as you claim, fall down on us in lumps; or bring God and the angels here as a guarantee; or possess a house built out of gleaming gold; or ascend up into Heaven-and even then we will not believe in your ascent unless you bring us down a book to read!" Say: "Glory be to my Lord! Am I anything but a human messenger?" (Qur'an, 17:90-93)

New Testament

"Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders," Jesus told him, "you will never believe." (John 4:48)

So they asked him: "What miraculous sign, then, will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?" (John 6:30)


PROPHETS ACCUSED OF BEING POSSESSED

Equally, no Messenger came to those before them without their saying: "A magician or a madman!" Did they bequeath this to each other? Indeed, they are an unbridled people. (Qur'an, 51:52-53)

New Testament

When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him [Jesus], for they said: "He is out of his mind." And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said: "He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out demons." (Mark 3:21-22)


PROPHETS DO NOT SPEAK FROM WHIM

Your companion is not misguided or misled; nor does he speak from whim. It is nothing but Revelation revealed, taught him by One immensely strong. (Qur'an, 53:2-5)

And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21)

Old Testament

I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. (Deuteronomy 18:18)


THE IMPERMANENCE OF THIS LIFE

The life of this world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The abode of the Hereafter-that is truly Life, if they only knew. (Qur'an, 29:64)

And the Hour is coming without any doubt, and God will raise up all those in the graves. (Qur'an, 22:7)

When Earth is flattened out and disgorges what is inside it and empties out, hearkening to its Lord as it is bound to do! O Man! You are toiling laboriously toward your Lord, but meet Him you will! As for him who is given his Book in his right hand, he will be given an easy reckoning and return to his family joyfully. But as for him who is given his Book behind his back, he will cry out for destruction but will be roasted in a Searing Blaze. (Qur'an, 84:3-12)

The Trumpet will be blown, and those in the heavens and those in the ground will all lose consciousness, except those whom God wills. Then it will be blown a second time, and at once they will be standing upright, looking on. And Earth will shine with the Pure Light of its Lord, the Book will be put in place.

He knows best what they are doing. (Qur'an, 39:68-70)

Fear a Day when you will be returned to God. Then every self will be paid in full for what it earned. They will not be wronged. (Qur'an, 2:281)

New Testament

God will give to each person according to what he has done. To those who, by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, He will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. (Romans 2:6-8)

Old Testament

The day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head. (Obadiah 1:15)

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)


PERSECUTIONS DONE TO MESSENGERS AND BELIEVERS

We sent Messengers before you among the disparate groups of previous peoples. No Messenger came to them without their mocking him. (Qur'an, 15:10-11)

The best of all rewards is with God." (Qur'an, 3:195)
