The divine books God sent down to guide His servants describe an ideal society full of love, peace, compassion and justice. In the Qur'an, for example, God describes the Torah revealed to the Jews as a guide:

We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light, and the prophets who had submitted themselves gave judgment by it for the Jews--as did their scholars and their rabbis–-by what they had been allowed to preserve of God's Book to which they were witnesses... (Qur'an, 5:44)

Today, we can find part of the Torah's divine commandments in the Old Testament, directing people to avoid evil, tyranny, theft, corruption, falsehood and cruelty; and to display proper morality. In fact, God states in the Qur'an that:

He [God] said, "Moses, I have chosen you over all mankind for My Message and My Word. Take what I have given you and be among the thankful." We wrote about everything for him on the Tablets as an admonition and making all things clear. "Seize hold of it vigorously and command your people to adopt the best in it. I will show you the home of the deviators!" (Qur'an, 7:144-145)
