"And they (Jews and Christians) say:'None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.' Those are their (vain) desires. Say:'Produce your proof if ye are truthful.' Nay,--whoever submits his whole self to God and is a doer of good,--he will get his reward with his Lord.... The Jews say:'Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say:'The Jew have naught (to stand) upon.' Yet they (profess to) study the same book.... But God will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgement." [2:111-113]<quoted text>
how about a 1600 years old book from the creator with some scientific miracles and accurate measurements for things were unknown at the time of revelation and was proved recently by the modern science ?! would you accept that ?!
Muslims need a course in biblical theology, since Jews give no credence to the NT. By no means do they study the same book.
"Never will the Jews or Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say:'The Guidance of God,--that is the only Guidance.' Were thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldest thou find neither Protector nor Helper against God.'[2:120] "And they say: Be Jews or Christians, then ye will be rightly guided. Say: Nay, but (we follow) the religion of Abraham the upright, and he was not of the idolaters." [2:135]
Muslims are not only failing to note Abraham also holds a position of great importance in Judaism but implying that Judaism and Christianity are attached to idolatry.
"This day have I perfected your religion...and have chosen for you Islam as your religion." [5:3] "Both the Jews and the Christians say:'We are sons of God, and His beloved.' Say: "Why then doth He punish you for your sins?" [5:18]
For Muslims to allege others are being punished for their sins is not worthy of serious consideration in light of conditions in Muslim areas of the world today. They are among those most steeped in agony, ignorance, superstition, and deprivation.
"Take not the Jews and Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other."[5:51]
If this verse does not contradict 54:82, then it displays an insolent ingratitude on the part of Muslims towards Christians. Moreover, for Muslims to assert that Jews and Christians are friends and protectors of one another is to reveal an appalling ignorance of historical events. All too often they have been barely able to stomach one another's presence. To those who reject our Signs and treat them with arrogance, no opening will there be of the gates of heaven, nor will they enter the Garden, until the camel pass through the eye of the needle,"[7:40]
