Islam and Other Divine Religions

Islam deems it compulsory upon its followers to believe in the previous divine Messages and in all the Prophets and Messengers. Muslims must love them all, and respect them.
Allah says: And that was Our [conclusive] argument which We gave Abraham against his people. We raise by degrees whom We will. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing. And We gave 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. And Zechariah and John and Jesus and Elias - and all were of the righteous. And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot - and all of them We preferred over the rest of mankind. And some among their fathers and their descendants and their brothers - and We chose them and We guided them to a Straight Path. (6:83-87)

What the Qur’an says about Moses: 1.

Allah says:
And mention in the Book, Moses. Indeed, he was chosen, and he was a Messenger and a Prophet. (19:51)

Allah says:
O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words [to you]. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful (7:144)

Allah says:
Then We gave Moses the Scripture, making complete [Our favor] upon the one who did good and as a detailed explanation of all things and as guidance and mercy that perhaps in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord they would believe. (6:154)

Allah says:
And We certainly sent Moses with Our signs, [saying], 'Bring out your people from darkness into the light and remind them of the days of Allah.' Indeed in that are signs for every patient and grateful. (14:5)

What the Qur’an says about Jesus and his Mother, Mary, may Allah praise them. 2.

Allah says:
And [mention] when the angels said, ‘O Mary, indeed Allah has chosen you and purified you and chosen you above the women of the worlds.’ (3:42)

Allah says:
To Allah, the case of Jesus is as that of Adam whom He created from the earth and then said, ‘Exist,’ and Adam came into existence. (3:59)

Allah says:
O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, ‘Three’; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is only one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs. (4:171)
