All Believers in Allah are one Family

1 min read

Quran 3: 33-34:

God did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of Imran above all people. Offspring one of the other: And God heareth and knoweth all things.

The following excerpt is taken from “The Holy Quran: Text, Translation, and Commentary” by Abdullah Yusuf Ali pg. 131 note 374:

“The Prophets in the Jewish-Christian-Muslim Dispensation form one family literally. But the argument is wider. All men of God form spiritually one family. If you love and obey God, love and obey His Messenger who is actually present with you (in the flesh or in his teaching), Your love, obedience and discipline will be the test of your Faith.”
