This book was written so that Muslims may understand the basic concepts in the Torah and how it relates to the Qur’an, and discover many similarities without minimizing differences. It also allows Jews reading this book to understand the Qur’anic point of view regarding the Children of Israel and their efforts and struggles. The Qur’an gives us guidelines that govern the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims.

Noble Character volume three

This books follows in the tradition of the first two volumes and describes how we apply our faith in our character & behavior. The importance of being active and productive and doing our work to the best of our ability is illustrated with verses from the Qur’an and Sunnah. Resolving differences and improving the relationship between people is one of the goals of people of faith. A righteous person does not hate or envy other people, rather he/she is kind, loving and just. Proper understanding of religion and wisdom is a blessing from God. It is our duty to spread useful knowledge. Diversity is willed by Allah so that we can listen to different points of view and learn from one another. Giving sincere advice is part of faith and should be done in a kind caring manner. Muslims have rights over other Muslims.
