PERSECUTIONS DONE TO MESSENGERS AND BELIEVERS

We sent Messengers before you among the disparate groups of previous peoples. No Messenger came to them without their mocking him. (Qur'an, 15:10-11)

And if you deny it, nations before you also denied the truth. The Messenger is only responsible for clear transmission. (Qur'an, 29:18)

When those who do not believe were plotting against you to imprison you or to kill you or to expel you: they planned and God planned, but God is the Best of Planners. (Qur'an, 8:30)

When the believers saw the Confederates they said: "This is what God and His Messenger promised us. God and His Messenger told us the truth." It only increased them in faith and in submission. (Qur'an, 33:22)

New Testament

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in Heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:10-12)

Be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local councils and flog you in their synagogues. On My account, you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. (Matthew 10:17-18)

... They called the Apostles in and had them flogged. Then they ordered them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. The Apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the name [of Jesus]. Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. (Acts 5:40-42)

Old Testament

"Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more." (Job 8:22)


THE REWARD OF THOSE WHO MIGRATE FOR GOD'S SAKE

As for those who migrate for God's sake after being wronged, We shall give them good lodging in this world, and the reward of the Hereafter is greater still, if they only knew. (Qur'an, 16:41)

Those who believe and have migrated and striven in the Way of God, and those who have given refuge and help, they are the true believers. They will have forgiveness and generous provision. (Qur'an, 8:74)

Their Lord responds to them: "I will not let the deeds of any doer among you go to waste, male or female-you are both the same in that respect. Those who migrated and were driven from their homes, and suffered harm in My Way and fought and were killed, I will erase their bad actions from them and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing under them, as a reward from God. The best of all rewards is with God." (Qur'an, 3:195)

New Testament

"I tell you the truth," Jesus replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the Gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields-and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life. (Mark 10:29-30)

All this is evidence that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well... (2 Thessalonians 1:5-7)


BELIEVERS ARE FEW IN NUMBER

But most people, for all your eagerness, are not believers. (Qur'an, 12:103)

Alif Lam Mim Ra. Those are the Signs of the Book. And what has been sent down to you from your Lord is the Truth. But most people do not believe. (Qur'an, 13:1)

If you obeyed most of those on Earth, they would misguide you from God's Way. They follow nothing but conjecture. They are only guessing. (Qur'an, 6:116)

New Testament

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)


GOD CHOOSES BELIEVERS

Say: "Praise be to God and peace be upon His servants, whom He has chosen." Is God better, or what you associate with Him? (Qur'an, 27:59)

New Testament

But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. (2 Thessalonians 2:13)

Old Testament

... Your God has chosen them to minister and to pronounce blessings in the name of the Lord… (Deuteronomy 21:5)


GOD'S GIFT TO BELIEVERS

… Do not say: "You are not a believer" to someone who greets you as a Muslim, simply out of desire for the goods of this world. With God there is booty in abundance. That is the way you were before, but God has been kind to you... (Qur'an, 4:94)

New Testament

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Old Testament

When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in Latter Days you will return to the Lord your God and obey Him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not abandon or destroy you, or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which He confirmed to them by oath. (Deuteronomy 4:30-31)
