“And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better
[than mere disputation], unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong [and
injury]: but say, "We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in
that which came down to you; Our Allah and your Allah is one; and it is to Him
we bow [in Islam].”
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Meaning of the Holy Qur'an

“Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians - any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, القرآن الكريم

“Helpless creatures ought, on the contrary, to be treated as sacred trusts, whether they are orphans, or dependants, or creatures of any kind unable to assert themselves.”
Abdullah Yusuf Ali
