The Bible And The Quran Are Pretty Similar When It Comes To Justice

Can you tell the difference?

Justice is a central theme in many faith traditions. For centuries, religious texts and teachings have given believers moral instruction on how to live, how to relate to each other, and how to live in community.

This is certainly true for the Abrahamic faiths ― Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. While critics may choose to focus on verses in the Bible and the Quran that, when taken out of context, can appear violent and unfair (just scroll down to the comments that will inevitably pop up at the bottom of this article for those), both of these texts are also incredible resources for believers who want to do the work of justice in the world. They both have verses that talk about what it means to forgive those who have wronged you, to be kind to strangers, to strive for peace, and to care for the poor. People have been inspired by these verses to go out into the world to advocate for the marginalized, provide relief to disaster victims, and to fight for equality.

To demonstrate the similarities between these three great religious traditions, HuffPost Religion put together this quiz containing verses about justice from the Quran and the Bible. How hard is it for you to tell them apart?

*Note: We used the New Living Translation for verses from the Hebrew Bible and the Christian scriptures, and the Muhammad Sarwar translation for the Quran.
