Stories of Sacrifice

This list is not comprehensive, is quite subjective and is presented only for convenience.  At a time when people of the Jewish faith are divided on Zionism and its effect on the world, and some Christian denominations confuse between the religion who persecuted Jesus Christ (as) and those who believe in him (Muslims), it is incumbent on Muslims to recognize the moderate community among the People of the Book (Jews and Christians)  that the Holy Quran refers to:

And if only they upheld [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to them from their Lord, they would have consumed [provision] from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them are a moderate community, but many of them - evil is that which they do. (The Quran 5:66)
