قُولُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا بِٱللَّهِ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَىٰٓ إِبْرَٰهِـۧمَ وَإِسْمَـٰعِيلَ وَإِسْحَـٰقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَٱلْأَسْبَاطِ وَمَآ أُوتِىَ مُوسَىٰ وَعِيسَىٰ وَمَآ أُوتِىَ ٱلنَّبِيُّونَ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُمْ وَنَحْنُ لَهُۥ مُسْلِمُونَ

مسلمانو! کہو کہ ”ہم ایمان لائے او راس ہدایت پر جو ہماری طرف نازل ہوئی ہے اور جو ابراھیم ؑ ، اسماعیل ؑ ، اسحاق ؑ ، یعقوب ؑ اور اولاد یعقوب ؑ کی طرف نازل ہوئی تھی اور جو موسیٰ ؑ اور عیسیٰ ؑ ؑ اور دوسرے تمام پیغمبروں کو ان کے رب کی طرف سے دی گئی تھی۔ ہم ان کے درمیان کوئی تفریق نہیں کرتےاور ہم اللہ کے مسلم ہیں

Say, ˹O believers,˺ “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us; and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them. And to Allah we all submit.”. (Quran 2:136)
