And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the ... (Sura 5:48)

And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee. For each We have appointed a divine law and a traced-out way. Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try you by that which He hath given you (He hath made you as ye are). So vie one with another in good works. Unto Allah ye will all return, and He will then inform you of that wherein ye differ.

Summary
Article summary: 

The Qur’ān is the only revealed divine book that acknowledges religious diversity. In Chapter 2, The Cow, Verse 62, God says: “Lo! those who believe ( in that which is revealed unto you, Muhammad), and those who are Jews, and Christians, and Sabaeans- whoever believes in Allāh and the Last Day and does right – surely their reward is with their Lord, and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.”

Summary
Article summary: 

Accusing Muslims of rejecting Christianity and Judaism because of their belief in Islam is an absurdity. The Qur’an and the Sunna acknowledges both religions through their belief in Moses and Jesus Christ. It is true that there are some Muslims who are stubborn regarding the acceptance of the other. However, such Muslims are against the Qur’an before being against the other.

8. There is no compulsion in religion

Summary
Article summary: 

The author believes that faith cannot be the product of compulsion. It is unimaginable that any heavenly religion, Judaism, Christianity or Islam, can be founded on compulsion to join it. These three religions accepted and approved the religions that came before them: Judaism tells stories of the prophets before Moses. The Old Testament pays due respect to earlier prophets. The Gospels of Christianity do the same thing. They quote Christ saying, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law." By declaring such acceptance, a religion denies being the only true religion, let alone the idea of using force to increase its’ following.

Summary
Article summary: 

Shebl says the series of "Awan Al-Ward" led to discussions that Egyptians were in dire need of. Before the disaster of 1967 [in reference to the defeat of the six day war], there were no discussions about the relationship between Muslims and Christians. People were dealing with their companions on the basis of personal characteristics until what is called ’religious awareness’ came to surface in the 1970s. After that religion played a role in the relationship between people. "Awan Al-Ward" courageously addressed this new unhealthy climate.
