A verse of the Holy Quran which warns Muslims about making friends with Jews and Christians was read out in a TV programme called the Big Question, in an attempt we assume to stoke up anti Islamic feelings.
The Holy Quran warns Muslims about making friends with Christians and Jews rather than Muslims.
This is not to be taken at an individual level but at national and political level. We have seen how Muslims were used by the Christians in the two World Wars and then, immediately after the Wars, Christian countries went on to make decisions which hurt the Muslims. Throughout history Jews have lived in peace in Islamic countries. They even migrated to these countries when persecuted in Christian countries. Allah wants us to depend on ourselves and not on other communities. This is the real spirit of these verses.
We discuss Chapter 5 Verse 51 in detail in the video below.
