THE FOLLOWING are verses from the Quran. To read the whole book, see our recommended versions to save yourself hours of frustration.
4:138 Warn the hypocrites that torturous punishment awaits them. The hypocrites take unbelievers as friends rather than believers. Do they look for honor at their hands? Truly all honor belongs to Allah.
4:144 Believers! Do not take unbelievers as friends over fellow believers. Would you give Allah a clear reason to punish you?
60:1 Oh, you who believe, do not take My enemy and yours for friends by showing them kindness. They reject the truth that has come to you. They drive out the messengers and yourselves because you believe in Allah, your Lord. If you continue to fight for Allah’s cause [jihad] and from a desire to please Me, would you show them kindness in private? I know best what you conceal and what you reveal. Whoever does this among you has already strayed from the right path.
60:13 Oh, Believers, do not enter into friendship with those against whom Allah is angered. They have despaired of the hereafter, even as the unbelievers despair of those who are in graves.
5:57 Oh, you who believe, do not take those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] before you, who have scoffed and jested at your religion, or who are unbelievers for your friends. Fear Allah if you are true believers. When you call to prayer, they make it a mockery and a joke. This is because they are a people who do not understand.
48:29 Mohammad is the messenger of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another but ruthless to the unbelievers.
According to Bill Warner, the Quran has thirteen verses that say a Muslim is not to be a friend with non-Muslims.
