My name is Engin AKSU. I live in the city Kütahya -Turkey. I work as a Turkish teacher in a primary school. I also research Quran (HolyBook of Islam) and believe the brotherhood of people who believes "only one God". In Quran Part:22 (Hac- Pilgrimage sentence: 40) Allah says"(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, "Our Lord is Allah". Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will)." And Allah says ( Part:2 (Bakara) ,sentence:62) "Those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." Those are some examples from Quran.
