“Indeed, We have bestowed the Book (Torah) on Moses. So don’t you (Prophet Muhammad) hesitate to accept it (the Qur’an) and We have made the Book (Torah) a guide for the Children of Israel. We have made among them leaders who guide by Our command as long as they are patient. They always believe in Our verses.” (QS 32: 23-24)
