The Qur'an

The Qur'an interprets some stories from the Bible, most often drawing from Rabbinic literature instead of from the Bible itself. Quality study versions of the Qur'an will include a subject index that will allow you to trace mentions of persons, places, or events in your selected verses of the Bible to their corresponding mentions within the Qur'an. To use this index, look up the term you're looking for (e.g. "Angels"), then proceed to the Chapter and verse of the Qur'an mentioned under that term. The index is alphabetical.
