يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ مِنْ ذَكَرٍ وَأُنْثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ

O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqun (pious - see V. 2:2). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.

Quote from the Holy Qur'an: Al-Hujuraat (49:13)

II Samuel 8:4 "And David took from him a thousand chariots and seven hundred horsemen and twenty thousand footmen ..."
I Chronicles 18:4 "And David took from him a thousand chariots and seven thousand horsemen and twenty thousand footmen..."
Q. Seven hundred or seven thousand?

A common misconception about the Holy Qur’an is that it is an ancient, outdated book, irrelevant to the functioning of the modern world. Nothing can be further from the truth! Unlike the Bible, the Holy Qur’an has never been revised for over 1400 years, since it was revealed, and its teachings are still completely relevant.
