** Apostasy is punishable by death in the Qur'an, specifically if the apostate remains among other Muslims. Muslims who wish to leave Islam can only do so if they also leave their country and [[StartingANewLife Start A New Life]] elsewhere. Not a case of YouCantGoHomeAgain since it's still possible to embrace Islam again if you sincerely wish to do so.

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: The angels of Literature/TheQuran are ''definitely'' of the EldritchAbomination variety. They are described as having anywhere from two wings to thousands, and [[TheNeedless they do not eat or drink]]. They are also ''huge.'' It would take 700 years to go the distance between the ear-lobes and shoulders of the angel who carries Allah's throne, and the ArchangelGabriel has 600 wings which span from the Eastern to the Western horizon. They're invisible to humans but animals can see them. If they do show up to humans (mostly towards [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prophets_and_messengers_in_Islam Prophets and Messengers]], they tend to assume [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith human form]].\\

* ArchangelMichael: Mentioned once, as part of the host who will be the enemy of the people who rejected God. Its other exploits are explored in the hadiths and other traditions.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Go there and back again, actually. Muhammad was called to an audience with Allah, received the order for ''salah'' (daily prayers, said five times a day), and then returned to the world so he could bring the order to the Muslims. On his way he met prophets of ancient times such as Musa. Musa actually told Muhammad to renegotiate the order, because ''50 times a day'' would be too difficult.
** Reminiscent of an old Jewish joke, in which Moses tells his people "There's good news and bad news. The good news is that I convinced Him to drop seven of the Seventeen Commandments. The bad news is that He wouldn't budge on the one about adultery."
* BadassArmy: {{Defied}}! The Army of Muslims attributed their victories (and defeats) in war to the will of Allah, never due to their own might. [[spoiler:The one time they believed that victory is assured, archers on a strategic hill went for loot instead of manning their post, resulting in the enemy countering by attacking the hill and killing the few archers left, and reversing the course of the battle, resulting in the prophet being seriously injured.]]

* BuryYourGays: Unlike the Bible, homosexuality is clearly stated as the reason why Sodom was doomed. Lesbianism, group sex of any kind and bisexuality from any gender are all equally condemned as very serious sins.
** This actually varies depending on interpretation. Sodom was doomed because of total depravity rather than the sole reason being homosexuality, and bisexuality and lesbianism are not touched upon.

* ContinuityNod: So, so many, toward Injil[[note]][[Literature/TheFourGospels The Gospels]]--the theory being either (1) that the ''Injil'' was a literal book sent to Jesus that was copied and mistranscribed by later Christians as the Gospels, or (2) taking elements of the Christian view, that Jesus ''himself'' was the Word/Book, whose words and deeds were copied and later mistranscribed as the Gospels.[[/note]] and Taurat[[note]][[Literature/TheBible The Torah]][[/note]]. In fact, it's stated in the Qur'an itself that one of its purposes is to give ContinuityNod to the aforementioned books, so as to give good news to the faithfuls.

to:

** The "tolerance with non-Muslims" part is also given credence by the fact that an uncle of the Prophet Muhammad itself, Abu Talib, was a devout Christian and chose not to convert to Islam, despite supporting his nephew's sermons. He is never demonized by anyone for being this, either, even to the most ardent and zealous believers.

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Qur'an teaches its believers not to fear darkness or night. In fact, people should be grateful when darkness came, because that means you can finally put your work at the desk and either dedicatedly pray to God, who will accept prayers at nighttime more intently, or, if you are too tired, get some sleep. See TheSacredDarkness below.



* DecisiveBattle: Several, leading to the re-capture of Mecca by the Muslim army. Entering Makkah itself was an anti-climax, though.
* DomesticAbuse: A man is allowed to beat his disobedient wife. (IV, 38)

(IV, 38)38) However, it is ''forbidden'' for men to act like thugs and deal a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on his wife whenever he doesn't like her way of thinking. Punishment must be given sparsely, like gently hitting her with a stick three times for example, as Prophet Ayub[[note]]Job[[/note]] did to his wife when [[EtTuBrute she left him]]. Unfortunately, like the law about polygamy mentioned below, this rule is frequently abused (pun intended) by the people, [[AllAbusersAreMale mostly by men]].

[[EtTuBrute Even his wife and one of his sons abandoned him for it]]. Because the flood was not universal, however, Nuh's family (plus some outsiders who accepted his message) didn't need to procreate among themselves, thank you very much.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Lot already got some in the New Testament compared to the Old, being described as a well meaning victim of circumstance but he gets even more heroic treatment here by vocally denouncing the ways of Sodom and Gomorrah.
** In general, prophets are more virtuous than they are in the Bible. David's adultery isn't mentioned nor is Noah getting drunk. It explicitly states that Solomon did not worship other gods and Aaron did not make the Golden Calf.

* LawOfInverseFertility: Ibrahim and his wife lived through so many years together without any heir, so the latter decided to gave her husband her handmaiden. A single night with the handmaiden, and a son: Ismail, was born. Ibrahim's promised son with his wife (Ishaq) wouldn't be realized until Ismail was already an adult.
* LikesOlderWomen: Muhammad and Khadija married despite their 15-year-old age difference. Guess which one is older?

* LightIsNotGood: On the other hand, Satan is a djinn, a being made up of smokeless fire. Fire does emit light, too, by the way. While Djinns can be good or bad, Satan is ''always'' bad.



* MagicIsEvil: Magic exists, and it's invariably a bad thing. The Qur'an also [[{{Jossed}} explicitly states]] that Prophet Sulaiman[[labelnote:*]]King Solomon[[/labelnote]] ''did not'' use magic: he indeed had djinn servants, but his mastery over them was granted by Allah, not because he knew spells that bind them to servitude.

* {{Miko}}: Maryam was raised from birth in a temple and had a compartment there for her to sleep in. Her mother had previously begged God for a child and would dedicate them to His service, whether they were a boy or a girl (women were expected to become mothers back in the day, hence why her vow was unusually bold).



* MoralityPet: Binyamin towards his family. All of them, his father Yaqub, his full brother Yusuf, even his wicked half-brothers all loved him to such an extent that they were reluctant when Yusuf (whom they did not recognize at the start) ordered his half-brothers to take Binyamin personally to Egypt.



* {{Nephewism}}: Maryam lived most of her life with her uncle, Zakariya, since her duty as a temple caregiver meant that she did not have much time home. Also, Muhammad, who was raised by his uncle, Abu Talib, after the deaths of his parents and grandfather.



* NoNameGiven: Unlike the name/genealogy-loving Bible, many characters in the Qur'an are not named and instead are characterized by their professions or how they relate to other characters who are named. This extends to the Biblical characters, who already had names during the time that the Qur'an was written. It is most obvious in the case of women; the only women who are named in the Qur'an are a part of Muhammad's family (his mother Amina, his wives Khadija, Aisha, and others, his daughter Fatima...) and Isa's mother, Maryam. So for the rest we have Adam's wife but not Eve, Ibrahim's wives who mothered Ismail[[note]]Ishmael[[/note]] and Ishak but not Hagar and Sarah, Yaqub[[note]]Jacob[[/note]]'s wife who mothered Yusuf and Binyamin[[note]]Benjamin[[/note]] but not Rachel, etc... (though popular legends gave them names, most of them based on the Biblical ones, anyway).

* PersonaNonGrata: Non-Muslims are barred from entering Mecca, the holy city that holds the Black Stone.

to:

* OutOfFocus: [[Literature/AnimalFarm All messengers are messengers, but some are more messengers than others]]. Well, not really, but while the Twenty-Five Messengers are equal messengers of the people from God, some of them are given more details about their exploits at the expense of others. In particular, we know next to nothing about Dhulkifl[[note]]Ezekiel[[/note]], Ilyas[[note]]Elijah[[/note]], Ilyasa[[note]]Elisha[[/note]], except that their contributions are great and genuine.
* ParentalAbandonment: Muhammad lost his father before he was born, then his mother when he was 5 years old.
* PersonaNonGrata: Non-Muslims are barred from entering Mecca, the holy city that holds the Black Stone. [[TruthInTelevision The law is still held to this very day]].

* TheSacredDarkness: Nights and their associated things (moon, stars, darkness, etc.) are ''heavily'' praised in Qur'an as well as in Islam in general. There are just so much events that happened during the night that its importance cannot be denied, including but not limited to: providing Bani Isra'il[[note]]Children of Israel[[/note]] escape from the Pharaoh, providing Muhammad and his followers relieve during their exile to Medina, the Night of Power, etc. There are also at least four chapters with a night theme in the series. Then there's the fact that the Islamic calendar is lunar and measures each day from dusk to the next dusk (a bit like Judaism, actually). Understandable, given that, being desert-dwellers, the nights are the only time when the Arabs and indeed the other Middle Eastern people can rest and look away from the harsh sun.

** For the Twenty-Five Messengers mentioned in the Qur'an, six are designated as "majors", because they were tasked to preach to more than their own people and had to endure much more challenges. They are: Adam, Nuh, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa, and Muhammad. As expected, their stories are the most detailed of the prophets'.



* TemporaryBlindness: Yaqub cried himself to blindness upon hearing about Yusuf's apparent death. His sight was restored by Yusuf himself, after all said and done.

* YankTheDogsChain: Almost. After years of no heir, Ibrahim was finally given a son through his second spouse: Ismail. But then, God ordered him to sacrifice the latter, and both resigned over God's command. Only for God, through an angel, to offer a cattle for sacrifice, because He was impressed by both individuals' faith to Him, turning this into a happy ending.[[note]]Yes, we all aware that Isaac (or rather, Ishak) was the one sacrificed in the Bible. The Qur'an's wording is actually ambiguous as to which son was sacrificed. Most interpreted it as Ismail because the account of the sacrifice preceded Ishak's birth, but the Qur'an's nature being anachronistic as it is, there is no way to be sure.[[/note]]

* MadeASlave / IndenturedServitude / HappinessInSlavery: Vanquished unbelievers are to be killed ([[MenAreTheExpendableGender men especially]]), converted or enslaved. While it's possible to become a ''dhimmi'' when you're Jewish or a Christian. However, being a slave is usually just a transitional state before becoming a Muslim through exhortation of one's master. If that fails, masters of slaves must treat their slaves fairly and make sure they don't resent their servitude, even though slavery in and of itself is not forbidden at all. If an infidel doesn't convert but wishes to be free, exile is the only alternative.

** A man is not allowed to hit his wife. The word used is "idribuhunna" which was derived from the word "daraba". The word "daraba" means to strike out (i.e. on a journey). However, misogyny has helped change that translation to one that leaves the "out" from "strike out", thereby giving a very wrong translation. The whole verse hence reads "As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) strike out (away from them); but if they show remorse, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For God is Most Forgiving, Great (above you all).
