* CainAndAbel: Though they are not named, but the original Cain and Abel are here. Their story, though, exists to give an {{Aesop}}: killing a human is the same as killing all humans; saving a human is the same as saving all humans.

* SexIsEvil: Averted. Celibacy and asceticism are strongly discouraged, even though it's not forbidden in and of itself. Sex is considered to be perfectly normal and men and women are permitted to do any kinky thing they want with each other (except anal sex and BDSM which remain gravely sinful in any capacity), but only within the confines of marriage.

** The false Trinity when it is actually described in the Qu'ran; Allah/Isa/Marium is not the same one modern Christians believe in Father (origin)/Son (doer)/Spirit (omnipresence). It is true Trinity is never explicitly described in the gospels, just something people interpreted from them but Christians are not "ascribing partners to Allah", just trying to help people understand God better.
*** The modern Christian concept of Trinity still counts as syirk, since Christians consider Isa/Jesus to be part of God or God Itself. Syirk does not just mean ascribing partners to God, but also ascribing limitations upon God, which is unacceptable since the Lord God is beyond all things. Also it is not Allah/Isa/Marium but Allah/Isa/Jibrail, since Jibrail is described as Ruh al-Kuds, the Holy Spirit.

* FalseRapeAccusation: When Yusuf (= Joseph in the Bible; surah 12) is the slave of a rich Egyptian (only referred to as Al-´Aziz, "Mighty One"), the wife of his master tries to seduce him. Yusuf refuses her and tries to run away, and as the wife is trying to hold him back, she rends his shirt. Her husband comes by and she explains the situation as Yusuf assaulting her. However, 'Aziz does not believe her, because he notices that Yusuf's shirt is torn from the back, not from the front. As a result, 'Aziz' wife is mocked by the other women of the city for being in love with a slave. She retaliates by inviting the other women to their house so they can see Yusuf themselves, with the effect that all of them now want Yusuf. Yusuf again rejects them and is eventually thrown into prison on account of the scorned women (although the Quran does not say under what accusation he is imprisoned). More so than the Biblical account, the Quran is somewhat sympathetic to 'Aziz' wife because it makes clear that Yusuf is incomparably beautiful, and that Yusuf is also attracted to her in turn and rejects her only because adultery is a sin.

* MadeASlave: 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. Subverted in that for even the slightest trangression, the consequence would be that the slave-owner would have to emancipate a slave and set them up for life, making it very clear that slavery was wrong. Muhammad himself bought his companion Bilal's[[note]]who was one of Muhammad's most trusted companions[[/note]] emancipation.

* CondescendingCompassion: The usual treatment reserved to non-Muslims. While the Qu'ran strongly advises tolerance and fairness towards non-Muslims, non-Muslims are still unsurpisingly considered untrustworthy, ignorant and delusional lost souls (much like TheBible sees non-Christians). Hence, the Qu'ran clearly discourages Muslims from forming strong bonds with them.
