“Allah has sent down the best statement, a Book (this Quran), its parts resembling each other in goodness and truth, oft-repeated.  The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it (when they recite it or hear it).  Then their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allah. That is the guidance of Allah.  He Guides therewith whom He pleases and whomever Allah sends astray, for him there is no guide.”  (39:23)

“And when they (who call themselves Christians) listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognized.  They say: “Our Lord!  We believe; so write us down among the witnesses. And why should we not believe in Allah and in that which has come to us of the truth (Islamic Monotheism)?  And we wish that our Lord will admit us (in Paradise on the Day of Resurrection) along with the righteous people (Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم and his Companions رضي الله عنهم).  So because of what they said, Allah rewarded them with gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise); they will abide therein forever. Such is the reward of good-doers.” (5:83-85)

“O you who believe [in Musa(Moses, i.e. the Jews)] and ‘Isa (Jesus, i.e. the Christians)]!  Fear Allah, and believe too in His Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم).  He will give you a double portion of His Mercy, and He will give you a light by which you shall walk (straight), and He will forgive you.  And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  (57:28)

“This is a Book (the Quran) which we have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its Verses, and that men of understanding may remember.”  (38:29)
“It (the Quran) is for those who believe, a guide and a healing.  And as for those who disbelieve, there is heaviness (deafness) in their ears, and it (the Quran) is blindness for them.  They are those who are called from a place far away” (so they neither listen nor understand).   (41:44)
