No other people are mentioned in the Qur'an as often as the people of Israel. They appear in sixteen surahs and approximately forty verses by name (banu Isra'il). The Qur'an also makes reference to the Jews either by name (al-yahud/hud) or within the context of the people of the book (ahl al-kitab). This paper aims to discuss the Qur'anic verses about the Jews and the people of Israel in terms of the naming and the content. Key questions to be addressed are: What is the purpose of the frequent mention of the people of Israel in the Qur'an? What is the context and the content of the verses about the Jews and the people of Israel both in Meccan and Medinan surahs? What message or messages are intended to or can be conveyed by these verses?Telif hakları gereğince yayın erişime kapalıdır.
