Good Neighbors

I live in a really great neighborhood.  I am so grateful for the friendship I have with so many of my neighbors.  When our house flooded, we had about 30 people come to our immediate rescue to help move all of our belongings out of the house, bring us dinner, and look after our kids.  Some neighbors let us live in their house while they were on vacation, and a few others put us up on their spare beds and couches until we found somewhere else to stay.  Since then we have had help with dinners, cleaning, unpacking, and weeding the garden.  I even had a friend pick peaches from my tree, can them, and bring me the bottled peaches. We have been very blessed.

    Say, "O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him]."
    O People of the Scripture, why do you argue about Abraham while the Torah and the Gospel were not revealed until after him? Then will you not reason?
    Here you are - those who have argued about that of which you have [some] knowledge, but why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge? And Allah knows, while you know not.
    Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah]. And he was not of the polytheists.
    Indeed, the most worthy of Abraham among the people are those who followed him [in submission to Allah] and this prophet, and those who believe [in his message]. And Allah is the ally of the believers.
    A faction of the people of the Scripture wish they could mislead you. But they do not mislead except themselves, and they perceive [it] not.
    O People of the Scripture, why do you disbelieve in the verses of Allah while you witness [to their truth]?
