Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “O you disbelievers! 109:1.

I do not worship what you worship,109:2

nor do you worship what I worship.109:3

I will never **worship what you worship,109:4

nor will you ever worship what I worship.109:5

So this verse is saying(109:4 - 5) that I will never worship wat you worship and you will never worship what I worship.

But this verse is saying

And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to them): "We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims)." Muhsin Khan 46:29

So in chapter 109(kafiroon) Allah said disbelievers do not worship the same God as Muslims worship(Prophet muhammad saw) and in 29:46 Allah says our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims) is same.

Is there any contradiction.


There is a difference between disbelievers and people of the book:

Al-Baqarah 2:62

Those who believe, and those who are Jewish, and the Christians, and the Sabeans —any who believe in God and the Last Day, and act righteously— will have their reward with their Lord; they have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve.

Al-Baynah 98:6

Those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture, and the Polytheists, will be in the Fire of Hell, where they will abide forever. These are the worst of creatures.

The Jewish, and the Christians, and the Sabeans who are true in their religion are usually neither counted under those who believe (āmanū) nor under those who disbelieve (kafarū).

It is mutually accepted between Muslim, Christians and Jews that we worshop the same One God.
