Those who believe (in the Qur'an),
And those who follow the Jewish (scriptures),
And the Christians and the Sabians, -
Any who believe in God
And the Last Day,
And work righteousness,
Shall have their reward.

Qur'an, S. II. 62 
Translator, A. Yusuf Ali

If asked, "Does the Koran (Qur’an) say Jews and Christians can go to heaven?" most people in the Western World would probably answer, "I doubt it." That’s because most people in the West have little or no understanding about Islam, a Muslim’s faith.
