Good point, dhimmi no more

in response to reader comment: Islam is the religion of the Arabs only

Dhimmi no more writes -

The Qur'an says it is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only as per Q14:4 and the Hijazi Arabs spoke Arabic and the Qur'an is revealed in Arabic and you ain't no Arab.

"It does not say anywhere in the Bible that Christianity is the religion of only those that speak Greek and Aramaic."

Good point.

In fact, whether people believe in the God of the Bible or not, no one had to later come up with ways to get around something like this (Q14:4). In fact, the Bible clearly states the opposite.

"There is neither Greek nor Jew, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus." - Gal 3:28

Know of any verses in the Qur'an that state something like, "There is neither Arab nor Egyptian"?

I wonder if Imam Ahmad does.
