in response to reader comment: Evidence from Quran that Allah did rescue non-muslims in the past

Doing good deeds and preaching the message of Quran to non-believers is acceptable from the Quran's point of view. The following is the extract:

Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #89, "Allah said: "Verily, the invocation of you both is accepted. So you both keep to the Straight Way (i.e. keep on DOING GOOD DEEDS and PREACHING ALLAH'S MESSAGE with patience), and follow not the path of those who know not (the truth i.e. to believe in the Oneness of Allah, and also to believe in the Reward of Allah: Paradise)." (Mohshin Khan's translation)

Allah's intention upon non-muslims is not to kill, but to demand their repentance to Allah. The following are the extracts:

Al-Jinn, Chapter #72, Verse #16, "If they (NON-MUSLIM) HAD BELIEVED IN ALLAH, AND WENT ON THE RIGHT WAY (i.e. Islam) We would surely have bestowed on them water (rain) in abundance." (Mohsin Khan's translation)

Maryam, Chapter #19, Verse #60, "EXCEPT THOSE WHO REPENT AND BELIEVE (in the Oneness of Allah and His Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), AND WORK RIGHTEOUSNESS. Such will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged in aught.

Allah forgives those unbelievers that repent from unbelieving. The following is the extract:

Taha, Chapter #20, Verse #82, "And verily, I am indeed forgiving to him who repents, believes (in My Oneness, and associates none in worship with Me) and does righteous good deeds, and then remains constant in doing them, (till his death)."

Allah will be among those non-muslims that repent from their unbelieving. The following is the extract:

Al-Qasas, Chapter #28, Verse #67, "But as for him who repented (from polytheism and sins), believed (in the Oneness of Allah, and in His Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), and did righteous deeds (in the life of this world), then he will be among those who are successful. "

Allah delights non-muslims to repent instead of slaughtering them. The following is the extract:

Ar-Rad, Chapter #13, Verse #30, "Thus have We sent you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم) to a community before whom other communities have passed away, in order that you might recite unto them what We have revealed to you, while THEY DISBELIEVE IN THE MOST GRACIOUS (ALLAH), SAY: "HE IS MY LORD! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)! IN HIM IS MY TRUST, AND TO THEM WILL BE MY RETURN WITH REPENTANCE."
