When it comes to actually acknowledging people of other faiths, cultures and places, the Qur'an is quite different from the Bible. The Qur'an acknowledges that people from other parts of the world were also guided by God to teach their communities whereas the Bible only acknowledges the people of Israel. Based on the message of the Bible, only those people are mentioned or given the favors of God even though some of them demonstrated some very lowly practices like Samson going to Gaza, saw a prostitute and went into her right there on the roadside. Or Judah screwing his own daughter in law thinking that she was a prostitute. Or even Rueben screwing his step mother on the rooftop. And those are not the only cases of this kind of behavior. If you read the Bible, you would hardly know that there is any place outside of Judea & Samaria.
