Symbol of Islam: Crescent Moon and StarHe has prescribed for you the religion which He enjoined on Noah, and which We have revealed to thee, and which We enjoined on Abraham and Moses and Jesus, saying, ‘Remain steadfast in obedience, and be not divided therein. Hard upon the idolaters is that to which thou callest them. Allah chooses for Himself whom He pleases, and guides to Himself him who turns to Him.’

Symbol of Judaism: The Star of DavidSo now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? Only to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord your God and his decrees that I am commanding you today, for your own well-being.

Judaism, the Torah, Deuteronomy 10:12-13

Symbol of Judaism: The Star of DavidThe law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
The decrees of the Lord are sure,
making wise the simple;
The precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is clear,
Enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever;
The ordinances of the Lord are true
and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
Sweeter also than honey,
and drippings of the honeycomb.

Judaism, the Tanakh, Psalm 19:7-10

But those who look into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and persevere, being not hearers who forget but doers who act – they will be blessed in their doing.

Christianity, the Bible, James 1:25

Symbol of Hinduism: AumMeet together, speak together, let your minds be of one accord, as the gods of old, being of one mind, accepted their share of the sacrifice. May your counsel be common, common the mind, and the thoughts of these united. A common purpose do I lay before you, and worship with your common oblation. Let your aims be common, and your hearts of one accord, and all of you be of one mind, so you may live well together.

Hinduism, Rig Veda 10.191. 2-4
