    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the answer being False is that the statement is incorrect. The Qur'an did not allow everyone to continue worshiping many gods. In fact, one of the central teachings of the Qur'an is the belief in monotheism, the worship of only one God. The Qur'an called for the abandonment of polytheistic beliefs and the worship of idols, emphasizing the concept of Tawhid (the oneness of God). Therefore, the statement that the Qur'an appealed to all people because it allowed worship of many gods is false.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the poor and marginalised individuals were attracted to Islam because it promotes social justice. This means that Islam provides support and advocates for equal rights and opportunities for all members of society, regardless of their socioeconomic status. The strong social justice message of Islam would resonate with those who are disadvantaged and seeking fairness and equality. As a result, it can be inferred that the statement is true.
