This article presents an analysis of the social characteristics of Jews in the Holy Qur’an, which aims to present the identity of the Jewish community, such as their names, languages, areas of residence, travels, and religions and by presenting a set of Qur’anic verses in this regard and reading them an analytical reading through which I concluded that the Jews are a Bedouin nation that was imprinted on the cruelty and roughness of life and they remained so despite their mixing with ancient civilizations such as Egyptian and Canaanite. Although she received many divine blessings, including the multitude of prophets, she disbelieved in the blessings of God and preferred to remain on the right path. Then she talked about the immoral behavioral characteristics that characterize the Jews, such as betraying the divine covenant, concealment of truth, refraining from the path of God, lying, miserliness, cowardice and so on. These qualities were a reason for their deviation and their rejection of the prophets' approach, as they moved to oppose their call and confront their movement and dealt with the prophets of their time harsh treatment of killing and displacement and an attempt to drop the holy status that God Almighty chose for them. Then I mentioned the lessons learned from the story of the Jews in the Noble Qur’an and the methods of protecting the Islamic community from the threat that threatens the Jews of this ummah, such as studying the Jewish personality and getting acquainted with it, taking caution and caution from them and confronting the intellectual and psychological invasion.
