Benevolence is one of the valuable moral concepts that has been seriously and fundamentally emphasized in the teachings of Islam and previous religions. According to the biblical texts, it can be said that the ultimate goal of the divine religions is the expansion and extension of charity. In the Quran and the Bible, valuable verses and teachings have been mentioned, the practice of each of which can guide man to his destination and smooth the path for his approach to God more than before. This research has been done based on descriptive-analytical method and with the aim of applying the view of the Quran and the books of the Bible about the examples of "benevolence". As a result, according to the verses of the Quran and the teachings of the Bible, a clear picture of the real position of the Quranic teachings in the institutionalization of moral teachings and its greater impact on the teachings of the Bible can be provided. The results of a comparative study show that the examples of "benevolence" in the Quran and the Bible include zakat (almsgiving), charity, donation, feeding the needy and affection that can be assigned to different groups of society; but the difference is that in the Quran, benevolence is more diverse and emphasized than in the Bible.
