Are Jews and Christians the only guided people to Allah’s Path


Q: Are Jews and Christians the only guided people to Allah’s Path?
A: And they said be Jews or Christians you will be guided (to Allah’s Path); Say (command to Prophet Muhammad) rather the Religion of Abraham (Ibraheem) believing in One God and he (Abraham) was not from the polytheists (worshippers of many gods).
Translation of: Ayah 135, Surat AlBaqarah.
وَقَالُوا كُونُوا هُودًا أَوْ نَصَارَى تَهْتَدُوا قُلْ بَلْ مِلَّةَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ

Q: Were the followers of the prophets *BEFORE Moses and Jesus peace be upon them called Jews or Christians?
A: Or do you say that Abraham (Ibraheem) and Ishmael (Ismail) and Isaac (Is’haq) and Jacob (Yaqoub) and the offspring of Jacob (= AlAsbat) were Jews or Christians? Say (command to Prophet Muhammad): Do you know more or Allah does? And who is more a sinner than who had concealed a testimony (a witnessed statement) from Allah that he has; And Allah is Not Unaware of what you are doing.
Translation of: Ayah 140, Surat AlBaqarah.
أَمْ تَقُولُونَ إِنَّ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَالْأَسْبَاطَ كَانُوا هُودًا أَوْ نَصَارَى قُلْ أَأَنْتُمْ أَعْلَمُ أَمِ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ كَتَمَ شَهَادَةً عِنْدَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمَا اللَّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

Note: The Map of the Prophets

Map of Allah’s Prophets whose names are mentioned in the Qur’an
And We (Allah) sent messengers before you (Messenger Muhammad); From them whom We narrated upon you their stories (in the Qur’an) and from them whom We did not narrate upon you; And it was not for a messenger (of Allah) to come about with a miracle but with the permission of Allah; So when the Command of Allah (Day of Judgment) comes it will be ruled with justice and there the nullifiers (liars) will lose.

Translation of Line (Ayah) 78, Chapter (Surat) Ghafir in the Qur’an.
لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلًا مِنْ قَبْلِكَ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَصَصْنَا عَلَيْكَ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ لَمْ نَقْصُصْ عَلَيْكَ وَمَا كَانَ لِرَسُولٍ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ بِآيَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ فَإِذَا جَاءَ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ قُضِيَ بِالْحَقِّ وَخَسِرَ هُنَالِكَ الْمُبْطِلُون
