Here’s one quote from Christopher Marlowe.

Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe (1564 – 1593) was an English poet and translator of the Elizabethan era, who also rivalled Shakespeare as the most powerful dramatist of the Elizabethan period. 

“:Tamburlaine: Now, Casane, where’s the Turkish Alcoran,
“And all the heaps of superstitious books Found in the temples of that Mahomet Whom I have thought a god? they shall be burnt.
“Usumcasane: Here they are, my lord.
“Tamburlaine: Well said! let there be a fire presently.
“[They light a fire.]
“In vain, I see, men worship Mahomet: My sword hath sent millions of Turks to hell, Slew all his priests, his kinsmen, and his friends, And yet I live untouch’d by Mahomet. There is a God, full of revenging wrath,  From whom the thunder and the lightning breaks, Whose scourge I am, and him will I obey. So, Casane; fling them in the fire.—
“[They burn the books.]
“Now, Mahomet, if thou have any power, Come down thyself and work a miracle: Thou art not worthy to be worshipped That suffer’st flames of fire to burn the writ Wherein the sum of thy religion rests: Why send’st thou not a furious whirlwind down, To blow thy Alcoran up to thy throne, Where men report thou sitt’st by God himself? Or vengeance on the head of Tamburlaine That shakes his sword against thy majesty, And spurns the abstracts of thy foolish laws?— Well, soldiers, Mahomet remains in hell; He cannot hear the voice of Tamburlaine: Seek out another godhead to adore; The God that sits in heaven, if any god,
“For he is God alone, and none but he.

From the 1662 Book of Common Prayer,  the Collect for Good Friday:
O MERCIFUL God, who hast made all men, and hatest nothing that thou hast made, nor wouldest the death of a sinner, but rather that he should be converted and live; Have mercy upon all Jews, Turks, Infidels, and Hereticks, and take from them all ignorance, hardness of heart, and contempt of thy Word; and so fetch them home, blessed Lord, to thy flock, that they may be saved among the remnant of the true Israelites, and be made one fold under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Just a quibble with Marlowe: Temur-e-lengk was himself a Muslim, Turkic by language (even if Mongol by descent). Further, he was an extremely bloody-minded man. He died in the early 1400's while on a campaign to punish Ming China, against which he had a grudge because China had thrown off the rule of the Mongol Yuan Dynasty in 1638.
