The Qur`an explicitly mentions the 'Majus'/'Magus' or Magians (Magi = Wise men from the East who were Zoroastrians) only once:
"Surely those who believe [in the message brought to mankind by Muhammad (PBUH)]; and those who are Jews; and the Sabians; and the Christians; and the Magians; and those who associate equals with Allaah; indeed will Allaah decide between them of the Day of Resurrection. Lo! Allaah, over all things, is Witness."
