Abstract: We introduce normed Jordan Q-algebras, namely, normed Jordan algebras in which the set of quasi-invertible elements is open, and we prove that a normed Jordan algebra is a Q-algebra if and only if it is a full subalgebra of its completion. Homomorphisms from normed Jordan Q-algebras onto semisimple Jordan-Banach algebras with minimality of norm topology are continuous. As a consequence, the topology of the norm of a $ J{B^ \ast }$-algebra is the smallest normable topology making the product continuous, and $ J{B^ \ast }$-algebras have minimality of the norm. Some applications to (associative) $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras are also given: (i) the associative normed algebras that are ranges of continuous (resp. contractive) Jordan homomorphisms from $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras are bicontinuously (resp. isometrically) isomorphic to $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras, and (ii) weakly compact Jordan homomorphisms from $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras are of finite rank.
