Islamic holy books
The Quran is the final revelation of God to mankind, as well as a completion and confirmation of previous scriptures, according to Muslims. Belief in all the revealed books is an article of faith in Islam.
The Quran is a Muslim belief that Allah revealed the Quran to Muhammad verbally through the angel Gabriel. The Quran is divided into chapters (surah), which are then divided into verses (ayah).
Muslims argue that the Torah has become tainted over time and is no longer trustworthy.
Scholars have understood the Psalms to have been holy songs of praise, not books administering law, and Muslims generally assume that some of the current Psalms were written later and are not divinely revealed. The Quran mentions the Zabur, which is often interpreted as the Book of Psalms.
According to the Quran, the Injil was the holy book revealed to Jesus (Isa), and most scholars and Muslims believe it refers to an original Gospel, given to Jesus as Allah’s word; the current canonical Gospels, on the other hand, are not divinely revealed but rather documents of Jesus’ life.
Scrolls of Abraham
The Scrolls of Abraham, which were given to Abraham (Ibru0101hu0101m) and later used by Ishmael and Isaac, are thought to be one of the earliest bodies of scripture. Some scholars identify them with the Testament of Abraham, an apocalyptic piece of literature available in Arabic at the time of Muhammad.
Scrolls of Moses
The Scrolls of Moses contain some of Moses’ revelations, which Muslims interpret as referring to revelations other than the Torah; some scholars believe they may refer to a lost text mentioned in the Old Testament or Tanakh in the Book of Numbers.
Book of John the Baptist
Some scholars believe it may be referring to Mandu00e6an scriptures such as Ginza Rabba or Drau0161a u1e0f-Iahia, which is alluded to in Qur’an 19:12: O Yahya (John)! take hold of the Book with might: and We gave him Wisdom even as a youth.
The Torah is mentioned eighteen times in the Quran as true revelation that came before the Gospels and the Quran, and it is described as a source of wisdom by the Quran (5:46, 61:6). Muslims believe that, unlike the Quran, the Torah has not been preserved in its original, true, and complete form.
