ALMIGHTY ‘ALLAH’ has sent down books to mankind over time, to guide them and call them to true absolute monotheism, to remind them of the truth & reality of the hellfire (Naar) & heaven (Jannah) and to teach them the stories of the prophets & messengers and struggles they had.

 

There are four heavenly books which Allah sent down. They are the Tawraat (Torah),  Injeel (Gospel), Zaboor (Psalms)and the final revelation sent to ALL mankind; The Qur’an:

 

Allah says (interpretation of the meaning) in the Qu’ran;

“It is He Who has sent down the Book (the Qur’an) to you (Muhammad) with truth, confirming what came before it. And He sent down the Tawraat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)”

[Aal ‘Imraan 3:3 – interpretation of the meaning]

 

And Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“and to Dawood (David) We gave the Zaboor (Psalms)”

[al-Israa’ 17:55]

 

The Qur’an is the greatest and last of the heavenly Books, and it abrogates the books which came before it and is a witness over them, so we must follow it and ignore those which came before it:

“And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this Qur’an) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Mohaymin (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So judge among them by what Allah has revealed”[al-Maa’idah 5:48 – interpretation of the meaning]
