It is from the care and mercifulness of God that He has sent Messengers to people to guide them to His Way, to convey to them His Message, to work as examples for people, and to explain for them the rituals of God’s worship. God revealed Scriptures to those Messengers to be a continuous and worldly divine link between people and their God, so that they feel them as they feel His creatures around them. Those books are miraculous in their wording, wisdoms, instructions, order, rules, commandments and all their sides.
The Qur’an and Sunnah related to us that God revealed Scriptures to Ibrahim (Abraham, peace be upon him), Az-Zabur (Zabor) to Dawud (David, peace be upon him), At-Tawrah (Torah) to Musa (Moses, peace be upon him), Al-Injil (Gospel) to `Isa (Jesus, peace be upon him) and the Qur’an (Quran) to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
It is part and parcel from the Islamic faith to believe in the divine books revealed on the Messengers of God (peace be upon them) as confirmed by the Qur’an and authentic hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
The Almighty God says in the Qur’an,
O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah , His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray. (An-Nisaa’ 4:136)
Narrated Abu Hurairah: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Faith is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Apostles, and the meeting with Him, and to believe in the Resurrection.” (Al-Bukhari)
In the below video, Sheikh Abdur-Raheem Green talks about the belief in the Divine Books and explains the importance that the books of the previous Prophets have to the Muslim community.
