Do Muslims Believe in Bible? & the Past Scriptures?┇Tawrat Zabur Injil Quran Zabur God’s Holy Books


Do Muslims Believe in the Old & New Testaments? Belief in the Holy Quran and All of God’s
past Scriptures, that God has sent down to serve humanity as delivered through His Prophets,
is an article of faith in Islam; one in which every Muslim is obligated to believe. Muslims believe in all of God’s Inspired
Books. The Holy Quran states: Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah
and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and
Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was
given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them,
and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him” (Quran 2:136) Prophet Muhammad reported that more than 124,000
Prophets and 315 Messengers were sent to humanity over time. Inspiration or Revelation comes to God’s
Human Prophets either directly or through an intermediary of Angel Gabriel who brings
the revelation to them. Every Prophet received Inspiration from God. Some of the Revelations later were compiled
to form the content of larger Books. Some of these Books were named to us by God;
others were not. God states that He has sent previous scriptures
before the Holy Quran. Among these Divine Books is the Injeel (Gospel),
Torah, the Zabur (Psalms of David), and the Scripture revealed to Prophet Abraham. Every religion that believes in God believes
in Revelation. These Books seek to guide man through every
aspect of life. God’s Books as a whole act as a guide, an
instructional manual regarding the manner in which one’s life should be lived. “He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad],
the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel”
(Quran 3:3) All of the preceding Prophets and Books were
sent to specific past nations that lived before us, and do not apply to us. Only the final Prophet and the final testament,
the Holy Quran is meant for our nation, the last nation, and are meant to be followed
to the last day. Whenever a Revelation was sent from God, that
Revelation would contain a prediction of another Revelation to come after it. When the new Revelation arrives, it becomes
mandatory for the one that believed in the previous Scripture to believe in the next
One. One has to believe in All of God’s Revelations
and the rejection to any one of them is equal to the rejection of All of them. Past nations that received Divine Books were
entrusted to protect them, also being told to draw guidance through them; empowering
them to live righteous lives and become closer to God. However, throughout time, this trust was betrayed. These Books were distorted, changed, corrupted,
and edited with manmade additions and subtractions. Once altered, these Books no longer contained
the True Words of God. When previous Holy Scriptures were altered
and corrupted by the human hand, due to the Mercy of God, He sent new Scriptures so as
not to leave mankind in darkness—without the benefit of light and Guidance. Eventually, God sent his final Testament:
the Holy Quran. He did not entrust a nation to preserve this
book; rather, God Himself assumed the responsibility to preserve, safeguard and protect His final
Book, to ensure that it does not get modified by men in the same manner as the past Scriptures. The final nation, our nation, was entrusted
to follow only this Book, the Holy Quran, that would guide them to the right path. God made an explicit Promise in the Holy Quran
to preserve His final Book to the end of time. “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an
and indeed, We will be its guardian” (Quran 15:9) The Quran is now a widely known and much-memorized
document. In fact, the Qu’ran is the only book that
is memorized by millions of people of all ages around the world, of all languages and
backgrounds, from one end to the other. Even if all copies of the Holy Qu’ran were
burned, this Book could not possibly get modified—this owing to the fact that it has been memorized
by millions of people across the globe by the letter. Due to the fact that the Holy Quran will never
be distorted or modified by the hands of men, no need ever will exist for a new Revelation
to be sent from God. The Holy Quran is the only scripture in existence
today that exists in its original language and words. Not one letter of the Holy Qu’ran has been
changed since its revelation. Whereas Muslims believe in and respect the
past Scriptures, the current modern-day Old Testament and the New Testament–which modern
Christians call the Bible–are not published in their original, God-given form. Whereas these Books still contain some remaining
traces of truth, they do not stand in their original revealed form. They now contain man-made ideas and innovations
that corrupt their current state. God states in the Holy Quran: “And indeed, there is among them a party who
alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but
it is not from the Scripture. And they say, “This is from Allah,” but it
is not from Allah. And they speak untruth about Allah while they
know.” (Quran 3:78) The modern-day new testament was authored
by individuals after the departure of Prophet Jesus, including the gospels of Mathew, Mark,
Luke, Paul, and the current Psalms of David. These words were authored by individuals,
including representatives of the house of Asaph and the sons of Korah, and more. The Injeel (Gospel) in which Muslims believe
in is that which was brought by Prophet Jesus from God the Al-Mighty Himself. Christians do not believe in the existence
of a Book (Injeel) sent from God and given to Jesus; nor do they believe Jesus Christ
wrote the Bible, rather, they acknowledge that the Bible was written by men of all walks
of life over of the years. The current day Bible is polluted with the
ideas of a number of different authors, some of whom are anonymous. The modern-day Bible also contains myths,
words of men, superstitions, irrational philosophical ideologies, and idol worship. God stated in the Holy Quran: “So woe to those who write the ‘scripture’
with their own hands, then say, “This is from Allah,” in order to exchange it for a small
price. Woe to them for what their hands have written
and woe to them for what they earn.” (Quran 2:79) Due to the fact that previous Scriptures were
meant for past nations, God the Almighty did not find it fit to preserve them. They no longer exist today, in their original
form. Muslims believe that the Holy Quran has abrogated
all previous scriptures before it; meaning that it cancels the rulings of the previous
scriptures and renders them inapplicable going forward.
