Belief in His Books (Kitabs)

0 6

Allah sent His Books to various Prophets for the guidance of their nations. The larger Books are known as Kitabs while the smaller Books are known as Sahifas.

The Kitabs that were reveled are:

1. Tawrat (Torah)
Sent to Hazrat Musa (Moses) (‘alaihis salam)


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

2. Zabur (Psalms)
Sent to Hazrat Da’wuud (David) (‘alaihis salam)

3. Injil (Gospels)
Sent to Hazrat ‘Isa (Jesus) (‘alaihis salam)

4. Qur’an

Qur’an is the Final Book of Allah and was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (salLallhu ‘alaihi wa salLam). All the other Kitabs were revealed at once, except the Noble Qur’an, which was revealed over a period of 23 years.Muslim believe that the other three Kitabs no longer appear in their original revealed format and changes, alterations, additions and omissions have been made to them over the centuries. Whereas Allah Has promised to safeguard the text of the Qur’an till the end of time.
