Believe In The Divine Books
The Almighty tells us in the Holy Quran:
لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنْزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْمِيزَانَ ــ سورة الحديد، 25
“We have sent Our Messengers with proof, and (through them) we have revealed The Books and The Scales…” (Al-Hadid 25)
Almighty God delivered his messages through his Envoys and Prophets to whom their followers refer to know the commandments and Laws of God.
The number of Divine Leaflets and Books is 104 in total, as mentioned in the hadith of Ibn Hibban (1.) In this hadith Abu Dhar al-Ghafari – may God be pleased with him – asked the Prophet – about Him salvation and blessings from God- How many scriptures did God send? Answer: One hundred and four written messages: fifty Leaflets revealed to Seth – son of Adam, thirty to Enoch (Idris), ten to Ibrahim (Abraham), ten to Moses (on Them all Greetings and Blessings) before the Torah, then the Torah, the Gospel, the Psalms and the Koran.
As soon as a verse or a group of verses was revealed, the Prophet – on Him Salvation and Blessings from God – recited them for his companions and asked them to write them down and memorize them, which they always did. Subsequently, the full text was ordered. Not according to the chronological order of the revelation but in accordance with the Divine directives, transmitted by Djibril – (the Holy Spirit) -on him salvation- to the Prophet -on him salvation and blessings from God-.
The Qur’an is the only Divine book that remains absolutely unchanged. Both in form and content, without any distortion or alteration. This is attested by even some renowned non-Muslim authors such as Barush spinoza (2). And the credit, all the credit goes to God and to Him alone. “It is we who have revealed the Koran, and we are its Guardians” Al hijr 9
The Quran was first collected in the time of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (- God be pleased of him-), that is, one year after the death of the Prophet, (- on Him Salvation and Blessings from God-). At the time of Uthman Ibn Affan, (- God be pleased of him-) the text assembled by Abu Bakr has been reproduced in 4 copies. A copy kept in Medina. two copies were sent to the Koufa and the Basra in Iraq, the fourth was sent to Damascus. And since then to the present day all copies of the Qur’ans are a strictly complete reproduction of the text assembled by Abu Bakr al-Siddiq and Uthman Ibn Affan – God be pleased of them) (2)
Muslim faith involves believing in all the revealed scriptures and conforming one’s actions and behavior to the Teachings of the Quran.
