Allah has revealed His Books to various Prophets for the guidance of their nations.
There are two types of Books:
- Kitaabs (the big Books)
- Sahifas (the small Books)
The four main Kitaabs are:
- Tawrat (Old Testament)
- Zaboor (Psalms)
- Injeel (New Testament)
Besides these Books, there were smaller Books revealed known as Sahifas.
- 10 Sahifas were revealed to Hazrat Ādam(as)
- 50 Sahifas were revealed to Hazrat Shees(as)
- 30 Sahifas were revealed to Hazrat Idrees(as)
- 10-30 Sahifas were revealed to Hazrat Ibrahim(as)
Verses where the Scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa are mentioned:
So remind, if the reminder should benefit;
He who fears [ Allah ] will be reminded.
But the wretched one will avoid it -
[He] who will [enter and] burn in the greatest Fire,
Neither dying therein nor living.
He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself
And mentions the name of his Lord and prays.
But you prefer the worldly life,
While the Hereafter is better and more enduring.
Indeed, this is in the former scriptures,
The scriptures of Abraham and Moses.
Or has he not been informed of what was in the scriptures of Moses
And [of] Abraham, who fulfilled [his obligations]
The Scriptures of Ibrahim are Sahifas.
And Allah knows best.
