The current Psalms are still praised by many Muslim scholars.
Since the Zabur is corrupted, I wondered which scholars, if any, actually praise this corrupted Psalms.
Question: Which scholars praise the current Psalms?

Al-Biqa'i, the 15th-century Shafi'i scholar, comes to mind. Walid Saleh (UToronto) wrote,
"He [al-Biqa'i] has a soft spot for the Psalms, and used the book in remarkably sensitive ways to convey to the Muslim reader the sorrow and tribulations of the Jews during the destruction of the First Temple. He not only defended the sanctity of the Hebrew Bible but--here is the rub--he used it extensively to explain the biblical material in the Qur'an."
