as far as I Heard or Know that , allah revealed sahifa to nabi and Kitab (Quran,Injil,etc) revealed to rasul ...

  1. Is it true ?
  2. what is sahifa ?

Looking clarification...

  • Please share the source of your knowledge because this is new to me! And the main difference between Nabi and Rasul is not the revelation, but their duty: The Rasul is a messenger he must spread the message, the Nabi must not. Therfore how Allah revealed to each is rather irrelevant however I doubt that Allah revealed something written because both Sahifa and Kitab are written texts and even the qur'an was revealed or transmitted orally ever since. The fact that we have a Moshaf is strictly speaking a bid'ah -linguistic perspective- and regarded by some scholars as benefit for the ummah. – Sassir Mar 7 at 15:39
  • @Sassir I agree with you.. it's a bid'ah.. actually I am looking for clarification ... I have no source... – نور Mar 7 at 15:46
  • Sahifa ( صحیفہ ) is the singular of Suhuf (صحف) that is used in Quran.
  • It literally means pages/newspaper but in terminology of Quran, it’s also used for divine books/ scriptures.
  • Divine books were revealed to many Messengers. Four of these are mentioned by name in Quran; Tawrat, Zaboor, Injeel and Quran.
  • All the rest are mentioned with a general name; suhuf.
  • The exact number of Suhuf (صحف) is unknown
  • This word is also used for Quran in the following verse;

A Messenger from Allah, reciting purified scriptures Surah Al-Bayyina Verse 2

Second Portion

Torah which was revealed to Prophet Moses

also in Quran

Or has he not been informed of what was in the scriptures of Moses Surah An-Najm Verse 36

Above this verse used plural Suhuf (صحف) form of Sahifa ( صحیفہ )..

allah revealed sahifa to nabi and Kitab (Quran,Injil,etc) revealed to rasul ... It's not true...
