The reality of belief in the Books

The reality of belief in the Books
What does it mean to believe in the Books?


Praise be to Allaah.


Belief in the Books implies four things: 

1 – Firm belief that all of them were revealed from Allaah,
and that Allaah spoke them in a real sense. Some of them were heard from Him
from behind a veil, without there being any intermediary from among the
angels. Some were conveyed by an angelic Messenger to a human Messenger.
Some were written by Allaah’s own Hand, as He says (interpretation of the

“It is not given to any human being that Allaah should
speak to him unless (it be) by Revelation, or from behind a veil, or (that)
He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is
Most High, Most Wise”[al-Shoora 42:51] 

“and to Moosa (Moses) Allaah spoke directly”

[al-Nisa’ 4:164] 

And Allaah said concerning the Tawraat (Torah): 

“And We wrote for him on the Tablets the lesson to be
drawn from all things and the explanation for all things”

[al-A’raaf 7:145] 

2 – The Books that Allaah
has mentioned by name, we must believe in by name. These are the Books which
Allaah has named in the Qur’aan, i.e., the Qur’aan, the Tawraat (Torah), the
Injeel (Gospel), the Zaboor (Psalms), and the Scriptures of Ibraaheem and

Those which Allaah has mentioned in general terms, we must
believe in them in general terms, so we say concerning them what Allaah and
His Messenger have commanded us to say: 

“…say: “I believe in whatsoever Allaah has sent down of
the Book [all the holy Books…]”

[al-Shoora 42:15 – interpretation of the meaning] 

3 – Believing whatever is true of what they say, such as what
is said in the Qur’aan, and whatever has not been altered or distorted in
the previous Books. 

4 – Believing that Allaah revealed the Qur’aan as a witness
over these Books and to confirm them, as Allaah says (interpretation of the

“And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this
Qur’aan) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Muhaymin
(trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old
Scriptures)”[al-Maa'idah 5:48] 

The mufassireen said that Muhaymin means trustworthy
and a witness over the Books that came before it, and confirming them, i.e.,
confirming whatever is true in them and rejecting whatever alterations,
distortions and changes have occurred in them, and ruling that the previous
rulings have been abrogated – i.e., they are no longer applicable – and that
new rulings and laws have been promulgated. Hence all those who were
following previous books and who have not turned on their heels should
submit to it, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And when it is recited to them, they say: We believe in
it. Verily, it is the truth from our Lord. Indeed even before it we have
been from those who submit themselves to Allaah in Islam as Muslims”

[al-Qasas 28:52-53] 

It is obligatory for all the ummah to follow the Qur’aan both
outwardly and inwardly, and to adhere to it, and give it its due, as Allaah
says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“And this is a blessed Book (the Qur’aan) which We have
sent down, so follow it and fear Allaah”[al-An’aam 6:155] 

What is meant by adhering to the Qur’aan and giving it its
due is: regarding what it permits as permitted, regarding what it forbids as
forbidden, obeying its commands, avoiding that which it prohibits, paying
heed to its lessons, learning from its stories, understanding its clear and
unambiguous texts, referring the exact meaning of its ambiguous texts to
Allaah, not overstepping its limits and defending it, whilst memorizing it,
reciting it in a proper manner, pondering the meanings of its verses,
reciting it in prayer night and day, being sincere towards it in all senses,
and calling others to do likewise with understanding. 

This belief will bear great fruit for a person, the most
important of which is: 

Knowledge of Allaah’s care for
His slaves, for He has revealed to each people a Book by which they may be

Knowledge of the wisdom of
Allaah in the laws which He has set out for each people, laws which are
suited to their circumstances as Allaah says (interpretation of the
meaning): “To
each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way” [al-Maa’idah 5:48].

Fulfilling the duty of giving
thanks to Allaah for this great blessing.

The importance of paying
attention to the Qur’aan, by reading it, pondering its meanings,
understanding its meanings and acting accordingly. 

And Allaah knows best.
