  • Number Of Holy Books

    Posted by Bushra Jilani on October 17, 2022 at 12:22 pm

    I am 12 years old and study in 6th grade. I have some questions for which I need little clarification.

    Are there five holy books as told by my Islamiat teacher:
    Quran, Torait, Zuboor, Injeel and Scroll (which was sent on Hazrat Ibrahim)

    These are the ones that Qur’an mentions and hence we can confirm. They may be more that we do not know about. Allah knows better.

    Welcome to Ask Ghamidi platform. Great to have you here!

    Following three previous books are mentioned in the Quran by name:

    Tawrah (Torah)

    Zabur (Psalms)

    Injil (the Gospel)

    The scrolls of Abraham are also mentioned in the Quran but there is no proper name mentioned.

    In addition, there might be other books that God might have revealed in the past but since they are not mentioned in the Quran so we cannot be sure.


    Please feel free to post any of your future questions on Ask Ghamidi. The only thing that I request is that you use this platform with an adult since certain questions asked by others are not age appropriate for 12 year olds. Wish you all the best!
