The Qur'an's relationship to earlier books

Muslims believe in progressive revelation, that the revelation of God (Arabic: Allah) changed with time and different groups of people. Thus, the Qur'an specified that the Injil abrogated the Tawrat and the Qur'an abrogated all the other books. (It is silent in regard to the Zabur, but Muslims infer that the Zabur was abrogated by a successive revelation.) A Muslim is a believer in or follower of Islam. ... Allah is the Arabic language word for God. ...


As an example, while the Qur'an acknowledges that the Torah prohibited working on the Sabbath, the Qur'an allows working and overrules it.

It was believed that their conversion to Islam would begin by devoutly following the earlier holy books. For other uses, see Sabbath. ...
