BELIEF IN THE HOLY BOOKS:
One of the six articles of faith is to believe in the Holy Books of Allah (God): Muslims believe that Allah (God) revealed holy books to his messengers as a guidance for mankind. These include the Holy Quran (orally revealed by Allah to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), through the archangel Gabriel (Jibril) over a period of 23 years. The Qur’an is the primary holy text of the Islamic faith and is the final revelation of Allah (God) to mankind.
Islam respects all the prior revelations of Allah(God) :The Torah given to Moses (Musa) PBUH, the Psalms given to David (PBUH), the Gospel given to Jesus (PBUH), and the Scrolls given to Abraham (PBUH). Muslims believe that these earlier scriptures in their original form were divinely revealed, but only the Quran remains unaltered and as it was first revealed, to Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
