Books mentioned in the Bible that are not part of the "Today's Bible":
The following information was sent to me by brother Ibrahim Wilson; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
DOES THE QURAN HOLD IN VALIDITY IN STATING THAT THE TORAH WAS LOST OR CORRUPTED?
I have been reading with interest the last few exchanges regarding the reading of Jeremiah 8:8.
"How can you say,We are wise, and the Law of the Lord is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie,"
Note: ( Whenever you see that term 'law of the Lord' the Hebrew word is Torah.)
To me with all due respect to my Christian brethern I think what is stated is crystal clear. This will aslo hope to explain insh'Allah why Jesus a.s was always so hard on the SCRIBES!
I think for those who don't believe that the Torah was lost to posterity at one time would do good to read the following insh'Allah.
2 KINGS 22:8
"And Hiil-kiah, the high priest,said unto Shaphan, the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hil-kiah gave the book to Sha phan, and he read it."
"The accession of Josiah and his eagerness to restore the worship of Jehovah led to the renovation of the Temple, and in the course of this, B.C. 621, the book of Deuteronomy was discovered.

"Wherefore it is said in the BOOK OF THE WARS OF THE LORD, What He did in the Red Sea, and in the brooks of Arnon..."
Has any one during an Archeological dig(to prove the Bible) found this little gem?
"...Is this not written in the BOOK OF JASHER?"
Does any one know where this book is?
I KINGS 11:41
"And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom, are not written in the BOOK OF THE ACTS OF SOLOMON?"
Could someone let me know where this book is?
1 CHRONICLES 29:29
"Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written a BOOK OF SAMUEL THE SEER, and in the BOOK OF NATHAN THE PROPHET, and in the BOOK OF GAD THE SEER,.."
Does anyone know where I may find these original books?
WHERE ARE THE ABOVE MENTIONED BOOKS?
May Allah Almighty guide us all to the truth. Ameen. May Allah cause us to destroy our egos. Ameen. May Allah guide us if Christianity be the truth. Ameen. May Allah guide us if Islam be the truth. Ameen.
