This passage, like the first, refers to former
inspired writings; and further contains a summary of
their general contents, as regards Man's responsibility,
future rewards and punishments, the power and providence
of God, &c., ending with these words:
SURA LIII., v. 56
The reference to "The pages of Abraham," is
probably to the pages of his history and sayings,
contained in the Old Testament. For there was no
"Book of Abraham" current amongst the Jews.
And there is no allusion throughout the Corân which
would lead to the suspicion that Mahomet intended any
other book than the Pentateuch or Scriptures which were
in use amongst the Jews of his time, and were regarded
by them as inspired.
III.SURA LXXX., v. 11 [-16].
كلاّ إِنَّهَا تَذْكِرَةٌ
