Title: Are the books of the previous Anbiyaa Qadeem or Haadith?

Question

Are the books of the previous Anbiyaa Qadeem or Haadith?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The original scriptures/books of the previous Anbiyaa are Qadeem (pre-eternal) since they are the Kalaam (divine speech) of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala). All The Sifaat (divine attributes) of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) including his Kalaam (divine speech) are Qadeem (pre-eternal) and Azali (pre-eternal).[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
