Az-Zaboor (the book of Psalms) is the book of Allaah The Almighty that He revealed to His messenger Daawood (David, Peace be upon him). The other books that were revealed by Allah are the Quran, the Tawrat, the Injeel (Gospel), and the Scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa (Peace be upon them). [1] The Zaboor is the Arabic word for the original Psalms scripture revealed to Prophet David (Dawood) (PBUH) [2]


Table of Contents



And to David We gave the book [of Psalms]. Quran Surah Isra 17:55 and 4:163


Recitation and the bounty of Daawood

Daawood(PBUH) had a beautiful voice so during his recitation of Az-Zaboor, humans, Jinn, birds and animals used to gather to listen to him.  Allaah the Almighty Said (what means): {And We certainly gave David from Us bounty. [We said], "O mountains, repeat [Our] praises with him, and the birds [as well]." And We made pliable for him iron,} Quran Surah 34:10



Narrated Abu Huraira(R): The Prophet () said, "The reciting of the Zabur (i.e. Psalms) was made easy for David. He used to order that his riding animals be saddled, and would finish reciting the Zabur before they were saddled. And he would never eat except from the earnings of his manual work." Sahih al-Bukhari 3417 (Vol.4: 628)


The bounty that was given to Daawood (David) included prophethood, the book of Az-Zaboor, knowledge, power, subjection of the mountains, ruling with justice, pliability of iron and a beautiful voice. 


Scholars view

Al-Haafith Ibn Hajar (May Allah have mercy on him),

mentioned that the lineage of Daawood (David, PBUH) is traced back to Ya‘qoob(Jacob)  who is also known as Israel. Therefore, he is the son of Eeshaason of ‘Oobad son of Ba’ar son of Salmoon son of Yaarib son of Raam son of‘Hadhroon son of Faaris son of Yahoothaa son of Ya’qoob. [3]



A Muslim must believe in all the Heavenly Books and he must believe that they are from Allah. It is not lawful for him to abide by its laws, since these Books were revealed to certain nations at certain times. [4] So Quran is the final book for entire mankind which is to be followed. Allah said: “Verily, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book for mankind in truth. So whosoever accepts the guidance, it is only for his own self; and whosoever goes astray, he goes astray only for his own loss.”Qur’an Surah Zumar 39:41[5]

And Allaah knows best.
