Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said:

Regarding the Books of the People of the Book

In summary: That what has come in their books - meaning the previous [revealed] books - divides into two types and two things:

Firstly: That about which Allaah has narrated to us in the Qur'an, or the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) [has narrated to us], then this is accepted, correct.

And secondly: What they [the people of the book] have narrated, then this does not escape from three situations:

  • The first situation: That our legislation testifies to its falsity, it is obligatory upon us to hold it as false and to reject it.

  • The second situation: That whose truthfulness our legislation testifies to, so we accept it as true and accept it due to the witness of our legislation over it.

  • The third situation: What is neither from this (the first) or that (the second), it is obligatory upon us to withhold, because they do not believe, and [thus] in their report (khabar) there will occur lying, change, addition and decrease.
