(Fatwa: 1110/636/D=1432)

The copies of Taurah, Zabur and Injeel that exist today are distorted. You should not keep it with you. Hadhrat Umar Farooq (رضى الله عنه) is reported to have found a copy of Taurah; he visited the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) along with it and started reading it. The signs of anger appeared on the holy face of the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Hadhrat Siddiq Akbar (رضى الله عنه) also was present in the same meeting. He drew the attention of Hadhrat Umar (رضى الله عنه) towards it, then he stopped at once. The holy Propeht Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “If Musa (عليه السلام) were alive at my time of Prophethood, he, too, would have followed me.”
ولو كان حيا وأدرك نبوتي لاتبعني رواه الدارمي (مشكوة ص: 32 ، باب الاعتصام بالكتاب والسنة)
Now there is no need of previous books when Islam appeared with Quran and hadith, because all the previous books are abrogated as well as distorted. Hence, you should gift it to any authentic institution so that the experts of Shariah may use it for debate and dawah purposes.
