The Heavenly Quran (Arabic: أمّ الکتاب‎, translit. umm al-kitāb, lit. 'mother of the Book'[1]), according to a common Islamic belief, is a primordial version of the Quran, mentioned in Surah 43:4 and referred in Surah 85:22, that resides in heaven, distinct from the earthly Quran.[2][3] It is disputed whether the revealed Quran is a precise copy of the Heavenly Quran or an abridged version. Commonly, Injil and the Islamic notion of Torah are thought to be part of the Heavenly Quran.[1][4]
