Injīl (Arab., from Gk., euangelion, ‘gospel’, via Ethiopic). In the Qurʾān, the revelation given to ʿĪsā/Jesus, or a book given to him, or the scripture in the possession of the Christians. The fact that the actual gospels do not correspond with the Qurʾān is explained by the theory of ‘corruption’ (see TAḤRĪF).
