Taḥrīf (Arab., ‘corruption’). In Islam, an alteration of the written words, alteration when reading aloud, omission from or addition to the text, or wrong interpretation of an unaltered text. The charge, originally made against the Jews, was extended to the Christians also, of having somehow changed their scriptures (Tawrāt and Injīl respectively).
