Tablet (religious)
For other meanings please see Tablet (disambiguation)
A tablet, in the religious context, is a term traditionally used for religious texts.
Moses brought the Ten Commandments from Mount Sinai in the form of two stone tablets. Muslims believe that the divine destiny is when God wrote down in the Preserved Tablet ("al-Lawhu 'l-Mahfuz") all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written. The term is also used as part of the title of many shorter works of Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Bahá'í Faith, and his son and successor 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
