    Tahrif

    Corruption of a text. The term does not occur in the Quran, but three verses claim that people have tampered with the sacred texts (2:75; 4:46; 5:13; 5:41). Tahrif is generally understood as a charge that previous religious communities, through actual textual alteration or through false interpretation, have expunged references to the advent of Muhammad contained in the Hebrew Bible and the Gospels. The term also is used to refer to the Shii charge that parts of the Quran in which Ali 's authority is given divine sanction have been removed.
