A tablet, in the religious context, is a term traditionally used for certain religious texts.[citation needed]

Hebrew Bible[edit]

Judaism and Christianity maintain that Moses brought the Ten Commandments down from Mount Sinai in the form of two Tablets of Stone. According to the Book of Exodus, God delivered the tablets twice, the first set having been smashed by Moses in his anger at the idol-worship of the Israelites.


Islam believes in the Qadar when God wrote down in the Predestination in Islam (al-Lawhu 'l-Mahfuz) all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written.

Bahá'í Faith[edit]

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.[1]
