It is mentioned that once, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Abbas – may Allah be pleased with them – asked Hadrat Sayyiduna Wahb – may Allah be pleased with him – the following questions.

 

“How many Books has the Allah Almighty revealed?”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Wahb – may Allah be pleased with him – replied, “One hundred and four Books.”

 

He inquired, “How many of these Books were taken away?”

 

He replied, “There were twelve Books which were taken away.”

 

He then asked, “How many Books have you managed to read?”

 

He replied, “Whatever remained, I have managed to read those Books.”
