ALWAH ألواح
pl. of Lauh “The tables (of the Law). Mentioned in the Qur’an, Surah vii. 142, “We wrote for him (Moses) upon the Tables (al-Alwah) a monition concerning every matter.”
Muslim divines are not agreed as to the number either of the tables, or of the Commandments. The commentators Jalalain say they were either seven or ten. [TEN COMMANDMENTS.]
