Dear Dr. Shabbir,

(So good to see you on the forum, and hope you are not over-exerting yourself. :) )

I think this may have come up before in our personal correspondence, but as a reminder, in British English, 'judgement' can include the 'e'. :)

I believe you and GA Parwez are both right. I checked at Wikipedia, and there it says:

"The Torah (English pronunciation: /ˈtɔːrə/; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה‎‎, "Instruction", "Teaching") is the Jewish name for the first five books of the Jewish Bible: Bereshit (in Latin, Genesis), Shemot (Exodus), Vayikra (Leviticus), Bamidbar (Numbers) and Devarim (Deuteronomy). In rabbinic literature the word Torah denotes both these five books, Torah Shebichtav (תורה שבכתב, "Torah that is written"), and an Oral Torah, Torah Shebe'al Peh (תורה שבעל פה, "Torah that is spoken"). The Oral Torah consists of the traditional interpretations and amplifications handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation and now embodied in the Talmud (תַּלְמוּד) and Midrash (מדרש‎)."

So it seems there is an oral element to the Torah.

Wa Salaam
