Looking into other scriptures

Q:

1. What if we come across something from the books of other religions, if it's not in the Quran or Hadith, what should we do? Should we neither confirm nor deny it?

2, Also, is it correct to believe that absolutely nothing in the Books is in its true form exactly as it was revealed to the other Prophets? Like there is not a single verse in the Holy Books that is in its original form now.

A: For people like you, you should not be looking at other scriptures. Overall, the rule is that we believe in all the scriptures that were revealed to us and to the Ambiyaa (alaihimus salaam) exactly as they were revealed and not in their present distorted form.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
