Is Nâmûs/Nomos Gabriel or Torah? On the Concept of Nâmûs in Bed'u'l-Vahy Hadith

The concept of nâmûs has come to be understood as referring to Gabriel in the Islamic hadith literature, since Bukhari's identification of it with Gabriel. However, aside from the hadith commentaries and siyer books, the concept refers to two things: the first is Gabriel in the context of revelation; the second is law in general, and nomos, as the Greek translation of the term Torah, in particular.
