The Qur'an is not about any one person but is considered a source of guidance from God to humankind. However, much of the Qur'an directly addresses the Prophet Muhammed, or relates events that happened to him and his followers, without mentioning his name (such as in Chapters Muzzamil, Muddathir, Dhuha, Inshirah and Ya-Sin).  Since the Qur'an was revealed after Jesus and previous prophets, part of the guidance conveyed by the Qur'an is related through the stories and teachings about these earlier prophets. The most frequently mentioned story in the Qur'an is the story of Moses and his liberation of the Children of Israel. The miracles of Jesus, Moses, David, Abraham and all the other prophets are mentioned in the Qur'an as well.
