What is the Quran?

The Qur'an is a compilation of the words revealed by God through the angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh). It was memorized by Muhammed (pbuh) and then dictated to his companions, written down by scribes, who crosschecked it during his lifetime. Not one word of its 114 chapters has changed over the centuries.

The Qur'an is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern us as human beings: morality, doctrine, worship and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures which defines our purpose for existence and the story of creation and the hereafter. At the same time, it provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system.
