The Quran, also spelled as Al-Quran, is the holy scripture of Islam, believed to be the literal word of God (Allah) as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) over 23 years through the Angel Gabriel.

Composed in classical Arabic, it is divided into 114 chapters called surahs, which vary in length and cover various aspects of life, law, morality, and guidance for personal conduct.

The Quran is considered the ultimate source of authority in Islam, providing spiritual, legal, and ethical guidance for Muslims.

Its recitation is a central act of worship, and its verses are memorized, recited, and reflected upon by millions of believers worldwide.

The Quran emphasizes monotheism, the importance of following God’s commandments, and the final accountability of humans on the Day of Judgment.
