What is the Qur’an?

The Qur’an is the constitution of the Muslims from which they derive the teachings which organize both their religious and everyday affairs. It differs from the previous Divine Books in the following ways:

  • It is the last Divine Book which was revealed, and for that reason, Allah, the Exalted, promised to protect it from any distortion until the Last Day.
    Allah says:
    Indeed, it is We who have sent down the revelation and indeed, it is We Who are its Guardian (15:9)

  • The Qur’an includes all the legislations which reform society and that guarantee happiness for all in its implementation.

  • The Qur’an has documented the stories of the Prophets and Messengers, and what happened between them and their peoples, from Adam till Muhammad

  • It was revealed to all of humankind so that they would live a life of peace and happiness, and to take them out of darkness and bring them into the light.

  • Reciting, memorizing and teaching it are acts of worship.
