The Koran

Muslims believe the Koran was verbally revealed by God to the Prophet Muhammad in Arabic through the angel Gabriel over a period of approximately 23 years Muslims regard koranic revelations as the sacred word of God, intended to correct any errors in previous holy books such as the Old and New Testaments. The Koran (Quran, Qu'ran) is one of the most influential books in the history of literature and recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, it is the supreme authority and living source of all Islamic teaching - the sacred text that sets out the creed, rituals, ethics and laws of Islam. It has been called 'a glorious symphony' that moves men and women to ecstasy and awe.
