The Noble Qur’an is the final revelation of the Will of Almighty Allah to all of mankind, which was conveyed through the Angel Gabriel, in Arabic, to the Prophet Muhammad (May the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him) in its sound, word and meaning over a period of 23 years.
The Qur’an (sometimes spelled Koran) was written down during the Prophet’s lifetime and memorised verbatim. It has been publicly and continually recited until the present day, therefore it has been perfectly preserved. The language of the Qur’an, Arabic, is still a living language to millions of people, so the Qur’an is still read in its original language by millions of people. Even today there are millions of people who have memorised the entire Qur’an, some as young as 3.
Prophet Muhammad (May the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him) was the last and final prophet and messenger that Allah sent to humanity. Muhammad explained, interpreted and lived the teachings of Islam.
