About The Holy Qur’an
The Holy Qur’an is the sacred book of Muslims. Muslims believe it contains the direct word of God. It was revealed in classical Arabic 1435 years ago, by The Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad, who could not read or write.
In Islam, The Qur’an is referred to as the ‘Supreme Authority’, offering a guidance to individuals, families and nations.
It is a living source of all teaching, setting out the creed, rituals, ethics and laws of the Islamic way of life. It is undoubtedly the greatest literary masterpiece in the Arabic language.
The first surah, (chapter) of the Qur’an is Surat-al-Fatiha (The Opening). This is an essential part of the Muslim prayer. It is recited in prayer many times a day in Arabic, regardless of the person’s mother tongue.
The Qur’an is always treated with respect, never laid on the floor or read when one is unclean.
