The Qur’an “the recitation”; Muslims usually refer to it as القرآن الكريم al-Quran al-Karim “The Noble Qur’an”; also transliterated as Quran, Koran, and Al-Quran) is the central religious text of Islam. Muslims believe the Quran to be the book of divine guidance and direction for mankind, consider the text in its original Arabic, to be the literal word of Allah revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (P) over a period of twenty-three years, and view the Quran as God’s final revelation to humanity.Muslims regard the Quran as a continuation of other divine messages that started with those revealed to Adam (P) — regarded, in Islam, as the first prophet — and including the Suhuf-i-Ibrahim (Scrolls of Abraham), the Tawrat (Torah), the Zabur (Psalms), and the Injil (Gospel), in between. The aforementioned books are recognized in the Quran, and the Quranic text assumes familiarity with many events from Jewish and Christian scriptures, retelling some of these events in distinctive ways, and referring obliquely to others. It rarely offers detailed accounts of historical events; the Quran’s emphasis is typically on the moral significance of an event, rather than its narrative sequence.

The Quranic text itself proclaims a divine protection of its message:

“Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian.” (Qur’an 15:9)
