The Holy Qur’an is the book for which all Muslims are to be guided and instructed on how to live. It is the main source from which all Muslims derive instruction and guidance for their lives. Indeed it states in the Qur’an “This is a book, in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear G’d”.
The Holy Qur’an is the word of G’d; revelation sent from the Almighty to His final prophet, Muhammad (peace and blessings be on him), over 1,400 years ago. This revelation is the last in the line of books sent down by G’d, along with the Torah (sent to Moses (upon him be peace)) and the Injil (sent to Jesus (upon him be peace)). Therefore, the Qur’an is a confirmation, correction, and clarification of all previous revealed books sent before it.
