Qur’an

The Qur’an; unique among scriptures and is undoubtedly the most-read book in the world. The Qur’an was revealed by Allah Almighty to prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (PBUH) in the seventh century CE, and revered by Muslims as being Allah’s final scripture or last testament. Noble words of the Qur’an have been lovingly recited, memorized and translated by Muslims of every nationality ever since.

The faithful Muslims are inspired, consoled and often moved to tears as their hearts are touched by its eloquence and poetic imagery, especially when recited during the month of Ramadan aloud during prayers. And yet, the Qur’an is unique in being the only scripture that is free of scientific inaccuracies, whose historical authenticity has been meticulously verified. The Qur’anic text has been so carefully preserved that just one authorized version exists in its original language (Arabic). It is estimated that 10 million people across the globe memorize the Qur’an word for word.
