The Quran, the sacred text of Islam, is believed to be the Word of God as revealed to the Prophet (PBUH).

The Quran is Islam’s sacred text, written in the Arabic language. The Qur’an is said to contain the literal word of God and was revealed to Muhammad by the Archangel Gabriel. The Qur’an is also regarded as the preeminent literary masterpiece of the Arabic language, as well as one of the earliest known Arabic literary sources, due to its distinctive composition and style. Its contents, which are organized around the central idea of God’s unity and transcendence, serve as the foundations for Islam’s doctrinal doctrines and beliefs.

The historical context of Islam’s development was Arabia in the 7th century C.E. Muhammad was a merchant who was born in the Arabian Peninsula’s western part, in the oasis city of Mecca. The Ka’bah, a cube-shaped edifice at the heart of the Meccan sanctuary, was reportedly built by Abraham and his son Ismael for the worship of one true God, according to the Qur’an (Q. 2. 127).
