ٱلۡقُرۡءَانَ لِلذِّكۡرِ فَهَلۡ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ۬ (٣٢)
And indeed, We have made the Qur'ân easy to understand and remember, then is there any who will remember (or receive admonition)? (Al Qur'an 54:32)
The Quran (/kɔːrˈɑːn/ or kor-AHN; Arabic: القرآن, romanized: al-Qurʼān Arabic pronunciation: [alqur'ʔaːn], literally meaning "the recitation"), also romanized Qur'an or Koran, is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Allah). It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature. Slightly shorter than the New Testament, it is organized in 114 chapters (Arabic: سورة sūrah, plural سور sur) — not according to chronology or subject matter, but according to length of surahs (with some exceptions). Surah are subdivided into verses (Arabic: آية āyah, plural آيات āyāt).
Muslims believe that the Qur'an was orally revealed by Allaah to the final prophet, Muhammad, through the archangel Gabriel (Jibril), incrementally over a period of some 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Qur'an as Muhammad's most important miracle, a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of divine messages starting with those revealed to Adam, including the Tawrah (Torah), the Zabur ("Psalms") and the Injil ("Gospel"). The word Qur'an occurs some 70 times in the Qur'an's text, and other names and words are also said to refer to the Quran. It is thought by Muslims to be not simply divinely inspired, but the literal word of Allah.
Muhammad did not write Qur'an as he didn't know how to write. According to tradition, several of Muhammad's companions served as scribes and recorded the revelations. Shortly after his death, the Qur'an was compiled by the companions, who had written down or memorized parts of it. Caliph Uthman established a standard version, now known as the Uthmanic codex, which is generally considered the archetype of the Qur'an known today.
