The Holy Qur-an (Koran) (Arabic and English)

Tradition holds that during the last decades of Muhammad’s life he received a series of revelations from the angel Gabriel. Muhammad was instructed to repeat these revelations to his community as warnings or instructions from God. During Muhammad’s lifetime, the Qur’an existed primarily in oral form, and was not written down and standardized until after Muhammad’s death. Because every word in the Qur’an was a message from God to Muhammad, many believe that the Qur’an exists only in Arabic, and that any translation is an interpretation of the Qur’an, and not the Qur’an itself..
