Muslims believe that the Qur'an is Allah's words that were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) through Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him).
The Qur'an is the word of the Ever-Living Allah. It has been sent down to guide humans for all times to come. No book can be like it. As you come to the Qur'an, Allah speaks to you.
