About Quran: A short and brief introduction to the Holy Quran (Qoran, Koran or Kuran)


To Muslims, or followers of Islam, the Quran is the actual Word of God, it is the verbal revelation to His Messenger, and it was written down as it was revealed to him. While was still alive, Muhammad (pbuh), as instructed and commanded by God, arranged and organized Quran in chapters and verses in the same way we find it today.

Throughout history, there has never been an area in the whole world that has been colonized by a foreign power like the Middle East. Yet neither colonization nor people could change even one word in the original Arabic text since it was originally written. Nothing has been taken out and nothing has been added to it. It is obvious that we can not say that the Quran stayed intact -without a single change- all these years because of Muslims, people, presidents or kings, and most certainly not by the foreign invaders, rather, because of its holiness and by the power of ALLAH.

The Quran we have today anywhere in the world in any language, is the same 1400 years old Quran, which you will find in the early hand written originals in the museum in Saudi Arabia. It has 114 chapters with the same number of verses.
