What is the Qur'an?
The Qur'an is a complete record of the exact words revealed by God through Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad.
The Qur'an is the principal source of every Muslim's faith and practice. It deals with all subjects that concern us as human beings - wisdom, doctrine, worship and law - but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures.
At the same time the Qur'an provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and equitable economic principles.
Apart from the Qur'an, Muslims also refer to the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as a secondary source of guidance.
Belief in the sunnah, the practice and example of the Prophet, is an integral part of the Islamic faith.
