The Qur'an comprehends the complete code for the Muslims to live a good, chaste, abundant and rewarding life in obedience to the commandments of Allah, in this life and to gain salvation in the next. It is the "chart of life" for every Muslim, and it is the "constitution" of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
The Quran (English pronunciation: /kɒˈrɑːn/ kor-AHN; Arabic: القرآن al-qurʾān, literally meaning "a recitation"), also transliterated Qur'an, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran, Kuran, and al-Qur’ān, is the central religious text of Islam, which is the verbatim word of God (Arabic: الله, Allah) and the Final Testament, following the Old and New Testaments. It is regarded widely as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. The Quran is divided into 114 Surahs or Chapters of unequal length which are classified either as Makkan or Medinan depending upon their place and time of revelation.
Quran is verbally revealed through angel Jibril (Gabriel) from God to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gradually over a period of approximately twenty-three years beginning in 610 CE, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was forty, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death. Shortly after Prophet Muhammad's death the Quran was compiled into a single book by order of the first Caliph Abu Bakr (R.A) and at the suggestion of his future successor 2nd caliph Hazrat Umar (R.A). When the third Caliph Hazrat Usman (R.A) began noticing slight differences in Arabic dialect he made several thousand copies of Quran, to standardize the text. This process of formalization is known as the "Uthmanic recension".
The Qur'an is the eternal contemporary of the Muslims. Each generation of Muslims has found new sources of strength, courage and inspiration in it. It is also, for them, a "compass" in the turbulent voyage of life, as it has explained itself in the following verses:
. . . Indeed, there has come to you light and a clear book from Allah; With it Allah guides him who fill follow His pleasure into the ways of safety and brings them out of utter darkness into light by his will and guides them to the right path. (V: 15-16)
It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It deserves the highest praise for its conceptions of Divine nature in reference to the attributes of Power, Knowledge, and Universal Providence and Unity--that its belief and trust is one God, creator of Heaven and Earth is deep and fervent, and that it embodies much of a noble and moral earnestness. It is Qur'an which transformed the simple shepherds and wandering Bedouins of Arabia into the founders of empires, the builders of cities, the collectors of libraries. If a system of religious teachings is evaluated by the changes which it introduces into the way of life, the customs and beliefs of its follower, then Qur'an as a code of life is second to none. It is not strange then, that more translations and more commentaries of the Holy Qur'an have been published than that of any other book claimed to be the Divine Revelation.
Quran is different from all other books ever existed in ways that are impossible for any other book to be, such that similar texts cannot be written by humans. The Quran itself challenges any who disagree with its divine origin to produce a text of a miraculous nature. Till the Day of Judgment no one can change even a single dot in Quranic text, that’s why all the Quranic copies around the globe contains the same original text and is unchanged for the last 1400 years. Quran’s poetic form is unique and of a fashion that cannot be written by humans. It also contains accurate prophecy and that no other book does.
