Short Introduction to the Quran The Quran (Quran, Koran) is the Holy Book of Islam and the religion's most sacred writing. The word itself means "recitation." It is a series of "revelations" that Muhammad claimed to have received from Allah at various - often highly convenient - times in his life and then dictated to scribes. The book is divided into 114 Suras (chapters) that contain ayat (verses).
