The Quran (or Qur'an or Koran), one of the world's most influential religious books, is now available as an eBook.
The Koran, the holy scripture of Islam, is the record of Muhammad's oral teaching. Muslims believe the Quran to be verbally revealed through angel Jibrīl (Gabriel) from God to Muhammad gradually over a period of approximately 23 years beginning in 610 CE, when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death
The Koran occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world. It has exerted tremendous influence upon the history of mankind. Apart from its specifically religious content, inspiring the triumphant arms of Islam throughout vast areas of Asia, Africa, and southern Europe, it was the starting point of a new literary and philosophical movement. This powerfully affected the most cultivated minds among both Christians and Jews in the Middle Ages, and the movement has resulted in some of the finest products of genius and learning.
The Muslim religion, based on the tenants of the Koran, is currently having a profound influence on geopolitical and religious makeup of the world, yet many in the west still have no understanding of this important religion.
The Quran is composed of verses (Ayah) that make up 114 chapters (suras) of unequal length which are classified either as Meccan or Medinan depending upon their place and time of revelation.
