The Qur'an is the central religious text of Islam.

< Qur'an Editions -- Qur'an Translations -- Qur'an Studies >


The Qur'an is regarded by Muslims as both divinely revealed in its unity to Muhammad (the founding prophet of Islam) around the mid-7th century CE, and normative. It is usually divided into 114 chapters or Suras of unequal (decreasing) size counting from the 2nd one. Theological proclamation (kerygma) and polemics, moral reflection and paraenesis and legal advices, naturalistic poetry and apocalyptic discourses frame its complex and rather discontinuous style. Scholars identify in the document the presence of liturgical and homiletic texts of undetermined Jewish-Christian provenance dating to the 7th and 8th centuries CE and later haggadic and halakhic logia assembled by the early Islamic community between the mid-8th and the early 9th centuries.
