The Quran
The Quran contains the spoken words of Allah. The Quran is revealed in the Arabic language and it is noted for its inimitable excellent language. It has 114 chapters which are not chronologically arranged. The different pronouncements by the Prophet at different intervals were recorded and arranged in their present form by orders of Caliph Uthman (645-656). The prophet was not a man of letters. Therefore, the utterances in the Quran are considered to be genuine speech of God himself.

The QuranThe Quran is the most sacred books of the Muslims, which they strive to learn by heart and refer to it for all teachings about God, Angels, the Prophet, Resurrection, and the day of reckoning and the theory of heaven and hell. The Quran contains the final and definite revelation of God`s will for the guidance of man. It is the foundation of the whole Islamic structure.

The Quran has taught man to believe that God had chosen him as his messenger Muhammad began to preach what God had revealed to him. The simple and clear-cut message of Islam, that there is no God but Allah, and that life should be lived in complete submission to the will of Allah, was attractive to many people, and they flocked to hear it.

The QuranMuhammad`s popularity was seen as threatening by the people in power in Mecca, and Muhammad took his followers on a journey from Mecca to Medina in 622. This journey is called the Hijrah (migration) and the event was seen as so important for Islam that 622 is the year in which the Islamic calendar begins.So the Quran clearly states the importance of the Hijra.

Muslims are those who declare that there is no deity except Allah which means God in Arabic and that Muhammad is His messenger. They submit fully in obedience to Allah and mould their lives according to the teachings of the Holy Quran and prophet Muhammad.
