Muslims believe that the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, was revealed to Muhammad over a period of twenty-three years, starting with the initial revelation at Mount Hira. After the Prophet’s death, his successors compiled these divine revelations in a manuscript.
The Qur’an contains prayers, moral guidance, historical narrative, and promises of Paradise.
