Quran or Koran (Arabic:. القرآن, translucent al-Qur'ān, lit. "the recitation") is the holy book of Islam. Muslims believe (AO 1943: believe) that the Koran is the literal word of God (Allah) revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (Muhammad) over a period of twenty-three years. The Quran word derived from the Arabic verb meaning recite or chant; Quran is therefore a "recitation" or something that should be recited.
Muslims can refer to the Quran using a title that denotes respect, as Al-Karim ("the Noble") or Al-Azim ("the Magnificent").
It is one of the most read books in the world and published. It is common practice in most Muslim societies that the Qur'an is not sold, but given.
