Eye Witness Books
In the year 610, the archangel Gabriell appeared to the Prophet Muhhamad and through Gabrieal, Allah began to reveal the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam. This continued for 22 years. Muslims believe the Qur'an, Allah's final revelation to humanity, completes the sacred writings of the Jews and Christains, but is on a higher level because its text consists of Allah's actual words. Ever since the Qur'an was revealed, muslims have preserved its words, first learning them by heart, and later also writing them down. They aim to live by the Qur'an.
