Holy Qur'an (2)

The Holy Qur'an is the basis for the faith of every Muslim and his guide to living. It provides guidelines for personal conduct within a just society. It provides guidance on all aspects of life, covering personal, social, military and legal matters, as well as religion.

For one fifth of the world's population, Islam is then a way of life, as well as a religion. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the holy land of Islam, charged with guardianship of the two holiest sites of Makkah and Madinah, plays a central role in the world of Islam.
