Holy Qur'an (3)

The Holy Qur'an is the earliest work in Arabic prose. The language of the Holy Qur'an is of outstanding beauty and is considered to be the direct utterance of Allah. It teaches that there is only one God, that God is above all comprehension and that, in relation to God, the right path is total submission (Islam) to the will of the Creator. It avers that there is a day of judgment for all, when the righteous shall be rewarded and the unjust punished.

Because of its divine origin, the Holy Qur'an is treated with great reverence by all Muslims.
