The Holy Qur'an
Revealed by Allah
The word of God. Word by word revealed to the heart of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
"This is the Book! There is no doubt about it - a guide for those mindful of Allah." (2:2)
Allah uses an intermediary (angel Gabriel) to reveal the Qur'an to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
"...Whoever is an enemy of Gabriel should know that he revealed this Qur'an to your heart..." (2:97)
To the Prophet
The infallible light of Allah (swt). The being who is described as a 'mercy' to the worlds.
"And indeed, you are of a great moral character."
A book which is preserved and untouched. Protected letter by letter from the Almighty.
"Indeed, it is We who sent down the Quran and indeed, We will be it's guardian." (15:9)
It's verses were revealed gradually to the Prophet (pbuh) in different places and at different times over a period of more than 20 years.
"... And We have revealed it by stages." (17:106)
