For Muslims, the Qur’an is the most sacred text and contains ultimate guidance for all humankind.
It is just as relevant today as it was when it was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad - Allah’s most important spokesman - by the angel Jibril. Muslims believe that the Angel Jibril revealed the word of Allah to the Prophet who passed it on to his followers.
The Qur’an contains guidance for Muslims on the nature of Allah.
Key beliefs about God include:
The Qur’an contains 99 names for Allah. These help Muslims to understand what Allah is like, eg the Creator, Eternal and the Most Merciful.
Some Muslims believe that there are 100 names but only 99 of them have been given to human beings. This means that humans can never fully understand Allah.
