The Qur’an is a record of the divine revelations — the direct word of God in Arabic — Muslims believed Muhammad received over the course of many years. The name comes from the Arabic verb qurra, and means “that which is recited.” It was not compiled until after his death, and the verses do not occur in the order they were revealed to him. The language is sometimes direct, sometimes poetic, and frequently makes reference to the broader Abrahamic tradition.
