The Quran (Koran), literally "to recite" is the central prophetic text of Islam. It is a text of wisdom said to have been revealed (i.e. Channeled) to Muhammad from God. Chapters in Quran are called suras and verses are called ayahs. The Quran consists of 114 sura each of which consists of several ayahs.

As in Christianity, interpretation of Quranic suras is typically left up to a Tafsir (i.e. Priests).

Like the Christian Gospels, Muhammad had several "companions" who followed him around and wrote down the things that he said.

Compare Quran to Hadith.
