r'an: The Qur'an is the sacred book in Ilsam. It is considered the actual word of God revealed to Prophet Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel. The word Qur'an means recitation in Arabic. The Qur'an was revealed in the Arabic language, and thus Arabic became the language of Islam. Since the revelations, the Qur'an has remained unchanged and is considered to be the guide for all Muslims in their daily life. Muslims believe that the Qur'an represents God's last and complete message to mankind, restating and elaborating the message of the previous prophets such as Moses, Abraham, David, and Jesus. It is made up of 114 suras, or chapters. Each sura has a name, such as "The Heights," "The Repentance," "Abraham," or "The Pilgrimage." The chapters are not ordered chronologically, but rather by length, with the longest chapter first. The Qur'an is considered by Muslims to be the most important book in the world. As a result, they treat copies of the Qur'an with the utmost respect.
Hadith: The Hadith is a compilation of the practices, traditions, and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Along with the Qur'an, it is considered a guide for Muslims to better understand and practice their religion. It is important for Muslims to follow the examples of the Prophet, who is considered the best role model of what a Muslim should be.
