The Quran: A Basic Overview
The Quran is the primary reference used in the Islamic religion and deals with topics that concern humans and include doctrine, worship, law, and wisdom. However, the major theme of the content is the relationship of Allah with His creatures. At the same time, the Quran provides detailed teachings and guidelines for living with fairness, directives that espouse a fair economic system and proper conduct.
Muhammad and His Influence in the Development of Islam
Historically, the Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad only in Arabic. The prophet was born in the year 570 in Maddah. Because his father died before he was born and his mother died shortly after giving birth, his uncle cared for him. Muhammad did not learn to read or write and remained illiterate until his death. Most people during Muhammad’s time could not read or write.
An Inspirational Leader
During his life, the prophet was known to be honest, sincere, and generous. In fact, he was so trustworthy that he was called by that name.
How the Quran Was Revealed
Muhammad did not like the idolatry that was part of his society at the time. When he was 40 years old, Muhammad received his initial revelation from Allah. This revelation was communicated by the angel Gabriel. Afterwards, revelations continued for a period of 23 years. These revelations are collectively called the Quran.
The Beginning of the Muslim Calendar
When Muhammad started reciting the Quran and preaching Allah’s truth as it was revealed to him, he and his followers were severely persecuted. In fact, the persecution reached the point where he and his followers left Makkah to settle in Madinah, which was 418 kilometres to the north. This migration is notable as it marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar.
The Spread of Islam
After some time, Muhammad and his fellow believers returned to Maddah, where they forgave their tormentors. Before the prophet died at 63 years of age, most of the Arabian Peninsula was practicing Islam. One hundred years after Muhammad’s death, Islam had spread to such countries as China and Spain.
