Facts About The Holy Quran

None of the Torah or the Bible exist in their original form as revealed to Moses and Jesus.
However, the Arabic text of the Qur’an contains no flaws or contradictions and has not been altered since its revelation.

Actual 7th century Qur’ans, complete and intact, are on display in museums in Turkey and other places around the world.

The revelation started in the Holy month of The Holy Ramadan

If all Qur’ans in the world today were destroyed, the original Arabic would still remain. This is because millions of Muslims, called “hafiz” (or “guardians”) have memorized the text letter for letter from beginning to end, every word and every syllable. Also, chapters from the Qur’an are precisely recited from memory in each of the five formal prayers performed daily by hundreds of millions of Muslims throughout the world.

Prophet (PBUH) was 40 years old when the first verse of Quran was revealed to Him.

The Quran was orally revealed by God to the final prophet, Muhammad, through the archangel Gabriel (Jibril), incrementally over a period of some 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Muhammad was 40; and concluding in 632, the year of his death.
