You alone we worship, and to You alone we turn for help. Guide us to the straight path, The path of those whom You have favored, Not of those who have incurred Your wrath, Nor of those who have gone astray. (1) This passage is a perfect example of how their must be an enormous amount of love, honor and respect for their god, Allah.

This story of creation is very similar to the story written in the book of Genesis with slight differences. However, in both stories, pride was the reason for its fall. Again, the Quran 11:1-25 touches on many important themes described in the previous paragraphs. First of all, Muslims are obligated to “worship none other than God” (Quran 11:2).
As "final," Islam is God's final revelation of prophetic religion, in fulfillment of all that had preceded. Moses was given the Law; David was given the Psalms; Jesus was given the Gospel. Judaism offers God's message of justice, and Christianity proclaims the love of God. To Mohammed (570-632 A.D.; spelled in a variety of ways) the God of Abraham and Jesus revealed the Qur'an (Arabic for "recital," sometimes written Koran). The Qur'an, written in Arabic, is the Sacred Scripture of Islam, the perfection of all previous divine revelations, and is to be understood literally as the direct words of God.
The word Qur'an literally means "reading or recitation." One directly experiences the Qur’anic revelation by reciting it. The origin of the Qur’an began with a revelation given to the Prophet Muhammad by Allah (God). More revelations continuously came throughout the course of Muhammad’s life to which all were written and compiled together to make the Qur’an. The book serves as an inspirational and religious guidance for Muslim followers as it speaks of doctrines and rules primarily conveying the Word of God.
In the Jihad against these uprisings, a considerable lot of the friends (about 700) of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) who had learned Quran by heart were martyred. The Caliph Abu-Bakr (RA) felt the need of classifying the whole Qur'an and following up on a proposition from Companion Umar (RA), Abu-Bakr (RA) asked Zaid ibn Thabit (RA) to set up a sensible duplicate of the entire content of the Quran in the state of a book. Zaid ibn Thabit was the best qualified individual for this work since he had gone about as an amanuensis to the Holy Prophet (PBUH), and was one of the Companions who had gain the Holy Quran straightforwardly from him. Besides, he was likewise present on the event when the Holy Prophet discussed the entire of the finished Holy Quran to holy messenger Jibraiel
They are the divine revelations of Allah to his prophets which include Abraham’s scrolls, Psalms, the Torah, the Gospel, and the Quran. Muslims believe that Muhammad was the last prophet after Jesus and the prophets in the Hebrew Scriptures. The whole universe is governed and controlled completely by Allah.

It is believed that peace is upon all of the prophets. But God's final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing- up of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad through Gabriel.

Muslims believe that by cutting oneself off from worldly comforts, even for a short period of time, a fasting person gains true sympathy with those who go hungry as well as growth in one's spiritual life.The annual pilgrimage also known as the Hajj to Makkah is an obligation only for those who are physically and financially able to perform it.
The Qur’an is believe to the ultimate source of God by many Muslim believers. It contains 114 suras for the believers as the core practices of the Islamic religion and Muslims throughout the world recites its verses (Chang, Lecture. 1/21/14). They believed the prophet of Allah was Muhammad, who received the words of Allah through Angel Gabriel, and was passed on with the Qur’an during Ramadan. Angel Gabriel one night came to Muhammad “in clear human form” (“Scripture and Tradition in Islam- The Qur’an and Hadith” 104), and gave the messages from Allah to him.
The core of the Islamic religion is the Quran, which is a book that is believed by the Muslim to be the final revelation of their god, Allah. Muhammad, the prophet of Allah was given the word of Allah through the Angel Gabriel. Muhammad memorized it and dictated it to his companions. They later memorized it, wrote it down, and reviewed it with Muhammad. Muhammad reviews the Quran with the Angel Gabriel annually.
But, I do believe that reading is the key to success, power and closer to Allah. Then, I remember what Allah said in the Quran verse Az-Zumar ayah 9: Say: “Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know?
