The Qu'ran is the holy book of Islam and is comprised of the sayings of the prophet Muhammad during his lifetime. It is comprised of 114 chapters known as sutras which are divided into rhymed verses. Its language iis quite lyrical and beautiful It not only contains the basis of the Five Pillars of Islam but also contains rules for daily living for devout Muslims. As with other religious texts, it was subject to a great deal of interpretation; a standardized version was not published until 1924. Part of the difficulty is that much of it was not reduced to writing during Muhammad's lifetime; therefore there has been some debate about the true interpretation of some passages. The standardized version is always written in Arabic, although there are translations which are considered to be "interpretations" of the Qu'ran. It is used as are most religious texts as a rule and guide for those who follow its precepts. Millions of Muslims read it daily for guidance and inspiration.
