What is the Qur’an about?

The Qur’an, the last revealed word of Allah, is the primary source of every Muslim’s faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects concerning human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, transactions, law etc., but its basic theme is the relationship between the Creator and His creatures. At the same time, it provides guidelines and detailed teachings for a just society, proper human conduct, and an equitable economic system.

Note that the Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad in Arabic only. So, any Qur’anic translation, either in English or any other language, is neither a Qur’an, nor a version of the Qur’an, but rather it is only a translation of the meaning of the Qur’an. The Qur’an exists only in the Arabic in which it was revealed.
