Al-Quran al-Kareem (/kɔːrˈɑːn/[a] kor-ahn; Arabic: لکریم‎‎ القرآن‎‎ al-Qurʾān al-Kareem, literally meaning "the recitation") is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from Allah swt (Arabic: سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ ‎الله‎‎, Allah). It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature. The Quran Kareem is divided into chapters (surah in Arabic), which are then divided into verses (ayah).
