The Quran literally means 'the recitation'.

It is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God. It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. Quranic chapters are called suras and verse ayahs.

Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 AD when Muhammad was 40 and concluding in 632 AD, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophethood.

6 "Why do you not bring angels to us if you are of the truthful ones?" Quran 15:6
7 We send not the angels down except with the truth (i.e. for torment, etc.), and in that case, they (the disbelievers) would have no respite! Quran 15:7
8 Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Quran) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). Quran 15:8
9 Indeed, We sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad SAW) amongst the sects (communities) of old. Quran 15:9
10 And never came a Messenger to them but they did mock him. Quran 15:10

51 When they entered unto him, and said: Salaman (peace)! [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Indeed! We are afraid of you." Quran 15:51
52 They (the angels) said: "Do not be afraid! We give you glad tidings of a boy (son) possessing much knowledge and wisdom." Quran 15:52
53 [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "Do you give me glad tidings (of a son) when old age has overtaken me? Of what then is your news?" Quran 15:53
54 They (the angels) said: "We give you glad tidings in truth. So be not of the despairing ones." Quran 15:54
55 [Ibrahim (Abraham)] said: "And who despairs of the Mercy of his Lord except those who are astray?" Quran 15:55
56 [Ibrahim (Abraham) again] said: "What then is the business on which you have come, O Messengers?" Quran 15:56
57 They (the angels) said: "We have been sent to a people who are Mujrimun (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners). Quran 15:57

59 "Except his wife, of whom We have decreed that she shall be of those who remain behind (i.e. she will be destroyed)." Quran 15:59
60 Then, when the Messengers (the angels) came unto the family of Lout (Lot). Quran 15:60
61 He said: "Verily! You are people unknown to me." Quran 15:61
62 They said: "Nay, we have come to you with that (torment) which they have been doubting. Quran 15:62
63 "And we have brought to you the truth (the news of the destruction of your nation) and certainly, we tell the truth. Quran 15:63
64 "Then travel in a part of the night with your family, and you go behind them in the rear, and let no one amongst you look back, but go on to where you are ordered." Quran 15:64
65 And We made known this decree to him, that the root of those (sinners) was to be cut off in the early morning. Quran 15:65
66 And the inhabitants of the city came rejoicing (at the news of the young men's arrival). Quran 15:66
67 [Lout (Lot)] said: "Verily! these are my guests, so shame me not. Quran 15:67
68 "And fear Allah and disgrace me not." Quran 15:68

71 Verily, by your life (O Muhammad SAW), in their wild intoxication, they were wandering blindly. Quran 15:71
72 So As-Saihah (torment - awful cry, etc.) overtook them at the time of sunrise; Quran 15:72
73 And We turned (the towns of Sodom in Palestine) upside down and rained down on them stones of baked clay. Quran 15:73
74 Surely! In this are signs, for those who see (or understand or learn the lessons from the Signs of Allah). Quran 15:74
75 And verily! They (the cities) were right on the highroad (from Makkah to Syria i.e. the place where the Dead Sea is now). Quran 15:75

79 And verily, the dwellers of Al-Hijr (the rocky tract) denied the Messengers. Quran 15:79
80 And We gave them Our Signs, but they were averse to them. Quran 15:80
81 And they used to hew out dwellings from the mountains (feeling themselves) secure. Quran 15:81
82 But As-Saihah (torment - awful cry etc.) overtook them in the early morning (of the fourth day of their promised punishment days). Quran 15:82
83 And all that which they used to earn availed them not. Quran 15:83
84 And We created not the heavens and the earth and all that is between them except with truth, and the Hour is surely coming, so overlook (O Muhammad SAW), their faults with gracious forgiveness. [This was before the ordainment of Jihad holy fighting in Allah's Cause]. Quran 15:84
85 Verily, your Lord is the All-Knowing Creator. Quran 15:85

87 Look not with your eyes ambitiously at what We have bestowed on certain classes of them (the disbelievers), nor grieve over them. And lower your wings for the believers (be courteous to the fellow-believers). Quran 15:87
88 And say: "I am indeed a plain warner." Quran 15:88
89 As We have sent down on the dividers, (Quraish pagans or Jews and Christians). Quran 15:89
90 Who have made the Quran into parts. (i.e. believed in a part and disbelieved in the other). Quran 15:90
91 So, by your Lord (O Muhammad SAW), We shall certainly call all of them to account. Quran 15:91
92 For all that they used to do. Quran 15:92
93 Therefore proclaim openly (Allah's Message Islamic Monotheism) that which you are commanded, and turn away from Al-Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, and disbelievers, etc. - see V. 2:105). Quran 15:93
94 Truly! We will suffice you against the scoffers. Quran 15:94
95 Who set up along with Allah another ilah (god), they will come to know. Quran 15:95
96 Indeed, We know that your breast is straitened at what they say. Quran 15:96
97 So glorify the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him). Quran 15:97
98 And worship your Lord until there comes unto you the certainty (i.e. death). Quran 15:98
