Quran is considered as the word of God. It is kept in original form since it was written. Muslims believe in Quran is the holly book and it will be protected by God till end. Quran is called as “The Quran or The Qur’an” because it is unique. There is only one Quran and even the translations are not considered as Quran. Believer of an Islam is called Muslim in general, ladies are called Muslima or Muslimah.

Muslims believe that God is the only One and Incomparable to anyone else. The purpose of existence is to learn and serve God. Learning includes not only theological way but also science too. Muslims also believe that Islam is the name of all the belief systems sent by God. Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed at many times and places before, including through Abraham, Moses and Jesus, whom they consider prophets. It is claimed that Buddhism is one of the religions and Buddha was prophet too. They maintain that the previous messages and revelations have been partially misinterpreted or altered over time, but consider the Quran to be both the unaltered and the final revelation of God.
