Our work on the Qur'an involved a lot of teacher input as our children were considered to be too young to do any in- depth research themselves. This is information you may wish to use :
Qur'an means "readings or recitations".
Muhammad (PBUH) is believed to be the messenger chosen by God to record and deliver His Holy Word.
Muhammad (PBUH) (born 570CE) could neither read nor write so the words were written for him by his companions on parchment, palm leaves and bones.
Allah (PBUH) himself is believed to have guaranteed its preservation.
Companions of Muhammad (PBUH) memorised the Qur'an and the prophet himself recited it to the Angel Gabriel (who delivered the Word to Muhammad in the first place), once a year and twice in the year of his death(650CE).
