Koran, Quran, al-Qur'an, Booknoun
the sacred writings of Islam revealed by God to the prophet Muhammad during his life at Mecca and Medina
The Islamic holy book, considered to be God's message for mankind as revealed to Muhammad.
Etymology: From القرآن, definite form of قرآن, from قراءة, from قرأ, apparently after ܩܪܝܢܐ.
The Quran is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the verbatim word of God. It is widely regarded as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. Muslims believe the Quran to be verbally revealed through angel Gabriel from God to Muhammad gradually over a period of approximately 23 years beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death. Muslims regard the Quran as the main miracle of Muhammad, the proof of his prophethood and the culmination of a series of divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Adam, regarded in Islam as the first prophet, and continued with the Scrolls of Abraham, the Tawrat of Moses, the Zabur of David, and the Injil of Jesus. The Quran assumes familiarity with major narratives recounted in Jewish and Christian scriptures, summarizing some, dwelling at length on others and in some cases presenting alternative accounts and interpretations of events. The Quran describes itself as a book of guidance, sometimes offering detailed accounts of specific historical events, and often emphasizing the moral significance of an event over its narrative sequence. The Quran is used along with the hadith to interpret sharia law. During prayers, the Quran is only recited in Arabic. Verse 15:9 states that Allah will personally protect the Quran from corruption.

I would have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam, if they are not willing to reject sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran -- if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney:
I stand by what I said: This criminal is not representative of Islam. Period, i think candidates for office, particularly for president, should not demonize an entire group of Americans because of the actions of a violent criminal with a deranged view of what the Quran teaches -- and I also think it's particularly irresponsible to try and score political points off the attempted assassination of a Philadelphia police officer.
