The '''''Qur'an''''' is a [[SacredLiterature holy text]] of [[UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} the Islamic faith]], the first and smallest text in the Islamic trilogy with the Sira[[note]]The stories of Muhammad's life, basically biographies.[[/note]] and the Hadiths[[note]]The collected words and actions of Muhammad[[/note]] being the other eighty four percent of it. The Qur'an differs from the Jewish and Christian Bible, in that the work is not a collection of various other works, but rather a collection of sayings in verse attributed to Allah/God given to TheProphetMuhammad via the ArchangelGabriel. Think of it as ''God: The Collected Poems'', or perhaps as the Psalms of Islam.

** The way it says a man is allowed to beat his disobedient wife doesn't mean he can punch her in the face just because she didn't want to make him tea. Disobedient is meant by, not cooking for her husband and children, not taking care of them while the man is at work, along with other things. There's are the 'beating', it stated that while yes a man can beat his wife, he is to use a cane on either her foot or buttocks. Not that he can punch her like an an abusive jerk.

* AncientRome: There is a whole ''surah'' (chapter) titled ''Rome'', foretelling the victory of the monotheistic Romans against the polytheistic Sassanid Empire of Persia. It should be noted that the Sassanids did not consider themselves polytheists; despite recognizing several figures worthy of worship they only recognized one of them as God. Still, this "ascribing of false partners" was unacceptable to Muhammad.

** That being said, there are some texts which say that he weeps during the Hajj, as he regrets not taking advantage of God's forgiveness when he could, while mankind is able to do it all the time.

* ContinuityNod: So, so many, toward Injil[[labelnote:*]][[Literature/TheFourGospels]]--the theory being either (1) that the ''Injil'' was a literal book sent to Jesus that was copied and mistranscribed by later Christians as the Gospels, or (2) taking elements of the Christian view, that Jesus ''himself'' was the Word/Book, whose words and deeds were copied and later mistranscribed as the Gospels.[[/labelnote]] and Taurat[[labelnote:*]][[Literature/TheBible TheTorah]][[/labelnote]]. In fact, it's stated in The Qur'an itself that one of its purposes is to give ContinuityNod to the aforementioned books, so as to give good news to the faithfuls.

* AndIMustScream: The fate of people cast down to Hell(s). You burn for eternity, drink boiling hot water, and eat horrible fruit ('demon head'). Once your entire skin is burned up, Allah will it that another layer be grown so you can burn again. Verse 87:13 says succinctly: "Therein he does not die, neither does he live."

* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: Go there and back again, actually. Muhammad was called to an audience with Allah, received the order for ''salah'' (daily prayers, said five times a day), and then return to the world so he could bring the order to the Muslims. On his way he met prophets of ancient times such as Musa. Musa actually told Muhammad to renegotiate the order, because ''50 times a day'' would be too difficult.

* DealWithTheDevil: You can make a deal with djinns to cast spell upon your enemies, but it's a very grave sin. It doesn't help that the aforementioned djinns tend to have [[AGodAmI god-complex]], which is yet another offense to Allah.
