Study the Qur’an’s structure and contents, noting how the message of faith—revolutionary for its time—is spread throughout the suras (chapters). Read the beautiful poetry, explore the Qur’an’s major themes, and consider how its stories compare to the same stories as told in the Old Testament of the Bible.
