The Quran literally means “the recitation”, it is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God. Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to our prophet Muhammed through the Angel Jibril (Gabriel). The Quran is used to worship our God and hope our awaiting destination after our death is heaven. The Quran can be studied by any Muslim who has the ability to read it. The Quran is made like any other book but the Quran itself has a very powerful meaning!You're probably wondering why I choose this item that is presented in front of you. I found this object most appropriate to discuss because it reminds me of my grandfather who is no longer in this in universe. My father is the one that is attached to this unique Quran. This memento was a gift to my father from his father when he was a teenager for accomplishing his ambition. My father immigrated to U.S. in the year 2009 along with his father’s gift. Years, months, weeks, days,hours, minutes, and seconds have passed but my father’s love for his father will never stop.My grandfather has passed away but we will always be connected by heart. As I examine the delicate pages I can envision my grandfather reading this Quran. I miss you grandfather! Please come back!
