The Koran. “Read in the name of your Sustainer, who created, created man from a clot. For your Sustainer is the most Bountiful One, who has taught man the use of the pen—taught man what he did not know.” (96: 1-5). http://blogs.newamericamedia.org/images/177.jpg.

Muhammad at first thought that he might be demon-possessed, but his wife told him he had been chosen as a prophet to receive The Koran, the final word from God..
During the journey from Mecca to Medina Muhammad and his converts slept the first night in a cave. Satan, in blue, led the soldiers from Mecca after them. But the cave was protected by Allah who put a spider's web and a dove's nest in front of the entrance suggesting that no one was inside.
After his first wife, Khadija, died, Muhammad married ten other wives, making a total of eleven, even though The Koran says that men cannot have more than four wives.
According to prophecies, which later became The Koran, Muslims must pray five times a day (dawn, noon, late afternoon, sunset, and before midnight), facing towards Mecca.
Since prophecies, which later became The Koran was given over 23 years, some parts contradict others, but Muslims use a process called abrogation to decide which parts to follow now.
Surah 73: 1-4 commands:
“O thou enfolded in thy mantle, stand up all night, except a small portion of it, for prayer: half; or curtail the half a little—or add to it: And with measured tone intone the Koran, for we shall devolve on thee weighty words.”
While verse 20 of the same Surah commands:
“Of a truth, thy Lord knoweth that thou prayest almost two-thirds, or half, or a third of the night, as do a part of thy followers. But God measureth the night and the day: He knoweth that ye cannot count its hours aright, and therefore, turneth to you mercifully. Recite then so much of the Koran as may be easy to you.”
Abrogation here is when older commands are replaced with newer commands.
The Hadith is a record of Muhammad’s sayings and the Sunna is the prophet’s deeds, words, and approvals, but they are not considered to be the word of God like The Koran.
