Building a relationship with the Quran Quran is the greatest miracle that Allah Almighty bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This Book is the word of Divine and it is in it that there is guidance about each and every matter of life.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
