Qur'an on Social Matters
Hadith on Kindness
Islam is a monotheistic world religion that originated in Arabia. It represents the whole of life to followers, known as Muslims. It does not compartmentalize religious and non-religious aspects of society. Islam encourages Muslims to create a just and equitable society.

Only the Qur'an (i.e., Koran) revealed to Prophet Muhammad by an angelic agent of God is infallible. The Qur'an is a collection of 114 sutras/revelations Muhammad received over a 23 year period while living in Mecca and Medina. The Hadiths, the other major source of inspiration, describes sayings and deeds of Prophet Muhammad and serve as guides for daily life.
