The Qur'an or Koran is the primary holy text of the Islamic religion. According to Muslims, the Qur'an was dictated by God to Muhammad in Classical Arabic through the angel Gabriel. The Qur'an is heavily criticized, especially in the West, for its consideration of women as inferior to men, its advocacy of intolerance towards non-Muslims, and its extremely violent system of punishment for crimes (especially victimless "crimes" such as extramarital sex, homosexuality, blasphemy and apostasy).
