Al-Quran is Kalamullah or Allah’s words and the greatest miracle bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad Muhammad Sallahu ‘Alaihi Wassalam. It is the source of the basic essentials of any form of education, especially religious teachings. It is also guidance in life as a society and in implementing the duties and trust as the Khalifah or Caliphs of Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala, the leaders of the Muslim ummah who carry out Allah’s orders and decrees in this world.
