Muslim Boys Studying the Holy Qur'an
The Holy Qur'an is at the center of Muslim life. Muslims recite verses from it in their daily prayers and at important public and private events. Many Muslims also memorize this holy scripture so that they can keep it in their hearts. Before touching the holy book, Muslims follow rituals for purification, including washing and preparing the mind, body, and spirit. Care must be taken that the Qur'an does not come into contact with any unclean substance, and it is never to be laid upon the ground.
