NOTES Refers to the sacred scriptures of Islam, believed by Muslims to be the word of Allah and revealed to the prophet Muhammad between 610-632 CE by the angel Gabriel. The text may be embellished with geometric and vegetal decorations, but the traditional prohibition against representing living creatures is applied with particular force to texts of the Koran. Paintings illustrating narrative passages of the Koran never appear in manuscripts of the Koran itself, although they do appear in manuscripts of texts inspired by its themes. A definitive text of the Koran is believed to have been established within 30 years of Muhammad's death; it has remained unchanged since. The Koran comprises 114 chapters, or suras, which are roughly arranged by decreasing order of length, and primarily written in the voice of God.
