The importance of the Koran(19 images)

The Koran, the Muslim holy book, also spelled as the Quran or Qur'an, is to be treated with the utmost care and respect by those of the faith, and any treatment otherwise, particularly at the hands of U.S. religious leaders and soldiers, has drawn sharp rebukes and in some instances, violence, at the hands of members of the Muslim community.
