Usage notes[edit]

  • The word refers to the Qur'an both as an abstract term and as a book copy. In the former sense, it is always preceded by the definite article: der Koran.
  • In contrast to English usage, the spelling Koran remains the only one commonly used in German. The Arabised spelling Qur'an or Qur'ân is occasionally used in Islamic religious writing, but is otherwise rare and generally nonstandard.
