The word Al-Quran has the following meanings:

1. "The Collection" so called because it collects and comprises verses, and chapters OR commands, prohibitions, instructions, glad tidings, warnings, facts and the like. 2. "The Sententious" so called because of being concise but full of meanings and abounding in aphorisms. 3. "The Seminal" so called because its constitution provides a basis for the further development of man's "self" or "personality". 4. "The [most frequently/recurrently] Read and Recited and Rehearsed". 5. "The Proclamation".

Putting it all together, Al-Quran is:

The Sententious and the Seminal Proclamation that comprises recurrently rehearsed commands, prohibitions, instructions, glad tidings, warnings, facts and the like.
