  • No, Muslims believe the verses of Qur'an have been sent to Prophet Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. That's how they are in the Qur'an and that is what Muslims believe. Feb 1, 2016 at 14:54

Allah (SWT) revealed those stories to his Messenger (PBUH) through Angel Gabriel (Jibreel).

Allah (SWT) says in Surat Hud:

وَكُلًّا نَّقُصُّ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ أَنبَاءِ الرُّسُلِ مَا نُثَبِّتُ بِهِ فُؤَادَكَ ۚ وَجَاءَكَ فِي هَـٰذِهِ الْحَقُّ وَمَوْعِظَةٌ وَذِكْرَىٰ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿١٢٠

And all that We relate to you (O Muhammad SAW) of the news of the Messengers is in order that We may make strong and firm your heart thereby. And in this (chapter of the Qur'an) has come to you the truth, as well as an admonition and a reminder for the believers. (120)
