Qur'an: the Night of Glory

In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy

We sent it down on the Night of Glory.* What will explain to you what the Night of Glory is? The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months; on that night the angels and the Spirit descend again and again with their Lord's permission on every task; [there is] peace that night until the break of dawn.

*We? Who is speaking here?

God/Creator is Genderless, formless, Unique and indivisible. The use of pronouns are simply a limitation of the human language.

It is said the Quran is brought by "Ruh al-Qudus" (arabic) (Ruach Hakodesh) Hebrew translated as "Holy Spirit" but among muslims, generally understood to be Angel Gabriel.
