REAL KORAN

Koran consists of 114 chapters (surahs), and there are two versions of Koran: in Real Kuran the chapters are in chronological order. In the other one, the chapters are organized according to the length of each chapter, i.e. longer chapters are placed ahead of shorter ones.

[The following translations of Koran are copied from “The Message of The Quran; Translated And Explained by Muhammad Asad.”]

On the 32nd verse of 25th chapter (Al-Furquan) Allah states as follows:

Now they who are bent on denying the truth are wont to ask, “Why has not the Quran been bestowed on him from on high in one single revelation? [it has been revealed] in this manner so that We might strengthen thy heart thereby - for We have so arranged its component parts that they form one consistent whole -

On the 23rd verse of chapter 39 (Az-Zumar) Allah states as follows:

God bestows from on high the best of all teachings in the shape of a divine writ fully consistent within itself, repeating each statement [of the truth] in manifold forms [a divine writ] whereat shiver the skins of all who of their Sustainer stand in awe: [but] in the end their skins and their hearts do soften at the remembrance of [the grace of] God. Such is God's guidance: He guides therewith him that wills [to be guided] whereas he whom God lets go astray can never find any guide.

If you scramble the chapters of any book and try to read it, it would be very hard to understand it if not impossible. As stated in the above verses, The Koran is very consistent “in chronological order.”

HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE KORAN

In order to understand The Koran there are three prerequisites that are equally important:

In other words, if anyone of the above clauses is missing it becomes very hard to comprehend The Koran, if not impossible. (Please note that Mohammad Asad's translation is arranged according to the length of the surahs; for chronological order click here.)
