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
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
- One needs to read The Koran in chronological order.
- One needs to read The Koran in a language that he/she speaks fluently.
- If the person’s mother tongue is not Arabic, one needs to read many
translations of The Koran together, by making comparisons. We recommend
translation of Muhammad Asad because it is a compilation of many
other translations; he explains the context when the surah was revealed
based on events and history.
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.)
