      Re: Total Ayat in Qur'an




      Dont worry about that brother, it varies, but this doesnt mean ayahs are missing, its just that some mushafs count two ayahs as one or one ayah as two and due to small differences like that the verse count varies slightly :brother:

      I don't get that.. Why aren't the mushafs the same? A little confused here! There's big difference between 6666 and 6236..

      Re: Total Ayat in Qur'an




      Yes Im sorry if I didnt explain it good.

      You see certain verses are counted as one in certain mushafs in others its counted as two and vice versa, however nowadays you wont find that as much since there has been a sort of a standarisation of the mushaf most people use the one printed in Madinah by the Saudi government, in other mushafs earlier you might have found this, a quick example would be that last ayah of surah Fatiha. Most Mushafs hold it to be one ayah, but some break it down into "Sirataladina an amta alyhim" as one ayah and "ghayril maghdubi alyhim waladaaaleeen" as another. Now if you imagen, if there is this difference in about an average of six verses in each surah of the Quran then the gap wont seem as big, and the difference between brother afzalaungs and that website seems very negligible

      I did understand what you meant, I just don't get it.. Why don't they agree on the ayats.. I don't understand WHY they aren't agreeing..

      Re: Total Ayat in Qur'an




      The point where an ayah stops and starts is determined by the flow of the language as well as how it was recited by the companions etc amongst other things however at the end of the day its just a dot and does not alter the meaning and the Quran stays intact alhamdulilah

      JazaakAllah khayr brother, very well said.

      Sometimes, we tend to forget the main issues and make a big issue out of petty differences. This only serves to disunite the ummah.

      I'm not suggesting that this thread was useless; indeed it has been discussed by scholars in the past. But to make this difference an issue, after it has been clarified by some members masha-Allah, would be incorrect.

      Sorry if I'm appearing to be making an issue out of this, but you get my drift...
