The Makeup of Quran
Let us analyze. There are a total of 114 Surahs in the Quran. The Surah can be classified as either Makkiah or Madaniah; those revealed before and after migration respectively. 82 are Makkiah while 20 are Madaniah. This makes a sum of 102. In the remaining 12 there is Ikhtilaaf amongst the scholars. So 71.93% of the Quran was revealed before migration and dealt with issues of Aqeedah, motivating people to do good work, warning them about punishment in the hereafter, telling about our creation, stories about prophets and information regarding the unseen. While only 17.54% of the Quran in terms of Surahs was revealed after migration and dealt with legislating rules, debating and hypocrisy.
- 500 ayahs- Commandments/ which makes 8-9% approx
- 3000+ ayahs – Stories which is around 45-50% approx
- The remaining cover many examples, rational statements, empirical statements and other subjects.
We see people being harmed in the name of religion and we see how many people have absolutely no knowledge of what Islam really is. We will be held accountable on the Last day for our negligence. Anyhow there are multiple ways to learn and decipher the code of “nukhsa e qeemia”. Every reasonable person is invited to follow a newer divine syllabus. The Holy Quran. The modern book of Islam. We Muslims agree that the best book is the Holy Quran, but the question is which Tafseer e Quran is authentic?
