Hello, I would like to see the order of the Quran as an option so one can change between it's current state and a Chronological view as the Revelations came to Mohammad PBUH.

You do have a search at the bottom for revelation order but it doesn't set the entire Quran in that order. That original order inspired a creation of the ISLAM and it's rapid spread of the message throughout the entire region in a very short time.
Please email me when this is ready; I will be forever grateful (frasar@yahoo.com)

Peace be upon all men/women and may every men/women be guided in the straight path!

  • Currently we have Ibn Abbas revelation order, which can be used to sort search results. For example you may want to know the evolution of the root "S L M" during 23 years.

    Unfortunately, current revelation order is sura-by-sura. There are, however, exceptions in a sura-by-sura order, that is, ayas in a sura, which may not align with the revelation order of the rest of the sura. This arises the need to an aya-by-aya revelation order. We have not ONE revelation order, since there are different narrations of which sura precedes which. There are even some scientific speculations of revelation order, which cannot be totally accepted without more historical evidence.

    Finally, I accept that we should allow users to see Quran in a revelation order.
