Wa alaikum assalaam wa
rahmatu Allahi wa barakaatuh.
The number of aayaat in
the Glorious Qur’an was not included in the revelation, and there is
difference of opinion from the early scholars as to the number of aayaat in
different surahs and therefore in the total.
There are five opinions on the total number of aayaat found in the book
“Jamaal al-Quraa’ wa Kamaal al-Iqraa’” written by the famous scholar
As-Sakhaawee. The Kufi number is
6236, the first Medinah number is 6214, the second Medinah number is 6217, the
Basrah number is 6204 and the Shaam number is 6227.
Most likely the number
6236 matches the number in your copy of the Glorious Qur’an.
