Can you please tell me how the Qur'an
was revealed; it is mentioned that such and such a surah was revealed in
Makkah, another in Medinah and when. How was the order of the surahs
established? May Allah bless you and reward you.
Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Mohammed,
over a period of 23 years.
13 of those years, when the Prophet,
, lived in Makkah, and 10
after her migrated to Medinah. The
order of the different surahs, and even different aayaat in the surahs is part
of the revelation. Jibreel, peace
be upon him, would inform the Prophet,
, where the
Qur’an the newly revealed aayaat should be placed, or after which surah if
it was a new surah.
