We continue explaining the words that are written joined or separated in the Glorious Qur'an, please refer to the first two lessons on this subject now located in the tidbit archives for the importance of these lessons.

These two words are usually written , meaning written as "", in the Qur’an, but there are four places that these words are written , or separate.  Sheikh Al-Jazaree said:  

 From these lines we know that the following aayaat have these two words written separately:


The word in the poem , is a referral to surah  because that word uniquely appears in that surah, in ayaah 107. 




These two words are written  in the Qur’an, and there is only two places where they occur, both in surah Al-Baqarah.

 Imam Ibn Al-Jazaree said only:

These two words are written in the Glorious Qur’an  wherever they occur in the Qur’an.  Imam Ibn Al-Jazaree indicated this when he stated:

 There is one place where a difference in copies of the Qur'an as to its writing ()

Throughout the rest of the Qur’an these two words are agreed to be written
