114 Suras of the Koran

The Quran is considered sacred by all Muslims and is the cornerstone of the Islamic faith, law, and practice. It is thought to be the actual ‘Word of God’ as revealed to Muhammad over a period of 23 years. It was revealed to the Prophet in the Arabic language between 610 and 632 CE. These divine revelations were given to Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel, who appeared to him in numerous visions and auditions. They were written down by Muhammad's companions and followers and were later compiled into a single book after his death. The Book itself is composed of 114 chapters or surahs, which are further divided into 'verses or ayahs'. Each surah is named after a unique word or phrase that appears within the text. The chapters are arranged in descending order of length, with the longest chapter being the second chapter or Surah Al-Baqarah, which contains 286 verses, and the shortest chapter being the 108th chapter or Surah Al-Kawthar, which contains only three verses.

As with the Jewish Bible and the Christian Gospels, the Quran addresses a wide range of topics, including the nature of God, the creation of the universe, the purpose of human existence, the principles of morality, and the laws of society. It also contains stories of prophets and their struggles with the challenges of life. It provides invaluable lessons on how to lead a virtuous and fulfilling life. It has also played a significant role in shaping the history and culture of the Islamic world and further afield. Its teachings have inspired countless individuals throughout history to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives. In addition, the Quran has been a source of inspiration for Islamic art and literature, with many works of poetry and literature being based on its themes and stories.

The Quran has also been the subject of much scholarly debate and analysis over the centuries. Islamic scholars have developed a number of disciplines to study the Quran, including tafsir, hadith, and fiqh. These disciplines have helped to preserve and interpret the Quranic text, ensuring that its message remains relevant to modern times. Consequently, the Quran is not only relevant to Muslims but also to people of other faiths and those interested in understanding Islam. Its message of unity, compassion, and social justice has resonated with people of different backgrounds and cultures.

I was so pleased to see there were exactly 114 football teams in the four English leagues and top two Scottish leagues. What a wonderful route to follow and use to memorise at least, the main titles of each of the Surah's. Join me on this trip of a lifetime!
