Hold on together to the connecting

rope of Allah, and do not disperse….

The Quran (3:103)

 

 

The Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during a 23 year period from 610 CE until 633 CE.  Prophet (PBUH) would utter the Quran after revelation and because He could not read or write, Ali (RA), his cousin and son-in-law or other people would write it down immediately.  The order of the revelation was like a jigsaw puzzle.  The first revelation was Sura 96, Ayat 1-5, then Sura 68, except Ayat 33-48 and 50 and so on ‘til the last Sura that was revealed was 110. Every year Archangel Gabriel would review the order of the Quran with the Prophet (PBUH).  The Quran was collated during the Caliphate of Osman, the third Caliph (25 AH) and one of the original ones still exists in Uzbakestan.
