Physical Aspects of the Noble Quran
The Precious Quran consists of 114 surahs1 and 6256 ayat, some 77,436 words and about 320,211 letters2.  These numbers may be reported differ­ently from scholar to scholar depending on the method of counting the Arabic words and letters, and sometimes depending on the division or grouping of certain ayat. The entire Book was revealed in 23 years through 194 revelations with the last revelation in the 11th year after the Hijrah (the migration from Makkah to Madinah). On an average basis, one ayah, of about 12 words was revealed per day (but not, of course, every day in practice).

Social Interactions E-mail

Courteous social relations with Allah (S.W.T.)'s creation while avoiding all acts of disobedience to Him is a sign of Allah (S.W.T.)'s excessive generosity with His bondsman. Whoever is sincere and humble before Allah (S.W.T.) in his innermost being will have good social interaction externally. Keep company with people for the sake of Allah (S.W.T.) and do not keep company merely for your own share of worldly affairs, for seeking rank, showing off, or for reputation. Do not fall below the limits of the shari'ah for the sake of social intercourse, such as trying to keep up with others, or gaining a reputation, for these things cannot make up for you, and you will miss the next world, with no recourse. Treat someone who is older than you as you would your father, someone who is younger than you as you would a son. Treat your peer as you would a brother. Do not abandon what you know to be certain within yourself for something heard from other people which you doubt. Be gentle when you enjoin good, and compassionate when you forbid evil.

Never abandon good counsel in any circumstance. As Allah (S.W.T.) said,

Speak to men good words﴿1.

Cut yourself off from what makes you forget to remember Allah (S.W.T.), when temptation distracts you from obedience to Him, for that comes from the friends and helpers of Satan. Do not allow the sight of them to move you to dissimulation with the truth, for that would be a terrible loss indeed. We seek refuge with Almighty Allah (S.W.T.).
