Ask an Alim

Was the quran revealed in the order what we have today ie chapter and verse from the begin to the end

Q:

who arranged the Quran by verse and by chapter or was it revealed in the order what we have in the Quran? Did the prophet write himself in this order ?

A:

There is a difference of opinion in regards to this query:

1. Ayatullah Khoie and few other scholars : The present version of the Qur’an is the same which used to be at the time of prophet. 

2. Other scholars: The Qur’an was compiled after the demise of the holy prophet (pbuh). Imam Ali (as) and other companions such as Zayd b Thabit and others played a vital role in compilation of Qur’an.
