The sequence of the Qur’aan Shareef

Q: I heard the first verse of the Quran shareef revealed is iqra, and now the quran is starting with Al Fatheha. Why was the Quran shareef compiled in this manner?


A: Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) had explained to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhum) the sequence of the Qur’aan Shareef.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
