    QUESTION: Were the 30 chapters of the Glorious Qur’an already established in the sacred era of the Sahaba ?

    Imam Jalaal al Din Suyut Alaihi Rahmah(d.911/1505), in his famous kitaab Al-Itqan fi Ulum al- Qur'an, has compiled all the relevant Ahadith and narrations pertaining to the compilation of the Holy Qur'an.

    It is not mentioned anywhere in this kitaab of the distribution of the chapter which tells us that it was done in that sacred era. Yes, the Ruku's existed. Eight years later, the Mashaa'ikh and the 'Ulama have allocated 540 Ruku's in Taraweeh excluding Surah al-Fateha. If one Ruku' is recited in one Rak'at then the entire Qur 'an Al Karim will be completed on the 27th Night of Ramadan i.e. Lailat al-Qadr, (20 Rak'ats daily for 27 nights with 1 Ruku' per Rak'a will total 27 x 20 = 540 Ruku's) . [Al-Malfuz al-Shareef of Imam Ahmad Raza Alaihi Rahmah]
