NUMERICAL AND CHRONOLOGICAL LIST OF THE CHAPTERS OF THE QUR’AN

Below is a list of the Chapters of the Qur’an arranged as follows:-

The conventional Chapter number is followed by the Arabic title(s), English translation(s), ordinal (chronological) position
of the Chapter and its place of revelation according to Th. Noeldeke (*Geschichte des Qorans*) and the ordinal (chronological) position of the Chapter and its place of revelation according to the Cairo (A.H. 1337) edition.
M stands for Mecca (hence, the Chapter is of the "Meccan" period) and Y stands for Medīna (hence, the Chapter is of the "Medīnan"
period). Noeldeke divided the "Meccan" period into three: early (represented by M1), middle (represented by M2) and late (represented
by M3). For the determination of the locus of revelation, the Cairo edition relies on the authority of the traditional Muslim
(Arabic) works on the Qur’an, noting that these "are at times in disagreement with one another". While each Chapter is ascribed
in Muslim tradition to either of the two loci of revelation, there are verses within many Chapters that were revealed at the
alternative locus or, sometimes, at other loci (ʿArafāt, Ḥudaybīyah, Juḥfah or Miná). Thus, the Cairene order is followed
by a notation indicating these variations, as well as the occasional disagreement with the Istanboul (Ottoman) edition on
the locus of revelation.
