Well, I was obviously not the first to want to know/calculate the number of ayat (verses) in Al-Quran: http://www.islamic-info.com/2009/07/how-many-total-verses-in-holy-quran.html – this brother used the MSExcel spreadsheet.
Dividend – The amount that you want to divide up.
Divisor – the number you divide by
Quotient – the answer when you divide one number by another
dividend ÷ divisor = quotient
So, the total number of verses in Al Qur’an is: ……………………
(1) 6,236 (exclusive of the un-numbered bismillahs)
(2) 6,346 (inclusive of the 112 un-numbered bismillahs)
So sisters, do the math – this might be a FUN way to get the kids involved too! See this site: http://www.mathsisfun.com/index.htm
