How many Ayats in the Quran?

There are different opinions provided by the Islamic scholars for the specific number of ayat in the Quran. According to these opinions, the total number of ayat is 6204, 6014, 6219, 6225, 6226, or 6236.

Still, their difference is mainly numerical, i.e. how to count the ayat; not out of difference in the content itself.

What is The First Quranic verse (First ayat of Quran)?

The first verse revealed to Prophet Muhammad PBUH was:

ٱقْرَأْ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّكَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ١

“Read, ˹O Prophet,˺ in the Name of your Lord Who created—created humans from a clinging clot.” (96:1-2)

Still, the arrangement of the final construction of the Quran is different from that of revelation. Indeed, revelation is concerned with building the first Muslim community in accordance with the events they faced; it was revealed gradually. Rather, the final construction is the final arrangement suitable for anyone reading the Noble Quran after the completion of the revelation.

Thus, the first verse in this final complete revelation that you find when you open the Quran is:

بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ١

In the Name of Allah—the Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.

ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ ٢

All praise is for Allah—Lord of all worlds. (1:1-2)

What is The Last Quranic verse (Last ayat of Quran)?

The most famous view of Muslims scholars for the last revealed verse is verse (2:281):

وَٱتَّقُوا۟ يَوْمًۭا تُرْجَعُونَ فِيهِ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ

‘Be mindful of the Day when you will ˹all˺ be returned to Allah, then every soul will be paid in full for what it has done, and none will be wronged.” (Q, 2:281)

Still, there are different opinions presented by Muslim scholars in this regard since there is no direct authentic narration reported by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) stating the last verse revealed him. Rather, the scholars’ views represent what is strongly assumed to be the case and what circumstantial evidence indicates. 

Moreover, the verses stated may be based on the last thing that one narrator heard from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and someone else heard something that was revealed after that, and the first one did not hear [what was revealed later] because he was not present, and the revelation [of more verses] came down after that.

The most popular opinions are:

1.The verse of Forbidding Usury (2:278)

2.Verse (2:281) abovementioned 

3.The verse of Debt (2:282)

Actually, all these three opinions can lead to only one since all of them are successive. Every narrator may refer to them partially using only one verse of the group.

4. Verse (5:3) of the Quran:

ٱلْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِى وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ ٱلْإِسْلَـٰمَ دِينًۭا ۚ

“Today I have perfected your faith for you, completed My favour upon you, and chosen Islam as your way.” (Q, 5:3)

5. Verse (4:176) of the Quran:

يَسْتَفْتُونَكَ قُلِ ٱللَّهُ يُفْتِيكُمْ فِى ٱلْكَلَـٰلَةِ ۚ

They ask you ˹for a ruling, O  Prophet˺. Say, “Allah gives you a ruling regarding those who die without children or parents.”

There are other opinions as well. Overall, learning about the last verse revealed is not obligatory and the Prophet (PBUH) didn’t explain or make it obligatory to know about it.

What is the most powerful and famous verse in the Quran?

The greatest verse in the Quran is Verse (2:255) known as Verse of Throne (al Kursi). Allah Almighty says:

ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلْحَىُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُۥ سِنَةٌۭ وَلَا نَوْمٌۭ ۚ

Allah! There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him, the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining. Neither drowsiness nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who could possibly intercede with Him without His permission? He ˹fully˺ knows what is ahead of them and what is behind them, but no one can grasp any of His knowledge—except what He wills ˹to reveal˺. His Seat encompasses the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of both does not tire Him. For He is the Most High, the Greatest.

(Q, 2:255)

The evidence for that is what was narrated that the Prophet PBUH asked one of his companions one day, “do you know the verse from the Book of Allah which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: Allah and His Apostle (ﷺ) know best. He again said: Abu’l-Mundhir, do you know the verse from the Book of Allah which, according to you, is the greatest? I said: Allah, there is no god but He, the Living, the Eternal.” (Muslim transmitted)

Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.   [Qur’an 57:20]

اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ ۖ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَامًا ۖ وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانٌ ۚ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ

God is telling you and me that this life is not permanent. In brief, you should think of your everlasting life in the Hereafter rather than a deceiving worldly life.

حَتَّىٰ إِذَا اسْتَيْأَسَ الرُّسُلُ وَظَنُّوا أَنَّهُمْ قَدْ كُذِبُوا جَاءَهُمْ نَصْرُنَا فَنُجِّيَ مَن نَّشَاءُ ۖ وَلَا يُرَدُّ بَأْسُنَا عَنِ الْقَوْمِ الْمُجْرِمِينَ
