An Effort in Facilitation

How the Mus’haf is divided into 30 Parts

It is important, here,  to note that the division of the Mus’haf during the time of Prophet Muhammad (sal-lal-lahu-alaihi-wa-sallam) was only based on chapters (Surahs). The Juz-wise division, that is given below, was introduced during later period. The purpose was – and is – to help the Huffaz, the memorisers of the Qur’an, to keep track of their learning and following it up for periodic recitations.
