  2. Mashaallah. But heard that the quran consists of 6666 verses please advise

    • You ‘heard’ it. Did you check it?
      Actually it is a misconception created to propagate the use of number 6 by evil groups. Some Muslims fall into this trap.
      Keep the Mus’haf in your hand, take a pen and do the total of number of verses in each Surah. The number of verses in all the 114 Surahs comes to 6236. I checked it myself. You can check for yourself too.
      Baarakallaahu feek.
