Ordering the Surahs according to the `Uthmany Mus-haf
Q 1: Please find attached a copy of Juz’ ‘Amma (the last 30th of the Qur’an), with footnotes giving the meanings of difficult words. I noticed in it that the Surahs are arranged in reverse order, starting with Surah Al-Nas and ending with Surah ‘Amma.Please advise if this order is permissible and
whether the order of the Qur’anic Surahs
is Tawqifiy (bound by a religious text and not amenable to personal opinion) or not?May Allah reward you with the best.
It is obligatory that the Surahs should follow the same order as in the ‘Uthmany script of the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur’an). Accordingly, the last Juz’ should start with Surah ‘Amma (Al-Naba’) and end with Surah Al-Nas.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
