We revealed the Qur'an on the night of Ghadr.
The Qur'an is the word of God and the heavenly book of Muslims, which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) by Gabriel. Muslims consider the content and words of the Qur'an to have been revealed by God; They also believe that the Qur'an is a miracle and a sign of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the last divine book. This book emphasizes on its miracle and the reason for its miracle is that no one can bring a likeness to it.
The Holy Quran has 114 chapters and nearly six thousand verses. There is disagreement about the exact number of verses. Some have quoted from Imam Ali (as) that the Qur'an has 6236 verses. The Qur'an is divided into thirty parts and 120 Hizbs.
The revelation of the Qur'an, the divine book
According to some verses of the Qur'an, this book was revealed during the month of Ramadan and the night of Ghadr. Accordingly, there is disagreement among Muslims as to whether the Qur'an was revealed all at once or gradually. Some have quoted it has been revealed both at once and gradually; Some believe that what was supposed to be revealed to the Prophet (PBUH) in one year was revealed to him at once on the night of Ghadr; some also believe that the Qur'an was revealed only gradually and began to descend in the month of Ramadan and Ghadr night.
