Vocabulary of Islam

Sura (sometimes referred to as "Surah") (سورة Template:ArabDIN) is an Arabic term literally meaning "picture", "evidence", or "proof." The term is often taken to mean a chapter of the Qur'an, which are traditionally ordered in roughly reverse chronological order, with Madinan suras coming first and Makkan ones last for the most part. Each sura is divided into ayat, or verses.
