B   Being the holy book of Islam and the centre of veneration of Muslims, the Qur’an has extensively been studied by Muslim scholars. This interest developed ‘Ulum Al-Qur’an’ or “the Sciences of the Qur’an” into a discipline that comprehensively studied every aspect of the Book of Allah. This book focuses on one of those sciences, which is studying the names of the chapters (suras) of the Qur’an. It explains where each chapter name has come from and tries to identify naming patterns.

The book is divided into two main parts. The first contains seven chapters each of which focuses on certain elements of the subject. The second part analyses in detail the name of each of the 114 Qur’anic chapters. Among the topics it covers:


An introduction to the Qur’an.


Hadiths in which the Prophet refers to chapters by their names.


Chapters that have two names.


The Qur’anic origin of the chapters names.


Where the names appears in their respective chapters.


Categorization of the meanings of the chapters names.
