The standard Koran is arranged by length of chapter, not chronologically. The longest chapter is at the beginning and the shortest chapters are at the end. This makes it confusing and difficult to understand.
Mohammed is the key to the Koran. When his life is integrated into the verses, the context is restored. This is the way the Koran originally unfolded. It was recorded over the course of Mohammed’s life. When you weave Mohammed into the Koran, it becomes an epic story that ends with the triumph of Islam over all of Arabia.
A SIMPLE KORAN recreates the historical order of the Koran of Mohammed’s day. The first chapters start with Mohammed’s first recitation and the last chapters are those he recited before he died. Mohammed’s life gives the Koran clarity, meaning, and order.
The Islamic Trilogy—Koran, Sira, Hadith
