Difference Between Makki and Madani Surah:

Am I going to tell you the basic difference between the Makki Surah and Madni Surah? Here you will find an imperative guide undoubtedly!

There are some characteristics of both, Makki Surah and Madani Surah, which make them unique to each other. If you are interested in knowing more about both types of Surahs, then you can scroll down to consult the related information.

In general, the Holy Quran was revealed over 23 years of the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).  Holy Quran first revealed in Makkah, then finished his mission in Madina.

Makki Surahs in Quran:

Remember, Every Surah with a Sajdah is Makki Surah. And every Surah, with the exception of Surah Al-Baqarah, in which the story of Adam (A.S) and Iblis (Shaitan) finds mention is Makki.

While, Surahs with short verses, a strong rhetorical style and rhythmic sound is called Makki Surah.

Characteristics of Makki Surahs:

Makki Surahs are generally brief. They deal with the following:

  • Belief in the oneness of Allah.
  • Belief in the Day of Judgment.
  • Belief in the rewards for good deeds and punishments for bad deeds.
  • Belief in the Heaven and the Hell.
  • Moral character of a person.
  • Invitation to virtue.

Madani Surahs in Quran:

The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) moved to Madina. Madina Surahs emphasized on establishing Islamic laws, , monetary transactions, ethics, family laws, morals and relationship of Islam and Muslims with other world religions.
The main symbol of Madani Surah is,  in which a permission of  “jihad” or a description of its injunctions has been given is Madani surah.

Similarly Every verse which mentions the hypocrites is Madani Surahs, with arguments with the People of the Book (Jews, Christians).

Characteristics of Madni Surahs:

The characteristics of the Madani Surahs are completely different from the characteristics of Makki Surahs. These Surahs are also generally lengthy. They contain:

  • Social duties and obligations.
  • Permission and commandments relating to Jihad.

Final Words:

In conclusion, I hope this article was clear enough to help you understand the difference between Makki and Madani Surah and also now you know that how many chapters and verses are in the Quran.
