The sura (chapters) of the Koran are arranged by convention in approximate size order, with the larger chapters first. This is an unhelpful arrangement.
When studying the Koran it is vitally important to understand the principle of Abrogation, otherwise we are liable to completely misunderstand its teachings.
Abrogation means that the chronologically more recent verses abrogate, or cancel out the earlier verses, wherever contradictions occur.
The Koran made available here is arranged in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent sura are read first.
