Yes, there are Qur'ans available in the order that the verses were revealed to the Prophet (peace be upon him). These Qur'ans are known as "chronological Qur'ans" or "arranged Qur'ans." They present the verses of the Qur'an in the order in which they were revealed to the Prophet, rather than in the order in which they appear in the traditional Qur'an.

The traditional Qur'an is organized according to the length of the chapters, with the longest chapters appearing at the beginning and the shortest chapters appearing at the end. The chronological Qur'an, on the other hand, is organized according to the order in which the verses were revealed to the Prophet, with the earliest revelations appearing first and the later revelations appearing later.

There are several benefits to reading the Qur'an in chronological order, including a deeper understanding of the historical context of the revelations and a better appreciation of the progression of the message of the Qur'an. However, it is important to note that the traditional Qur'an is the one that is considered authoritative and is used for all official purposes, such as recitation in prayers and recitation during the month of Ramadan.

There are several different versions of the chronological Qur'an available, and they may vary in the specific order in which the verses are presented.

Misconceptions

Some believe the Qur'an was not written down during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad. However, there is evidence from the Qur'an and the hadith that suggests that the Qur'an was written down during the Prophet's lifetime, both in the form of written manuscripts and in the form of memorization by the Prophet's companions.

Conclusion

In conclusion, there is evidence from the Qur'an and the hadith that suggests that the Qur'an was recited and read aloud during the lifetime of the Prophet. Additionally, there is evidence that the Qur'an was written down during the Prophet's lifetime, both in the form of written manuscripts and in the form of memorization by the Prophet's companions. Some companions retained a copy of Quran in the chronological order it was revealed in whilst others held it in the final order Allah ordained it.
