“Jews and Christians say the Bible has verses. “We Too!” say the Muslims, in direct fulfilment of prophesy in Hadith. The Qur’an has “Verses” too, Muslims chime in.

No one seems to care or recall what the Qur’an itself says: that its passages are living miracles; that they are signs and markers, every single one of them; and they are not “verses.”

The Qur’an calls them AayaatAayat or Aayah for singular; Aayaat for plural.

For, that is what the word Aayah means in Arabic: a miracle; a proof; a marker; a sign. Not “a verse” by any stretch of the imagination or Arabic usage.” (Dr. Pasha)
