What Surahs Are In Juz Amma?

What surahs are in Juz Amma?

The following list includes the 39 chapters from the Qur’an which are part of the Juz Amma. The chapters are listed in the order in which they appear in the Qur’an.


The 11th chapter of the Quran, known as Al-Araf, is the first chapter in Juz amma. It consists of seven verses. The chapter deals with the story of Prophet Ibrahim and his two sons, Ismail and Ishaq. Ibrahim is one of the three prophets who was raised by God. When he was about to sacrifice his son Ismail, God told him that he would provide a sacrifice. He then sent a ram to Ibrahim, who sacrificed it instead of Ismail. When Ibrahim returned home, he saw a fire and a rock ready to stone him. However, God sent his angel to inform Ibrahim that he was the one who had saved Ismail from the fire.


Surah Al-A’raf is the last chapter of the Quran. It is the shortest chapter of the Quran and consists of 7 verses. It tells the story of the Prophet Ibrahim’s (peace be upon him) near sacrifice. Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was willing to sacrifice his son Ishmael for his God. But God tells Ibrahim to sacrifice an animal instead and gives him a ram. In this chapter, Allah tells Ibrahim to build a house for the ram. Ibrahim’s obedience to his God is the major theme of this chapter.


The 114th to 126th Surahs of the Quran are known by the acronym of Al-Falaq. They are the first three chapters of the Quran to be revealed. The first chapter (Al-Falaq) is the start of the Quran. The second chapter (Sūrat Al-Baqār) is the end of the Quran. The last chapter (Sūrat Al-Nāl) is the middle.


The translation of the word “Juz” is “brevity”. This word is used to describe the shortness of the chapters of the Qur’an. The word “Juz” is also used to describe the first six months of Islamic calendar. The Qur’an was revealed in the first half of the 6th century AD. Therefore, the revelation period of the Qur’an is known as the “Juz Amma”.

Al-Hujjat (12)

Let’s start with the first surah of Al-Hujaj: Al-Hujaj (Chapter 12, Verses 131-132). This chapter is one of the earlier revelations of the Qur’an. In this revelation, Allah tells the Prophet (peace be upon him) to make a pilgrimage to Makkah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) responded by making Hajj. After this, Allah also commanded the Prophet (peace be upon him) to migrate to Madeenah. In the Juz Amma chapter, we find the following verses: “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: O Allah, there is no god but You. You have power over everything. Take us as a community from among the nations as a pilgrim and a resident to a holy city, the place of pilgrimage for the people, which You have ordained for us.”

Al-Shams (91)

Surahs in the second chapter of the Quran, known as Al-Juzamah, are collected together because of the similarity of their style, which is a mix of Arabic calligraphy and Quranic writing, making the chapters look uniform. The chapter also consists of 29 verses, each comprising four lines.


The following 30 chapters of the Quran are called the “juz” or “chapters” of the Quran. The word “juz” is Arabic for 30, and it is so named because it is the number of verses in each chapter. The 30 juz of the Quran are divided into two categories: the “middle juz” (surahs from Surah Al-A’raf to Surah An-Nisa’) and the “end juz” (surahs from Surah Al-Ma’ida to Surah An-Nisa’).
