For the convenience of those who read the Quran in a week the text may be divided into seven portions, each known as Manzil.[1]

The following division to 7 equal portions is by Hamzah az-Zaiyyat (d.156/772):[1]

  1. Al-Fatiha (chapter 1) through an-Nisa (chapter 4) consisting of 4 chapters (Surah).
  2. Al-Ma'idah (chapter 5) through at-Tawbah (chapter 9) consisting of 5 chapters.
