The Qur'án comprises 114 chapters called 'Súrihs' or 'súras', each of which represents a single revelation. Shoghi Effendi urged the Bahá'ís to 'make a thorough study of the Qur'án as the knowledge of this Sacred Scripture is absolutely indispensable for every believer who wishes to adequately understand and intelligently read the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh.'7
[BD 191]
