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 Hamza Al-Zayyat (d.156/772):[1]

  1. Al-Fatihah (chapter 1) through An-Nisa' (chapter 4) consisting of 4 chapters (suwar).
  2. Al-Ma'ida (chapter 5) through At-Tawba (chapter 9) consisting of 5 chapters.
  3. Yunus (chapter 10) through An-Nahl (chapter 16) consisting of 7 chapters.
