Sura Length by Mean Verse Length

The Mean Verse Length by Sura chart (found under the ‘Charts’ menu and then under ‘Sura & Verse Lengths’) shows you the length of each sura in terms of its average (i.e. arithmetic mean) verse length.

1 Suras to Show. By clicking the buttons, you can choose whether to plot every sura, just Meccan suras, or just Medinan suras on the chart.
2 Sort By. You can either sort your chart by sura (so sura 1 is drawn first and sura 114 last), or you can sort your chart by length (meaning suras with a longer average verse length will appear first).

Chart Columns. Point your mouse at a column and Qur’an Gateway will show you a tooltip with the exact value in it. You can also click a column to “drill down” and see a chart of the individual verse lengths (by words) within this particular sura.
