How many total verses in the Holy Quran?
There are several answers given to us.
Majority would answer 6,666 verses.
Others would answer 6,240 verses, 6,226 verses or other answers in the range of 6,000-7,000 verses.
We read the the same Quran throughout the world so there should be one answer only.
It may seem trivial but it is important to know the fact. Furthermore, we can't add or delete any verse from the Holy Quran. Therefore there should be only 1 answer to this question.
To put the debate to rest, I decided to calculate the number of verses in the Holy Quran using MS Excel spreadsheet.
The definite answer is 6236 verses
