Suras are considered by the Islamists to be the collection of the words spoken by the Prophet Muhammad as bestowed from Allah. Moreover, Meccan suras are the ones spoken in Mecca, which takes about two-thirds of the whole suras, while Medinan Suras are the spoken words of Prophet Muhammad in Medina, which takes about one-third of the suras.

The Meccan suras, though more in quantity, but they are short ones, while the Medinan suras are prolonged ones. The Meccan suras are a remembrance of pagan soothsayers, which commences with oaths of which celestial objects are involved, such as stars.

The Medinan suras, on the other hand, are collections of the history of the earlier laws and prophets, including the criticisms against Jews and Christians. In the Meccan suras, Prophet Muhammad described himself as other prophets, such as Isaiah and Jeremiah. He also referenced the Bible and gave respect to it. The Medinan suras are more directed to his followers.
