RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $720Goal: $3500

Suras of the Qur'an[edit]

The Qur'an was not written in chronological order; instead, it was arranged after Muhammad's death from (roughly) longest to shortest. The following shows the traditional order with Marmaduke Pickthall's titles[1] and the mainstream chronological order.[2][3][4]
