longest

Longest word in the Quran is Fa’asqainakumuh (فأسقيناكموه). It is found in Chapter (Surah) 15 verse (Ayat) 22. It means: “so he will save you from them” Qur’an 15:22 And We have sent the fertilizing winds and sent down water from the sky and given you drink from it. And you are not its retainers. Arabic: وَأَرْسَلْنَا الرِّيَاحَ لَوَاقِحَ فَأَنزَلْنَا مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَسْقَيْنَاكُمُوهُ وَمَا أَنتُمْ لَهُ بِخَازِنِينَ

Compilation

General overview Written record of the Qur’an was made while Prophet Muhammad (عليه السلام) was still living. It was recited by the Prophet from memory  and written down by scribes. Scribes wrote down revelation being recited on palm leaves, leather, and bones. Each chapter (Surah) and verse (Ayat) was arranged in the order they were revealed. The Qur’an initially was not compiled into one volume. Although some of the companions (Sahaba) of the Prophet did make personal copies for themselves

Explanations

Some like to use hadeeths as an explanation on the Qur’an. The problem with this is many who use hadeeths in such a manner typically end up going straight to hadeeths. In effect bypassing or even ignoring the context for a particular verse (Ayat).
