A juz’ is a thirtieth part of the Qur’an, and the Juz’ ‘Amma is the name of the last thirtieth of the Qur’an. Due to the particular structure of the book, in which the suras decrease in extension gradually, this thirtieth contains almost half the total number of suras, from 78 (Al-Naba’) to 114 (Al-Nas). This juz’ famously includes some of the earliest revelations received by the Prophet in Mecca before the Hijra, often in a highly evocative and rhapsodic language — “as if human language were shattered into a thousand pieces under the pressure of the Infinite Divine Speech.”
