Detailed About MCQs

After Muhammad’s death, peace and blessings be upon him, Hazrat Abu Bakr initially exercised a policy of laissez-faire as well. This policy was reversed after the Battle of Yamama in 633. Hazrat Abu Bakr was realized that many of those who had died in military campaigns had been memorizers of the Qur’an. During the battle, 70 Muslims who had memorized the Quran were killed. Umar ibn al-Khattab suggested to Caliph Abu Bakr that the entire Qur’an be compiled and written down. Consequently, upon Umar’s insistence, Abu Bakr ordered the collection of the hitherto scattered pieces of the Quran into one copy.
