Who gave the Qur'an its verse system? I heard Muhammad ordered the chapters and ordered the particular revelations within the chapters, but did Muhammad also order how to divide up the revelations into specific verses?

Hello Glorthac,

Welcome to the discussions at IslamiCity
 
Good question.
 
This verse system , was given by Allah swt not by Prophet Muhammad {Pbuh}.The verses and the chapters were arranged in the way Qur'an is ,by Prophet Muhammad as he was taught by Allah. After the whole Qur'an was revealed, Angel Gabriel was sent to Prophet and recitation of Qur'an was revised before him for 3 times. This is the same order, we read Qur'an. I hope the link below shall help you understand better, insha Allah, rather than my post.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “All the descendants of Adam are sinners, and the best of sinners are those who repent."

 Allah Almighty says "It is upon Us to collect and compile it (i.e., the Quran) and to promulgate it:  (The Noble Quran, 75:17)"
