I correct myself. Sorry for any confusion. It is short to long. Never the less still interesting.

The Qur'an is the collection of holy scriptures of Islam. It is divided into 114 Suras (chapters) of unequal length. Except for the first Sura the earliest Meccan suras are shorter, and they each grow longer as time goes on. The earliest are also more similar to the Jewish style of admonishing people to reform and warning them of coming judgment. All suras are supposed to represent material dictated to Muhammad from God through the angel Gabriel. The Qur'an is thus believed to be the direct Word of God and must be obeyed without question.

Actually, according to Trifkovic, you were right the first time. From the PGalt's Jihad Watch link above:

"Meanwhile, Serge tells me: "To avoid misunderstanding, let me point out that my 'explanation' to D'Souza about the arrangement of the Suras in the Kuran ('They happen to be arranged by SIZE, from short to long!') was not a slip, it was the final proof-positive of his fraud, as HE DID NOT CORRECT ME but went on babbling..."

Kind of funny. Srdija gave D'Souza enough rope to hang himself and he obliged!
