SIPARAH. سيبرة
The Persian term for the thirty juz’, or divisions of the Qur’an. From si “thirty,” and parah, “a portion.”
‘The Qur’an is said to have been thus divided to enable the pious Muslim to, recite the whole of the Qur’an in the month of Ramazin. Muslims generally quote the Qur’an by the Siparah and not by the Sura. [QUR’AN.]
