Then, for reference to the verses of Qur'an, it is written as follows:

اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ (1) خَلَقَ اْلإِنْسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ (2) اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ اْلأَكْرَمُ (3) الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ (4) عَلَّمَ اْلإِنْسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ (5)

(1) Recite in the name of your Lord who created, (2) Created man from a clinging substance, (3) Recite, and your Lord is the Most Generous, (4) Who taught by the pen, (5) Taught man that which he knew not. [10 pt].

Direct quotations are indicated by writing the year followed by a colon and page number, while indirect quotations only mention the year.
