THE VERSE-COUNT CODES OF THE READINGS



              This  citation  is  found  in  verse  75  of  the  Kûfa  v.-count,  which
              corresponds  to  two  verses  in  the  other  ten  verse-counts,  but
              numbered differently.

              In  the  ten  v.-counts,  verse  75  of  the  Kûfa  v.-count  splits  into  two
                                                              1
              verses  in  the  same  location.  But  in  six  v.-counts ,  these  verses  are
                                                     2
              numbered 74 and 75, and in the other four , they are numbered 75 and
              76. However, the expression "the Hour" is always mentioned in the
              second verse, that is, depending on the v-counts, in a verse 75 or 76.
