Manzil (Arabic: منزل‎, plural منازل manāzil) is the word for one of seven parts of roughly equal length into which the Qur'an is divided for the purpose of reciting the entire text in one week.

They are:

  2. Al-Maida (5) through At-Tawba (9)
  3. Yunus (10) through An-Nahl (16)
  4. Isra' (17) through Al-Furqan (25)
  5. Ash-Shuara' (26) through Ya-Seen (36)
  6. As-Saffat (37) through Al-Hujarat (49)
  7. Qaf (50) through An-Nass (114)

It follows this pattern:

  1. The first 4 chapters
  2. The next 5 chapters
  3. The next 7 chapters
  4. The next 9 chapters
  5. The next 11 chapters
  6. The next 13 chapters
