Quick Question Regarding “Thus We Have Made You a Middle Nation” Verse


“And thus we have made you a just community that you will be witnesses over the people
and the Messenger will be a witness over you.” 
The Noble Quran 2:143




As you know Surah 2:143 happens to be the middle verse of Surah Baqarah (Chapter 2 of the Quran) which states, “And thus have made you a middle nation”.

What if someone were to object and say that you can find other different numbering schemes of the Quarn, for example what, if Basmala is counted as a verse? 



We can reply that we are simply going by the numbering which just so happens (we would say by the will of Allah) to be most widespread. On this basis the verse number is half the number of verses in the chapter.

But if, for argument’s sake one started numbering from the ‘Basmala’ then each verse number will be increased by one, and the chapter would have a total of 287 verses. That would also mean that the verse in question will now be numbered 144, and in that case there will be 143 verses before it and 143 verses after it. Even then it would be in the middle of the Surah.
