Question By : Md. Nasir Uddin

As'salamu alaikum va rahmathullahi va barakathou!!

In some literature I find that there are 6666 verses in the holy Quran but when I add up the individual numbers of verses given in the beginning of each suras in the Quran I find there are only 6236 verses. I would be grateful if you could direct me to the source where the figure of 6666 originates. I shall be ever so grateful to you for your kind reply. Please respond. Jazak Allah.
