Orientalists have also made researches on this issue and the present article reviews four relevant viewpoints, which mainly assume a four-stage classification. In the end, the writer concludes that one of the mistakes common among all of them is their statemant according to which verses revealed in Makka are different in style from those revealed in Madina.
