The shortest verse in the Quran
Fatwa No: 116616

Question

which versue is smallest versue of Holy QUran ?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

The shortest verse in the Quran upon which there is no controversy that it is a verse could be the Saying of Allaah (which means): {Dark green [in color].}[Quran 55:64], {مدهامتان}. However, there is a difference of opinion on some other verses like the Saying of Allaah (which means): {By time}{والعصر}[Quran 103:1], {The Most Merciful} {الرحمن}[Quran 55:1], and some other beginnings of chapters like {Alif, Lam, Meem} {ألم}, and {Ha, Meem} {حم}. Some scholars  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them considered each of these words as a separate verse, whereas some others did not consider them as such.

Allaah Knows best.
