Juz' 29

The Quran in general is divided into chapters (surah) and verses (ayat). It is additionally divided into 30 equal sections, called juz . Of note, division into Juzʾ has no relevance to the meaning of the Quran and anyone can start reading from anywhere in the Quran. The divisions of juz do not fall evenly along chapter lines. These divisions make it easier to pace the reading over a month’s period, reading a fairly equal amount each day. This is particularly important during the month of Ramadan, when it is recommended to complete at least one full reading of the Quran from cover to cover. Some use this divisions to facilitate recitation of the Quran in a month, especially during Ramadan when the entire Quran is recited in the Tarawih prayers, reciting approximately one juzʾ a night. 

The 29th juz’ of the Quran includes eleven surahs (chapters) of the holy book, from the first verse of the famous 67th chapter (Al-Mulk 67:1) and continuing to the end of the 77th chapter (Al-Mursalat 77:50). While this juz' contains several complete chapters, the chapters themselves are somewhat short, ranging in length from 20-56 verses each.
