 Tanzil Quran text closely follows the same standards set by Medina Mushaf. In particular, it considers Bismillahs as part of the Quran text. Each aya in Tanzil Quran text is encoded in one line, leading to a text file with exactly 6236 lines. To avoid adding extra lines and/or using non-standard numbering systems (like giving number 0 to Bismillahs),​ Bismillahs of suras 2 to 114 are encoded in the same line together with the first aya of those suras. This enables us to have Bismillahs in the Quran text file, while keeping the number of lines in the file matching the number of ayas in the Quran. This is in particular useful for those applications who have been using old (Bismillah-less) Quran text files, to easily adopt themselves with Tanzil Quran text. Tanzil Quran text closely follows the same standards set by Medina Mushaf.
