Sections (rukus) of Quran

This is text and meanings of interpretation arranged according to sections (rukus) as opposed to Surahs (Chapters). The concept of ruku (section) is somewhat unique to people of the Indo-Pak subcontinent. A ruku may be thought of roughly as a paragraph which deals (usually, but not always) with the same subject matter. I haven't been able to log on to the link providing the history of this development.

Update: The text is from, so it should be all right. The recitation is from Quran MP3, which provides recitation from different qaris on an ayah to ayah (verse to verse)  basis. They are trying to get it right, and make corrections when any problems/mistakes are reported. The site also has a nice feature in that it provides meanings and some grammatical (subject, etc) for each word when the mouse hovers over it. What is the translation, and whose is the recitation, it does not say, but they are trying to be accurate.
