The best explanations I've read of verses from the Qur'an make reference to the time they were revealed, as these give practical examples and context for the verse. However, finding such information myself is difficult (in my experience). There are plenty of translations of the Qur'an and hadith available (online and in print), and Q&A sites like this, but is there a widely accepted way of matching hadith with verses from the Qur'an, or any tools for doing this? Or is it just a case of searching and asking on a verse by verse basis and hoping to stumble across the information?
Those tools or methods specifically available to lay people would be most helpful, as I've little to no access to a mosque or place of specialist Islamic learning nearby to ask questions on specific verses. My apologies if this is too simple a question or is tagged incorrectly.
