I know maybe its not a unfamiliar question in Internet. I listened Islamic scholars such as Dr. Zakir - The idea that I've is that the names were created by humans to make more easy process's in identifying AlQuran parts in which the Quran is involved... Such as praying, referencing more easily some part of te AlQuran to a friend... But since I'm skeptic by nature, I would like to know different answers than my own.

How were the Surahs of the Qur'an named?

Even if they're just different views, and different scientific hypothesis, I would like to know them.


Surah names were identified by the Messenger ﷺ. There are multiple hadiths where surah names are mentioned.

More information can be found in this (Arabic) fatwa:
