7. The entire Surah Hud (Surah11)

8. The entire Surah Isra (Surah17)

9. The entire Surah Ikhlas (Surah112)

The scholars have documented various reasons for which a particular verses or an entire surah was revealed more than once. Some of those reasons are:

3. To illustrate the honor/significance of that verse.

4. Sometimes, the second revelation was in a different dialect.
