((Abu Abdullah said: “Verily the original Quran which  Jibraeel  (A.S) brought  to
Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) contained 17,000 verses)) (Usool al-Kafi Pg. 671, Lucknow).
 
The present Quran contains 6,236 verses, therefore the  implication of the above mentioned statement is that two thirds of the original Quran is missing!

Keep in mind that Al-Kafi is one of the greatest Shi'i works, and this is what al-islam.org has to say about it:

Al-Kafi is a collection of the traditions taught by the Prophet and the Imams and handed down to the Muslim Community by the disciples of the Imams. The name al-Kafi means “that which is sufficient” that is, the book was intended to be a comprehensive collection of Imami-Shi'i traditions. This is explained by al-Kulaini in his introduction to the work:

“...You wanted to have a book which would be sufficient (for your religious needs) (kafin), which would include all kinds of knowledge ('ilm) of religion, which would be adequate for the student, and to which the teacher might refer. Thus it could be used by anyone who wanted knowledge of religion and of legal practice ('amal) according to sound traditions (athar) from the truthful ones (the Imams) ...”

The importance of al-Kafi as a work of tradition is considerable. It is regarded as one of the four major works of Shi'i traditions. This has led to considerable number of commentaries being written about it by later writers.
