TEN QRIA’AT COURSE (ADVANCED)
Now, you can learn ten Qirat online with the best teachers who belong to Egypt. Qarabic Academy facilitates interested students with this opportunity.
Quran, Qira’at refers to the readings, and technically it means the technique of recitation of the Holy Quran. Originally, there exists ten recognized schools of Qira’at, and each of them derives its name from the famous reader of the Holy Quran recitation.
What are the ten Qirats?
Let’s understand what these ten Qirat actually mean. They donot mean difference in voices or style, in actual these are minute differences in pronunciation, letters, and Harakat.
It is more like comparison between two different books of Quran and you find differences between them. To be more clear in this matter, it is best to go back to the times of the Prophet (PBUH) and Islamic history.
Most of the people in the times of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were uneducated and they had their own dialect belonging to a specific tribe just like any other language e.g. English of British and America. British and American English can be distinguished in terms of spelling and pronunciation.
The same difference existed at that time where they had a different dialect of Quraish which was the tribe of Holy Prophet (PBUH), Yaman, and Hudair, etc. these differences had no impact on the meaning of the Holy Quran.
How these ten qirats evolved?
When Al-Quran was revealed to Prophet (PBUH), the angel Gabriel (AS) came and recited the Quran to him and the Prophet of Allah recited back to him in one dialect.
Then Prophet pleaded the angel to increase the dialect so he did until he reached seven. These dialects had the same meaning but the pronunciation was different.
Following Ahadith provide reference to the particular event:
1- Ibn ‘Abbaas narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Jibreel recited the Qur’aan to me in one harf, and I recited it back to him, but I requested him to increase (the number of harf) and he continued to increase it for me, until we stopped at seven ahruf.”
Ibn Shihaab az-Zuhree (d. 124 A.H.), one of the narrators of the hadeeth, said, “It has reached me that these seven ahruf are essentially one (in meaning), they do not differ about what is permitted or forbidden.” 383
2- ‘Ubay ibn Ka’ab reported that the Prophet (PBUH) was once on the outskirts of Madeenah (near the tribe of Banoo Ghifaar) when Jibreel came to him and said, “Allaah has commanded that you recite the Qur’aan to your people in one harf.”
The Prophet (PBUH) replied, “I ask Allaah’s pardon and forgiveness! My people are not capable of doing this!” Jibreel then came again and said, “Allaah has commanded you to recite the Qur’aan to your people in two ahruf.”
The Prophet (PBUH) again replied, “I ask Allaah’s pardon and forgiveness! My people are not capable of doing this!” Jibreel then came a third time and said, “Allaah has commanded you to recite the Qur’aan to your people in three ahruf.”
The Prophet (PBUH) replied for a third time, “I ask Allaah’s pardon and forgiveness! My people are not capable of doing this!” At last,
Jibreel came for the fourth time, and said, “Allaah has commanded you to recite the Qur’aan to your people in seven ahruf, and in whichever harf they recite, they would be right. 384”
3- ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab narrated, “I was sitting in the masjid when I heard Hishaam ibn Hakeem recite Soorah al-Furqaan. I was almost about the jump on him in his prayer, but I waited until he finished, and then grabbed him by his garment and asked him, ‘Who taught you to recite in such a manner?’”
He replied, ‘It was the Prophet (PBUH) himself!’ I responded, ‘You are mistaken, for indeed I learnt this soorah from the Prophet (PBUH) and it was different from your recitation!’
Therefore, I dragged him to the Prophet (PBUH) and complained to him that Hishaam had recited Soorah al-Furqaan in a manner different from what he (PBUH) had taught me.
At this, the Prophet (PBUH) told me to let go of Hishaam, and asked him to recite Soorah al-Furqaan. Hishaam recited the Soorah in the same way I had heard him before. When he finished, the Prophet (PBUH) said, ‘It was revealed this way.’ He then asked me to recite the same soorah.
When I had finished, he (PBUH) said, ‘It was (also) revealed this way. Indeed, the Qur’aan has been revealed in seven different ahruf, so recite whichever one is easy for you.’” 385.
In conclusion, the Holy Quran was recited in seven different dialect that were allowed by Allah based upon 7 different dialect at that time in the Arabian Peninsula. After the death of the Prophet, the Companions understood it and spread it to others as well.
But the once Islam spread and people of different Area met, they found these differences. For this once Companmion suggested the Khalifah Usman Bin Affan (RA) to combine the Ummah on one Mushaf (Book).
The the Khalifah chose the Qureshi dialect for the Ummah. Other Mushaf were forgotten. But the seven recitations remains in the society from the Qureshi Mushaf in reading only not in the shape of books.
