Variety of Qur'anic Readings: Miraculous and Beneficial

  • Asst. Prof. Khaled Ahmed Hwas Kirkuk University


This paper is divided into two parts: The first part is devoted to the miraculous aspect which is represented by:

(1)-Concession and richness of meaning since the miraculous aspect is equal to the variety of Qur'anic vocabulary and Qur'anic verses and this is related to rhetorics which begins with the beauty of concession and ends with perfection of the miraculous aspect.

(2)-Being void of contradiction despite the existence of variety and substitution among the readings because two readings my differ in pronouncing a word but this difference is a difference of variety rather than contradiction and this, of course, enriches the miraculous aspect of readings.                                                 The second part is devoted to the benefits that are represented by: (1) Applying the linguistic rules which were not known before the Qur'anic readings, such as assimilation and separation. (2) Knowing the accents which includes light sounds, easy pronunciation by substituting certain letters or the difference between one accent and another.
