Daruliqra online Quran Academy brings you a course for learning the ten Qirat types. Our tutors are professional in this and ensure the proper learning of all Qirat forms.
What is Qirat?
The word Qirat comes from the Arabic word qira’ which literally means reading. Qirat, therefore technically is the reading of the Holy Quran. In Quranic terminology, it refers to the proper way in which the Holy Quran is recited. It establishes a melody, a style to the recitation.
The Ten Qiraat
Traditionally, there are ten schools of Quranic Qirat. They are named after the reader of that Qirat. It comes down to us as transmitted by their students. These are generally categorized as Mutawatir and Mashhur
Mutawatir refers to the transmission which has independent chains of authorities so wide as to rule out the possibility of any error and on which there is consensus of Ulama of that time. The seven transmissions that are termed Mutawatir are from the following reciters:
1)Nafi’ (d. 169/785)
2) Ibn Kathir (d. 120/737)
3) Abu ‘Amr ibn al-‘Ala’ (d. 154/762)
4) Ibn ‘Amir (d. 154/762)
5) ‘Asim (d. 127/744)
6) Hamza (d. 156/772)
7) al-Kisa’i (d. 189/904)
- Mashhur are comparatively less transmitted in number. But the margin of error here too is minimal. These are believed to be learnt from:
1) Abu Ja’far (d. 130/747)
2) Ya’qub (d. 205/820)
3) Khalaf (d. 229/843)
The word Quran literally means the “read one”. It implies that Quran is the most read book in the world. It, therefore, is necessary to ensure the corrected reading of this book. Since, the reading and its pronunciation is passed on from person to person, it is our duty to make sure it is well looked after. Also that our transmission is certified correct.
This responsibility of transferring the knowledge of the Qirat of the Quran is taken by our tutors. Our well learnt professionals are quite occupied with this field and are well aware of dealings. They make sure that all their students learn the best.
