Some Confusions!!!
« on: January 12, 2014, 02:52:54 PM »
Assalamualykum.

Sister, Are the present copies of the Quran written in Uthmanic orthography or according to newly developed normal orthography?


http://www.islamic-awareness.org/Quran/Text/Scribal/haleem.html


  I read the above article but couldn't understand many things due to my lack of knowledge in Arabic grammar. I couldn't read the whole article because the more I was reading the more confused I was getting.  :'( :'(For example, it says there are 6 rules in Quranic rasm:

1. The rule of deletion, hadhf
2. The rule of addition, ziyādah
3. The rule of substitution, badal
4. The rule of the hamza,
5. The rule of joining and separating, al-wasl wa-l-fasl
6. The rule of cases where there are two canonical readings but the text is written according to one of them, ma fīhi qirā'ātan fa-kutiba `alā ihdāhumā.

 the first rule involves deletion of alif, ya,lam,nun and waw. Why should we delete them? If they are there in the Uthmanic manuscript, there must be some reasons for adding them!! Why the early Muslims would add things unnecessarily ?Why should we delete them??? I having problems with the first 4 rules. It is said that, this is done for the convenience of the readers. So that they don't face any problem. If it's true, then didn't the early Muslims also had problems in the recitation?
