Title: Weird Variation
Post by: Qualities of Allah on April 02, 2021, 09:33:10 PM
Assalamu Alaykum,
In Quran 2:98, it says:

من كان عدوا لله وملائكته ورسله وجبريل وميكال فان الله عدو للكافرين
 
The word for Michael is ميكال here. However Michael is sometimes spelled ميكائيل instead of ميكال. Like for example, in one dua it says:

اللهم رب جبرائيل، وميكائيل، وإسرافيل، فاطر السماوات والأرض، عالم الغيب والشهادة، أنت تحكم بين عبادك فيما كانوا فيه يختلفون، اهدني لما اختلف فيه من الحق بإذنك، إنك تهدي من تشاء إلى صراط مستقيم

In this dua, Michael is spelled ميكائيل instead of ميكال.  Also, every article I saw writes ميكائيل. The only place that Michael is spelled ميكال is in the Quran. Now why is that?

Wa Alaikum As'salam,

The Glorious Quran has the accurate spelling.  The hadiths don't have the accurate spelling.  The Quran's text is miraculous:
