Qira'at

In Islam, Qira'at refers to variants in the recitation of the Quran. There are ten different recognised schools of qira'at, each one deriving its name from a noted Quran reciter or "reader". Each reciter recited to two narrators whose narrations are known as riwaya and named after its primary narrator. Each Rawi has turuq with more variants created by notable students of the master who recited them and named after the student of the master. Passed down from Turuq are wujuh: the wajh of so-and-so from the tariq of so-and-so. There are about twenty riwayat and eighty turuq. Various hadith—where Muhammad listens to recitations of various companions and approves of each of them, or corrects Umar's berating another companion's recitation saying the "Quran has been revealed in seven Ahruf", or claim Muhammad asked the angel Jibreel to teach him different styles of recitation until he had learned seven—provide an Islamic basis for the different variants of the Quran.
