Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
In surah al Anbiya ayah 88, there is a small noon above the word after wa kathaalika. How should we read that word?
Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,
in the phrase,
, has only one
written in the 'Uthmani rasm of the mushaf.
This is a word in which some of the different qira'aat read it with two
, and others with only one. The mushaaf was then written with only one
and a small
written in by later scholars for those reading in the qira'aat which use two. In the riwaayah of Hafs, we read the word with two
, and thus the small one is written in the copies of the Qur'an meant for reading the way of Hafs.
