What is it about?

Adnan al-Hamwi al-Olabi's study aims to address successive Quranic vocabulary in the chapter of (Al-Hajj), about whose reading scholars differed. It sheds light on some of the guidance that characterizes the reading grammatically, linguistically or rhetorically that confirms the characteristic of the inimitability with which the Qur'an was revealed to challenge and that enriches the text semantically, interpretationally, and analytically, lending to it such a style that is evident to everyone.

Why is it important?

This is manifested in the application of the effects of successive readings variations and their application on selected Ayahs (verses) of the Chapter of (Al-Hajj).


Variations in successive readings do not carry any contradictions or incongruities in their different meanings. Rather, they enrich the meaning, and provide it with a wealth of Jurisprudential rulings, linguistic denotations and Islamic legislative provisions. It is a type of challenge evidencing the inimitability of the Qur'an, and of facilitation and easement made possible to the nation, and removal of hardships from Muslims in relation to the choice of the method of recital, given the different tongues and the multiplicity of Arabic dialects, while adhering to the rules or principles of preference between recitals.
