    Qirat is reading. Lehja is accent. To adopt an accent is not required. Reading is required. One should be able to read Quran .

    If an example can be given to clarify the difference. Thankyou

    We non English people, read and speak English in our own accent. But there two standard accents, British and American. If we adopt their accent too, it seems good, but mere being able to speak and read English is considered good enough. The same goes for Arabic and the reading of Queam. We are not obliged to adopt Arabian accent, but if we do, this will be good.

    So then if we read today ض as daad or zaad, or ذ as dhaal or zaal, that is accent which is not obligatory to adopt. Then what will we call as Qiraat from Prophet SAW which is obligatory?

    Yes you are right. We are not obliged to utter the sound of Daad or Zaad as the Arabs do. We have our own sound of ض ذ for Arabic. This is Qirat.

    Of course from the prophet came both qirat along with accent. But we are obliged to read Quran, with or without Arabian accent.

    If uttering the sounds as arabs do is Qiraat, then what is accent (an example)?

  • Dr. Irfan Shahzad

    Uttering the sounds of the words as the Arabs do is accent. Qirat can be done without a particular accent.

    But is there any example from Quran that if you read Quran like this and this then you’re making a difference in accent and that’s not a problem but if you read Quran like this and this then you are making a change in it’s Qiraat which is transmitted to us by the Prophet SAW himself and it’s not allowed to read in that way?

    The difference you can find in the way of reading of Quran by, for example, an ordinary Pakistani and Arab is the difference of accent, though they read the same text.

    And Qiraat then, how can one make a difference in Qiraat?

  • Dr. Irfan Shahzad

    The answer is already given. or elaborate it further to let it clear, what you mean by that?

    Can you please elaborate that with some example. Like lehja is actually accent that i have understood that e.g in urdu while reading Quran if you don’t differentiate between ذ and ز as Arabs do then it’s lehja. And making that difference is allowed while reading Quran. الذین ضالون is an example. Now arabs read that as “alladheena ddalloon” and pakistanis as “allazeena zaalloon”. That difference is accent (lehja) and allowed. But what’s called making a difference in reading Qiraat (with an example)?

    And sorry for making this discussion too long.

    Reading is just reading. the way one reads. and a particular accent in reading is lehja.
