Assalamu-aleikum!

I have heard that the Quraan can be read in 7 manners. Is that true?

Answer

Wa alaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

The Qur’an was revealed in seven “ahruf”, which can be translated as seven dialects, or ways of recitation.  The ten qira’aat that are read today, and which have solid authentic chains of transmission back to the Prophet,  are all part of the seven “ahruf”. 

Wa assalaam
