Which was the first qira'at released, meaning the most ancient qiraat way of reading we have now?

I think its warsh or khalaf or hamza is that right?

Answer
Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
All of the qira'aat which are mutawaatir (have solid authentic chains) came from the mouth of our beloved Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him, as part of the seven "ahruf" or authentic ways of reciting which Jibreel, alayhi assalaam, taught the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah upon him. There is none of the different qira'aat which precedes the other in time as the Qur'an was revealed in the seven ahruf and the Prophet, peace and blessing of Allah upon him received all the different ways of recitation when he received the wahy (revelation).   Yes, the Qur'an was revealed over time, but the different qiraa'at came with each revelation.
