Current Quran Recitation is Wrong acc. to Tusi

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts



I was reading Tusi's book Tahzeeb Al Ahkam and he was speaking about the verse of wudu and if we are to recite by saying arjulikum or arjulakum. 

He said 

"If someone asks: Why don't you read with nasb of the feet since it is what most reciters recite, and it cannot mean anything but washing? We would say: (First) The recitation of jar is the agreed upon recitation and the nasb is disagreed upon because we say that the recitation with nasb is not permissible, and that the recitation that was revealed was with jar."

فإن قيل : فاين انتم عن القراءة بنصب الارجل وعليها أكثر القراء وهي موجبة للغسل ولا يحتمل سواه؟ قلنا : (أول) ما في ذلك ان القراءة بالجر مجمع عليها والقراءة بالنصب مختلف فيها لانا نقول ان القراءة بالنصب غير جائزة وإنما القراءة المنزلة هي القراءة بالجر



This means that it is haram according to Tusi to recite 

وامسحوا برؤوسكم وأرجلَكم إلى الكعبين

and that the correct recitation is 

وامسحوا برؤوسكم وأرجلِكم إلى الكعبين


Tusi then quotes a hadith in which the Imam says that the correct recitation is the same one that he suggested.


Do Shias here agree with this? 


Please do not change the subject. I will not be responding to those attempts.

This is how it is written in the Warsh recitation.


I do not believe that it is. Though I assume that by this you meant that other famous reciters from the seven recited it in this manner, and you would be correct.

The purpose of this thread is to dispel the belief that there is only one recitation and that everything that goes against Hafs is false.
