The word Qirat (قراءات) came from the Arabic language and was derived from the term Qirah (قراءة), meaning ‘reading’. This term has been debated by various Quranic scholars in different definitions, where one describes it as the knowledge of pronouncing the verses of the Quran. It is named after the word Qari – one who recites the Holy Quran. Qirat meaning in Arabic is the reading or recitation of something. Qirat meaning in English is similar – the action of reading a piece of writing aloud from memory.

As the Quran is the book of Allah, it is meant to be recited in the way it was revealed. The Quran contains concepts and meanings that have descended to guide us through our lives. It is not only the profundity of the meaning that the verses of the Quran convey but also the magnificent Arabic language it contains which astonished the Quraishi Arabs who had the most eloquent tongue by then. So, the Quran was honored as a true miracle of that time and every time.
