salam aleykum, my question is, what's the zaidiyya view regarding the 7 letters of Quira'at and Ahruf? And I'd like to ask also about the compilation of the Quran within the zaidiyya literature.

Thanks in advance

Salam aleykum

Wa alaykum as salaam wa rham!

Thank you for your question! According to texts such as Kitaab al-Assaas by Imam al-Qaasim b. Muhammad (as), we believe in the seven qiraa'at of the Qur'an. The most relied upon by the Ahl al-Bayt is the qiraa'at of Medina also known as the qiraa'at of Naafi'.

As for the compilation of the Qur'an, we say that it was compiled and arranged during the lifetime of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny. The Qur'an compilation of Uthman was due to the preponderance of copies of the Qur'an which included various tafsir which was written in the text of the Qu'ran. What Uthman did was bring together the Qur'an as a master copy without the various tafsir included. [Ref. Kitaab al-Idaah]

And Allah knows best!
