This commentary is written for those who have already completed the study of the
Shāṭibiyyah and the Durrah . Therefore, I will not explain any of the technical terms
because the student should be familiar with them by now.
The main difference between the 10 Qirāʾāt via the Ṭayyibah, known as the Major 10 Qirāʾāt (Qirāʾāt al-ʿAshr al-Kubrā) and the Minor 10 Qirāʾāt, via the Shāṭbiyyah and the Durrah, are the numerous ṭuruq in the former. It is therefore imperative for any student of the Ṭayyibah to understand how Ibn al-Jazarī has layed out the ṭuruq in it.
