Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of works cited in the book 'Revelation and Falsification: The Kitāb al-qirāʾāt of Aḥmad b.Muḥammad al-Sayyārī' In the early ʿAbbāsid period a number of Muslim scholars, both Sunnī and Shīʿī, composed works specifically devoted to variant readings of the Qurʾān. For all Muslims the Qurʾān is the word of God. In the first centuries of Islam, however, many individuals and groups, and some Shīʿīs, believed that the generally accepted text of the Qurʾān is corrupt. The Shīʿīs asserted that redactors had altered or deleted among other things all passages that supported the rights of Ali and his successors or that condemned his enemies.

Keywords: ʿAbbāsid period; ḥmad b.Muḥammad al-Sayyārī; Kitāb al-qirāʾāt; Qurʾān; Shīʿīs; Sunnī
