Mr. Mustapha, you stated that, "Umar(RA) once heard Hisham(RA) reciting some portions of the Holy Qur'an different from the way he memorised it. Since Umar and Hisham could only have heard and learned the recitation of the Holy Qur'an from Muhammad(PBUH), why were their recitations different? Why would Muhammad(PBUH) recite "7 Ahruf (7 different Arabic dialects)" to his students? Did Gabriel teach 7 different Arabic dialects to Muhammad(PBUH) and if he did, why?
