Do different verb conjugations change the meaning of the verses of the Quran?

The Details of the Question

- Do different verb conjugations in Ahruf change the meanings of some verses?
- In 2:184, there is a difference in the verse, in the order of Allah, in Hafs and Warsh. One says poor man (singular), the other says poor people (plural).
- Please help me, because this question is my last doubt about Islam.

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The word in question is pronounced in the plural form not only by Nafi’s Warsh narration but also by Ibn Kathir. Others pronounce it as singular.

This one and similar differences are pronunciation (recitation) differences that we call grammatical differences. All of them form a richness of meaning in the Quran, and these recitations have been reported like the other verses of the Quran and have come to the present day both verbally and in the written form without any changes.

Numerous studies have been made on this type of recitation, both in tradition and in the modern period, and they have been examined academically.

There is no room for doubt about the originality and authenticity of the Quran here. Both historical and epistemological values of them have been mentioned; in addition, they have been examined both in classical studies and in many academic works, including the West today.
