The fundamental differences of the readings are extracted from these seven dialects. Likewise, with Jibrīl Amīn, during the month of Ramadan, the Prophet ﷺ would revise the Qur’ān, including wordings, detailed variations, semantics and meanings.
They were as follows:
1. Altering a letter with another, alongside a change in it’s meaning, without changing the written version.
