My copies of a new edition of Al-Jazarī’s “Našr al-Qirāʾāt al-ʿašr” or “Reviving the Ten Readings” have arrived!! This one is edited by Dr. Ayman Suwayd. Even my cat is interested (I did not put her there)! Let's take this opportunity to talk briefly about Al-Jazarī
His is Abu al-Khayr Šham al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad ibn ʿali ibn Yūsuf Al-Jazarī (d. 833 AH/1429 CE). That’s a lot of Muḥammads! As an aside, I’ve seen few people with more honorific titles than him. He apparently memorized the Quran at 13, led prayers at 14,
and compiled an early book on variant readings at 17! He had numerous teachers, among them the famous Ibn Kaṯīr who gave him a license to issue fatwas. He was Damascene and founded a Quran school in Damascus in addition to serving as a local judge. He traveled extensively.
