The Noble Qur'an, the mushaf of qirāʼat of Imām ʻĀṣim al-Asadī al-Kūfī

Out of the ten qirāʼāt of the Holy Qurān, the qirāʼat of Imām ʻĀṣim is the most widely available qirāʼat today and is read in almost all the Islamic countries (a few have other recitations).

There are two riwāyas (narrations) of this qirāʼat, which stand like two branches and have minor differences. The riwāyah of Imām Ḥafṣ, called “Ḥafṣ ʻan ʻĀṣim”, is the default riwāya. The other one is the riwāya of Imām Shuʻbah.

This article lists the links to the editions of the Holy Qurān based on these two riwāyahs.

1 Ḥafṣ ʻan ʻĀṣim

As this is the default riwāyah in most of the Islamic counties, there are numerous editions available. Here, I have tried to provide links to some of the good quality official or acclaimed editions.

Note that there are different writing standards in different countries. The middle eastern standard is used by the Arabic speaking countries and is the most popular one. Other standards include the South Asian and the Turkish standards. The Maghrib standard is also different, but it uses another riwāyah, namely Warsh ʻan Nāfiʻ.

1.1 Madīnah Edition

Muṣḥaf Madīnah is the most acclaimed and widely distributed edition, based on the Middle Eastern writing standard. It is designed by the government of Saudi Arabia, and the design is used by many publishers in different colors and other stystic variations. The official edition is issued by Saudi Arabia. The complete text of the Qurān is manually designed with a calligraphic style on 604 pages.

1.1.1 Graphical editions

The Madīnah edition does not use standard font technology, the whole Mushaf is manually designed with beautiful hand-written graphics. The original files contain vector graphics, which are the best quality version. Following files contain vector graphics for the main text and are easier to read on any screen size.

1.3 South Asian Editions

The South Asian writing standard is used in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and some other countries. The differences mostly relate to the placement of Aerābs (diacritics), the use of Rukūs, and some other minor differences. The recitation is the same: Ḥafṣ ʻan ʻĀṣim.

Saudi Arabian edition, 172 MB

1.4 Tajweed Editions

Some editions have colored letters to indicate rules of Tajweed, for easier recitation by Tajweed rules.

Muṣḥaf Madīnah is the edition printed by Saudi Arabia in the default Arabic style for Arabic and International readers.
