Pearl of Wisdom

Man La Yahduruhu al-Faqih narrates from Maymun b. Mihran, 'I was once sitting in the presence of al-Hasan b. ?Ali (AS) when a man came to him, saying, ?O son of the Prophet of Allah, verily x is claiming money from me that I owe him and he wants to arrest me.' So he replied, 'By Allah, I do not have money to pay your debt on your behalf.' So he asked, 'Then talk to him.' So he (AS) put on his sandals, whereupon I asked him, ?O son of the Prophet of Allah, have you forgotten the fact that you are in a state of retreat?' So he replied, 'No, I have not forgotten, but I have heard my father (AS) narrating from the authority of [my grandfather], the Prophet of Allah (SAWA) that he had said, 'He who strives to fulfil a fellow Muslim brother's need is as if he has worshipped Allah, Mighty and Exalted, for nine thousand years, fasting during the day and standing in prayer at night.?

Question : #407 Category: Holy Qur'an
Subject: Difference of K and Q of K-Quran
Question: AA, what would be the difference in the meaning of the word Quran spelt with K and Q. As KORAN and as QURAN?Thank you.
Answer: All spelling is a matter of convention; there is no such thing as a correct spelling.

In English, the Arabic /q/ and /k/ are both adequately signaled by English K. In German the spelling is still Koran, and in French they prefer Coran. In archaic English the preferred term was apparently Alcoran, based on Arabic al-qur'aan the Koran, occasionally leading to the solecism the Alcoran.
