A question about the difference between Qira’at in 37:12. Surah As-Saffat?

I have a question about Qir’aat. Take Quran 37:12. Surah As-Saffat. In Hafs, it says: “While, YOU wonder”. While in the Doori, it says: “While, I wonder”. This changes the meaning of the sentence. Could you please explain it to me? I would gladly appreciate it.
May Allah bless you with happiness.

The Answer

Wa alikom asslam,

When it comes to the Qira’at of the Quran, some are differences in dialect, but some contain additional meaning, that does not contradict with one another.
Having said that, the example you were asking about, contains both meanings, that Muhammed (صلى الله عليه و سلم) wonders, and Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) also wonders.
So both are correct, in shaa Allah.
I highly recommend reading tafsir At-Tabari for this aya since it contains the full story of in shaa Allah.

Hope this answers the question in shaa Allah

Allah knows best.
Asslamo alikom
