Usage notesEdit

This spelling is found in the Qur'an alongside the normal classical spelling إِبْرٰهِيم(ʾibrāhīm). In the influential Cairo edition, it is only found in Surat Al-Baqara (where it is used exclusively), but usage is more mixed in early manuscripts. The reading إِبْرٰهٰم(ʾibrāhām) is used in some reading traditions, notably that of Hisham ibn Ammar, for this spelling, based on the scribal tradition.
