Citation coranique probablement erronée dans la plus ancienne lettre arabe datée d'Égypte

Abstract : Qurʾānic studies specialists have often overlooked citations from the Qurʾān included within legal papyri. This paper will discuss two particular verses from sura 65 quoted in a familial letter dated to the early second century Hiǧra: « Man yattaqi Llāha yaǧʿal lahu [min amrihi] maḫraǧan (2) wa-yarzuqhu min ḥayṯu lā yaḥtasibu (3) ». This constitutes the earliest known example of Qurʾānic quotation and using these Qurʾānic quotations I will provide a more way-out and new interpretation, ignoring subsequent codification of the Qurʾān. Furthermore this paper will look at traditional sources such as tafsīr, qirāʾāt, asbāb al-nuzūl etc. along with the most recently discovered Qurʾānic fragments in order to consider the context of these citations and verify the hypothesis of an eccentric lecture of the Qurʾān probably abandoned by later codification.
