From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 43, Quarrels
Hadith No: 608
Narrated/Authority of Umar bin Al-Khattab
I heard Hisham bin Hakim bin Hizam reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to that of mine. Allah's Apostle (SAW) had taught it to me (in a different way). So, I was about to quarrel with him (during the prayer) but I waited till he finished, then I tied his garment round his neck and seized him by it and brought him to Allah's Apostle (SAW) and said, "I have heard him reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to the way you taught it to me." The Prophet (SAW) ordered me to release him and asked Hisham to recite it. When he recited it, Allah s Apostle (SAW) said, "It was revealed in this way." He then asked me to recite it. When I recited it, he said, "It was revealed in this way. The Qur'an has been revealed in seven different ways, so recite it in the way that is easier for you."
