Answer

b.

Explanation

Because

1) it is driven from al-Qar meaning ‘to collect’.

2) It is driven from ‘Qara’ (to recite).

  • Thus, it is called ‘the Quran’ for it is a Book to be recited (73: 4), or because the revelation began by ‘Read’ (96: 1). The second opinion (driven from the root ‘to recite’) seems more accurate.
