The word “Maalik”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In Surah Fatihah, I have been exposed to two variants of the word “Maalik”:

1. Meem-aleef laam kaaf: tanzil.net/#1:4

2. Meem laam kaaf: quran.com/1/4-14

Could you please give an authoritative, comprehensive explanation to this geared towards the layman – which includes possible associated translation issues?

Bismillaah

A: These are two different versions of reading the word and both are authentically reported from Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
