Due to this difference of opinions, their views on the type of ayyu and the interpretation of the āya has also been different.

The present article begins by pointing out the antiquity of the difference that Sībwayh has mentioned when bringing it up, examines its evolution, and makes a deep investigation on the statements expressed concerning the diacritical marking of the āya and all the justifications stated in this regard.
