It is reported from ibn Abbas RA that he spotted a mistake in 17:23. His opinion is recorded in the Tafsir of Razi volume 10 page 30:
Maimon bin Mehran narrated from Ibn Abbas that he said: ‘The actual word in this verse was ‘ووصى’ but ‘و’ got mixed with ‘ص’ that is why it is recited as ‘وَقَضَىٰ رَبُّكَ’. Then he said: ‘Had it been fate then none would have disobeyed Allah as it would have been impossible to go against fate of Allah’. This narration was narrated from him by Dahak and Saeed bin Jubair and this is the Qirat of Ali and Abdullah.
I've shared this report, alongside others, before in a different post but haven't got a conclusive answer on this specifically. Can someone help address this issue? Is the current reading as equally authoritative as the reading of ibn Abbas RA? Was he RA unaware of the variant?
