Why the Quran course?
Reading the Quran is important, it’s the Word of Allah. The poetic powerful words from our mouths travel to our ears, move our hearts and change our lives. By reading it we can learn more about the Loving, Caring and Most Kind Lord of the world. But understanding its message isn’t easy. So, what do we do when we get stuck? The Quran course will introduce the essential features of the Quran: you’ll learn what the text is like (Structure, style and themes), what lies behind the text (circumstances of revelation), and what is the lesson for me (Moral, spiritual and social values). These principles and descriptions are from the tried and tested methods of science of Quranic Hermeneutics, interpreting the Quran (Usul al-Tafsir) formulated by traditional scholars like Jalal udeen Suyuti (d. 1505) and Shah Wali Allah (d.1762). You will learn to ask questions to dig deeper into the meanings and message of the Quran. Our ten sessions course provides you a solid basis to start your lifelong journey of discovering the Quran.
