Stories through the Qur’an
The Qur’an is a miraculous book. However, its understanding has been lacking for years. Many Muslims have relied on translations to appreciate the Qur’an. Although we pay great respect to the scholars of the past who have made the Qur’an accessible in English, there is still much left to discover.
Stories are very effective in trying to get an idea or a moral across to an audience. We will go through a story of the Qur’an word by word so that you have a deeper understanding rather than just looking at a translation of the whole verse. Through this class, students will grasp the many gems in the Qur’an and will begin to appreciate the deeper intricacies that are otherwise hidden. The intention for this part of the course is to ignite some kind of spark for the Quran. We hope that students will use this as a platform to begin or further their Arabic studies.
By the end of the class, students will be able to understand a segment from the Qur’an through listening. They will also begin to grasp the vocabulary of the Qur’an which they can apply throughout the book of Allah.
