How to Approach and Understand the Qur'an

Ustadh Alomgir Ali
15 Lessons (3 Months Course)
fee: $60.00

Many of the Companions would say that if a person wants to know about his relationship with Allah then he should look at his relationship with the Qur’aan. Many Muslims are eager to bridge the gap between themselves and the Quran but unfortunately many of us do not take the correct approach in doing so.
This course will go through the nature of the Qur’aan and the reality of the Muslims responsibility toward it. Students will also learn the effect that the Quran had upon the first generation of Muslims and why it had that effect on them but not on us today. Most importantly, this course aims to provide students with the necessary tools to approach and understand the Qur’aan in the correct manner so that it may have the desired effect on our lives. This course aims to focus the mind so that we may contemplate on the Qur’aan with the right objectives in mind, hence attaining maximum benefit from both recitation and contemplation.
This course is based on Jamal Al Din Zarabozo’s ‘How to Approach and Understand the Qur’aan’.

"I have been studying at Tayyibun Institute since 2008 and last year I moved to Saudi Arabia. Although I was very happy, I soon realized that I could not seek knowledge without first learning the Arabic Language. Whilst learning Arabic I also wanted to seek Islamic knowledge. I saw some online courses but felt that it would not be as good as Tayyibun Institute, so I was very happy when I found out that they have online courses. Even though one might think that their online courses are not as good as the centre, it turned out to be better than going to the centre, not only because I live in Saudi Arabia but mainly because you will be able to study in your own time. From what I have experienced I can say that the courses at Tayyibun Institute (and online) are very much practical. Jazaahum'Allahu Khairan"
