Tafsir ul Qur'an - Surah al Fatiha

Ustadh Alomgir Ali
19 Lessons (3 Months Course)
fee: $80.00

Allaah sent the Qur’aan, in the language of the Arabs, as guidance to mankind. It is a light, a reminder and a conclusive evidence for those who wish to be guided. But how many of us understand the Arabic language? How many of us have contemplated over the Qur’aan and sought to understand and benefit from it?

Soorah al-Faatihah is the greatest chapter of the Qur’aan and there is nothing similar to it in the previous scriptures. This Soorah concisely summarises the message of the entire Qur’aan. It is the first thing a person reads when opening the Qur’aan. Indicating its importance, this Soorah opens the Salaah and it is from its pillars. It is something that is recited at least seventeen times a day and many scholars considered this to be an obligation. For these reasons and more, should it then not encourage you to learn about it? The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said, “The best of you are those who learn the Qur’aan and teach it” [Bukhaaree]

This course is based on ‘The Spiritual Cure: An Explanation to Soorah al-Faatihah’. It is a summary of numerous classical commentaries prepared and translated by Aboo Rumaysah.

"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"
