Uloom Ul Qur’an
The Qur’an is the most prized possession for every believer and is the source for our guidance and way of life. It is the message from God to man and therefore of utmost importance to us. 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. To properly grasp its message, one needs first of all to understand its contents exactly as well as the surrounding aspects of it. This course will focus of the relevant surrounding aspects of Qur’aan including how it was compiled, the reasons for revelation, abrogation and the different styles of recitation. This course will also look at the miraculous nature of the Qur’aan and briefly touch upon the science of tafseer. By the end of this course students will have a firm grasp of the sciences of the Qur’aan hence developing a stronger relationship between him and the One Who spoke the very words of the Qur’aan.
This course is primarily taught based upon Sheikh Doctor Mannaa’ Al-Qattaan’s ‘Mabaahith Fee Uloom ul-Qur’aan’ which is in Arabic. Students will be provided with Ahmad Von Denferr’s ‘An introduction to the Sciences of the Qur’aan’ for additional notes.
