In the Name of Allah the most Gracious most Merciful

“Embark on a spiritual and enlightening journey, delving into Ulūm al-Qurʾān , the last 10 surahs of the Holy Quran and related personal growth. This online course bridges the divine wisdom contained in these chapters with practical applications for personal growth, offering a pathway to deeper understanding and self-transformation.”

Ulūm al-Qurʾān

The field of ʿUlūm al-Qurʾān refers to groups of principles, rules, and characteristics that coherently relate to some aspect of the Qur’an. There is more to explore in the Qur’an that any human effort can encompass. It is the manifestation of endless marvels that believers are encouraged to ponder, identify, and reflect on in everyday life.

Tafsir means explanation.

It is the science that aids us towards truly understanding the meaning of the Qur’an, based primarily on the explanation of the Prophet (saw) himself and his companions (may Allah be well pleased with all of them). It is an essential subject for every Muslim who wishes to understand the Qur’an. Throughout this course, students will cover the last 10 Surahs of the Qur’an, going over the translation, the causes of revelation, and a detailed explanation of the verses.

Personal Growth:

Understanding the power of thought along with cognitive distortions as well as irrational beliefs that we have developed over time.
