ABOUT THE COURSE:
“In our post-9/11 world, the Quran is becoming a more public document in the West than it has ever been throughout its history. Ultimately, this has the potential to validate misunderstanding as easily as it affords insight into the meaning of the text for Muslims. The Study Quran (and this course) could not be more timely…”

This 2 day course has been designed to initially debunk and clarify so called “hate” speech and “violent verses of the Quran and thereafter enlighten and inform the student on the true beauty, meanings and universal message of the Quran of all who seek to understand the Holy Writ of Islam!

ABOUT THE TEXTBOOK
The Beneficial Effusion in Forty Hadith on The Excellence of the Clear Qur’an – by Mulla ‘Ali al-Qari
It is not possible to fully grasp the true gravity of the Qur’an, but this remarkable collection gathers forty hadith that each indicate the majesty of the Book of Allah. Whether describing the manifestation of the Qur’an as an intercessor on the Day of Judgement, or its effect on those who read it, every hadith in this collection is profoundly inspiring and likely to have a deeply transformative effect on the reader.
