Understanding the meanings of the Qur’an is the key to achieving deeper levels of reflection and appreciation of our Lord’s address. With more understanding one can achieve a greater connection to the Qur’an and reverence for it, finding serenity in remembrance of Allah through the recitation of His book, ultimately drawing ever closer to Allah and becoming one of the people of the Qur’an in following the example of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.
Drawing on classical commentaries, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani illuminates and expands on the meanings of the verses we most often recite in our daily worship, allowing us to bring more life into our worship. He provides an in-depth explanation of the shorter, more commonly recited Suras of the Qur’an: Sura al Fatiha, the last twelve Suras of the Qur’an, as well as Ayat al- Kursi and the last few verses of Sura al-Baqarah. He also provides a detailed explanation of the Basmalah, and what we really mean when we seek refuge from the devil before reciting the Qur’an, as well as its virtues and how to rectify our intention when reciting it.
