Course Overview

This is the sixth course in Qur’anic Understanding Certificate.

Studying and understanding the Qur’an is just as important as reciting and memorising it. This beneficial general-level course encourages us to recite the Qur’an and reflect on it. It helps us to establish a lasting relationship with the Qur’an.

This course is based on a number of classical and contemporary texts. It inspires us by explaining the verses and hadiths which encourage us to engage with the Qur’an. It furthers that inspiration by looking at people who benefitted through their connection to the Qur’an, Finally, the outward and inward etiquette of engaging with the Qur’an is explained.

This knowledge is beneficial for all those who are interested in drawing closer to Allah. Reciting and reflecting on the Qur’an is an act of worship. It is the direct way of benefitting from it, and it is a requirement for the prayers. Doing so with all the outward and inward means ensures one’s recitation is deep and transformative. This is the key purpose of this course.

About the Instructor 

Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat began his studies in Arabic Grammar and Morphology in 2005. After graduating with a degree in English and History he moved to Damascus in 2007 where, for 18 months, he studied with erudite scholars such as Shaykh Adnan Darwish, Shaykh Abdurrahman Arjan, Shaykh Hussain Darwish, and Shaykh Muhammad Darwish.

In late 2008 he moved to Amman, Jordan, where he continued his studies for the next six years in Sacred Law (fiqh), legal theory (usul al-fiqh), theology, hadith methodology, hadith commentary, and Logic with teachers such as Dr. Ashraf Muneeb, Dr. Salah Abu’l-Hajj, Dr. Hamza al-Bakri, Shaykh Ahmad Hasanat, Dr. Mansur Abu Zina, and others. He was also given licenses of mastery in the science of Qur’anic recital by Shakh Samir Jabir and Shaykh Yahya Qandil.

His true passion, however, arose in the presence of Shaykh Ali Hani, considered by many to be one of the foremost tafsir scholars of our time who provided him with the keys to the vast knowledge of the Quran. With Shaykh Ali, he was able to study an extensive curriculum of Qur’anic sciences, tafsir, Arabic grammar, and Arabic eloquence.

When he finally left Jordan for the UK in 2014, Shaykh Ali gave him his distinct blessing and still recommends students in the UK to seek out Shaykh Abdul-Rahim for Quranic studies. Since his return, he has trained as a therapist and has helped a number of people overcome emotional and psychosomatic issues. He is a keen promoter of emotional and mental health.
