Course Overview

Understanding the Qur’an opens doors to a deeper knowledge of the Religion and a crucial increase in one’s ability to reflect and focus in the prayer. This course hopes to aid the student in understanding some of the oft-recited chapters of the Book of Allah.

This course is suitable and ideal for an intermediary student who has completed part one of this course.

The course aims to open the students' horizons and expose them to not only understand the literary guidance of the Qur’an but the spirit of the Divine Guidance held within.

This course examines the chapters of the final portion (30th Juz) of the Qur’an. The final portion contains profound descriptions of the Hereafter and an explanation of the core beliefs of Islam.

About the Text

The course is loosely based on the Exegesis of Imam Sabuni, Safwa al-Tafasir (The Cream of Exegesis). Safwa al-Tafasir takes from various different Quranic commentaries and gives the reader a distilled and comprehensive summary. It focuses greatly on the linguistic meanings of Quranic words and terms as well as narrations from the Early Generation commenting on the verses.

Its concise yet profoundly eloquent style distinguishes Safwa al-Tafasir from other summarized commentaries; for this reason, it has an established place in many Islamic seminaries. In the Youth Curriculum, this course serves as a catalyst for the student to broaden their understanding and connection to the Book of Allah Most High and Safwa al-Tafasir is a great place to start.

About the Author

Muhammad ibn Ali al-Sabuni was born in 1930 in Syria and passed away in 2021. Imam Sabuni has a truly unique, simple, and extremely beneficial approach to Quranic exegesis. His method makes learning, comprehension, and understanding easy for the student and gives them a clear understanding of each chapter and verse. He is mainly known for his works in the sciences of the Quran. He also has many works in Islamic poetry, commentary on Prophetic hadith, Prophetic biography, theology, and history. Some of his most famous works are Safwa al-Tafasir, Rawa'i al-Bayan, as well as summaries of the great commentaries of the Quran such as that of Ibn Kathir and Tabari. What makes Imam Sabuni unique is that his studies were not limited to Islamic sciences rather he also studied business, physics, and chemistry.
