COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is on the most fascinating topic that a human being, not just a Muslim, could learn about. It is the Qur’an. It is the book that Allah sent.

This is a fascinating topic because this is a very different book. This module is about welcoming you to the general features and the nature of this book.

This is a book in which Allah (SWT) – God – is speaking; and that is different from any other book: religious or non-religious in any other tradition.

There is no other book in the world in which Allah is speaking. Even if you look at the books of the other originally heavenly religions in which there is a Prophet speaking. If you read the Bible, sometimes Jesus would say that God is saying this. Or Moses would say that God is saying this… and so on. But this is a book where actually God is speaking.

From the beginning to the end, Allah is speaking to us. And that is a very different approach to that book, because when you see that Allah is speaking then Allah is telling us things.
