President of Maqasid Institute Global
In this series of 30 episodes, Dr. Jasser Auda introduces an objective- or maqasid-based approach to Surat Al-Baqarah. The Surah in its entirety aims to outline the Islamic worldview and set the foundations of the Muslim Ummah. Each episode will cover a cross-sectional theme connecting a number of the Surah’s verses and integrating them into formative principles, overarching concepts and guiding objectives. Related Prophetic Hadiths are linked to the verses and themes. Links are also made with many current topics including creed, jurisprudence, history, science, language, charity, economics, politics, food, environment, mosques, community, and family.
