This course will look at each verse in both Arabic and its English translation. Umm Sahl will guide the student through the Arabic, pointing out meanings through the vocabulary, syntax, grammar, and balagha, that are not directly discerned from the outward purport of the wording.
About the Course
The Quran was revealed in Arabic, and its pure divine provenance and miraculousness is only found in its original form. After the explanation in English, the student will listen to the recitation of the the verse in Arabic. This will be repeated two or three times, so what was expounded on in English can be understood and experienced in Arabic.
Through this didactic process, the student will be able to close their eyes and envisage how the Prophet, upon him be peace, introduced the revelation of the Quran to the Companions and how they heard the Quran being revealed for the first time, insha Allah.
