Description: The objective of this Halaqa is to assist the attending brothers and sisters in understanding the Qur'an from its original source (the Arabic script). One has to clearly distinguish between the Qur'an and any translation of it in any other language. The Qur'an (in the Arabic script) is the divine word of Allah SWT and thus it is pure and fault-free. In contrast, any translation conveys what the translator understands of the Qur'an and thus involves human effort that is not necessarily correct all the time. As Muslims, we have to make our best effort to learn the language of the Qur'an to be able to read it (and understanding it) feeling the direct connection with Allah SWT.
The approach to be followed in this Halaqa is based on the realization that so many words of the Qur'an are repeated so often throughout the Qur'an. According to one statistics, the vocabulary used in 90% of the Qur'an consists only of 1050 words. Here, Qur'anic surahs will be studied with emphasis on the vocabulary used and the associated grammar. Accumulation of the Qur'anic vocabulary will be gradually achieved.
The only prerequisite for attending the course is the ability of reading the Qur'an.
The Halaqa is held in a classroom setting in the basement of the Masjid every Wednesday from 7:30PM to Maghrib time and is led by Dr. Moustafa Fahmy.
When: Every Wednesday from 7:30PM to Maghrib time
