The Qur'an is the final message to guide humanity to live a life of peace and submission and to find salvation in the next life. Revealed over a period of 23 years, the 114 chapters of the Qur'an touch upon many different themes, some recurring with various levels of intensity and focus. This is a thematic journey through all of the major themes present in a particular surah. The course is designed to teach the quranic perspective based on a Thematic exploration and gives the student an appreciation for divine guidance and solutions to everyday problems without overwhelming themselves with intense Tafseer.
The Fall 2017 Course will focus specifically on Surah Ali "Imran
The main topics of this Surah are Tawhid, Prophethood and the truth of the Qur' an. As Surah al-Baqarah discussed the issues related to Bani Israel, this Surah discusses some issues related to the Christian community and their religious positions. It also discusses the subjects of Hajj, Jihad, Zakat and Riba. It ends, like Surah al-Baqarah, with a du'a.
This Surah consists of 200 verses divided in 20 sections.
