    mashaAllah, the gems in our Arabic class were a wonderful part of the course, always reminding us of the treasure that Allah offers those who strive to understand and appreciate the Qur’an. and what better motivation to study the language of the Qur’an than to be of those who are better-able to experience the miracle of the Qur’an in each and every rakat of salat!

    alhamdolillah, the storm of Qur’anic Knowledge just keeps washing away ignorance here in Houston:

    (1) we just finished 10 days of Qur’anic Arabic — 30 hours out of an eventual 100-120 hours of Bayyinah courses in the language of the Qur’an.

    (2) now we get ready for two weeks of Ulum-ul-Qur’an with Shaykh Yasir Qadhi starting this weekend at UH! here’s what i wrote about this upcoming class at another site:

    Qur’anic Sciences answers so many questions, mashaAllah, such as “What proof is there that the Qur’an is a miracle,” “Why is the Qur’an called the Speech of Allah,” “Why is Qur’an different from Hadith Qudsee,” “How was the Qur’an revealed to Muhammad, sull Allaho alayhi wa sallam,” “What are the ‘Causes of Revelation,'” “If the Qur’an was revealed in pieces, how did we end up with the Qur’an we have today,” “Is there more than one way to read the Qur’an,” “Has anything ever changed in the Qur’an,” “Are tafseers, translations, and the opinions of orientalists all equally valid interpretations of the Qur’an?” Shaykh Yasir has literally written a (thick — over 400 pages, alhamdolillah) book on Qur’anic Sciences, mashaAllah, so if you ever had a question about the Qur’an, this is the class to take to try to get it answered!

    (3) then inshaAllah, Bayyinah is coming back to Houston at the end of November for a class on Tajweed — the science of proper recitation of the Qur’an, essential for Arabs and non-Arabs alike.

    (4) in December we have TDC — and Nouman is scheduled to be there, too — inshaAllah

    (5) and last (for now) but not least, in April, Nouman intends to bring his newest Bayyinah class to Houston: a whole weekend of nothing but appreciation for the miraculous qualities of the text of the Qur’an, of the Speech of Allah. if the 10 links on this page get you excited, wait, inshaAllah for this class. it should be fantastic, inshaAllah!

    AsSalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah

    Just this morning driving in I listened to a CD on “Understanding the Qur’aan” and this slave of Allah explained why it is important to understand the Qur’aan in the light that it was revealed in and not on our own very very limited understanding of Islam and the events that occured in the time of the Sahaaba and our Rasul S.A.W. Another point made was that in order to FULLY appreciate Al-Qur’aan we need to understand or make an effort to learn Arabic so that when we read we make that connection… Masha Allah and it seems like this is exactly what you are doing. I really wish we had more of these programmes and as readily available in my country.

    Allah bless you all. Khair Insha Allah.
