Why study tafseer?
“[This is] a blessed Book which We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad],
that they might reflect upon its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded.” (38:29)
How much significance do we actually give to the teachings of the Quran? The words of Allah are directly addressing us as a guidance and to benefit our life. The Quran was not revealed just for a certain period or a specific place; but is applicable during all times and places and it is for us to use as a guide to our every complex and confusing world.
The recitation of the Quran is a beautiful act of worship, but we often overlook the fact that thinking and reflecting on the Quran, using the reason and intellect that Allah has blessed us with, to understand the Quran is also an act of worship in itself.
As we ponder on the verses, understand the reason for revelation and comprehend its rulings, only then will its objectives be realised. This is where we can truly discover the wisdom that lies within.
The Tafseer classes at Utrujj Foundation led by Shaykh Haytham Tamim will take you on an enriching journey to understand the Quran verse by verse. As you marvel at the beauty, wisdom and stunning words of Allah the Almighty, it is hoped that you can experience the Quran come alive in your life.
The sessions will explore verse by verse in context to our reality of the modern world.
Shaykh Haytham Tamim with his rich and deep experience will provide traditional explanations as well sharing his own deep insights and reflections throughout the course.
