Modules are as follows:

Diploma in Qur'an and Tafsir Studies I - Juz' Tabarak Part 1

Explores the first half of Juz’ Tabarak from Surah al-Mulk to Surah al-Jinn. These are some of the most powerful surahs in the Qur’an.

Explores the second half of Juz Tabarak from Surah al-Muzzammil to Surah al-Mursalat. This part contains two striking surahs that teach the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam how to prepare and carry out his mission of da`wah. Then the rest of the surah alert us the reality of this world and more importantly the reality of the afterlife.

Diploma in Qur'an and Tafsir Studies III - Juz' 'Amma Part 1

Diploma in Qur'an and Tafsir Studies IV - Juz' 'Amma Part 2

Explores explores the second half of the Juz Amma from Surah al-A’alaa to Surah al-Naas.
