Historic Surah Al-Baqarah Course – Starting This Week

It is now few weeks since the end of Ramadhan and we hope we are still keeping up the momentum and the strength gained through fasting and spending time with the Qur’an. Perhaps there is one very important aspect of the Qur’an that we may not have focused upon enough – that is understanding and receiving guidance from the Qur’an. This is what we want to draw your attention to.

Alhamdulillah, this week, we are starting a historic 2-year programme in Cambridge and Online Worldwide that is unlike any other Qur’an course before. Surah Al-Baqarah – Diploma in Advanced Qur’anic Tafsir Studies is a unique 2-year programme going through the whole of Surah Al-Baqarah in monthly classes. Introducing the programme, Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi says

“Surat al-Baqarah is the longest and most comprehensive surah in the Qur’an. This two-year course represents a serious commitment to go through it in detail so that we understand the breadth and depth of the message of the Qur’an. The aim of tafsir is to connect inwardly and outwardly with the guidance of our Lord, so that we experience a direct relation with Him, and become fully aware of His grace and His mercy to us. A proper appreciation of His grace and mercy generates a strong resolve in our hearts and minds to worship Him and to live in this world in willing obedience to Him. This is the help and guidance that we ourselves asked our Lord to grant us in al-Fatihah, the surah of the Opening. Surat al-Baqarah is the response to that supplication. It inspires, informs, and urges us to worship God and obey Him according to the teaching and example of His Messenger.” – Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi
