Gain a deeper understanding of the Holy Quran by studying Tafsir online. This course focuses on understanding the meanings and commands of Allah S.W.T. It is designed to enhance general understanding of Ahkam and the guidance provided by Allah, rather than to produce scholarly views.
Basic knowledge of Arabic grammar, Usul-al-Tafsir, and Ilmul Balagah is necessary for this course. Tafsir is crucial in understanding the Islamic way of life and applying it correctly, as it provides insight into various passages of the Quran.
In our classes, we delve into various aspects of Quranic study. One of the key areas we focus on is Tafsir, which is the study of the Quran by scholars. The goal of Tafsir is to gain knowledge and comprehension of the holy book of Allah, as well as to interpret and clarify its meanings. This includes both the literal or surface level meanings, as well as the deeper, more hidden or metaphorical interpretations. Some scholars may argue that there is no difference between Tafsir and Tawil, which is the study of the inner, esoteric meanings of the Quran. However, to truly grasp Tafsir and its nuances, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the Mufassir, or the commentator of the Quran.
A mufasir should know
To effectively interpret the Qur'an, it is essential to have a strong foundation in one's belief system, as well as a thorough understanding of the Arabic language and its rules. Additionally, knowledge in related sciences, such as the study of Qur'anic narration, is crucial. The ability to comprehend accurately and avoid relying on personal opinions is also vital. When interpreting the Qur'an, it is important to begin with the text itself, seeking guidance from the words and explanations of the Prophet, as well as referencing the reports of the sahaba and tabi'un. Consulting the opinions of other respected scholars is also recommended. This online Tafsir course is currently designed for adult learners. We also offer a separate course specifically tailored for children to learn Tafsir online. Our goal for this course is to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the verses that contain direct commands from Allah S.W.T for humanity. We are currently working towards organizing group classes for this valuable course for sisters in the near future, God willing.
