You are invited to attend our weekly Quraan Tafseer halaqas with Dr. Ahmed Al-Jebawi. Alhuda Foundation hosts this halaqa every Tuesday between Maghreb and Ishaa. .All matters concerning the Islam is based on proper understanding of the guidance from Allah. Without the help of tafsir there would be no right understanding of the different passages of the Quran.
كِتَابٌ أَنزَلْنَاهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَارَكٌ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوا آيَاتِهِ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُوْلُوا الْأَلْبَابِ
Imam Suyooti, author of the monumental work in Uloom al-Quran al-Itqaan says,
(The science of tafseer) is the most honorable of all sciences for three reasons. The first reason is with respect to its topic. It deals with the Speech of Allah, which contains every kind of wisdom and virtue. It contains pronouncements about what has passed, reports of what will happen and judgments concerning what happens between people. Its wonders never cease. The second reason is with respect to its goal. Its goal is to lead mankind to the firm Handhold of Allah, and to the true happiness, one that does not end. The third reason is with respect to the great need for this science. Every aspect of this religion and this world, in the near or distant future, is in need of the sciences of the sharee’ah and knowledge of the religion, and this knowledge can only be obtained through the understanding of the Book of Allah.
During this Halaqa, interpretation of Quraan will not depend on one source. It would rather discuss how old and modern scholars interpreted the verses of Quraan. Verse number 56 and 57 of Sourat Al-Araf (THE HEIGHTS) will be discussed in the next week.
