The Quran is the book of God which every Muslim aspires to read and understand. Imagine going on a long journey with a guide book you can’t read. The information is there but you can’t access it!

“And we have sent down the Book to you as an explanation for everything, a guidance, a mercy and glad tidings for Muslims” [Quran 16:89]

“I leave behind me two things, the Quran and the Sunnah, if you follow them you will never go astray” (Bukhari)

Muslims are commanded to pray 5 times a day and to recite surah al fatiha in every unit of those prayers. Typically that means reciting al Fatiha around 29 times a day just in the prayers alone. That’s over 10,000 times a year! Yet for many of us, the meanings and hidden gems of this great chapter of the Quran remain unlocked and unaccessible. Isn’t that very unfortunate?

This course aims to unlock the meanings of not only surah al Fatiha (the greatest of all the chapters of the Quran), but also the last 10 chapters - the most memorised and recited chapters in our daily worship.

The Quran is a book which is not only meant to be recited with beautiful recitation but also a book to be pondered over with deep reflection. It is meant to guide the human throughout one’s life. How can one effectively do this without understanding the meaning of what they are reading? How would you feel if we could finally understand what you are reciting day in, day out? How would it be if we could communicate more effectively with our Creator?

Join us as we unlock the hidden jewels contained in the most oft recited chapters of the Quran.
