MEOC posted a topic in Coming EventsSurah Al-Ma'arij - Back To The Electric Atmosphere Surahs come in pairs in the Qur'an. The pair of Surah Al-Haaqqah is Surah Al-Ma'arij. Surah Al-Ma'arij deals with the Day of Judgement and The Hereafter from another perspective." - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi There was such an electric atmosphere when Surah Al-Haaqqah was discussed last month in the Magnificent Journey Seminar Series in Cambridge. This month it is Surah Al-Ma'arij - the twin half of Surah Al-Haaqqah. Surah Al-Ma'arij also deals with The Day of Judgement and The Hereafter but from a different perspective. These seminars really give a taste of how it would have been like when the Qur'an was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and the people around him. The real effect of the Qur'an can only be felt when it is understood in their context and in their language. Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi is a master of both the language and the context, and he brings these across to us in an amazing, unique and an inspiring way, MashaAllah.

MEOC posted a topic in Coming EventsThe Qur'an - How To Approach & Understand It? Firstly, the Qur'an is unlike any other book. Therefore the approach to reading and understanding the Qur'an has to be different. Realising this is critical to benefiting from the Qur'an. The Qur'an itself alludes to this in many different places. Secondly, the way Qur'an teaches and instructs is different to what we are generally accustomed to in the modern world. The Qur'an employs what Shaykh Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi calls the "Immersion Method of Teaching" where the reader or listener is drawn in to be immersed in the context of the message. Understanding these two important differences of 1. approach/attitude and 2. methodology is fundamental to appreciating the Qur'an and benefit from it. Sadly many of us have no clear idea about this and therefore we do not have the thirst to drink from the fountains of the Qur'an. THE QUR'AN IS THE SOURCE OF GUIDANCE. To be not drawn to the Qur'an is one of the greatest misfortunes and calamities that can ever befall us. We read and study every other book apart from the Qur'an, which is the message from our Lord to each one of us. But how can we straight thinking people do that?
