Risala Foundation will present A Stairway to the Quran with Shaykh Abu Nahla Alwazani, a special class that focuses exclusively on the Holy Quran for promoting better understanding of this Holy book. This program is a great way to build a direct connection to Islam's standing miracle, the Holy Qur'an, and will explain how reading Allah's book goes beyond just knowing Arabic. Shaykh Abu Nahla poses that there is a stairway to the Qur'an which must be climbed for the reader to unlock the doors to its infinite wonders and this seminar will help to initiate that journey.
Some topics to be covered are:
The Uniqueness of the Book
Our genuine need for the Divine - a prerequisite
How to interact with Quran
Why do we say "Istia'ath'ah: Audhubillahi minashaytaanir Rajim?"
Understanding the power of Bismillah
Examples from the Honorable Generation
Preparing for the Quranic journey
