"O Ye Who Believe"

Looking at Qur’anic verses from Shaykh Ahmad Fathullah al-Jami’s ‘Call to Believers’.

Cambridge Muslim College's Online Learning Platform provides exclusive access to Lecture Series and Courses that you can take at your own pace and in your own space.

There are approximately 89 times in the Qur’an where God addresses the believers in verses that begin with the words such as 'ya ayyuhal mu'minin'.

In ‘O Ye Who Believe’, Dr Hisham Hellyer takes us through some of those addresses, so that we as believers might better understand those calls that God makes to us. He refers closely to Shaykh Fathullah Jami’s ‘The Call to the Believers in the Clear Qur’an.’

These sessions were broadcast on YouTube weekly in Ramadan 2020.
