The Heart of the Qur'an
A verse by verse tafsir of the 36th chapter of the Qur’an, Surah Ya Sin.
This profound Lecture Series on Surah Yasin, Heart of the Qur’an, approaches the Quranic verses and Quranic Suras, verse by verse, and even word by word to give us a real sense of the power, the force, and the emotions that arise from each of these items of vocabulary and how they come together to express a particular meaning.
This will be useful, insightful and beneficial, both for students of Arabic who get a chance to see Arabic in action: Quranic style, vocabulary and expression; and also for people who have no previous study in Arabic at all, to give them a taste of a very classical approach to studying the suras of the Holy Qur’an.
These sessions were broadcast on YouTube weekly in Ramadan 2020.
