 Explore The Qur’an, Defend The Qur’an

     Today, many Muslims, especially in multi-faith societies across the globe, find it difficult to explore the Qur’an and defend their beliefs about Islam. This inability is due to the fact that Muslims are not well-acquainted with the basics of the Qur’anic sciences, its essence and the message it delivers to the mankind.

     Even a person without basic knowledge of the Qur’an can explore and defend it in a sublime and confident manner with the guidance of worldly renowned scholars of the Qur’an. This course is crafted with all due attention to all contemporary challenges confronted to the Qur’an by group of orientalists. Muslim liberals, scientific communities or the Muslim writers, aim at creating an enriching experience of Qur’anic studies via clear interpretations of the pearls of Qur’an.
