2020-2021 Lecture Series: Themes of the Qurʾān


The Qurʾānic themes are about guiding human beings, their salvation and success. These themes are scattered throughout the Qurʾān in various surahs, the objective and purpose of these lectures is to introduce the themes in schematic order that will result in a holistic and comprehensive worldview of what the Qurʾān has to offer. The lectures will introduce several āyāt from the Qurʾān under the umbrella of different themes. The philological underpinnings that dictate the meanings of those āyāt will be discussed and how it relates to understanding the Qurʾānic worldview.
