The Last Ten - A 6-week Tafseer course for Sisters
Date(s) - 06/04/2020 - 07/09/2020
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
A Reflective reading of the last 10 surahs of the Qur’ān alongside Surah al-Fātihah with practical lessons and guidance for daily life.
Developed over 7 years, this is a Tafsīr course that draws from Classical Exegesis such as Tafseer ibn Katheer, At-Tabari, Al-Qurtubi and others. It aims to generate a practical approach to selected chapters of the Qur’ān promoting a dynamic engagement with these Divine words.
For each surah we will:
- Cover a word to word translation
- Have a chance to recite-along with correct pronunciation
- Study the implications of the verses
- Explore the context in which the chapter was revealed
- Discuss why the verses are important to us today
- Reflect on how we can practically apply lessons from the surah in our own lives
Each class will include interactive discussions and end with a Q&A with Ustadha.
WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR:
The course is designed for an English speaking audience – no prior knowledge of Arabic is required. Sisters only.

Testimonials from previous participants:
“I found the tafseer classes very beneficial as these are the surahs I have memorised and I recite them in my salah. It has helped me to concentrate in my salah and now I find that the quality of my salah has improved a lot.” Sister Amina
“I have been looking for this type of lecture. I think us Muslims in France are lacking opportunities to access such knowledge. The Quran is so deep and truly amazing but has to be taught by someone of understanding.
I really like the setting. It’s scholarly like and interesting but doesn’t distract from the lecture. The way the teacher explains the root meaning of some words in detail is very interesting. Attending these lessons has motivated me to carry on.” Sister Memouna
“I find the tafseer course captivating and inspiring. The way the teacher explains the verses putting into context different scenarios in one verse makes you truly appreciate the beauty of the quran and how it really will apply to every single person on an individual level. She always captures the main message of each verse beautifully. Her lessons will always leave you awe inspired wanting more masha’Allah.” Sister Ammaarah
“I like how for every surah there are points to ponder upon and the things we should action. This course has truly made me realise how I can apply the Quran to my life on a daily basis” Sister Asmaa
