An Epic Journey

Assalamualaikum w.b.t

Alhamdulillah, I have attended this course over last weekend. It was my first time experience ever to attend a tafseer course. With my almost to none knowledge in Arabic, let alone tafseer studies, I can say that I learnt a lot in the 2 days. We covered the whole 111 ayat of Surah Yusuf. The lecture provides in depth analysis of the surah, and the lessons extracted from it. Some we can see right from the meaning of the ayat, but some takes deeper understanding and appreciation of the story (which we know it’s not just a story).

The course content also provides few distinct comparisons between few ulama’ and how and why it differs. It goes above and beyond of what I have expected. The constant reminder throughout the session was were there to worship Allah first and secondly learn, and I hope I met the objective. Subhanallah for the path that was opened for me to be in the course, albeit a short one.  Just from one surah, it shows how beautiful Islam is, for those who seek to know and understand. It’s a complete guide, comprising learnings to all walks of life. I hope I can share all, but it’s too much at one go.

InsyaAllah, I have the course binder with me, what I plan to do is capture parts of it and share with the rest of you from time to time. I hope Allah gives me the strength to do that. Hope we can all learn and apply the learning together, insyaAllah.

It was indeed, an epic journey.
