The Magnificent Journey - Starting in September

An Amazing Journey Through The Last Two Parts (Juzu Tabaarak and Juzu 'Amma) of the Qur'an from Surah Al-Mulk to Surah An-Nass by one of the foremost Islamic Scholars and Thinkers of the Western World today

The last two parts of the Qur'an contain the short surahs which were revealed in Makkah including the first revelation to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This was when the Meccan society was seeped in doubt and darkness. Allah (SWT) chose to dispel the darkness through these succinct yet very powerful surahs. The society today (although materially advanced) has somewhat gone back to the days of Jahilliya or Ignorance and therefore the power and the relevance of these short Surahs in bringing the people back to light, certainty and guidance cannot be overestimated. Furthermore, these are the Surahs which are widely read in the Prayers and memorised by many because of their short length. Therefore the effect it would have to understand these Surahs in a deep and meaningful way is immeasurable.

This year long journey is undertaken with one of the foremost Islamic Scholars and Thinkers of the Western World today. It is a unique Journey unlike any other. No amount of reading books on this Surahs or listening to lectures will help as much as undertaking this Journey with a scholar of traditional training coupled with deep thinking who will bring vast amounts of resources together to make these Surahs applicable to the modern context.

For the first time ever MEOC is offering a Magnificent Journey Pass that would give entry for the whole year with additional features such as free entry for the children for a limited time. The Pass is priced in a such a way that attending just 5 out 10-12 sessions would cover the cost. These seminars are now also offered online live for the international audience.

Surah Al-Kahf (The Cave) - The Central Surah of The Qur'an

>> Did you know that Surah al-Kahf appears at the centre of the Qur’an?

>> Do you know why we are enjoined to read Surah al-Kahf every Friday?

>> Why is this surah of great importance in protecting us from the Dajjal?

Unlock the keys to understanding the trials and temptations of this life and find out how to save yourself against these tribulations through this Surah. Surah Al-Kahf is the 18th chapter of the Glorious Qur’an and probably the most frequently recited surah on a weekly basis.

The Prophet (SAW) said: “Whoever reads Surah al-Kahf on Friday will have a Light that will shine from one Friday to the next” [Hakim & Bayhaqi]. He also said: “Whoever preserves the first (or the last) ten verses of Surah al-Kahf will be protected from the Dajjal” [Sahih Muslim].

During this course we will examine each of the four key stories in detail and find out what lessons we can learn from these stories. We will also find out how by reading this surah on a weekly basis we can ‘enlighten’ our lives. We will also examine the connection between the themes discussed in this surah and Dajjal.

The surah contains important lessons that are directly relevant to Muslims living in the West. Studying, reflecting and acting on this surah will provide us with protection of our faith in the age of materialism and overcome the various tests and trials of faith, wealth, knowledge and power as illustrated by the stories.   <<<<<< Click Here To Register
