Keys to the Quran Course


Understanding the Quran With Method

Sincerity & Method to Understand the Quran Well

Today, we hear a lot of discourses about the Quran: most of them lack the method to understand it objectively and correctly.

The great concepts of Islam have been replaced by counter-meanings which are now part of the general culture of every French person. Thus, sharīah means 'the law that orders to cut off hands;' islām means 'submission that excludes any exercise of one's critical reason;' jihād means, at best, 'forcing non-Muslims to convert to Islam,' at worst, 'terrorism...'

Learning to understand the Quran through the Quran

Learning to Understand the Quran by the Quran

We propose a course that will introduce the method of "explaining the Quran through the Quran" (تفسير القرآن بالقرآن). This method of understanding integrates the authentic Sunnah as a "Tafsīr 'amalī of the Quran" (an explanation of the Qur'an through practice, through the example of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him). It also integrates the explanation of the revealed Book (the Quran) by the explanation of the created Book (the world, life, reality, society...), and vice versa.

As God is One, to understand the Quran, the example of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the world is to understand one and the same reality and wisdom.

A Curriculum to Understand the Quran Simply & Methodically

From one class to the next, we will explore the suras al-Fātihah and al-Baqarah to answer essential questions such as: how not to fail in one's understanding of the Quran? What is the universal wisdom that the Quran reveals to us about life, the world, man, spirituality, success, conformity, critical thinking…? What is the path that God invites us to follow in order to reach the two happinesses, in this life and in the last life? What are the great concepts of the Quran that can enlighten and guide our lives?
