Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, I’m not worthy of this, but this is Allah SWT’s blessing upon me, that He connected my heart to the Qur’an. I find the Tafsir classes very thorough, informative, easy to understand, and very interesting. I like how Ustadha always explains the context of revelation and narrates as many relevant ahadith and as many different interpretations and points of view given by different scholars so we can understand the verses from all angles. Taking these classes has helped me tremendously in having a clear view as to the purpose of our lives, and has brought about a calmness and contentment in my heart. With Allah SWT’s mercy, I have been more consistent with my tahajjud prayers and making dua`s, and working diligently towards achieving more khushu and khuzu in my ‘ibadah. My heart feels like it’s always connected to Allah SWT and in my mind I’m always trying to perform actions that are pleasing to Him and that are in compliance with the Sunnah and Shariah.” – Qur’an Program student from the U.S.

The Qur’an program is a complete course full of knowledge. I have actually become addicted to this course- if I miss one or two classes I just feel that something is wrong or my day was incomplete. Shukr Allhumdulilah just because of this course, I tend to recite the Qur’an almost on a daily basis. I feel seriously blessed that I am able to attend this course and that I read the Qur’an in the way it should be read with meanings, context, lessons, morals etc. It is a blessing and big naimah of Allah ta’ala that He has chosen me to attend these classes, that he has given me taufiq of attending these classes.” – Qur’an Program student from Australia

I think Sobia aapa is just doing her job in the most perfect way humanly possible. Never have I had a teacher even in university education who is always available to answer all questions and cover so much detail in her lectures. I feel that these details related to context and multiple meanings are very beneficial in retaining the understanding of the verses. Just a few months of studying has enabled me to dig deeper into the meanings of the verses while reciting the Qur’an. This is all because of Allah’s blessings and her efforts of explaining.” – Qur’an Program student from Pakistan
