Based on our meetup discussions I have sensed that some members are interested in knowing more about sciences of Quran. Therefore, I thought besides studying the surahs, if we add some discussion on sciences of Quran as well than it would be very beneficial in getting in depth insight on Quran:
- Its revelation.
- Its collection.
- Its order and arrangement.
- Its writing down.
- Information about the reasons and occasions of revelation.
- Information about what was revealed in Makka and what in Madina.
- Information about the abrogating and abrogated verses.
- Information about the 'clear' and the 'unclear' verses
I have selected a book called "Ulum al-Quran-An Introduction to the sciences of Quran" by Ahmad Von Denffer.
The ebook is available online Free of charge. Please use the link below to access the book:Sciences of Quran(Ulum al-Quran)
This book can also be ordered via Amazon for less than $10.
I am planning on adding 15-20 minute discussion on Sciences of Quran after the Surah presentation starting next month.
Please let me know if you have other resources as well that we can use on Sciences of Quran. I hope you will find this discussion helpful. I look forward to hearing from you.
