Views: 110

Speaker: Sheikh Abu Bakr Zoud

Series: Tafseer Juzz Amma of Qur’an

The focus of this series is more of a linguistic, and literary approach:


1- Deeper meanings of the Ayaat from a grammatical aspect, meanings that are lost in the English translations.

2- To demonstrate the cohesive flowing nature of the Quran, and how it’s all one unified argument.

3- The precision of word choice, why a specific word is used, as opposed to other words that have the same meaning.
