Online Quran Tafseer Course

Online Quran Tafseer Course

Many Muslims who do not speak Arabic have difficulty understanding the meaning of verses. This language barrier restricts them from fully understanding what the verses of the Quran really mean. The verses of the Quran in each surah have a separate meaning in entirely different aspects. Without knowing the background, readers will be unable to understand what the Creator wants to tell us. 

You may be one of those who find it hard to understand the Quran and have trouble finding a tutor who can help you, especially if you live in a non-muslim country. If this is the case, Riwaq al Azhar has designed this course especially for you.

This course is specifically designed for non-native Arab Muslims and is taught by certified Azhar instructors with good English skills who are native speakers of the Arabic language. By the wisdom of our teachers, you can understand the complex words in a very simple way as well as gain a great deal of benefit derived from the verses and surahs of the Quran. Teachers use authentic tafsir books to explain their interpretations in a way that students can understand. In addition to teaching you about these benefits, we teach you how to apply them in your everyday life.

Below are all the details you should know about Quran Tafseer. 

What Does Tafseer Mean?

‘Tafseer’ means lifting the curtain and clarifying a matter. It is derived from the Arabic word ‘fasara’’, which means to make clear, show the objective. In other words, the Tafseer constitutes an accumulation of knowledge aiming to explain what the Qur’an actually says, the injunctions upon which it is based, and the history of its revelation. 

The Quran is the speech of Allah, and its meanings are infinite and the profundity is beyond human comprehension. The more you spend on analyzing it from all sides, be it linguistic, logical, or theoretical, the more you will be able to learn from it. 

Why is Learning Tafseer Essential?

While reciting the Quran without understanding its meaning does earn the reciters the blessings of Allah, interpretation of the scripture is necessary in order to understand its true meaning. If someone doesn’t speak Arabic as their mother tongue, they must familiarize themselves with the Quran’s translation and Tafseer in order to truly benefit from all the teachings. Quran Tafseer is crucial for those who wish to have a better understanding of Arabic verses of the Quran.  

The Holy Quran is the complete source of guidance in almost every matter of life. In addition to describing past nations, it also offers solutions for personal, social, economic and political problems. Additionally and above all else, it contains information about all modern sciences such as astronomy, biology, botany, physiology, etc. 

The Holy Quran instructs human beings about the true purpose of life and how to live a happy, successful, and healthy life in this world and in the next. The timeless wisdom of this divine book can only be fully appreciated when one fully comprehends its true meaning. 

If this is something you want, our Quran Tafseer classes online are specifically designed for students who wish to understand the true meaning of the Quran.

Quranic interpretation does not come naturally since each Ayat needs to be read in the context of its revelation. At Riwaq Al-Azhar, our Quran tutors are carefully chosen and screened to ensure that they are qualified to teach the Quran Tafseer online courses.

Advantages of Learn Quran Tafseer Online

Apart from the benefits we just mentioned above, here are some other advantages of online Quran tarjuma Tafseer course:

Helps Perform Obligatory Worshipping Practices with Concentration

Every Muslim is required to perform Salah five times a day. 

However, while most Muslims recite all the verses during Salah, only a few actually comprehend the meanings. Those who do not speak Arabic natively can learn Tafseer so that they can understand the meaning of verses in mandatory worship practices. 

Being aware of the true meaning and significance of verses will allow you to concentrate better. It will help you develop an even stronger connection to Allah.  

Develops Great Character

The Quran describes closeness to Allah as a means to attain Jannah and as a remedy for the myriad of issues and afflictions of this world. The Quran is a complete guide for individuals who want to live their lives according to the commandments of Allah. 

Muslims can use Tafseer to understand Allah’s commands about character and use that knowledge to orient their behavior accordingly.

Helps Understand the History of Islam

Many stories are narrated in the Quran by Allah Almighty, including stories about the Prophets and their ummah, miracles performed by the Prophets, and the miracle of our Last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). 

The stories have a deeper meaning behind them, and by knowing those deeper meanings, Muslims can better interpret the lessons taught by them.

Makes Muslims Able to Invite People to Islam

The ability to build a community depends on having a clear interpretation and understanding of it.  

Since you will gain a deeper understanding of Islam by learning Tafseer, you will be able to inspire other people to be Muslims.
