Islamic studies can be seen under at least two perspectives: From a secular perspective, Islamic studies is a field of academic research whose subject is Islam as religion and civilization. From a traditional Islamic perspective, Islamic studies is an  umbrella term  for the "religious sciences" (' Ulum al-din , distinct from non-religious sciences such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, astronomy and philosophy), pursued by the ulama i.e. the Islamic scholarly class. Islamic Studies is essential to connect one to the basics of Islam. We may born Muslims, but little do we know about the religion we follow. We never really fully understand the religion our forefathers followed, and now we do, we are not even familiar with the basics.

6 Best Online Quran Memorization Courses

Memorizing the Quran is an act of worship through which one seeks the Face of Allah (SWT) and reward in the Hereafter. Without this intention, he will never have any reward, rather he will be punished for doing this act of worship for someone or something other than Allah Almighty. The Hafiz (the person who has memorized the Qur’an) should not have any intention of gaining worldly benefits by memorizing the Qur’an, because his memorization thereof is not a product to be traded with in this world, rather it is an act of worship which is done for the sake of his Lord. Moreover, Allah (SWT) has given special privileges to the one who memorized the Quran in a number of ways in this world and in the Hereafter, such as: He takes precedence over others in leading the prayer. He is placed in front of others in a common grave, closer to the qibla, if it is essential to bury him with others. He takes precedence in leadership if he able to bear that. The status of the one who memorizes Qur

6 Best Online Quran Reading Courses

  Every letter of the Qur'an in Arabic is said to contain purposeful meaning. Even Arabic speakers may not be able to fully understand the importance of each letter but they can at least understand the meaning of the words and sentences used in the Surahs. Each word even has multiple levels of meaning. In translation, this is lost and the meanings behind everything are muted at best. We can translate it and extrapolate the basic essence of what's being said but if you don't understand the Arabic and varying levels of complexity in which each word is used in the sentence you are really only getting like a cliff notes version of the message. Allah rewards us when we struggle with reading and reciting the Qur'an in Arabic. For each letter you struggle with there is a reward for you. So, the incentive to read and recite Quran in Arabic is higher and far more rewarding than simply settling for the translation. Of course, it is important for the non-Arabic speaker to actu

  It is important to recognize that the book of God is the most valuable book we possess. It is up to us to give it the respect it deserves and thus follow the advice of the Ahl al-Bayt (pbut) when we make the intention to recite it. When reciting the Quran, it is vital for us to recognize that it contains the best and most beautiful words, and thus recite it in the most beautiful manner. We should use our best voice when we are reciting the word of Allah (SWT). We should not scream nor use a very faint voice. Allah (SWT) states in the holy Quran: “And recite the Quran in a distinct tone.” (The Holy Quran [73:4]) In Ramadan, since the reward is multiplied by 70 or more, you'll find many Muslims utilizing this benefit, immersing themselves into completing the recitation of Quran. It's beautiful to acknowledge that not only does the Qur'an positively affect our daily lives, which is a blessing in itself, but it allows us to benefit in the next life too. Reciting the Qura

Tafsir (Arabic: تفسير‎, romanized: tafsīr [taf.ˈsiːr]) refers to exegesis, usually of the Quran. An author of a tafsir is a mufassir (Arabic: مُفسّر‎; plural: Arabic: مفسّرون‎, romanized: mufassirūn). A Quranic tafsir attempts to provide elucidation, explanation, interpretation, context or commentary for clear understanding and conviction of Allah's Almighty will. Principally, a tafsir deals with the issues of linguistics, jurisprudence, and theology. In terms of perspective and approach, tafsir can be broadly divided into two categories, namely tafsir bi-al-ma'thur (lit. received tafsir), which is transmitted from the early days of Islam through the Islamic prophet Muhammad and his companions, and tafsir bi-al-ra'y (lit. tafsir by opinion), which is arrived through personal reflection or independent rational thinking. There are different characteristics and traditions for each of the tafsirs representing respective schools and doctrines, such as Sunni Islam, Shia Islam,

6 Best Online Tajweed Courses

“Tajweed”  or  “Tajwid”  is a very common term in the context of  Quran recitation . It comes from the Arabic word (تَجْوِيدْ‎) which linguistically means enhancement or making something outstanding. In terms of Quran reading & recitation, Tajweed is actually a set of linguistic and pronunciation rules used in reciting the Quran to recite it in the right way as same as the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was reciting. For many of us who are non-Arab Muslims, Tajweed is more often than not a learning curve for us. When you listen to Qaris reciting the Quran, you wish to attain their level of proficiency. Not just in melody, but in the way that they pronounce each letter perfectly. The history of Quranic recitation is tied to the history of qira'at, as each reciter had their own set of tajwid rules, with much overlap between them. Abu Ubaid al-Qasim bin Salam (774 - 838 CE) was the first to develop a recorded science for tajwid, giving the rules of tajwid names and putting it into w

There are ten different recognized schools of qiraʼat, each one deriving its name from a noted Quran reciter or "reader" (qāriʾ pl. qāriʾūn or qurr'aʿ), such as Nafi‘ al-Madani, Ibn Kathir al-Makki, Abu Amr of Basra, Ibn Amir ad-Dimashqi, Aasim ibn Abi al-Najud, Hamzah az-Zaiyyat, Al-Kisa'i.
