One of the Qur'an's miracles is its ability to make the believer cry and fear as they reflect on Allah's ﷻ words, only to make them turn around, smile and hope as they hear the next set of verses.
Surah Qāf is just that. A whirlwind of emotions and scenes as Allah ﷻ speaks to us about those who deny resurrection even while observing the manifest cosmic realities around them; the scenes of death; accounting, punishment and reward; and how everything around us points to the only purpose of this world: to bow and glorify Allah ﷻ alone.
Join Shaykh Daood Butt as he explains to us the meanings of Surah Qāf! This class will be full of emotions, both happy and sad, as we ponder over Allah's ﷻ words and strengthen our faith.
