Objective: This class focuses on the explanation of the top 400 words of the Quran. These 400 words (a mix of Lemmas and Verbs) constitute approximately 71% of the entire Quran*. By the end of this class, students will be able to understand up to 71% of the words as they recite or listen to the Quran. Coupled with the knowledge of Islam’s basics, history, Quranic stories and other information generally known to non-Arabic speaking Muslims, this course will enable the students to build a personal connection with the Quran by understanding most of it as it’s recited.
