Surah Ash-Shams - Qur'an Classes at the Johannesburg Sufi Centre
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
This discourse was given at the Johannesburg Sufi Centre in 2013.
Shaykh Fadhlalla mentions the technique of entering every Surah by examining the last ayat of the preceding Surah.
He then reminds us that the Qur'anic message, the result of thousands of years of evolution of consciousness, like every gift comes with a responsibility for humankind.
He then explores how the Surah explores the Cosmic, individual and social implications of that responsibility, emphasizing the divine nature of the soul and that even the body, like everything in creation is sacred.
