Surah Al-`Asr - Qur'an Classes at the Johannesburg Sufi Centre

Surah Al-`Asr - Qur'an Classes at the Johannesburg Sufi Centre
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

This talk was given at the Johannesburg Centre in 2013.

Shaykh Fadhlalla approaches this short, but important, Surah which explores the core human conundrum of inevitable loss.

We are born and we will die, losing everything we loved.

Applying the approach of 'Qur'an bil Qur'an', understanding key concepts by examining other ayats in which they appear, he explores eight key terms which between them are found in over 2,000 ayats.

For example: `Asr, Insan, Khus, Aamanu (Iman), `amilu, Saalihat, Haqq, Sabr.
