Talk 2: Al-Qur'an — The Revealed Book
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri
This talk describes the meaning, purpose and teachings of the Qur'an. It highlights 80 clear scientific disciplines, indicating what is halal and haram through shari`ah and haqiqah. It explains what is zahir (obvious) and batin (hidden); what is mutashabi (clear) and mukham (requires clarification). The Qur'an was designed to groom the fitra: to seal the cracks within us and realize the nur of Allah. It must be approached observing particular adab (courtesy), i.e., ablutions, reciting beautifully and on a daily basis where possible.
