Monthly Qur'anic Seminar With BAQS On 'Being Different'

British Academy of Qur'anic Studies (BAQS) presents its Monthly Quranic Seminars -  a one-day intensive course on: Being Different!

Register with the British Academy of Qur'anic Studies to study the Tafsir (explanation) of Surahs al-Jumuah, al-Munafiqun and at-Taghabun. (Qur'an chapters 62-64).

Throughout these Qur'an chapters Allah teaches humanity and warns us against the pitfalls of previous nations and how we can be different from them. What do you really know about Allah’s warning and how do you differ from the previous nations?

This is a unique line-up of three significant chapters, all very different but with many common themes. During the course of this event and the tafsir of these unique chapters you will:
  • Find out the similitude Allah likened a donkey laden with books
  • Understand the comparison between the Sabbath of the Jews and the Friday prayer of the Muslims
  • Explore what actions were so grievous that the Prophet (s) supplication for forgiveness is not answered and why?
  • Learn what can lead someone to becoming a loser?
  • Protect yourself by understanding how much harm can someone afflict upon you?
  • Learn which two factors can distance you from the remembrance of Allah?
Join BAQS in the study of these remarkable chapters, by registering online at {}.
