The course is  focused on studying the verses from the legislature perspective. We will be going back to main books of tafseer (i.e. Quranic exegesis). On some issues, we will give the preponderant (rajeh) ruling depending on the evidences. Inshaa Allah.

 The subjects covered will depend to some extent on the surahs and ayat in the order that they appear in the Quran, starting from Surat Al-Baqara.

I have chosen the topics based on their relevance to the sisters lives in the U.S.

If sisters have other topics, that relate to the course. We may include them in the course inshaa Allah.


Tafseer chronology

For every ayah, we will start by reading the required ayat. We will then give an analytical exegesis on certain words in those ayat.  Followed by a general exegesis for those ayat.  We then will mention the reason for their revelation, and the different recitations for those ayat.

Even though the class will be in English, yet we hope to succeed in giving some focuses on the Arabic synaptic in those ayat, and the influence on the understanding of those ayat. 

Scholars’ comments on the ayat from different hidden angles will also be mentioned.

The main approach in this exegesis course is to scrutinize the rulings on the ayat, which will be main topic covered during class. Questions on certain rulings will be put forward, and then we will mention the scholars’ answers and their evidences in answering those questions.

Finally, we will get to what the ayat are guiding us to and the wisdoms behind the rulings the ayat cover. We then will move on to the other ayat.



  • –         Students are required to attend the lectures.
  • –         Writing a report is required. The report must cover one of the issues the course covers.
  • –         Presenting the report in class is very important.
  • –         Sisters don’t leave your reports till the last day.


Goals and Objectives:

  • –         Sisters attending are expected to learn the tafseer exegesis for the ayat that relate to legislature.
  • –         Sisters are expected to learn how scholars of tafseer covered studying the ayat that had legislature relevance.
  • –         We do hope that the sisters will get more knowledge on many issues that concern them.



There will be three exams for this course and other assignment papers:

  • –               First test 20 marks
  • –               Second test 20 marks
  • –               Third test 30 marks
  • –               Report and Presentation 20 marks
  • –               Attendance and volunteering 10 marks
