Course: The Study of the Sahih: The Book of the Virtues of the Qur’an

Instructor: Shaykh Omar Subedar

Course Overview

Every Muslim believes that the Qur’an is the unaltered and absolute word of Allah. However, contrary to public assumptions, the Qur’an was not revealed as a complete book that was split into 30 sections with its 114 surahs arranged in a manner that we witness today. Rather, it was revealed in instalments to the Beloved Messenger (peace be upon him) over a span of two decades and went through a complete compilation process, which Imam al-Bukhari has shared in his book within Sahih al-Bukhari titled the Book of the Virtues of the Qur’an.

In this course, students will learn of this process in a detailed manner by going over all the important reports that provide clarity on this matter. They will thus have many of the objections and doubts posed by the Orientalists clarified thus bringing strength to their faith. They will also be prepared to study Imam al-Bukhari’s Book of Tafsir, which will be offered subsequent to this course.
