Contemplate The Quran WITHOUT needing ANY Arabic

Allah commanded us to contemplate and reflect over the Quran even though He knew that the majority of the Muslim world would not be Arabic speaking. So there MUST be a way to contemplate the Quran without knowing Arabic. And in these last ten nights of Ramadan, let us show you how.


Everyone of us can have our own personal experience with the Quran

Contemplating Quran (tadabbur) is commanded of us by Allah. It is a skill that can be taught and learned, even for those without the Arabic language.  It’s about  mindset. It’s about knowing what question to ask yourself as you are reading through text. It’s about knowing what to look for to connect dots and draw parallels.  This course presents 12 tested principles on how anyone can contemplate the Quran. 

This is not a course about you hearing the gems and reflections of others, it’s about you creating the gems yourself.

  • How do I change my reading from the Quran from being passive to active?
  • What is the difference between Tafsir which only those qualified can do and Tadabbur (contemplation) which all of us are commanded to do? 
  • What are the questions that I should be asking myself with every verse that I come across? 
  • How do I go beyond benefitting from other people’s reflections on the Quran and develop my own reflections?
  • What are the tools that I need to be able to immediately interact with the Quran in a new way?
  • How can I get depth of meaning from the Quran without using ANY Arabic?

A Unique Experience With Sh Waleed Basyouni & Sh Ammar Alshukry

Shaykh Waleed Basyouni and Shaykh Ammar AlShukry tag-team in a unique course designed to give you the tools to embark on your own journey, of a life-time of discovery, with the Quran.

Practical, hands on, and immediately effective. You’re going to want to grab a pen, a notebook and your favorite Mushaf.

Your Ramadan reading is about to go up a notch in sha Allah.


Really beneficial course. There is never enough you can know about connecting with the Qur’an. I felt as though this course really prompts you to reconsider your approach to the Qur’an. The ‘art of contemplation’ is adequately explained in this course.

This course made me comprehend the Qur’an in a new insightful and meaningful way. The course is a must, as it will give you tools that you will be able to use every time your are listening or reciting the Qur’an. Alhamdulillah!

Alhamdulillah great course for anyone hoping to establish a strong relationship with the book of Allah. Inspiring, moving and very practical. May Allah reward everyone abundantly for their efforts to bring it to us, Ameen!

It was a very good course and I am already attempting to contemplate the Quran that I am currently reading. The tools have been a big help, and what is needed is simply practise and adherence. I have attended memorisation courses in Ramadan, which is fine as such, but I was left with the feeling of memorizing something that I didn’t really understand in depth, other than the apparent meaning… This will inshallah change now..

Amazing course and a science that is not often taught. You just can’t find this sort of stuff on YouTube. The course is very well structured and provides the right tools and guidelines to start exercising your contemplation muscles.
