These 15 videos were created for Legal Verses (part 1) on Islamic Literacy. We are now offering access to them as an audited self-paced course with no live sessions. To find out more about the course, click here.

Course Description: It is commonly said that about 500 of the Qur’an’s verses relate to practical matters. These are referred to as āyāt al-aḥkām or “legal verses.” The study of these verses is an important sub-genre of Qur’anic exegesis, and understanding them is key to knowing our duty before God. In this course, we shall make a systematic study of these verses, taking the help of generations of jurists and exegetes, to better understand what our Lord wants of us. In part 2 of this course we cover 21 verses on the following topics related to prayer, zakah, khums, anfal, fay’, and hajj:

27 – Raising the Hands During Takbīr
28 – Friday Prayer (ṣalāt al-jumuʿah)
