Introduction to the Sciences of the Qur'an


This course looks at various aspects of the science of Divine revelation, how the Qur`an was revealed, preserved, compiled and transmitted through generation after generation. It also briefly covers the exegesis (tafsir) and translation of the Quran. The Importance of such a subject is that if one is to properly grasp the divine Message one needs to fully understand the ciscrumstances that surround the message. Although some part of this special knowledge can be derived from the Qur'an itself, there remain other areas of knowledge that can only be discovered by wider study and research. The branch of knowledge, called 'ulum al-Qur'an will give one a complete understanding of the message of the Qur'an, by understanding its setting and circumstances.
