The Quran is a book of amazing beauty, extraordinary eloquence and tremendous spiritual power. In the midst of all its majesty, some chapters are like glistening lights that have the power to illuminate our lives and transform our experience. In this short course, we study and dazzle ourselves by these beautiful gems, these scattered pearls in the light of the life and words of the Prophet sallallahualayhiwasallam, inspiring stories from the life of the pious predecessors and the realities of modern life.
