Day 1 of 3: Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl presents his Quranic commentary on Surah 6: Al An'am (Day 1 of 3 for this longer surah) as part of the ongoing Project Illumine: Light of the Quran series at The Usuli Institute (www.usuli.org). There will be a Q&A at the end of Day 3.
Project Illumine is a year-long intensive immersion into the unique moral messages in each of the 114 surahs (chapters) of the Quran, the fruit of this scholar's lifetime relationship with the Quran. This is the sixtieth chapter in the series. This is not the traditional line-by-line exegesis, but a chapter-by-chapter thematic approach that seeks to rediscover the original meaning received by the early Muslims that sparked their passion such that they transformed from desert dwellers to civilization builders. It is an investigation of the timeless moral and ethical lessons of the Quran then applied to our modern day. In the introduction, Dr. Josef Linnhoff reflects on his journey with the Usuli Institute and shares reflections as a convert to Islam. Recorded at The Usuli Institute on 28 August 2021.
