Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl presents his Quranic commentary on Surah 82: Al Infitar as part of the ongoing Project Illumine: Light of the Quran series at The Usuli Institute (www.usuli.org). There is a Q&A at the end.
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 sixty-third 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 our Executive Director Grace Song shares three communications that she recently received, examples of communications which require humor, patience and heart to respond. Recorded at The Usuli Institute on 15 September 2021.
