Project Illumine: Surah 112: Al Ikhlas and Surah Al Fatiha

Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl presents his final two Quranic commentaries on Surah 112: Al Ikhlas and Surah Al Fatiha, concluding the Project Illumine: Light of the Quran series at The Usuli Institute (www.usuli.org). Recorded at The Usuli Institute on 30 April 2023.


Project Illumine is a three-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. Surah Al Ikhlas is the 113th surah in the series; Surah Al Fatiha is the 114th. 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, Executive Director Grace Song shares her thoughts on the journey and reads Thank You letters to Shaykh from around the world, testifying to the impact of these Project Illumine halaqas.
