Connecting with the Speech of Allah

What does it mean for the Qur’an to be the “speech of Allah? ” How can our understanding of the Speaker affect our relationship with the Qur’an? How should we think about Allah when we read His words? 

Join host Sh. Suleiman Hani for the first season of the Qur’an Convos podcast, where he’ll be exploring the topic of tadabbur—deep reflection on the Qur’an—with various scholars and experts. 

In this episode, Sh. Suleiman sits with Sh. Arsalan Haque and Sh. Jamaal Diwan to discuss the importance of understanding the Speaker of the Qur’an.

Sh. Arsalan is the Resident Scholar of the Islamic Association of Collin County and the Director of Taqwa Seminary. Sh. Jamaal is the Co-Founder and Religious Director of The Majlis in Southern California.
