Hazrat Umer Bin Khattab RA, the second Caliph of Ummah advised women to learn three surahs –Surah Al Nisaa, Surah Al Ahzab and Surah Al Noor. It is thus our responsibility to learn and to teach the lessons from these important Surahs.
Surah Al Nisaa (Surah of the Women) specifically addresses the rights of women, orphans, and senior citizens in Islam. While only Allah SWT knows best, one popular interpretation of why the title of the surah only mentions women is that men who respect and fulfill their obligations towards women fulfill their duties towards other members of society as well.
In our special eight-week summer program, Ustazah Umm Rameez, founder of alMishkaat, will host specially designed lectures on Surah Al Nisaa. The course material will focus on teaching students the rights and obligations of women in the light of the Quran, the interpretation of key words in this surah (Lamsat ul Bayaniyah), and how we can practically apply the lessons from this surah in our daily lives.
The classes will take place every Wednesday and last for 75 minutes. Mothers attend free. $50 per registration.
