Qur'an With the Divine

The Qur’an: Our Lifelong Companion

The Qur’an Series: Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV | Part V | Part VI Part VII | Part VIII | Part IX

One of the reasons many of us have difficulty connecting with the Qur’an is because we simply see it only as a Holy Book.

But what if we realized the Qur’an is more than a book? What if we realized the Qur’an is a lifelong, passionate relationship that we simply have not yet experienced?

In this workshop, we discuss barriers to establishing a relationship with the Qur’an and ways through which we can successfully move forward, build that passionate relationship, and make a life-long commitment to the best partner in the world.

Please note: This workshop was geared towards college students at the MSA West conference in California. Therefore, the presentation style, lingo and cultural references are those made specifically for that demographic.
