Ramadan is fast approaching once again! So for the 12th year running IIDR brings to you its most popular course: Journey Through the Quran 2019 for the first time in Istanbul, Turkey.

Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (s), so the greatness of this blessed month is inextricably linked to the Holy Book itself. But ask yourself – do you resolve each year that you will attempt to study the Quran? So many of us do, but fail to fulfill our best intentions. Are you aware of the key messages and lessons of each surah? And can you imagine the joy you will feel when you finally begin to understand what is being recited in the tarawih prayers this Ramadan? Let this year’s Journey Through the Quran course transform your Ramadan by teaching you how to engage with the Quran in a way you’ve never done before.

In the short space of just four days you will learn:

99 personal development lessons based on Quranic teachings;
Key messages, themes and stories to assist your long-term learning;
A cohesive summary and overview of all 114 chapters;
The Quran in application: discover how to apply your knowledge practically in your everyday life;
1000 Arabic words from the Quran; and so much more.
Traverse the pathways of the Quran that run all the way from Al-Fatiha to Al-Nas. Under the tutelage of IIDR’s very own founder, Shaykh Sharif H al-Banna, this course will give you the tools to re-establish your connection with the Divine Book. Make this your year to achieve something remarkable in the month of Ramadan.

The course will also host presentations by two distinguished guest lecturers – Prof Dr Bilal Kuspinar and Asst Prof Selim Argun.

Additionally, you will also get your very own FREE copy of the Journey Through the Quran book (worth 150TL).

Course fees for participants in Turkey is 250TL.
