“This course has made me fall in love with the Qur'an more, which in turn has helped with my spiritual growth. It has given me confidence in talking more about the Qur'an with other people as well.”

“The course was like going back in time and gave me an idea of what it was like at the time of the Prophet SAW and his companions and understanding the hardships the people who accepted Islam went through at that time. Love the course and would recommend to others!”
