CHAPTER 28 - SURAH AL-QASAS -‘THE STORY’

with Ustadh Hafiz Abdullah Muhammad*

Date: Tuesday 11th December 2012
Time: 6pm - 8.30pm
Venue: Idea Store Canary Wharf, Churchill Place,
Canary Wharf, London E14 5RB

Surah al-Qasas is the 28th Chapter of the Holy Quran. The name
is derived from the use of the word ‘Qusseehi’ (follow him) in
the narrative where the mother of Moses tells her daughter to
‘follow’ the baby in the River Nile (v.11). This shows that
the primary purpose of stories in the Quran is to teach lessons
which can be followed. Right from the outset of the Surah, a
significant portion of the chapter is devoted to the story of
Prophet Musa (AS), including the mention of Qarun, and there
are many parallels of his life with that of Prophet Muhammad
(SAW). For example, Almighty Allah makes the same promise
of ‘return’ to both Moses’ mother (v.7) and to the Prophet
on his migration from Makkah (v.85).

In this session of the monthly Journey Through the
Qur’an series, we will examine the history, structure
and guidance provided in this Surah and its
contemporary relevance.
