Course Details

As we read the Qur’an, we come across words that are written differently than the normal Arabic spelling convention. The science of Rasm al-Khatt is a study of and a preservation of the unique orthography of the Qur’an. In this course, we will briefly explore the history of the writing of the Qur’an, what are some of the ways in which the orthography of the Qur’an differs from Arabic spelling convention, and what are some of the possible reasons for this. While this webinar will not be a complete study of Mufti Mohamed-Umer Esmail’s (RA) Tashil al-Rusum, it will be one of the main resources that students will be referring to. Course participants will be provided with a pdf of this work, in sha Allah.
