The Best of Stories – Online Course ,


The ‘Best of Stories’ Online course is a 4-week self-paced program covering four stories from the Quran. Sisters will prepare from Tafseer and take part in a group discussion of the selected stories deriving lessons and benefits. Audio lessons (like the original ‘Best of Stories’ series) will be provided at the end of each week to review and consolidate our learning.

If you’d love to be part of a Quran-related class or circle but can’t manage to physically attend one, this online course is for you! This unique course is self-paced so you’ll have the entire week to catch up on the discussion inshallah.

‘The Best of Stories’ online course is the opportunity for sisters to discuss and share reflections on selected stories of the Quran. Instead of having to make the time to attend a live class, we will be discussing the stories first as a group, sharing lessons and gems. Then at the end of each week, a pre-recorded audio lesson, much like the ‘Best of Stories’ episodes, will be released. Inshallah, we’ll be covering one story from the Quran per week across four weeks.




The course discussions will take place on a messaging and file-sharing platform for mobile and Mac/PC for easy access and faster sharing.


Weekly Audio lessons will be provided for you to listen to in your own time, and refer back to whenever you’d like.


There are no assignments, but attendees will be preparing by reading/watching/listening to the Tafseer (scholarly commentary) of the selected stories from the Quran before taking part in the discussion.
