Feel the Faith

A 16-week online course exploring emotions in the Quran

An online course exploring emotions in the Quran through reflection and a thematic study of Tafsir coupled with creative journaling and group discussion.

Live discussions will meet weekly online on Thursday nights from 8:30pm to 10pm (GMT) London time. You’ll get a weekly PDF outlining the discussion theme and related ayat for study and reflection, and we will share our Quran journaling, thoughts and insights during the live discussion on Thursday nights. This is a lightweight course to help us better develop the habit of Quranic reflection and approach it from a personally relevant angle.

Begin with Barakah

Master your mornings, make the most of every day

Begin with Barakah is my system to help you master your mornings and take control of your days, and ultimately your life inshallah. It’s about making time for the things you really want to be a part of your life. From reciting the Quran, to daily exercise, to journaling, blogging or just breathing. This audio gives you a rundown of how it works by Sumayah from Recite & Reflect, and my guest and dear friend, Nilly. Enjoy 🙂 For more on Begin with Barakah, take a look at the latest posts on the blog.

Quran Dreams

2nd - 22nd of Aug 2016

Classical Interpretation vs. Personal Reflection

I wholeheartedly acknowledge the role Tafseer plays in building your understanding and delicately enforcing the boundaries that keep us from falling into outright blasphemy. It goes without saying (although the Recite & Reflect method says just that) that referring to the Tafasir of our scholars is a critical step in reaching the correct understanding.
