Course Description

Bring your ritual prayer to life: learn the invocations (du‘as) we recite during the salat. Beginning with the opening supplication, each week you will learn a new supplication and its significance: its linguistic composition, its placement in the prayer, and how it fits more broadly within the Qur'an and hadith. The course concludes with a study of the eleven opening verses of ‘The Believers’ (Surah al-Mu’minun), in which the essential qualities nurtured through ritual prayer are described.
