One of the first lessons a Muslim parent teaches their child is how to read the Qur'an. However, the thing that is often overlooked is to teach its meaning as well. The exegesis of the Holy Qur'an is done by the Imam who has learned from some of the most learned scholars of Islam today. The Tafsir of the Holy Quran is done slowly verse by verse but the true message of Islam is brought to light with the correct context and proper translation. Tafsir isn't about simply translation of the Quranic text rather it is the interpretation of the subtle, hidden, and deep messages of the Qur'an. Hence, we encourage everyone to join this blessed program with your entire family and understand the message of Quran in English
