For this we will use Juzz ‘Amma, Juzz Tabarak and parts of the Quran for memorization.The surah is followed by explanation of the verses based on the authentic commentary. A “words to know” section provides root and derivatives of several key words used in the surah. This is further elaborated into a word-to-word meaning of the entire surah. This is followed by an “Application of the Message”.
