Tafsīr of Sūrat Yūsuf
Instructor: Sajid Ahmed Umar
The Qurʾan was revealed not just to be read, nor merely to be memorised; but also that its verses are pondered over. Let AlKauthar Institute take you on an epic journey that you will not forget. In two packed days we will be taking a journey from Palestine to Egypt via a tafsīr of Sūrat Yūsuf.
