Bird’s Eye View

About


The main purpose of the Bird’s Eye View of the Quran is to present brief summaries of the Quran page by page. Some of the benefits are:

§  You can learn the general message of the Quran page by page

§  You can remember the key message of the verse or group of verses while reciting

§  It can generate further interest in learning and understanding the Quran

§  It can be a Daur-e-Quran (going over the brief message of the entire Quran in 26 sessions) which is valuable particularly in Ramadan.

Some details of the methodology are:

§  15-line Quran is used, a soft copy of which can downloaded here

§  Verses on each page are grouped based on a common message and the key pointers1 and some obvious lessons where possible are highlighted on the side. However, for detailed explanations, you should refer to translations and tafseer books.

§  The sessions are divided into 26 parts and each part is presented separately.

 1 Pointers are general indication of the key meanings in the verses, they do not necessarily capture every message but give general idea.
