Arabic 205: “Qisar Mufassal” Arabic Analysis of Zalzalah-Masad

Welcome to Arabic 205: “Qisar Mufassal” Arabic Analysis of Zalzalah-Masad (Part 1)

This is a linguistic study, breakdown & exegeses of the shorter chapters of Quran from Surah Zalzalah (99) to Masad (111).

The Quran is categorized into different sections. From these sections is what’s known as “Qisaar al-Mufassal” قِصَار المُفَصَّل. This term refers to the shorter chapters at the end of the Mushaf, hence the name “Qisaar”. It is known as “Mufassal” because of the frequent number of breaks in which the Basmalah (“Bismillah al-Rahmaan al-Raheem”) appears.

This categorization begins from Surah ad-Duhaa until Surah an-Naas. In this course, will study Surah Zalzalah (99) to Surah Masad (111).

We will break down these 12 Suwars, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, word by word. We will do so by studying the vocabulary in each verse and specific word choice therein. We will also derive essential grammar, morphology (Sarf),
and Balaagha principles in each verse. And finally analyze the overall meaning (which will also include benefits in Aqeedah, Hadith and Usul al-Fiqh) provided by scholars of Tafsir.

A pre-requisite for this course is Arabic 204: Arabic Analysis of the 4 Quls. However, one can enroll in Arabic 204 & 205 simultaneously.

This course is suitable for BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, & ADVANCED levels. Students should be able to read Quran, however, it is not mandatory. Because these are chapters in which many Muslims have memorized, students of all levels will be able to benefit. Please read students’ reviews of Arabic 204 if you are unsure if this is your level.
