The 17 Verses Podcast: Distilling the Qur'an One Day at a Time

The 17 Verses podcast is a short, daily recitation of the Qur'an in spoken English. Our purpose is to enable busy Muslims (or non-Muslims) to be exposed to the Qur'an each day, delivered to their phones/iPads/etc. If you average approximately 17 verses per day, you can get through the entire Qur'an in about a year. The Qur'an can definitely feel intimidating but if it's taken in small pieces, it needn't be so. So join us as we go through the Qur'an every day.

Year 2 - Surah 36 (Yâ-Sin), Verses 1-32

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 36, Yâ-Sin, verses 1-32. These are pretty short verses so this episode won't take longer than the normal time. This selection reveals that the Qur'an was sent as a warning to those who fear Allah and seek forgiveness. An example is given of the time when Allah sent three Prophets to one town but the entire town rejected them except one man. It is told Allah blessed that believer with paradise and destroyed the wicked who opposed God.
