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.

As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection consists of three short Surahs. The first is Surah 109 Al-Kãfirün or Those Who Reject Faith. This Surah defines the right attitude towards those who reject faith; in matters of Truth, we make no compromise but there is no need to persecute or abuse anyone for his faith of belief. Tafseer for this selection concerns the matter of personal conviction in Faith.

The second is Surah 110, Al-Nasr or the Help. This Surah defines victory as an occasion to celebrate Allah's praises, not as a reason for exultation.

The third is Surah 110, which goes by two names; either Al-Masad which means The Plaited Rope or Al-Lahab which means the Flame. While directed at a particular person named Abu Lahab, the Surah illustrates that he who rages against holy things is burnt up in his own rage and that women, who are made for nobler emotions, may, if they go wrong, feed unholy rage with fiercer fuel, to their own loss. Tafseer for this Surah contains some historical background on Abu Lahab and his wife.
