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 is from Surah 5, Al-Mâ‘idah or the Repast, verses 1-19. The selection discuss foods which are allowed and forbidden. It lays down guidelines for wudu (ablution prior to prayer) as well as the obligations of fasting and charity. There is a discussion regarding the Christians and Jews, how the Qur'an claims they have strayed from the path and verses originally brought to them. The Qur'an claims that there are no special children of Allah, as is claimed by both groups, given that such groups have from time to time been punished by God. Lastly, Christians and Jews are invited to hear the word of Islam.
