The Year 11 of the Revelation Muharram 1-Dhu al-Hijja 29, 3 BH ca. August 18, 619 CE-August 5, 620 CE Each Lesson begins with a critical thinking (furqan) standard, strategy or Quranic moral trait. It is important to note that when learning HOW to think which the Quran teaches, there is no specifically correct answer. It is going through the process of Quranic understanding that we learn HOW to think. The Lessons in Book Year 1 through Book Year 24, including Book Year 11 presented here, are numbered consecutively in order of the revelation of a Quranic Chapter. Here, in Book Year 11, we begin with Lesson 72, that is, Quran Chapter 14 which is the 72nd Chapter revealed followed by Quranic Chapters 21 and, finally, Lesson 75 with Quranic Chapter 32, the 75th Chapter revealed. We are beginning to reach Arabic dates that have been recorded for important events in the life of the Prophet. The listing of the dates according to the Gregorian calendar are complicated and approximate only. That is why they are preceded by ca. The chronological order of the chapters of the Quran that follow throughout the series is based on the list accepted by al-Azhar University in Cairo1 and is considered to be the official order. It differs greatly from the chronological order developed by Western scholars over the centuries and is much more detailed. Quranic signs or verses (ayat) of each section (ruku) in a particular Quranic chapter are given in each lesson followed by a commentary and a Student Assessment consisting of an Example of the Eight Elements of Reasoning and questions or assignments in Developing Quranic Critical Thinking Skills. An Epilogue describes the First Pledge of Aqaba by twelve men from Madinah during the month of Dhu al-Hijja. Appendix 1 correlates the original Quranic chapters with their chronological order.
