Book 12 Critical Thinking and the Chronological Quran in the Life of Prophet Muhammad


SKU: 5201 Category:


The Year 12 of the Revelation Muharram 1-Dhu al-Hijja 30, 2 BH ca. August 6, 620 CE-July 26, 621 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 12 presented here, are numbered consecutively in order of the revelation of a Quranic Chapter. Here, in Book Year 12, we begin with Lesson 76, that is, Quran Chapter 52 which is the 76th Chapter revealed followed by Quranic Chapters 67, 69, 70, 78 and, finally Lesson 81, Quranic Chapter 79. 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 Second Pledge of Aqaba by seventy-five men and women from Madinah during the month of Dhu al-Hijja. Appendix 1 correlates the original Quranic chapters with their chronological order.
