SKU: 5187 Category:


The Year 2 of the Revelation Muharram 1-Dhu al-Hijja 29, 12 BH/ ca. November 24, 610-November 12, 611 CE. The text of The Year 2 begins with the continuing revelations. 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 Cairo 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. It begins with Lesson 7 and Quranic Chapter 81, which is the 7th Chapter revealed, followed by Quranic Chapters 87, 92, 89, 93, 94, 103, 100, 108, 102, 107, 109, 105, 113, 114, 112 and, finally, Chapter 53, the 23rd Chapter revealed. Only a few signs of the first four chapters revealed were revealed at the beginning of the revelation, and the remainder at a later time. 73:20 that has been recorded to have been revealed one year later. Therefore, it is in Appendix 1 of Book Year 2. Each lesson begins with an exercise in critical thinking skills, namely: The Nine Intellectual Standards, The Eight Elements of Reasoning and The Seven Moral Traits. The Eight Elements contain thirty-five strategies. However there is no specific order as to how they should be incorporated into our thinking process. Once we understand the critical thinking skills and then apply them to the signs and sections of the Quranic message, we will close the gap between our beliefs and how we live our lives. They will each motivate the other. There will no longer be a disconnect between the two so that we claim to bear witness with our tongues, but our hearts are not on the same page as what our tongue expresses. Once the skills as presented in the Quranic message are put into practice with the grace of God, they coalesce into a sense of unity in our thoughts and behavior. Each lesson ends with questions for classroom discussion or for dialogue and an assessment/assignment for students to use while they are developing critical thinking skills as they hopefully learn HOW the Quran teaches critical thinking. The history describes the early converts among the Messenger’s Companions beginning with Abu Bakr and the men he brought with him. The Epilogue revisits the Quraysh Clans, who each one was. Appendix 2 is a chart showing the correlation of the original chapters with chapters in chronological order.
