The Year 9 of the Revelation Muharram 1-Dhu al-Hijja 30, 5 BH ca. September 8, 617 CE-August 28, 618 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 9 presented here, are numbered consecutively in order of the revelation of a Quranic Chapter. Here, in Book Year 9, we begin with Lesson 62 which is the 62nd Quranic Chapter 42 revealed followed by Quranic Chapters 43, 44, 45, 46, 51 and, finally, Lesson 68 and Quranic Chapter 88. 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. A short paragraph describes the Eight Elements of Reason and then a paragraph titled Example of How Quranic Critical Thinking Works. The paragraph that comes after this is for the student to determine which of the statements are one of the Eight Elements of Reasoning. Each Lesson ends with a Student Self-assessment. Economic Sanctions continue for the Hashim clan of the Messenger. Appendix 1 correlates the original Quranic chapters with their chronological order.
