CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD:
THE GRAND PARABLES


Your safety matters. Due to COVID-19, this Sessions will be live-streamed online on YouTube.

Overview

Allah is The Light of the heavens and the earth. His light is like a niche in which there is a lamp, the lamp is in a crystal, the crystal is like a shining star, lit from the oil of a blessed olive tree, located neither to the east nor the west, whose oil would almost glow, even without being touched by fire. Light upon light! Allah guides whoever He wills to His light. And Allah sets forth parables for humanity, for Allah has perfect knowledge of all things.
– (Surah An-Nur, Ayat 35)

Language is one medium of expression that allows for the eloquent communication of ideas and thoughts. One of the hallmarks of excellence in language is the use of metaphorical markers and analogies that clarify, with immense detail, the very concepts that have been intended for transmission between minds. The very peak of language and prose is identified by self-elucidating parables that unfold in an almost infinite manner, enabling our thoughts to derive intricate meanings that expand the horizons of language.

The Quran has undoubtedly been established as the benchmark for the Arabic language. The Quran’s linguistic characteristics have been distinctive in nature, carrying its own identity as The Words of God, delivering the message of Islam in a way that captivates thought through intimate conversations that intertwine imperative messages of faith and linguistic examples worthy of the highest praise.

Our Conversations With God shall continue, as we study the metaphors and parables of The Quran, learning the fascinating use of language that facilitates metaphorical thinking and multiplies profound meaning.
