Nouman Ali Khan has a gift to simplify the complexity of the Quran in such a beautiful way that the message of the final sacred book resonates with people in everyday life. He is without a doubt the most popular sought out speaker in the West. He provides a full concise commentary of the Quran on his popular Bayyinah TV website. It requires a monthly subscription of $11 Dollars a month.
I subscribed to Bayyinah a few years ago and have gone through a few chapters. I have decided to start releasing my notes. They cover every verse in the Quran based on Khan’s commentary. There are verses that Khan does not cover or does not provide enough commentary on, in which case, I refer to other books of Quranic exegesis (tafseer) to derive the meaning. In such cases, I label them by giving the name of the book at the end of the sentence in brackets.
I initially began this project in order to build a reference for every verse in the Quran for myself. I wanted to be able to go to any verse in the Quran and understand its general meaning and quickly derive the lessons it holds. Now, I not only want to do this for myself but want others to benefit from it as well.
Please note that I did not write down every single detail that Khan provided for the verses but only that which I personally found intriguing and to highlight the basic message of the verse. I am still going through the lectures and editing the notes so I will release each chapter as soon as I complete it insha’Allah. The list below is what I have completed so far.
These notes are free so please take advantage of them and I hope you can use them to build a strong relationship with Allah’s final book sent to the world and draw closer to Him. Please help share this page with your family and friends.
If you want to support me in this project, then please do so by making a donation. It helps me with the costs of running this website and paying for various subscriptions including Bayyinah. If you can consider becoming a recurring donor, even with just $5/month, then it will make a huge difference!
I initially began with al-Fatihah and al-Baqarah but then decided it would be better to start from the back of the Quran, at least until Surah al-Qaf, after which, I will begin from Surah al-I’mran. I am currently working on the rest of the chapters. As soon as I have them finalized, they will be available as well insha’Allah. If you have any questions, please contact me.
April 2020 Update: I have had some people contact me requesting update on the rest. I try to upload two chapters a week but sometimes it could take longer due to other obligations in my life. Please understand that it takes time to listen, note down, and revise the notes before final publication. Sometimes I have to refer to other books if he is not very clear on certain verses or if it does not make sense to me. In short, I am trying to go as fast as I can with the time that I have available. I would suggest to check this page once a week to see if any new chapters have been uploaded or not. I hope you like them as much as I did while typing them down!
