The Jurisprudence and Tafsir courses have helped me with my confidence in answering people’s questions and knowing where to navigate for legal rulings and the vast range of Tafaasir books. The Sibawayh course has helped polish my Arabic, and in return led to a greater feeling of spiritual upliftment.
