For those who are studying the second chapter of al Quran, here are some links to audio file on the tafsir (exegesis) of the surah.
Umar al Faruq r.a. spent 8 years learning this surah, and if we do not start now, I wonder when we will finish.
Abu Usama Ath-thahabi:
He converted to Islam in 1986 and applied to attend the University of Madinah as was the practice of many new converts to Islam at that time. He completed his BSc in Usool-Ul-Deen and learned the Arabic language. After his graduation from the University, Abu Usamah went to teach in the UK before returning to the US in 1996 in order to pursue his first position of Imam inOrlando, Florida. He was an imam at a mosque in Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Peoria before he moved to the UK, where he surfaced briefly in Keighley before moving to Birmingham to take up his place at Green Lane Mosque.
Dr Saleh As-Saleh (rahimahullaah) was from the foremost students of Shaykh Ibnul–Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah). He took knowledge from the Shaykh from a long distance for a while, then on a continuous basis from 1412-1415H and then regularly from 1415H where he became a dedicated student and studied with him until his death in 1421H. Dr Saleh lived around 500 yards from Shaykh’s Ibnul-Uthaymeen’s house and has been blessed byAllaah to have obtained a PHd in Medical Biochemistry and was a professor at Qaasim University, KSA. Furthermore, he was a well-known author of many great writings and books. He resided in ‘Unayzah, KSA and was active in his call to the salafi da’wah.
