In this course, we will seek the answers to such questions in the universe itself and discover that the revelation is a special lens through which we can see the truth underlying the reality. We will also zoom in to a few key areas in science such as evolution, the big bang and neuroscience.

Learn how to see the creation through the lens of the revelation. Explore key discoveries in science and how revelation sheds light on them. Learn how reflecting on the creation is a part of the path to grow in belief.

Some Topics to be Covered:
- History of Science
- Creation of the Universe
- Soul & Neuroscience
- Evolution & Intelligent Design

About Course Instructor

Shaykh Abu Nahla has been teaching for 33 years in the field of Dawah and Tarbiya. He studied Islamic Shariah in Palestine and the Sciences of Tasawwuf in both Palestine and Egypt. He obtained several Ijazahs from his well-respected teachers and has become a leading expert in his field. He has also become known for conducting unique Quranic Tarbiya intensives.

Tarbiya touches upon all sciences, including but not limited to Quran, hadith, tasawwuf, and fiqh. While many have never tasted the fruit of tarbiyya because of fear or misconceptions around tassawwuf and Sufism, Shaykh Abu Nahla manages to deliver the best of the fruit in his intensives: the fruit that is aligned with the Quran and Sunnah and bound by Shariah.

He appreciates the truth and studies all facets of the deen to gain a better understanding and obtain the most comprehensive view of Allah's religion.. Shaykh Abu Nahla's main concerns are the revival of lost Quranic concepts, the true understanding of Islam, as well as Tarbiya and the sciences of application. He is trying his best to improve the condition of the Ummah by serving the revival of true Islamic concepts.

We at Noesis and all who know the Shaykh pray for his success and the spread of his knowledge. And we wish that everyone has the opportunity to meet, study with, and benefit from this source of knowledge and wisdom. Amin.

About the Second Course Instructor
Ustadh Faheem Khatri is a student of Quranic tarbiya and science enthusiast. He holds a degree in computer science and economics and is pursuing graduate studies in physics and math. As a college freshman he faced an existential crisis and began his journey to seek the truth. He discovered the Quran as the best lens to see the truth beneath the creation. Since then, Faheem has been pondering the Quran while exploring nature: particularly by hiking in the wilderness and studying cosmology, quantum physics and evolutionary biology. He has also studied Islamic sciences such as aqeedah, tafsir, seerah, fiqh, usool al fiqh, ilm ul-iman, arabic, and Islamic finance with several scholars.
