Abstract: The Qur’an is overflowing with voices that implore their Lord for favours- many of which we echo day-to-day in our busy lives. But, have we really grasped a deep understanding of the duas we utter?

In this year’s Q-conference, we will highlight five disparate voices in the Qur’an, and explore What, Where, Why, When and How they supplicate. In so doing, we hope to establish the context of these well-known prayers in the Qur’an and reflect on the practical lessons contained therein

Programme: The following passages will be explored during three sessions. Although a study pack will be issued at registration, students are strongly encouraged to read the verses in English and Arabic before the programme.
