What will I learn from this course?

Dive deeper into the Qur’an this Ramadan. How does the Qur’an describe the contract and covenant we made with our creator? And how do we fulfill it in our life? This course will answer these questions and more. 

What will you gain from this course? 

1. A familiarity with examples from the Quran of fulfilled and broken covenants deepening your connection and appreciation of the Quran. 

2. A re-energised commitment to honouring your pledge with Allah. 

3. The tools and ability to better navigate the obstacles between you and your Creator. 

The Quran is filled with mentions of pledges, covenants and contracts: those upheld and those broken. Ramadan is the time to reflect and renew our commitment to upholding our covenant with Allah. 

Shaykh Ahmed Saad is an expert in Quranic language and its linguistic nuances and will take students through many of these examples, with linguistic cultural and spiritual analysis. 

We look forward to having you with us and making this a transformative Ramadan!

Course Structure:

  • Lesson One (17th March): What is a 'Covenant'? This session will cover the various meanings and forms of a covenant by exploring its linguistic nuances, spiritual meanings, and implications.

  • Lesson Two (24th March): What is 'The Covenant'? In session two we will explore what is the specific covenant that is mentioned in the Qur'an and are there more than one.

  • Lesson Three (31st March): What distracts us from this 'Covenant'? In this third session, Shaykh Ahmed will look at the obstacles that distract us from fulfilling our role and what we can do to navigate these obstacles and stay focused.

  • Lesson Four (7th April): In this final session we will take a look at examples in the Quran of fulfilled and broken 'covenants' comparing and contrasting them so students can obtain a clearer understanding.

All lessons will take place live over Zoom from 2-4 pm London Time and will be recorded and available permanently, for anyone who enrols on the course, via the Teachable platform. Click on the Zoom link within each session to join that session.


This course is unlike any other, not just in its subject but also in delivery. The concept of covenant is rarely spoken of but Shaykh Ahmed will draw upon various fields such as the linguistic nuances as well as spiritual implications bringing them all together with examples from the Quran in a simple and easy-to-understand way.
