B: What is the difference between the words Ar-Rahman and Ar-Raheem

10: Sources of Tafseer. 5

11: give me 3 signs that relate to signs that apply to reading the Quran. Example, what letter represents the compulsory stop sign, etc. 5

Extra credit. This would be based on what you have memorized by me since the start of this class. Tell me what you have memorized and I would give you extra credit. If you feel you do not need to tell me, or do not need extra credit, then this would be fine as well.

  14. Asalamualikum, students:
    Some did not show up for the exams. i can understand as to why. The idea was not to make things difficult for you. It is to help make our minds more active in the pursuit of knowledge. Listening to speeches online etc. are good, but as you can note, learning and making your own speeches, being questioned for what you say can be so much more rewarding and ‘correcting.’
    In all honesty, each of you that were ‘strong’ enough to take the exam, all i can say is congratulations. It shows you care so much more than i thought.
    As for the extra credit, you can add on 5 points for each surah learned with a max of 20 points to your total. Since i was ‘soft’ on the grading, i would not really push for extra credit. *smile* But if it makes you feel good, go for it.
    Again, to me, you all did super. I cannot ask for anything better at this time.
    wasalam
