Critical thinking and the Chronological Quran in the life of Prophet Muhammad by Laleh Bakhtiar
About the Book
Year 16 of the Revelation Muharram 1-Dhu al-Hijja 29, 3 AH ca June 24, 624 CE- June 12, 625 CE The Lessons in Book Year 1 through Book Year 24, including Book Year 16 presented here, are numbered consecutively in order of the revelation (23 years and less than 3 months) of a Quranic Chapter.
Each Lesson begins with a critical thinking (furqan) standard, strategy or Quranic moral trait.It is important to note that when learning HOW to think, which the Quran teaches, there is no specifically correct answer.
It is going through the process of Quranic understanding that we learn HOW to think. In addition, Quranic signs or verses (ayat) of each section (ruku) in a particular Quranic chapter are given in each lesson followed by a well-known Commentary, a Student Assessment and questions or assignments in Developing Quranic Critical Thinking Skills.
An Appendix correlates the original Quranic chapters with their chronological order for easy reference.
