The 17 Verses Podcast: Distilling the Qur'an One Day at a Time
About This Show
The 17 Verses podcast is a short, daily recitation of the Qur'an in spoken English. Our purpose is to enable busy Muslims (or non-Muslims) to be exposed to the Qur'an each day, delivered to their phones/iPads/etc.
If you average approximately 17 verses per day, you can get through the entire Qur'an in about a year. The Qur'an can definitely feel intimidating but if it's taken in small pieces, it needn't be so. So join us as we go through the Qur'an every day.

Tafseer contains an explanation regarding the treatment of unbelievers, or Pagans, as well as a reveal on something you might miss during the recitation. Can you guess what it is?
