We read Surah Faatihah aloud altogether, then sisters individually read aloud a few letters/words, ayahs (according to her ability and with the help and encouragement of her fellow sisters).  We read Surah Baqarah from Ayat 30 till Ayat 48.  In sha Allah, this will be an ongoing part of our halaqa and one day in sha Allah, we will have Khatam Quran and begin again.

Sister Rim presented a very informative talk on Wudu, according to the way Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him performed it.

  Topics included:

  • Common mistakes or innovations people make in Wudu
  • What is and is not considered to void Wudu.
  • Benefits of Wudu.

After her talk the sisters delved more into the topic of purification in regards to menses and decided that we should have a halaqa with that topic.   Stayed tuned!  


The Excellence of Remembering Allah

Sister Winnie presented a dua taken from The Quran reading earlier:

Surah Baqarah: Ayat 32

Sister Sara presented a heartfelt talk on Dua - Weapon of the Believer with personal reflections on how her life has been positively impacted by Dua. Some sisters shared their own experiences with Dua’s and how Allah, Most High,  can answer you Dua in ways you did not expect.

Subhaanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdika, 'ash-hadu 'an laa 'ilaaha 'illaa 'Anta, 'astaghfiruka wa 'atoobu 'ilayka.

Glory is to You, O Allah, and praise is to You. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but You. I seek Your forgiveness and repent to You.

If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.  If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
