Attendance:
  • 1  Sister
  • 1  Junior Sister
Location:  Headquarters
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)


  • OPENING DUA
All praise is for Allah who gave us life after having taken it from us and unto Him is the resurrection.
الحَمْـدُ لِلّهِ الّذي أَحْـيانا بَعْـدَ ما أَماتَـنا وَإليه النُّـشور


Al-hamdu li-l-lâhi l-ladhî ahyânâ bacda mâ amâtanâ wa ilayhi n-nushûr




  • QURAN RECITATION
We read Surah Fatihah 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 Ali-Imran from Ayat 1  till Ayat 15.  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’S TALK
Sisters shared their research on the names of Allah chosen the week before. Click on each name to read more.

  • LEARN A DUA

From today’s reading:  Surah Ali-Imran
( 8 )  "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower.
( 9 )   Our Lord, surely You will gather the people for a Day about which there is no doubt. Indeed, Allah does not fail in His promise."


  • TECH  TALK
Sister Winnie has come across two websites that in sha Allah, will be useful for learning the names of Allah, Most High.




  • VIDEO
We decided to watch a selection of Islamic Children’s video’s with our Junior Members








  • CLOSING DUA
The Expiation of Assembly - Kaffaratul-Majlis
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.


Reference: Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi and An-Nasa'i. See also Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi 3/ 153. Aishah (RA) said: "Allah's Messenger (SAW) did not sit in a gathering, and did not recite the Qur'an, and did not perform any prayer without concluding by saying ... (then she quoted the above)." This was reported by An-Nasa'i in 'Amalul-Yawm wal-Laylah (no.308), and Dr. Farooq Hamadah graded it authentic in his checking of the same book, p. 273. See also Ahmad 6/77


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.
