Taken from today’s reading.  To listen click here

ربنا اننا سمعنا مناديا ينادي للايمان ان امنوا بربكم فامنا ربنا فاغفر لنا ذنوبنا وكفر عنا سيئاتنا وتوفنا مع الابرار

Our Lord, indeed we have heard a caller calling to faith, [saying], 'Believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, so forgive us our sins and remove from us our misdeeds and cause us to die with the righteous.  

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 187  till  Surah An-Nissa Ayat 6. 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 Winnie heard this Dua earlier in the week and wanted to share it.
Oh Allah, be content with me and grant me contentment in my heart.
Allahumma irdinni, wardah anni.

She tried to see if it was from the Sunnah but hasn’t been able to find any information on this dua. If any of our members know this dua or something similar please share in the comments of this Halaqa.
Sister Winnie shared a website she came across for Learning and Listening to Quran called:
When you click on any Surah, you are taken to a new page with a complete list of Quranic Chapters on the left. At the top is a drop down menu to choose a reciter.  You can listen to an ayah or have it repeat over and over. You can also choose your translation from a drop down menu on the top right.  
One of the features she especially liked was that you could see the translation of each Arabic word simply by hovering over it. Also, there is a search box that allows searches in Arabic, English and other languages.
Sister’s present read aloud an article written by Kareem Elsayed posted on titled:

Action Steps

The sisters present decided on some “homework” for the next Halaqa.  Each sister would work on her private list of “Ramadan Goals” and would answer the question “Did you prepare your List?”  at the next Halaqa without revealing the details of her goals.
As you know, Amanah Sisters recently launched two blogs, AS Halaqa and AS Library. We originally intended to keep these Blogs private, but since launching them, we have discovered limitations to having them private. After consultation, our Shura Council has decided to make both Blogs public.  This will in sha Allah, allow the information we share to reach a larger audience and in sha Allah, provide benefit.  Also, by having them public we will be able to offer more features on the blogs and it will allow our members to share the blog easily.

196 - "How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You. I bear witness that None has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."

سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka.

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.
