O Allah, bless this Halaqa, allow us to gain, act upon and share beneficial knowledge. Guide us, forgive our sins and grant us Jannah with our families
and loved ones. Ameen
- 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 An-Nissa from Ayat 80
till Ayat 94 . 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.

- LEARNING ARABIC
Istiqamah استقامه is often translated to mean ‘uprightness, correctness, integrity, soundness’ and so forth. It comes from the root word قام (qama) meaning ‘to rise’ or
‘to stand upright’ and it’s from this that we derive words like مستقيم (mustaqeem)
as in ‘Sirat al-Mustaqeem’ (Straight Path).
Istiqamah is in our words, actions, intentions, and state (our condition). It is
what our character builds upon and it is what determines our destiny on the
Day of Judgment.
- NEXT HALAQA
In sha Allah, our next Halaqa will be held on Thursday August 20th, 2015 outdoors
at the Celebration Square in front of the Mississauga Library from 10 am-12 noon.
Sisters and children are encouraged to attend.

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.
Following the Halaqa, sisters present enjoyed wandering the Farmers Market which was
