Patience & Hajj

Year 2
  • 7  Sisters
  • 5  Junior Sisters
  • 3  Junior Guests
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)

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

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 122
till Ayat 147 . 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 Sara presented a talk about Patience.  To read a copy of her talk, click here.
Following the talk, sisters participated in a discussion about practical ways one can show compassion to others.

"None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without
partner. To Him belongs all praise and sovereignty and He is over all
things omnipotent."
لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْـدَهُ لا شَـريكَ له، لهُ المُلـكُ ولهُ الحَمـد، وهوَ على كلّ شيءٍ قدير
Lâ ilâha illâ l-lâhu wahdahu lâ sharîka lahu, lahu-l-mulku wa lahu
lhamdu, wa huwacalâ kulli shay’in qadîr.


In sha Allah, our next Halaqa will be held on Thursday September 17th, 2015 outdoors at the Celebration Square in front of the Mississauga Library from 10 am-12 noon. Sisters and children are encouraged to attend.  

Sister Winnie briefly went over a talk originally presented in Halaqa # 12.

Sister Winnie was very excited to talk about a great comprehensive online website for learning about Hajj created by Islamic Bulletin.

They have compiled an online collection of multiple resources in various formats
including multi-language guides, apps, maps, books and an interactive desktop
She encourages you to check out their website by clicking on the following links:

If you have a desktop computer, you can learn about the Hajj and Umrah journey in a sequential mode. English Version  or the Arabic Version

Apps for Iphone or Android (the android app is from Darussalam Publishers and Distributors)

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.
