Khatam Quran and begin again.

Sisters Yasra and Maryam jointly read the following article:

How to Develop, Maintain and Model True Islamic Identity

Amanah Sisters are please to announce a new initiative, a Book Club.
In sha Allah, we will be covering a wide variety of Islamic Books through this Book Club.  
Our format differs from traditional book clubs in that we will only cover a sampling of each 
book, leaving it up to individual sisters to decide if they would like to read the book on their 

Sisters will be encouraged to provide their feedback on the sections covered as well as their
impressions of the book if they decide to read it completely. Communication will be via joint 
emails plus we will be having a Book Club segment as a regular part of our Halaqa in sha Allah.

This is open to all members, but only those who join the Book Club Email List will receive the 
updates etc.  To join, just send a request to us.
In sha Allah, we will be announcing our first chosen book at the next Halaqa.
  • NEXT HALAQA and Upcoming Events

Why aren’t you Grateful  (29 min) Nouman Ali Khan

For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering. To listen to this dua click here

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.
