Ramadan 14, 1441 AH,
Ramadan Stay Focused
7 Junior Sisters
5 Junior Guests
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
During the Covid-19 “stay at home” order, we have decided to hold our Halaqa online using Zoom.
In sha Allah, every Thursday, we will have two adjoining sessions with a small break in the middle. If you would like to join, please get in touch with us.
Session One 10:30 AM:
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.
O my Lord increase me in knowledge*. رَّبِّ زِدْنِى عِلْمًا Ameen
We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then Sister Alia read Surah Al-Kahf verses 35-45 followed by Sister Rim, reading the English Approximation. 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.
Surah Al-Kahf verses 35-45
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Alia read part 3.
Between Wealth and Good Deeds
Discussion: Being stuck at home, has made us realize that a lot of things we thought essential to our lives
are not so important. These things kept us busy all the time, and now we are realizing how wasteful they were,
using up our valuable time and even money. Probably when things get back to the way they were, we might
fall back into our old habits, but in sha Allah, we will have a renewed perspective and keep all the good habits we are developing now during Ramadan and during our isolation.
A way to teach children about life and how it renews is to use a simple gardening activity in your home.
The miracle of life and the miracles around us that prove the existence of Allah. How mankind is so wrong
to dispute who is responsible for everything.
We are following a book from our library that is not copyrighted.

Session Two 11:30 AM:
Children’s Focus Talking To Allah, swt
How can we talk to Allah? How does Allah talk to us?
What could we say to Allah, swt when we feel the following?
Make a glitter jar, shake it and try to recite some Dhikr while the glitter settles.
What things do you do before you go to sleep?
بِاسْمِكَ اللَّهُمَّ أَمُوتُوَأَحْيَا Bismika allahumma amutu wa ahya.
In Your name, O Allah, I die and I live.
What do you do if you want to go out for a drive with your parents?
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي سَخَّرَ لَنَا هَذَا، وَمَا كُنَّا لَهُ مُقْرِنِي وَإِنَّا إِلَى رَبِّنَا لمَُنْقَلِبُون
Subhaan alladhee sakh-khara lanaa haadhaa, wa maa kunnaa lahu muqrineena,
wa innaa ilaaa rabinaa la munqaliboon.
Glory to Him who has brought this [vehicle] under our control, though we were
unable to control it [ourselves], and indeed, to Our Lord we will surely return.
Do you know any other dua’s?
Try to learn a new dua this week and say it to us in next week’s Halaqa in shaa Allah.

A Temporary Gift

"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

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.
