Children’s Focus Halaqa #156

We had prepared the children's section, but we didn't have any children attending.


Dialogue


What is this?   Who would wear it?   What does that person do?   



Can anyone tell him what to do?   What if he does something bad, who would punish him?


Who is the king of kings?


Does HE wear a crown?


Do we know what HE looks like?

Discussion: 

Allah, swt, gave us the gift of love, not just romantic love.  This love can take many forms and levels. You can love different people in different ways.  You can get various and different benefits from these different forms of love. Always try to show your appreciation for those in your life that you love.  Whether in person or with a dua.  

When we see a sister in Hijab, there is an instant bond, an instant love for my Muslim Sister.

Dua Al-Ghaib


Sister Alia led us in a Dua for a sister and her family who recently suffered a devastating fire.


Umm Salamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No Muslim is afflicted with a calamity but that he should say what Allah has commanded him:


If he does so, Allah will replace it with something better.”


Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 918


Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim


عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ أَنَّهَا قَالَتْ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ تُصِيبُهُ مُصِيبَةٌ فَيَقُولُ مَا أَمَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِلَّا أَخْلَفَ اللَّهُ لَهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا


918 صحيح مسلم كتاب الجنائز باب ما يقال عند المصيبة



Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Allah we will return. (2:156) 


O Allah, reward our sister and her family in their affliction and replace it with something better than it. 


Ya Allah, the Ever-Living the Ever Sustaining, it is Your mercy that we hope for, so do not leave our sister and her family in charge of their affairs for a blink of an eye, and rectify for them all of their affairs, non has the right to be worshipped except You.


Oh Allah the most Merciful, ease the pain and suffering of our sister and her family and guide them through this test, bless them and grant them comfort and contentment 


Oh Allah all praise belongs to You, protect them from all calamities and evil. You have power over all things.
