3 Junior Sisters
Location: Our Headquarters
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.
O my Lord increase me in knowledge*. رَّبِّ زِدْنِى عِلْمًا Ameen
QURAN: READINGWe read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then sisters individually read aloud a few words, ayahs (according to her ability and with the help and encouragement of her fellow sisters). We read Surah Al-Israa verses 28-38. 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.
We learned about the vowel marks, in particular, the Sukun.
The sukūn ⟨سُكُون⟩ is a circle-shaped mark ـْـ placed above a letter. It indicates that the consonant to which it is attached is not followed by a vowel. The sukūn may have also an alternative form like a small comma ـۡـ
We played a few verses from Surah Al-Israa recited by Sheikh Husary to listen for the sukun letters.

O Allah, As-Salaam, we know that all peace and safety comes from You alone.
O Allah, Al-Mu’min, we know that You are the Source of Faith and Giver of safety.
For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering. To listen to this dua click here
"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.
