What else does the Quran contain?

The Quran contains all the rules for us to have healthy lives, alhamdulillah.

I love the Quran - Nasheed featuring Zaky 1:35





In what month was the Quran revealed?

On one of his (saws) visits to the cave, Angel Gibrael (as) came to him. At first, the Prophet (saws) was scared but he soon realized that there was no harm that would come to him. Angel Gibreal came to the Prophet to inform him that Allah had chosen him to be his Messenger. This happened during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan.

What was the first revelation?

The first revelation from Allah (swt) through the Angel Gibreal to Prophet Mohamed (saws) was the first five verses of Surah (chapter) Al-Alaq:
"Iqra bismi rabbikalla dhi khalaq. Khalaqal insana min alaq. Iqra wa rabtukal alrram. Alladhi 'allama bil qalam. 'Allamal insana malam ya’lam, ""Read in the name of your Lord who created, created man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is mostGenerous, Who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what he does not know." (96: 1-5)

Everything Song with Zaky, Maryam & Fatima  4:03





What was the first complete Surah to be revealed?

The first complete chapter of the Quran was Al Fatiha (The Opening).


The Quran was revealed over ________  years.

How many Surah’s have you memorized?





Ramadan Video

Sister Rim wanted to share with everyone the following video.



Throughout your existence, there are angels in your presence. But it’s your actions that cause those angels to either praise you or disgrace you. Through this series, we will explore the actions that invite these blessed unseen beings to pray upon you, and carry your name and mention to the One who created us all. Join Sh. Omar Suleiman for an all-new series this Ramadan!

Halaqa # 149

Ramadan 14, 1441 AH,

Ramadan Stay Focused

Year 7

Attendance: 
8 Sisters
7 Junior Sisters                                                          
5 Junior Guests

Location: Online


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: 




Opening Dua

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: Reciting

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.   

Quran: Tafsir

Surah Al-Kahf  verses 35-45 

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 
Sister Alia read part 3.

Verse 37-41

Verse 42-44

Between Wealth and Good Deeds
Verses 45-46


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. 

Quran: Tajweed

We are following a book from our library that is not copyrighted.
Tajweed for Beginners  Prepared by Qari Ismail Essack
Sister Shimaa created two mind maps of the lessons we have taken thus far.

Sister Shimaa shared the following video as a review of the letters and an introduction to next week's lesson. 


Break 20 minutes


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.


Omar & Hana | Dua Before Sleeping | Islamic Songs for Kids | Nasheed 2:04


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?


Homework:


Try to learn a new dua this week and say it to us in next week’s Halaqa in shaa Allah.
