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.

Quran: Reciting

We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether. Then Sister Alia read Surah Al-Israa verses 97-104, 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.

Discussing Prophet Musa saws with the children. They shared their knowledge and answered
some of the following questions and then agreed to learn more after the Halaqa. 

What are some of the signs that Prophet Musa was a Prophet of Allah, swt ?

Are you allowed to eat locusts?  

Hadiths two dead animals we can eat, fish and locusts.

Did Prophet Muhammad eat locusts?

No, but he did not prohibit people from eating them 

How did Prophet Muhammad describe the sound a frog makes?

In his Sunnan, al-Bayhaqi included the hadith narrated by Ibn 'Amr (may Allah be pleased with them both):
Do not kill frogs; indeed, its croaking is tasbeeh.
