5 Junior Guests
Location: Online via Google Meet
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 Google Meet every Thursday morning. Update: For the remainder of June, our online Halaqa will be held on Fridays. If you would like to join, please get in touch with us.
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 46-53 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 47-53
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 6
Sister Alia read part 3 then part 1.
Sister Shimaa’s Eid Tajweed Quiz for Sisters
Sister Shimaa led us through a Tajweed quiz that she created based on the lessons she has taught us thus far. Here is an online version of her quiz so you can test yourself.
We had great fun completing the quiz together. Congratulations to Sister Alia and Sister Mai and their children for winning the competition. They each received a lovely gift package from Sister Shimaa.
Children’s Focus: Smiling
Look at the picture, what do you think we will talk about today?
Can you show us your happy faces?
A smile is always on your face when you are happy!
What things make you happy?
Can you show us your angry/sad faces?
A frown is always on your face when you are angry/sad!
What things make you angry/sad?
Mom’s make a happy face, then Mom’s make an angry face,
What makes mom’s angry?
What makes mom’s happy?
Children, which do you like to see, the happy face or the angry face?
Each child was sent to find something that makes them smile and then present to everyone.
Meanwhile, Sister Winnie read the following:
Also when I see my child smiling at others I will provide positive reinforcement by saying to him, “I like the way you smiled at …..” or when he smiles at me I will say, “I like the way you smiled at me. It makes me feel happy.”
Use a cardboard box or tin, decorate it if needed, fill it with slips of paper, each one has a hadith written on it.
Every week, have a hadith session with your children. They remove one slip of paper and then the mom’s read and explain the hadith. For the entire week, the hadith is reinforced with crafts and activities.

"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.
