Halaqa # 24

Asma ul Husna Part 6
  • 5  Sisters
  • 4  Junior Sisters
Location:  Headquarters (upstairs)
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)

At a sitting or gathering… listen to this dua click here

195 - "O my Lord, forgive me and turn towards me (to accept my repentance). Verily You are The Oft-Returning. The Oft-Forgiving."

رَبِّ اغْفِـرْ لي، وَتُبْ عَلَـيَّ، إِنَّكَ أَنْـتَ التَّـوّابُ الغَـفور

Rabbi ghfir lî wa tub calayya. Innaka anta t-tawwâbu-l-ghafûr.

We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then sisters individually read aloud a few letters/words, ayahs (according to her ability and with the help and encouragement of her fellow sisters).  We read Surah Ali-Imran from Ayat 71  till Ayat 91.  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.

During our Quran recitation, when Sister Winnie read her few lines, the sisters all corrected her saying “ you said a yaa, not a taa” .  But she insisted she didn’t make a mistake. Sister Sara looked at the Quran Sister Winnie had and discovered that in fact Sister Winnie had inadvertently picked up a Quran that was Warsh.  Many of the sisters were new to this and Sister Sara decided that she would present a few talks on the topic of the 10 Qira’at in sha Allah at upcoming Halaqas.

Sisters shared their research on the names of Allah chosen the week before. Click on each name to read more.

We watched a lovely childrens nasheed called “99 Names of Allah” produced by Huda TV. To watch this video, click here.


Sister Winnie shared some articles and a book relevant to our topic
  • This article is About Allah, Subhanahu wa Ta'ala (Praise to Him in His Highness), as He has described Himself in the Holy Quran. It starts with some of the verses which deal with the topic directly, then a list of God's Good Names follows with interpretation of their meanings from some of the renowned Islamic scholars.

196 - "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.
