رَبِّ اغْفِـرْ لي، وَتُبْ عَلَـيَّ، إِنَّكَ أَنْـتَ التَّـوّابُ الغَـفور
Rabbi ghfir lî wa tub calayya. Innaka anta t-tawwâbu-l-ghafûr.
- QURAN RECITATION
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 92 till Ayat 121. 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.
- SISTER’S TALK

Afterward we chose new names to research.

"Allah is the greatest. O Allah, let the crescent loom above us in safety, faith, peace, and Islam, and in agreement with all that You love and pleases You. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah."

- SISTERS TALK
Sister Sara presented an introductory talk to the 10 Qira’at and played for us a video that had Surah Fatihah read by the same reciter in all 10 Qira’at. The sisters were asked to listen carefully and try to distinguish the subtle differences between them.
A question arose about tafseer videos for children, so we had a look at the following video.

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

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.
