Halaqa # 68

Rabi’ Al-Akhar 21, 1438


Year 3
  • 4 Sisters
  • 1 Junior Sisters

Location: Sister Sara’s Home
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)

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. Ameen

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 Al-Anfaal from Ayat 34 to Ayat 52.  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.


We discussed the idea of reading the translation of the meaning of the verses after we read
the Arabic. If any verse stands out to us, and we like to reflect on it, then we do that in sha
Allah following the translation of the meaning. Sisters liked this idea and said it would help
them solidify the meaning and help with understanding the verses more.

Sister Megan read the translation of the approximate meaning from verse 34-48 and Sister
Mona from 49-52. (

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
