Halaqa # 86

Muharram 29, 1439
Be Thankful

Year 4
  • 12 Sisters
  • 1 Junior Sisters
  • 4 Junior Guests

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

Sister Lamiaa read our opening  Dua.
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 listened to Sister Noura recite Surah Al-Fil.

The above link has both the recitation by Sheikh Husary and the individual word pronunciation
(click on each word) for learning Arabic.

Sisters who practice their reading in sha Allah will have an opportunity at the next Halaqa to have
a sister listen to their recitation. Please arrive at 10 am sharp in sha Allah in that case.
Tajweed rule

Sister Dania presented our Tajweed Rule.
In the throat, there are 3 makhaarij and each one has 2 letters   
Note: Makharrij is an Arabic word for Articulation Point

We then listened again to the Surah recited by Sheikh Husary

Alhamdulillah, Sister Noora has volunteered her time and expertise to teach sisters Arabic and Tajweed.
Please contact us to join our learning Arabic group if you would like to take advantage of this generous offer.


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 Yusuf from Ayah 44 to Ayah 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.
Sister Cindy read an English Approximation (Sahih International) of the above verses.

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir.
Volume 5 Page 170-177 (From our library shelf)
We only had enough time to read the first part of  “Yusuf’s Interpretation of the King’s Dream”
and the first part of “The King investigates what happened between the Wife of the ‘Aziz,
the Women in the City, and Yusuf”.

You can view this tafsir online: Link

Sister Lamiaa pointed out that Verse 52 has two opinions about who is the person speaking.
She informed us that she learnt that “The wife of the Aziz” is the stronger opinion than “Prophet
Yusuf”. We have further researched this and find that indeed the majority of scholars are of the
opinion that it was “The wife of the Aziz” while the minority of scholars are of the opinion that
it was “Prophet Yusuf”

Sister Rim and Sister Cindy read the Introduction: Finding Amr page 13-18
We highlighted the fact that Sister Asmaa uses the Names of Allah, on a continuous basis in her

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.
