Safar 9, 1440 AH
2 Junior Sisters
1 Junior Guest
Location: Amanah Room
Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)
Following the results of our recent survey, we decided to make some small adjustments
to our Halaqa to try to incorporate some of the ideas we received. Sisters will be able to
choose what parts of the Halaqa they will like to cover, based on their arrival.
They can pick a section from the ones posted. Also, we will be encouraging more
discussion after each section. (See the yellow highlights)
Today, is a trial of this new format.
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 sisters individually read aloud a few words, ayahs
(according to her ability and with the help and encouragement of her fellow sisters). We read Surah Al-Hijr
verses 1-15. 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.
Sisters read an English Approximation (Sahih International) of the above verses.
Extra: We started reading a new Surah, so we read a short overview of the Surah. https://quran.com/15
Once we finished our Quran reading we implemented our new format. All the different
components of the Halaqa were written on post-it notes and displayed. The first sister
to arrive chose the next section. Then, after that section, the sister who arrived second
chose. This pattern continued on to the end of the Halaqa. Sisters enjoyed this format,
so in sha Allah, we will be contining with it.
We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 5
We chose to read from the following sections.
Every Township has its allotted Time Verse 4, 5
Discussion: We discuessed the tafsir of “Every Township has its alloted time”
Sister Maryum listened to our recitation and then chose to instruct us on the proper recital of the
special letters at the beginning of todays Surah Al-Hijr. We listened to Sheikh Husary’s recitation of the first
four versers from Surah Al-Hijr .
Fitness Tip: It’s all a matter of logic. 10+5-4 = 11
A TEMPORARY GIFT
Sister Rim read: Iddah: Oct 26, 2013 page 62
Discussion: Her reflection is from 5 years ago, how far have we come, we still see
indiscriminate killing around the world.
We watched the following video:
ASMA UL HUSNA
الْمُؤَخِّرُ Al-Muakhkhir: The Procrastinator
The Delayer, the Retarder, The One who puts things in their right places.
He makes ahead what He wills and delays what He wills.
Found In Quraan Ayah(s): (71:4)
Found In Quraan Ayah(s): (71:4)
Source: 99 names of Allah
Discussion: How this concept in humans is a negative, Yet as a name of Allah,
it has such a different meaning.

For the expiation of sins, said at the conclusion of a sitting or gathering. To listen to this dua click here
"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.
