This is a special format Halaqa for the children. They all gathered around at the start and participated enthusiastically. In sha Allah, we hope to hold Holiday Halaqas for the children a few times during the year.
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 each sister read a small surah from the Quran while the children listened carefully.
We all watched the following video, then the sisters asked the children various questions about the video.
Quran: Learn Arabic
We all watched the following video, then we played a fun interactive game using flashcards.
Learn a Dua
We watched Zaky's Little Reminder Before We Sleep 3:28
We had a Q & A session following the video with both the sisters and children asking and answering questions.
The children gladly chose from our small selection of snacks and then sat on our picnic mat to continue our Halaqa.
We watched the following video and then discussed it together.
Sisters Alia and Mai led us all in a Dua to thank Allah for our blessings and to grant food, health, and blessings to those in need.
Children’s Knowledge Session
Each child had a turn to recite a portion of the Quran or answer a few simple questions that they were sure to know. Then they each received a small present that their moms chose for them from the Halaqa gift bag. The oldest child started the session and the youngest child finished it.
Following the end of the Halaqa, some children had great curiosity about the “Halaqa gift bag” so we allowed them to have a look and exchange their gifts if they wanted.
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.
