Halaqa # 142

Jumada II 26, 1441 AH,

Learn Something New
Year 6
7 Sisters
3 Junior Sisters                                                                   

Location: Amanah Room

Agenda: (please note, we have included many links where you can read in detail more on each subject)

We named this Halaqa based on the fact that each sister learned something new. We shared our experiences and how we have grown from them. 

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

Quran: Reciting

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-Israa verses 87-96.  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.  

Quran: Tajweed

We jointly took a Level 1 Tajweed Rules Quiz

This was a fun, yet academic experience that challenged our knowledge.  As a result of the quiz, we decided to go back to basics and follow a Tajweed textbook in our upcoming Halaqas in sha Allah.

Closing Dua

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.
