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

*Part of ayah 114 Surah Taha(20)

Quran: Reciting

We read Surah Fatihah aloud altogether, then Sister Alia read Surah Al-Kahf verses 62-74 followed by Sister Mai, reading the English Approximation.  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: Tafsir 

Surah Al-Kahf verses 62-74

We have chosen to use Tafsir Ibn Kathir   Volume 6 

Sister Alia continued reading part 1 from our previous Halaqa and then parts 2 and 3.

  1. The Story of Musa and Al-Khidr

Verse 60-65

  1. Musa meeting with Al-Khidr and accompanying Him

Verse 66-70

  1. Damaging the Boat  

Verses 71-73

  1. The Story of killing the Boy

Verse 74-76


The bird that took a sip of water from the sea and how it was nice imagery and way to reflect on the knowledge of Allah. 

How Al Khidr story teaches us that Allah’s decree will not always be understood by us while we are living on this earth.  We have to trust in Allah swt.

Dua Al-Ghaib

Sister Alia led us in a Dua for a sister and her family who recently suffered a devastating fire.

Umm Salamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “No Muslim is afflicted with a calamity but that he should say what Allah has commanded him:

If he does so, Allah will replace it with something better.”

Source: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 918

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Muslim

عَنْ أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ أَنَّهَا قَالَتْ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ  مَا مِنْ مُسْلِمٍ تُصِيبُهُ مُصِيبَةٌ فَيَقُولُ مَا أَمَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِلَّا أَخْلَفَ اللَّهُ لَهُ خَيْرًا مِنْهَا

918 صحيح مسلم كتاب الجنائز باب ما يقال عند المصيبة

Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Allah we will return. (2:156) 

O Allah, reward our sister and her family in their affliction and replace it with something better than it. 

Ya Allah, the Ever-Living the Ever Sustaining, it is Your mercy that we hope for, so do not leave our sister and her family in charge of their affairs for a blink of an eye, and rectify for them all of their affairs, non has the right to be worshipped except You.

Oh Allah the most Merciful, ease the pain and suffering of our sister and her family and guide them through this test, bless them and grant them comfort and contentment 

Oh Allah all praise belongs to You, protect them from all calamities and evil. You have power over all things.

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.
